Tallest Building Complete in $8 Billion Green Square Town Centre


Landcom and Mirvac have announced the completion of Ovo, the tallest tower at Green Square town centre.

The 28-storey ellipsoid-shaped tower, located on the corner of Bourke and Ebsworth streets, will be home to more than 600 new residents.

Mirvac has highlighted the project as one of the most complex it has ever delivered with approximately 1,800 panels in 134 different shapes and 17 different colours used across the buildings facade.

“Mirvac’s vision is to reimagine urban life and OVO is testament to that,” Mirvac managing director Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz said.

“It is an iconic building that transforms the skyline and is the result of extensive planning and collaboration between Landcom, City of Sydney, FJMT and Mirvac.”

The Ovo is the tallest building in the $8 billion Green Square Town Centre development.

Landcom chief executive John Brogden said the completion of the flagship Ovo building was a great example of a successful urban renewal project that had transformed a former industrial area into an attractive, sought-after community.

“Landcom has been given a new mandate from the NSW Government - to take a lead role in improving the supply, diversity and affordability of new housing in Sydney and NSW,” Brogden said.

“Landcom is meeting this commitment by working with government agencies and private sector companies, such as Mirvac, to deliver a range of housing types that are sustainable, innovative and attractive places to live at various price points across Sydney.”

According to government estimates when fully completed in 2030, Green Square’s total population could reach 53,000.

Green Square remains one of Australia’s most significant urban transformation projects.

Spanning 287 hectares, the precinct is undergoing $8 billion worth of investment over the next ten years to deliver a new global village for Sydney, including approximately 2,000 apartments.

Mirvac has submitted an application to the City of Sydney for four towers to be constructed at Green Square.

The $240 million mixed-use development, known as GS15, will be located on the edge of Zetland’s heritage precinct and will range from seven to 22-storeys with added retail and commercial facilities.

Earlier this year, the $32 million Green Square community and cultural precinct designed by architect Peter Stutchbury opened to the public.

A new public park is also under construction on a disused block of land in nearby Waterloo.

Dyuralya Square will be at the heart of the Lachlan urban renewal precinct, a 15-minute walk from the Green Square town centre.

Sydney-based developer Crown Group has also unveiled plans for their major urban renewal project in Waterloo.

The total development will comprise 384 luxury apartments across five buildings, ranging from four to 19-storeys and a mix of restaurants, cafes and shops.
