The operator of The Star Casino (Echo Entertainment) was never formally interested in this site.

Crown approached Echo Entertainment to see if they were interested in a 'joint venture' at this site, however Echo Entertainment refused. Crown then lodged its own proposal, which forced Echo Entertainment to propose expansion of The Star to defend its turf. The NSW Government stated only one proposal would proceed, and they found the Crown proposal to be in the best interests of the city and the state.

Why is this building still classed as Proposed - has it not been Approved?

Crown has only received approval for a second casino license in NSW, not the building itself. The concept plan is still being finalised by the Barangaroo Delivery Authority, Lend Lease and Crown, so the building is yet to receive planning approval.

If approved at 270m, yes it will be Sydney's tallest building.

New video showing the modified concept plan for Barangaroo South by Lend Lease



The modified concept plan is expected to go on public exhibition imminently, allowing Crown to finally lodge its own plans.

There is speculation that the two-storey penthouse on levels 63 and 64 could sell for as much as $A100 million ($US76 million). Sydney's most expensive property sale was Altona in exclusive Point Piper for $A54 million ($US41.2 million) in 2013.

The advent of the $100 million apartment? Packer's hotel revealed
March 14, 2015 - 12:43AM
Leesha McKenny
Urban Affairs Reporter

A penthouse from James Packer's new Barangaroo hotel-casino complex would be a contender for the first in Australia to break nine figures. Photo: AFP
Almost half the floors in James Packer's $2 billion Barangaroo hotel-casino complex have been earmarked for apartments, including a two-storey penthouse that could approach the $100 million-mark.

Crown has proposed that 30 of the development's 69 floors be reserved for units, according to documents lodged with the Department of Planning and Environment.

Some of the building's best views would be taken in by these 66 private residences, including a two-level penthouse located just below hotel's premium villas and five sub-penthouses that take out an entire floor each.

Justin Brown, the chairman of CB Richard Ellis' residential real estate division, said in a global market where penthouses were selling overseas for more than $100 million, "it will not be long" before one is offered in Sydney.

A Barangaroo penthouse from Mr Packer's development would be a contender to approach a nine figure pricetag, Mr Brown said.

"It will compete against Lend Lease's Barangaroo and 1 Alfred Street," he said.

Such a result could mean Crown would come close to recouping the entire $100 million licence fee it has paid the NSW government for the right to operate a VIP-only casino in the complex with a single unit sale.

"To achieve a super prime result the offering must be unique, above 800 sq m, preferably at the top of the building, irreplaceable views, high level of privacy and security and surrounded by leading amenity," Mr Brown said.

The uppermost levels of what would be Sydney's tallest residential tower, if approved, have been proposed to serve as suites for the hotel's most sought-after guests.

The top three floors have been earmarked for a single "Sky Villa", followed by a whole-floor "Super Villa" – the luxury accommodation expected to host the international high rollers Crown hopes to attract to its VIP-only casino.

"The highest level villas are reserved for our highest level VIP guests," a Crown spokesman said.

In addition to 323 hotel rooms, the documents show that a five further levels of 25 hotel villas have been proposed for the floors immediately above the development's "Sky Gaming".

Spanning levels 25 and 26, these private gaming rooms are situated more than halfway down the building, while other gaming facilities are located level one and two in the building's podium, alongside restaurants.

Mr Packer's planning application, lodged this month, had been delayed by a legal dispute between Lend Lease and the Barangaroo Delivery Authority about how much the developer should pay for key parts of the site.

Lend Lease confirmed the parties were moving towards a settlement last week when it submitted the long-awaited revised concept plan for Barangaroo South, which is yet to go on public exhibition.

Known as "modification 8", this is required to incorporate Crown's development and amend an earlier approval that locates a hotel on a pier jutting into the harbour.

The planning documents show that the Crown proposal, at 77,500 sq m, would be significantly larger than the 33,000 sq m hotel over the water, which did not include apartments or a restricted gaming facility.

Lend Lease last week also announced acclaimed Italian architect Renzo Piano had been selected to design three high-rise apartments buildings also proposed for Barangaroo South. They are expected to contain about 750 units between them.

The Sydney Morning Herald (13/5/2015): The Sydney Observatory has lodged a submission against the Crown Resort through the Museum of Applied Arts & Sciences. It's argument is that it will impact on the activities associated with the observatory.
