After more than two years of construction, 100 Mount Street, North Sydney has reached its highest level, marking a milestone for this landmark building.
100 Mount Street is a 35 Level, new-generation office building spanning 42,100 square metres, that has become the tallest commercial tower on the North Sydney skyline.
Owned by Dexus and Dexus Wholesale Property Fund and built by anchor tenant Laing O’Rourke, the one-of-a-kind development has already attracted strong interest from innovative businesses, such as NBN Co, and is 63 per cent leased ahead of its expected completion in 2019.
The building’s prominent features include an open public space at ground level and two ground-floor retail areas, End of Trip Facilities providing amenities such as change rooms, showers and lockers with naturally ventilated breakout spaces, a highly-efficient double skin facade which significantly reduces solar heat load as well as basement parking for 113 vehicles. 100 Mount Street was also designed to achieve a 5-Star Green Star Design and As-Built V1.1 Rating and a 5-Star NABERS Energy Rating.
“We are excited to be leading North Sydney’s revitalisation through the creation of our premium office development which will bring around 4,000 workers to the North Sydney CBD,” voiced Dexus Chief Investment Officer, Ross Du Vernet, at the building’s ‘topping out’ ceremony.
The event was joined by Member for North Shore, Felicity Wilson MP, Member for North Sydney, Trent Zimmermann MP, and North Sydney Mayor, Jilly Gibson, who congratulated Dexus and Laing O’Rourke for their commitment to North Sydney.
“[100 Mount Street] will enhance the vibrancy of the North Sydney CBD through the activation of a prominent corner, bringing this area of the CBD to life through the provision of new retail and restaurants for the local community,” Mayor Gibson said.
She spoke highly of the project team’s engagement with local community groups to ensure a legacy for the North Sydney community.
“It’s fantastic to see the project team so engaged with local groups such as the Greenway Tenants Association, which has benefitted from IT support and fundraising activities that have secured a minibus for faster access to hospital and social outings.”
“Students from North Sydney’s Monte Sant’Angelo Mercy College have also benefitted from the project, gaining invaluable exposure to the mechanics of construction on 100 Mount Street through Laing O’Rourke’s inspiring STEM+ (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Program which encourages female students to follow an educational and personal development path within STEM subjects.”
