Key points from the article:

Lend Lease plans 220m tower at the Quay
THE AUSTRALIAN FEBRUARY 05, 2015 12:00AM

[....]

The developer has proposed a 52-level office building at 33-35 Pitt Street, with the preliminary designs by Hassell’s.

The group said in its proposal it would aim to lure major financial and professional services companies to the tower, with the top 15m to include an architectural feature. Lend Lease will hold a competition for the final designs of the tower, which would have a net lettable area of about 60,000sq m.

Under the proposal, the building has a George Street address with an elevated lobby providing a link to Pitt Street. At the centre of the precinct, Lend Lease aims to build a public plaza. A public artwork in the plaza would “add *significant cultural value and *increased social engagement”, the proposal said.

The Jacksons on George hotel will be revamped with new dining and drinking options and possibly an open-roof terrace.

[....]

“Our current proposed vision includes the creation of an internationally recognised business address together with new public spaces including a new network of retail activated lane ways, a public plaza on *George Street with a new public bike hub beneath and the retention and adaptive reuse of the iconic Jacksons on George hotel.”

Here's a concept render of what the ground plane may look like (courtesy of an article in the AFR).

Note: the pale building to the left is Dalian Wanda's 1 Alfred Street (187m):

Remember this is only conceptual - all designs will be subject to a detailed design competition further down the track.

A design competition will be held with the winner announced in about 8 week's time. Check out the A-List of firms!!

Quote:
The architects were being briefed by the City of Sydney Council on Wednesday and will present in December for the design competition.

Graham Jahn, City of Sydney director of city planning, development and transport, described the project as critical for Sydney.

"Today was the first meeting day of the competition for the site where representatives flew into Sydney to be briefed by Lendlease and the City of Sydney," Mr Jahn said.

"The complexity of the project was well explained because this is one of the most sophisticated delivery of public and private outcomes that the City has ever delivered."

The laneway network is important because it joins up with Mirvac and AMP's new tower at 200 George Street at the southern end and Wanda's new hotel and apartment project at the northern end."

The teams are:
Skidmore, Owings & Merrill together with local partner Fender Katsalidis Architects,
Foster and Partners from London together with Architectus,
Kohn Pederson Fox from New York with AJC,
HOK from Chicago with PTW,
David Chipperfield Architects from Berlin who has not yet chosen a local partner,
Two Australian contenders, HASSELL and BVN.

The design competition will run for eight weeks and will present in December.

The judges include two people from Lendlease and five renowned experts from Australia.

Foster + Partners has won the design competition for Circular Quay Tower.

Quote:





19 June 2017

Foster + Partners has been appointed to design a new office tower as part of an urban precinct that is set to reinvigorate part of Sydney’s iconic Circular Quay. Located between George and Pitt streets – a stone’s throw away from the city’s famous harbour – the scheme is characterised by a network of pedestrian laneways that criss-cross the site at different levels. The laneways will be lined with shops, cafes and bars, celebrating Sydney as a unique destination.

Gerard Evenden, Head of Studio and Senior Executive Partner, Foster + Partners, who led the design team remarked: “We wanted Circular Quay Tower and its surroundings to be of its place, taking advantage of its topography and unique location near Sydney Harbour. The tower will be the centrepiece of an urban regeneration precinct that will reshape the northern end of the CBD into a vibrant community contributing to Sydney’s status as a global city.”

The tower also makes a distinctive contribution to Sydney’s skyline with its innovative façade – a series of external cross-braces derived from structural stress diagrams. The south façade is broken into three bays with the concrete cores 'book-ending' the three transparent banks of lifts that animate the façade. The entire elevation is vertically articulated to modulate its visual impact on the skyline. The expressed structure also allows flexibility in interior layouts with the core offset to one side.

“The innovative workspaces at Circular Quay Tower are flexibly designed to support new ways of working in the 21st century so that anyone from a new start-up to large companies can enjoy this fabulous urban location. We are delighted that the jury concurred with our design vision and look forward eagerly to the next stages of the project.” Evenden added.

I do like Fosters + Partners works around the world...... this one is okay looking, looks better at night in these renders...... great height for Sydney though (which is quite sad that we get excited over 260m+ ..... compared with the monsters they are building in NY or Chicago etc.)
