History The History of City, Australian Capital Territory, can be summarised by stating that the city was established with the intention of it being a commercial centre for the area. The first major buildings planned for the commercial centre were Melbourne and Sydney Buildings which were designed in the "Inter-War Mediterranean style". Major changes to Griffin's plan affected the City, including abandonment of a city railway and a reduction in the widths of some streets including London Circuit which was originally planned to be 61 m and was reduced to 30 m. The Monaro Mall opened in 1963 and included a branch of David Jones department store. The northern end of the mall is now known as the City Walk.The first retail store in Canberra was Murray's store, which operated from a house built in 1874 on the glebe of St John the Baptist Church. It burnt down in 1923. Griffin's plan separated the national centre, the administrative centre of the city, now the Parliamentary Triangle, from the Civic Centre, the principal commercial area. The commercial centre was planned to be on what Griffin described as the Municipal Axis which was projected to run north-west from Mount Pleasant.
