The Mansions

The Mansions is a heritage listed set of six three-storied terrace houses located on the corner of George Street and Margaret Street, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The building is significant because few terrace houses were ever built in Brisbane and even fewer remain intact today.


They were built during the Victorian era in 1889 for residential use. The classic Italian design was created by G.H.M Addison using plain red bricks. Cat sulptures on the building's parapet were rendered in New Zealand limestone.
