Former Hydro Building

The former Hydro Electric Commission Building (late 1930s) now Hobart City Council, is located in the CBD of Hobart and is a strikingly bold example of the Art Deco style. If Holyman House is Launceston's Art Deco gem, then this would have to be Hobart's. It's central spire still lights up a neon yellow most nights, and the top floors were originally apartment blocks.
