This 1905 photo shows what was Paterson’s Great Furniture Warehouse. The redevelopment includes business premises in the existing floors and apartments to the new floors above. Former first floor tenant Rice Queen relocated to Brunswick St as the redevelopment began and the space was recently advertised. The finished apartments are planned to look like this.
