The Gloucester Arcade has been demolished.

Demolition workers made short work of bringing down the building this morning, located at 131 Gloucester St.

The arcade used to house many shops and restaurants including Antonio's Bar, the Yakiniku Sunshine Restaurant and  Osaka Japanese Cuisine.

A Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera) spokesman said the buiding was the subject of an owner-initiated demolition. 

"The demolition plan was approved and work commenced last month," he said.  

The building is in the designation for the Performing Arts Precinct.
