Built in 1932, the Manchester Unity Building houses twelve stories of offices, residential units, and retail spaces. The building is clad in glazed terracotta faience and crowned with a turreted gothic style tower.

The arcade includes Melbourne’s first escalator, an elaborate mosaic floor, black marble, and polished brass, and copper plated elevator doors. It’s also home to Switchboard and Mediterraneum cafés.

Other tenants include Smile Solutions orthodontic centre and a number of long established dental practices. The building is also home to a large number of Melbourne's jewellery traders.
