SYDNEY | 505 George Street | 263m | 78 fl | Pro

Sydney's 235m invisible ceiling is in the process of being smashed. First Crown, now 505 George Street.

Thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...1727496&page=6

A Planning Proposal has been lodged with the City of Sydney for a new 263m tower with scope for 64,850 sq m of development:
- 53,420 sq m residential (588 apartments)
- 10,909 sq m retail (not cinema)
- 250 sq m community
- Childcare

Note this is a Stage 1 DA, so renders are not what will be built

There is scope for a second, smaller tower to the south (~107m for a commercial building or ~150m for a residential / hotel building).

Quality tower and a nice way to finally be rid of that potato height limit!

Yes, many of us in the Sydney subforum are quite excited to contemplate what this means for the future of the city's skyline and how the city will grow in future.

If built to 263m, 505 George Street is on track to become the second tallest building in Sydney behind the proposed Crown Towers at Barangaroo (272m).

Longer term, there are whispers in the press and the Sydney subforum that even taller buildings could follow at sites such as 233 Castlereagh Street and Circular Quay.
