New proposal for George Street in Sydney. A residential tower with around 200 residential apartments above a podium with space for a flagship retail store.

Fife Capital's $90 million York&George mixed use tower in Sydney CBD gets green light
By Nicola Trotman
Friday, 18 October 2013

The $90 million mixed use commercial, retail and residential project York&George has been granted development approval for its 39-storey building.

Situated behind the Apple Store on George Street, the 1,785-square-metre site will feature a six level podium and 32 levels of apartments.

The podium will include 7,000 square metres of flagship retail and commercial space.

Developed by Fife Capital, York&George is a blend between York Street’s heritage persona and George Street’s contemporary urban setting.

With designs by John Wardle Architects, the development will boast a distinct weave through successive floors shifting in and our slightly and a seven-metre architectural feature will be the crown on top.

“The Sydney CBD is undergoing an exciting evolution with the introduction of more high-rise residential apartments,” says Fife Capital chief investment officer Alan Fife.

“This style of living – close to work, great restaurants, a huge selection of convenience through to high-end shopping, and easy transport links – is growing in appeal.

“Developing with the City of Sydney is a complex process. Fife recognises this and is about to bring to market a DA-approved project, which gives buyers distinctly more certainty when making their investment decisions,” says Fife.

Prices are yet to be confirmed but studio apartments range in size from 37 square metres to 43 square metres.

The residential component will be accessed via York Street, with Carlton House and Spiden House to be restored, as well as one of the city’s last remaining historic cartways.

The concierge will be in the sky lobby on level six, as will a 20-metre lap pool, sky garden, gym, yoga space and a BBQ.

One-bedroom apartments range in size from 50 square metres to 54 square metres.

Two-bedroom apartments range in size from 71 square metres to 77 square metres.

Three-bedroom apartments range in size from 110 square metres to 130 square metres.

The project will officially launch to the market on October 21.

Site prep underway

Scaffolding is going up!

And the old pop up shop is acting as something of a construction access now.
