Lend Lease and Related Companies should have a "race" between Barangaroo Tower 2 and Hudson Yards South Tower now that the core of HY ST is rising :-)

that's what the developers did with the Petronas Twin Towers (Malaysia).
in order to ensure that construction dateline is met, they appointed two different contractors, and 'race' to complete the towers.

potential risk is that one or the other does not follow the blueprint and everything screws up!

CULWULLA has produced a 3D diagram of Barangaroo showing all the towers envelopes and current construction.

250m is a good height for the edge of CBD against watersedge.

From Ozscrapers forum. Two new Residential towers are shown 2nd (225m) and 3rd (190m) from left. There is a 3rd hidden behind them standing at 96m. 6 star resort is the first tower and the 3 identical towers are all commercial, currently under construction as seen in the photos above.

A refined render.



Remember that there has been no formal development application lodged yet.

Apologies for the glare.

The concept plan for Barangaroo Central was released recently.

Beep1Beep2 produced a good summary of what is proposed.

Quote:

Master Plan Overview

Key aspects of the new Central Barangaroo master plan include:
• The “Sydney Steps” creating a new city gateway to Barangaroo and the waterfront
• A continuous 30m wide public foreshore walk
• New civic plaza and parks on the waterfront
• A network of laneways ensuring pedestrian and vehicular accessibility
• Preservation of a site for a future cultural venue
• Preservation of views from Observatory Hill to the horizon and the harbour
• Greater diversity of active uses to create a 24/7 environment all generally within the current approved
building heights and footprints creating a more engaging, active and vibrant waterfront precinct – this can
lead to up to a total of 121,500 of gross floor area within Central Barangaroo.

Barangaroo and how it measures up against Sydney's skyline at this point in time.

And this is without the Crown Resort and apartment towers.
