Location and History
Located at the intersection of Grosvenor, Cumberland and York streets, The Grosvenor location is only 250 metres from Wynyard Station and at the entrance of the Historic "The Rocks” quarter of Sydney. This beautifully restored heritage building overlooks Lang Park, St Patrick's church and is only minutes from Circular Quay ferries and the Australian Stock Exchange.
Constructed in 1921 by architect William Henry Foggitt, prominent in the history of Sydney, 18 Grosvenor Street hosted several important government agencies, including the NSW Housing Board, Resumed Properties Department and the Department of Agriculture. In 1930 the NSW Prisons Department took over occupancy, until 1974 when the NSW Police Department relocated to this building.
The building was fully restored in 1970 and extensively refurbished for its present purpose in 1997. However, most of the original features remain including the vault, once used to store weapons and ammunition, can be viewed in what is now the main corporate boardroom – available for use by all members of the UOS network.
