APP was engaged in 2017 to provide Superintendent and Project Management Services for the landmark building on behalf of United Development Sydney.
Designed by Candalepas Associates, the mixed-use development comprises a 36-storey 5-star hotel and residential tower and amenities, alongside a major heritage restoration project. At 150 tonnes, the trusses form the backbone of the building and will allow the next 25 levels to cantilever out 12m over the 140-year old heritage-listed Porter House building below. The restored Porter House will be home to a café, restaurant, bar and conference facilities to service the hotel.
As the site is squarely in Sydney’s CBD, APP’s project team was required to liaise extensively with myriad stakeholders including TfNSW for the Sydney Metro adjoining the site and Transurban/RMS, for the Cross City Tunnel below the site.
Sydney’s newest iconic high rise is set for completion later in 2021.
