By 1870, large, purpose-built wool stores were built – many of them being striking monuments of the rapid increase in
the production and export of wool.
Today, the only buildings surviving in the Quay Quarter precinct from the 19th century are the Gallipoli Memorial Club building on Loftus Street and the former Hinchcliff Woolstore on Young Street.
The heritage restoration of these significant heritage buildings has been an important part of the Quay Quarter deelopment, with the vision of providing a rich, story-filled canvas for contemporary uses.
