Probuild and Greenland Australia have commenced aboveground construction at Greenland Centre, a $400 million plus residential tower in Sydney. Delivered under a design and construct contract, once complete the 235-metre residential building will be the tallest of its kind in Sydney.
The project has reached a key milestone, with the commencement of new structure works to support the existing steel frame from the 1960s being incorporated in the project. A 44-storey tower will be built above the existing steel frame, making a total of 68 levels including the rooftop.
This iconic addition to Sydney’s skyline will house 479 spectacular 1, 2 and 3-bedroom luxury apartments, plus stunning sub-penthouse and penthouse residences. A unique design excellence feature of the project is the ‘Sydney Balconies’, true indoor-outdoor connections with the glass-fronted balconies providing protection from wind and noise.
Probuild’s Group Managing Director, Simon Gray said they have worked closely with City of Sydney to provide an excellent design that enhances the city’s skyline.
“The use of the existing steel frame pays tribute to Sydney’s architectural past, while the Sydney Balconies provide an insight into Sydney’s future city living.”
Greenland Australia’s Managing Director, Sherwood Luo said the project will complement the site, bringing new life to the location and the ‘Diamond in the Sky’ will positively impact Sydney’s skyline.
“We are committed to investing our international strength, alongside local knowledge, in collaboration with the City of Sydney and its community.”
The building will also include a 2,000-square metre Creative Hub over five floors in exchange for more floor area as part of the voluntary planning agreement reached between Greenland Australia and the City of Sydney. The creative space will be managed by Council under a 99-year lease for the practice of dance, theatre, music, film and the visual arts.
Greenland Australia is committed to delivering the Greenland Centre in the first half of 2020. Probuild is currently delivering two projects for Greenland Australia, Greenland Centre Sydney and Omnia. Omnia is another iconic project that will become the gateway building to Sydney’s Potts Point.
