Wall Street Mall drops glazing panel to George Street

Late afternoon those of us refuelling at a local café in George St heard a sudden crash of glass across the road – broken glass littered the footpath, parking spaces and north-bound lane outside Wall Street Mall.

The mall’s street facade had suddenly dropped a glazing panel, a section of pretend parapet – from the very top of the (graphic) ‘old-building’ screen.
Luckily, no-one was hurt.

Camera phone not coping too well with the late sun angle but you get the idea.

A well-known woman sitting along from me said she’d never liked that glass design anyway.
