The tower is expected to get Stage 2 Approval from the City of Sydney this year, with Blackstone then officially beginning its marketing campaign. Units are expected to be priced between $8 million and $30 million each.

I very much like the combination of simplicity and detail in the design, and if the renderings are accurate, that article is right; you'll get some stunning views, living here. It seems as though relatively low floor heights are quite common in Australian residential towers.

A 1960s skyscraper called "Goldfields House" currently occupies the site.

Yes, a very big change considering it is part of the ''face'' of Sydney at Circular Quay.

It's also part of a greater upgrade of an entire city block. When completed, the site will be home to 4 x 100m+ new towers. Aside from this there are two office towers (1 x 155m and 1 x 200m) and one residential tower (110m) that are in the development pipeline. The 200m tower is most evident in the third picture (block form).

The Valad purchase secured the Gold Fields House site in Sydney's Circular Quay, 149 Castlereagh Street, also in Sydney; the Spencer Street DFO outlet mall and the former Pentridge Jail development site in Melbourne.

Blackstone inherited 20-odd buildings when it bought Valad.

While it is widely expected that Blackstone will convert Gold Fields House into a super-luxury residential tower, to be known as One Sydney, a source said Blackstone was still to make a decision. "One option is to leave it as it is. It works both ways -- as an office block or a residential tower. The owner is still making money leaving it as an office tower," said an industry executive.

Blackstone is expected to make a decision in September. Its decision will also be affected by Dutch pension fund APG, which has a 40 per cent stake in the Valad V-Plus Core Fund, a co-owner of the building.

The office building is 65 per cent occupied. If it stays as an office tower, Blackstone is expected to refurbish the building and upgrade the lobby area.

The firm has commissioned Robert Booth, best known for the world's tallest residential tower Burj Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, to create the concept and develop a global marketing campaign for One Sydney.

"Buyers of super prime apartments have been calling the firm asking to be put on the waiting list for when it starts to market the project," said another source.

Blackstone has planning approval to build 187 apartments on the property, described as "one of the best residential sites in the world". It has up to six years to redevelop the site.

Bump! This project is back

Dalian Wanda Group to redevelop prime Sydney Circular Quay block
THE AUSTRALIAN JANUARY 27, 2015 12:00AM
Kylar Loussikian


CHINESE real estate giant Dalian Wanda Group and its Hong Kong-listed property company will *embark on a significant redevelopment of a prime city block at Circular Quay in Sydney after buying the landmark Gold Fields House from the Blackstone-owned Valad Property Group and its funds for $425 million.

The move sees the Chinese developer, controlled by billionaire Wang Jianlin, stake a claim to one of Australia’s most prominent sites just as the entire harbourside precinct edges towards a huge redevelopment with AMP Capital, Stamford Land Corporation and Mirvac Group all undertaking major projects.

It also marks out Australia as an increasingly important market for Wanda and its founder, who are already backing a $1 billion apartment and hotel complex on the Gold Coast, as well scouting for further properties in Queensland and the ACT.

Wanda’s Australian subsidiary is jointly owned by Mr Wang’s unlisted Wanda HK and Wanda Hotel Development Company, which listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

“Wanda Group has recognised the iconic location, and intends to create a mixed-use development, including a 5-star hotel, luxury residential and retail. We look forward to creating a new Sydney landmark,” Wanda Group said.

Wanda also snapped up Fairfax House at 19-31 Pitt Street, adjoining Gold Fields House, from Richard Gu’s AXF Group for $73m, and could be considering further acquisitions on the block, including Mr Gu’s Rugby Club building and three other Lend Lease-owned properties.

Now the initial Wanda deals have been struck, more co-operative manoeuvres are tipped for the harbourside block bounded by *Alfred, Pitt, Dalley and George Streets. Lend Lease and AXF had been in talks to form their own joint venture development on the block. The pair, along with Mirvac Group, which is also an owner on the block, have held talks with the City of Sydney to create a single plan for the precinct.

The emphasis will change as Wanda has flagged a switch away from an existing Blackstone scheme for 197 luxury apartments across two towers. Instead, it signalled it would redevelop the 3602sq m site it has assembled into a high-end mixed-use hotel, residential and retail complex, with demolition of the existing buildings, in 2017.

The developer has set aside another $110m for future acquisitions within the precinct. Lend Lease owns the two old Westpac buildings on the block, at 182 George Street and 33-35 Pitt Street, as well as the Jacksons on George pub.

The Australian group has submitted plans for a 40,000sq m to 60,000sq m office building on the site and had appointed JLL to find a backer last year. This was suspended during the Gold Fields process and Lend Lease is tipped to renew its search for a capital partner as the area takes shape.

The Australian first revealed Wanda was the prime contender for Gold Fields House last November. Wanda saw off interest for the site, held as a joint venture between Valad Property Group, its V-Plus Fund and Dutch pension fund APG, from Sydney businessman Victor Comino as well an international funds manager that considered an office project.

And it sounds like Dalian Wanda will run with the existing approved design.

This development is now known as Wanda One Sydney. It will comprise two towers - 1 x 59 storey / 197m residential tower with 184 apartments and 1 x 28 storey / 110m hotel tower with 182 rooms.

A DA was lodged for the hotel tower today. It is designed by Kengo Kuma and Crone.

Construction on both buildings will commence in 2017 and the whole development is expected to be completed in 2020.
