Harris Terrace: 80 George Street. Brisbane, Queensland

Harris Terrace is one of Brisbane’s rare terraces.  Built in 1867 by local businessman George Harris who named the terraces for himself and designed by J & G Cowlishaw, Harris Terrace was aimed at providing accommodation for the Brisbane bourgeoisie.   It was renamed “Harris Court” following the common nomenclature for prestige flats in the 1920s, however the name and date on the central parapet plaque remains.
