Work is set to start on four competition-winning apartment buildings in the city.
Ray White Sydney City Precinct’s team found this article riveting! We are excited to view sneak peeks of the four award winning new apartment buildings when the construction processes commence.
“After a series of keenly fought design competitions, work is about to start on four new apartment buildings whose winning blueprints are set to transform the skyline of Sydney.
At Circular Quay, final negotiations are under way for two residential towers, one of 55 storeys, on the site of the old office block Goldfields House, while the development application has been resubmitted for the 22-level Stamford on Macquarie that will replace the Sir Stamford hotel.
At Pyrmont, work is beginning on Harbour Mill, designed around the remnants of the old flour mill by the western distributor, and in Haymarket, excavations are under way for The Quay.
The competitive element was introduced during Frank Sartor’s time, and was adapted from the process that’s often demanded in Europe, particularly in France and Germany, for the design of public buildings. With past design successes including The Hyde and The Residence, both at Hyde Park, and the city’s Lumiere, World Square and Portico, other councils in Australia are looking at introducing similar programs. Australia Tower at Sydney Olympic Park was the result of a similar design competition.”
Ray White City Precinct was excited with the newest additions to Sydney’s CBD. We have had much success with rental properties in the Lumiere and Portico residential buildings.
