Historical Notes: This building was planned to be built on the site of the RSA building in Ghuznee Street, purchased from the Nestle Company in 1974. It included new RSA clubrooms. The land valuation of the Ghuznee Street site had gone up from $800,000 to over 1 million dollars. As a consequence, annual land tax payments had risen from $4,000 a year to $32,000. This forced the RSA to consider redevelopment as a way of surviving the growing tax burden. The project was never built, and the original Nestle Company building still stands in Ghuznee Street.
