It is thought that the commercial component of the tower (90,000 sq m GFA+) is fully leased by KPMG and the building's developer Lend Lease.

Details should be confirmed in the next few weeks

That looks a little bit too similar to the C4 Tower for my taste. I wish they would have come up with entirely different designs for each of the towers.

I agree, but I think C5 is the best looking of the Barangaroo commercial towers (colour scheme, podium and shape). Would have preferred C3 and C4 to be different.

Lend Lease and KPMG have taken 75% of the space in C5 which guarantees its financial viability

Quote:
KPMG Press Release;
http://barangaroo.com/media/75833/we...nt_22.6.12.pdf

Points to Note;
- KPMG has taken 34,000 sq m across the top 15 floors
- KPMG has signage rights
- KPMG lease is effective 1 January 2016 (so assume structural completion of tower in 2015)
Also here is a video of what the three commercial towers will look like together upon completion

Confirming what has already been posted, but think we should have the Westpac press release in the thread.

Quote:
WESTPAC COMMITS TO NEW BARANGAROO DEVELOPMENT
Westpac Group today announced it has committed to a long-term lease as an anchor tenant at Sydney’s Barangaroo development.
Westpac is currently located in nine sites across Sydney’s CBD, and the new site will enable the Group to consolidate into two locations - its existing head office at 275 Kent Street and the new Barangaroo building. Westpac expects to occupy the new building from 2015. Westpac will take 60,000 square metres in the Barangaroo building currently known as “C4”. Lend Lease has agreed to purchase two Westpac-owned buildings at 182 George Street and 33-35 Pitt Street.
Westpac Chief Executive Officer, Gail Kelly, said: "Bringing our Sydney CBD teams together in the landmark Barangaroo development and our nearby Westpac Place headquarters will enable our employees to benefit from an attractive, highly efficient and collaborative working environment in a vibrant financial services centre.”
“This development will also be Australia's first large-scale carbon neutral community, which is important to Westpac given our position as a global leader in sustainability.”
“Westpac’s anchor tenancy in this important development also demonstrates our commitment and confidence in the future of Sydney as a financial centre,” Mrs Kelly said.
In New South Wales, Westpac Group employs over 19,000 people and has over 470 branches. In the greater Sydney area, Westpac also maintains centres in Kogorah, Concord, Epping and Parramatta.
Westpac was founded in New South Wales 195 years ago in 1817 and was the first bank established in Australia.

Rumour has it the Australian Stock Exchange, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Google are all in contention for space in C3.

Quote:
"There will be three towers upon completion with KPMG being the anchor for tower 2 and negotiations are underway for the third.
Speculation is that the ASX, PWC and internet group Google are all in contention."

, so you said in your earlier post the tower was under construction, is there a chance any Sydney residents could get a few pics of the sight?

Apologies for the slow reply.

C3 is not officially under construction at the moment, just prep work.

Here is a photo from June 27, 2012


http://static.lifeislocal.com.au/mul...ll/1970539.jpg

That is the construction site for all three commercial towers in Barangaroo South.

Here is another render of the tower by itself;



And here is a render of the three Barangaroo South commercial towers along with the other buildings (which have not yet gone in for detailed design, so they are just concept designs at this stage). The 'ghost tower' is the hotel on the pier. It is likely to be relocated back on land and slightly to the north;

$A2 billion worth of funding has been secured for the construction and delivery of C4 by 2015 and C5 by early 2016.

Here's a construction shot from June 27 2012

So C3, C4 and C5 have been branded by Lend Lease as International Towers





Check out the updated website;
http://www.internationaltowerssydney.com/default.aspx

International Tower 2 (IT2, previously known as C4) will appear above the hoarding from July 2013 and is expected to top out by March 2014. It has been largely leased by Australian banking giant Westpac.

International Tower 3 (IT3, previously known as C5) will appear above the hoarding from November 2013 and is expected to top out by November 2014. It has been largely leased by the developer, Lend Lease, as well as one of the globe's 'Big 4' auditors - KPMG.

International Tower 1 (IT1, previously known as C3 - the tallest tower at 217m) is expected to have leasing deals finalised in the next 12 months. Another of the 'Big 4' auditors - PricewaterhouseCoopers - is thought to be close to signing whilst Google has also shown interest.

Basement works are underway at the moment for the construction of the shared carpark beneath the three towers.


And here is an advertisement that featured in the Sydney Morning Herald last week
