'The construction of the present Harbour View Hotel in 1924 was a joint venture between the Government, who owned the land and Tooth & Co., who provided the capital. By 1927 it provided a convenient watering hole for the thirsty workers constructing the Harbour Bridge. As with many hotels in the urban area, the hotel gradually fell into a poor reflection of its more illustrious past, but it has now been completely refurbished. The building's significance has been recognized by the various authorities, having an order placed on it in 1989 by the Heritage Office and listing Permanent Conservation by the same authority in 1999 on the State Heritage register. The Council of the City of Sydney has included the hotel in its Local Environment Plan as a building of local Significance.'
