Administrative / Biographical history

The AMP Building adjacent to Circular Quay is a 25 storey tower of Post war International Style built in 1962. The building is historically significant as the first building to officially break the 1912 Sydney height of Buildings Limit of 150 feet and thus become the tallest building in Australia, at the time of its construction. During the 1960s, taking photographs from the roof of the building was a popular past time.
