The Dominion Building is a historic structure on the corner of Mercer Street and Victoria Street in Wellington, New Zealand. Originally designed as the headquarters of The Dominion Post newspaper, it is now home to a mix of apartments, offices and retail areas.
A distinctive seven-storey building of some elegance, The Dominion has a frontage of stone imported from Caen in France and interiors of Queensland marble. The building follows the bend in the road. Its most striking feature is topped by a copper-covered tower with a lantern turret.
