Not a traditional urbex post, but yesterday I got to go on a tour of the unused floors and rooftop of Perth's Bon Marche Arcade. Currently only the ground floor and parts of the second and fourth floor are in use.
Here are some pics.


When it was built, this was the tallest building in Perth.

i LIKE it Poppa! Old historic buildings have so much character. Pic #1 looks like a cozy apt. Cool arches in the hallway too! Why are the upper floors unused?

It's a trend in the Perth CBD, businesses are de-centralising to the suburbs and rents are crazy high in the city. Also, as beautiful as the building is, getting office equipment in there with the one tiny lift available or going up the fire escape would be a huge chore.

Pic 1 would be a dream apartment! The view in Pic 5 is from that room. Barrack Street is one of the busiest in Perth. I can picture myself sitting by the open window, listening to the traffic below and sipping cheap bourbon and coke expensive scotch.
