Magna Plaza (Postkantoor)

This building, which is supported by 4560 piles, was designed by C.G. Peters in 1899 to be a central Post Office. The architect's detractors have labelled the building's style "postal gothic". Today it has been reinvented as a shopping centre named Magna Plaza, in which 40 stores line bustling arcaded galleries.
