First impressions have been released of the soon-to-be-launched 26-floor King and Phillip Residences in the heart of Sydney’s legal precinct.
A collaboration between real estate funds manager The Galileo Group and development partner Industry Superannuation Property Trust, the USD$320 million apartment project will have its sales launch in September.
The site is located at the intersection of King, Phillip and Elizabeth Streets, set amongst an iconic Sydney heritage precinct containing St. James Church, the Supreme Court Building, Hyde Park Barracks, and St. Mary’s Cathedral, with sweeping views across Hyde Park.
The Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (FJMT)-designed project is a redevelopment of Sydney’s former law campus at St. James.
The site was acquired in 2015 for about $45 million, and following Stage 1 DA approval in December 2015, a competitive design process was undertaken in 2016, with the design by FJMT chosen by the selection panel.
The 92-meter-high building will consist of 104 apartments across 34 configurations. There will be five penthouses.
The site bounded by Phillip, King and Elizabeth Streets was home to Sydney Law School until 2009, set in a 1970s campus-style building.
Construction will start later in 2017, with completion expected in 2020.
