An early milestone has been reached on what could become the tallest residential tower in Sydney’s CBD when completed in 2019. Standing at 237 meters in height, the Sydney Greenland Centre is being built for developer Greenland – China’s largest state-backed real estate group – at 115-119 Bathurst Street.
The building will feature 479 apartments and include a 2,000-square-meter “Creative Hub” leased for 99 years to the City of Sydney.
Probuild has announced that the 12-month demolition phase is now complete, with the final piece of concrete being removed from the remaining steel structure and the final slab hammered on the site. They started work earlier this year after the initial contractor Multiplex parted ways with Greenland in May of 2016.
Having reached this major milestone, the demolition contractor, Delta Group, will now finish demobilizing its machinery and workforce, with Probuild’s presence on-site becoming more apparent in coming weeks.
Meanwhile, the design team has been working on a planning application with the Sydney city council, including progression of construction documentation, façade shop drawings, the Creative Hub milestone, and the public art strategy.
Greenland Centre’s 479 apartments in the 68-story tower will be a combination of one-, two-, and three-bedroom designs featuring panoramic views encompassing Sydney Harbour, the city, and parklands. Penthouses and sub-penthouses are also incorporated in the design.
