The second render makes it look like the IAG/NRMA building on George Street. I prefer the colours of the first one.

from the multiplex site



funny they've got it under "current projects" and "mixed use", alongside their other known project for Mac Bank at King Street Wharf. perhaps something IS happening behind the scenes... maybe?

It is great news. A bit of a downgrade in the minds of comm bank i would think tho. They would be hesitant not to be located in the finiancial district with all the other banks. But i'm sure a quick glance at one of the world's largest banks across the rd would be reassuring and vindicate moving to 'midtown'.

one word- tennants. It needs 65000sqm of space filled. com bank were thinking of going into it but now there going to Homebush.
Sydney is picking up with its office vacancy so 2007 and on is looking promising. it has everyhting. great design, great location, great views.
this tower will eventually get going, its just when?

Why is it so hard to influence companies to move their HQ to Sydney these days! Back in the old days (well prior 2000) I remember they were fighting over 2sqm of Sydney. To get your foot in Sydney was enough! Maybe Im wrong, but I remember it was all about Sydney, what happened? How did we get here? It feels like for the passed few years we are regressing. I blame it on decentralisation... its ALWAYS a bad thing for a city and its economy. There are too many mini cities in Sydney- Parra, St leonards, Nth Ryde, Chatswood, Blacktown, Liverpool, Nth Sydney... Not good. Other Aus. cities are taking over too... Companies should head back, more money should be spent in to trying to maintain Sydney as one of the financial capitals.

not saying that ceventralisation is bad as we have some awesome skylines (not to mention facilities/shops) at Chatti, North Syd and Parra, however i do hold to same fear as you.

People need to say "I wan't my office THERE" whilst pointing to some new 300m scraper :P

It's a question of access - Public Transport for the employees.

There's been a trend to develop where the population is, and so more localised mini-CBD's are rising.
