Located in The Rocks district of Sydney, near Barangaroo Reserve, the 87 metres tall Sydney Harbour Control Tower was constructed in 1974 to direct shipping in the Harbour.
It was decommissioned in 2011 and demolition of the Tower is planned to begin in March 2016, so I shot these images of the iconic tower just in time.

EDIT: 3rd Oct 2016.
I should have included this older image which puts the tower into perspective:
