The City of Sydney Council unanimously approved Dalian Wanda's development proposal, which includes a 57-storey 184-apartment residential tower and a 179-room hotel.
The project, located on a 4040 sqm site bounded by 1 Alfred Street, 19-31 Pitt Street and 31A Pitt Street, will include four penthouses.
