Developer Ecove is about to launch the first apartment tower - Boomerang - on Olympic Boulevard at Olympic Park in Sydney.
Boomerang will be built on the corner of Sarah Durack Drive, within 400 metres of the Olympic Stadium and overlooking the Aquatic Centre and the new training ground and facilities for the GWS Giants AFL club.
Designed by Bates Smart, the tower’s boomerang shape is believed to be a first for a residential building in NSW. While difficult and expensive to construct, the shape provides several advantages.
Firstly, the curved corners will minimise downdraft and wind impact to the public domain below.
