This project upcycled a 1970’s Commercial Building in a premium position, adjacent Sydney’s Domain Gardens, overlooking the twin spires of St Mary’s Cathedral and onward to the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Harbour, to one of Sydney’s landmark residential addresses. Surprisingly, the Project converted well from the office building functionality to a quality residential layout. Penthouses at upper floors are uniquely spacious and grand. The project involved detailed appraisal of existing structure, and refurbishment of the existing tower to suit the adjusted use. This project has achieved the highest residential values in Australian history.
