Thank you sir, you are an amazing source of knowledge for our generation. I got to know that this building has been taken over by the Army now as it is within the ultra HSZ, but with the development plan in place for the region it should be released within the next couple of years (we hope). You would be happy to know that many of the buildings in the area (Pagoda building, Lloyds building) are being renovated and restored to their past glory. Cargills building also the plan is to renovate it and make it a large hotel/shopping complex. I hope one day they will open up the GPO building, that I have seen in many pics but have only a vague recollection of seeing in life many years ago
