Few more images of ANZ bank Tower opened earlier in the year, and small plaza in it's back yard.

The AMP Centre (1976) is set to be redeveloped. Under the plan, the existing tower will be retained but the floorplates will be enlarged to its north.

The height would be increased to 232 metres. Additional floors would be added to make the tower 53 levels tall. Approval of the concept has been approved by Sydney City Council and now proceeds to the next stage. There will be an international design competition for the tower.

The block to the west and directly opposite the tower would be redeveloped in Apartment buildings and boutique office Space. The cost of the redevelopment is estimated at $AUD1 billion ($US900 million).

Our building boom – the biggest in 30 years

- Sydney acknowledged as the building capital of Australia

- Harry Triguboff says “biggest boom in 30years”

- Lend Lease in possible $1 billion Sydney CBD deal



ABIS was told that the local construction industry is now in the midst of a boom not seen since the pre-Olympics.

Billions have been invested in new and existing properties around the state, after being in the wilderness over the last 10 years.

Billionaire Harry Triguboff, Australia’s 6th richest man, declared that the boom was the biggest he had witnessed in almost three decades.

Mr Triguboff is the Chairman and Managing Director of Meriton Apartments which is Australia’s largest residential property developer and he is excited about the new record amounts of spending in the building industry.

Mr Triguboff lays claim to building more than 50,000 homes and units since the establishment of his business in 1963.

‘For many, many years, we have under-built in Sydney. So now we are catching up to pent-up demand’, Mr Triguboff said.

Over the last 6 months, the total number of construction cranes in Sydney grew by 27 % with Brisbane noting a 15 % rise against Melbourne’s 7 %.

Multi-billion-dollar development approvals include the Sydney Convention Centre, Barangaroo and parts of Darling Harbour, all of which have seen the skyline filled with an ever increasing number of cranes.

New figures from Rider Levett Bucknall report Sydney’s crane index. The index highlights a city’s construction strength by recording the city’s daily crane activity. Those activities are now the highest in Sydney, nearly doubling those of the nearest competitor capital city which is Brisbane.

Developers including Lend Lease, Mirvac, Macquarie Bank and AMP Capital have spent a combined $804 million in the last two years on inner-city real estate and intend to put more cash up to develop sites.

As of December, the NSW State Government had approved more than 350 major projects since March 2011, with a total capital investment value of about $40 billion.

ABIS is aware that overseas investors told New South Wales Treasurer Mike Baird on his recent international trip that the world considered New South Wales as the world’s project capital.

ABIS also understands that Lend Lease is currently in discussions with the Sydney City Council about three CBA sites at 174 and 181 George Street, Sydney and 33 Pitt Street, Sydney. The company intends to build a $1 billion office development facing Circular Quay in Sydney’s beautiful harbour.

Mr Triguboff, who was quoted as being worth an estimated $4.5 billion, said that “the improvement in Sydney was because interest rates had dropped and people started, at last, to make some profit on their old purchases”.

With Crown Resort, there will soon be lodgement of a Development Application to the NSW Government for approval.

Meanwhile there is another major urban renewal project in the planning for inner Sydney. A 3km corridor above railway lines and surrounding areas is being subject to plans for major development.

Nine News (7/3/2014)
Nine Network Australia

Brad Hazzard (NSW Planning Minister) speaks about plans to redevelop the airspace but also other parts of Sydney.

This development is to be located near Green Square station within the redevelopment precinct that is being built there. It's about 4km south of the central business district.

Meanwhile back in Central Sydney, Tony Owen Architects have won a design competition for a mixed use hotel and apartment tower.

The building will be 35 levels/117 metres tall.
