Overall the place is in fair condition. It has been maintained to facilitate ongoing use. However, the roof and roof drainage, first floor verandahs (dangerous and unusable) and balustrades, asbestos-clad enclosures, timber detailing and arched enclosures are in poor condition. The vacant interior areas at the first fllor requires attention for their deteriorated ceilings, walls and floors. The basement is in fair condition although there is some fretted mortar and damage to infill walls and grilled vents. The ground floor is predominantly in use as a supermarket and is highly maintained and in fair to good condition. Syd’s Corner and the ground floor Macartney Stree verandahs and enclosures are badly weathered and deteriorated, and in poor condition. The place has high integrity and moderate to high authenticity.
