Warehouse and offices at 12 Hanover Street1863 and 1889
Of soft red brick with terracotta detailing around the windows and chimneys that rise dramatically above a balustrade, the building is in a prominent position at the junction of Hanover Street, Duke Street and Paradise Street, and makes a theatrical statement as it turns the corner.
Of four storeys and twelve bays, the ground floor has round-headed windows with sloping basement windows below. The third bay, off Duke Street has a cart entrance to serve an inner court that gives access to the loading bays of the warehouse.
Above the main entrance are canted oriel windows, and the full length of the building at first floor has an iron balcony. At the top of the building is a Lombard frieze with balustrading between the chimneys.
