History:
Visual Description: A landscaped urban space paved in a geometric patterned facebrick, consultant C. Todd Welsh in 1981. The Market Square has great historic signigficance in the development of Port Elizabeth and is surrounded by many buildings of historic importance. The new design has isolated the Market Square from its immediate urban context and from the link to the quay side of the harbour. Elavating the surface of the square has resulted in the loss of historic facades as well as staircases leading up to the City Hall.
