I've updated the demolition date from 1958 to 1961. Please could you let us know the source, for reference?

I've found confirmation of the completion date in the 1905 PWD Annual report:

The remaining large blocks of buildings on the Praya reclamation east of Pedder Street, including "Hotel Mansions", "King's Building", "York Building" and "Royal Building", were completed during the year.
