A Sydney-based development group is set to launch a glittering new tower in the heart of Sydney’s city.
Crown Group has announced the $250 million Sydney by Crown will launch this spring and is set to be the only new apartment building in the CBD to be launched and begin sales before the end of the year.
Crown Group today revealed the architectural elements of the landmark 220-apartment development at 161 Clarence Street.
Designed by internationally renowned Koichi Takada Architects, the 25-storey building will feature heritage-inspired lower levels transitioning to a modern glass-and-steel tower, capped with more than a dozen steel arches.
The unique arches will envelope the tower’s rooftop bar and garden,forming a striking addition to Sydney’s skyline.
Lower levels will include an eight-storey cathedral-like atrium rising 20-metres above street level over a new public laneway between Kent and Clarence Streets incorporating historic Skittle Lane.
The tower will be within walking distance to Sydney’s new waterfront precinct at Barangaroo, new Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Wynyard station and Darling Harbour.
Sydney by Crown’s spectacular rooftop will feature water features and greenery as well as a rooftop bar open to residents and guests.
Construction is scheduled for completion in 2017, with apartment sales set to begin on November 22.
