Drawing of proposed new street connecting Armagh & Gloucester Street
In 1929 a company, New Regent Street Limited, was formed to develop the site of the Colosseum. The company's architect, Francis Willis, who specialised in the design of movie theatres, decided that the street should be built in the Spanish Mission style with buildings in New Regent Street featuring some of the classic traits of the style, such as the shaped gables, medallions, tiled window hoods, and barley-twist columns.
