The Metro is steeped in the history of North Melbourne. Its builder, George Johnston, was either a very careful or a very prudent builder, in-as-much as it took him 6 years to complete the building, for which they thank him. The building is a splendid example of a well-built Victorian icon.
Jeff and Suzanne Marshall, proprietors of the Metropolitan, empathize with the attention to detail encompassed in the building and have restored the best parts in keeping with the grandeur of the era (lead-lighted windows, high ceilings, sympathetic lighting and color scheme) without sacrificing the creature comforts.
Built in the Victorian period in the Mannerist style, the Meat Market complex comprises a market hall with 16m span timber arches and a perimeter structure with offices, shops, bank, hotel and cooling chambers (added 1889-90). Other major additions were made in 1906-8 and 1918-22 (arches: Gibbs and Finlay). The two storey rendered brick facades are decorated with the giant Corinthian order.
Metropolitan Meat Market is classified by the National Trust and the Victorian Heritage Register. Metropolitan Meat Market, including the Metro hotel is protected by state law.
