Barangaroo apartment sales next step for Lend Lease

LEND Lease is looking to start sales of the residential tower at Sydney's $6 billion Barangaroo South project within the next two years, after securing funding for the project.

Aside from the three office towers, casino and hotel, about 775 to 800 apartments are planned for the site. The apartments could have an asking price of $1 million-plus.

After lengthy talks, the group said that New South Wales government superannuants in First State Super and the Telstra Super fund would be direct financiers of the $2 billion Barangaroo South project.

The two funds are included in the syndicate with the Lend Lease-managed Australian Prime Property Fund Commercial that will take a combined $500 million stake in the construction of the development.

Advertisement The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board will invest $1 billion and Lend Lease will make up the remaining $500 million, funded by internal cash flow, not by shareholders.

Westpac, KPMG and Lend Lease are the confirmed anchor tenants for the first two office towers, at an average rental of $1000 a square metre, with about 20 per cent of the rent as incentives. It is speculated that accounting firm PwC could take out the anchor space for the 3rd tower.

So is the whole residential component being launched at the same time? I was under the impression that the apartments in front of international towers would be the first to be launched and constructed.

I look forward to seeing detailed renders for the residential towers. Those in the north in particular are well placed to break up the sheer bulk and size of C3

That they do. Note the stepped roof at the top of R4 (more renders at the LAVA link indicate R5 had a similar form).

Nevertheless, do not stress! The renders posted by CULWULLA are only concept designs and are not detailed renders. They are only Stage 1 Approved and have to go in for Stage 2 Approval in the years to come. And if the towers are not completed until the end of the decade (as the timeline upwards mentioned suggests), we could see some quality designs featuring vertical gardens, riding off the success of One Central Park.

They continue to evolve into nice designs. You could build them as they are but I'd be happy to take refinements to the designs.

Refinements are a must. In their current concept design, the towers are a mere shadow of the LAVA designs.

Depending on the height of the hotel, there could also be small impacts on the location and height of R4 and R5.

Here is the prelim site plan and we can see where the residential towers will go approx and the low rise residentials also.

R4 AND R5 are north of southern cove and R3 is on the southern side.
R7 which is the 20 level tower is at the southern end of the site.

You would think R3 would be completed before R4 and R5

The Lend Lease hotel may go the west of R4



Cul has posted the east elevation of the towers. Here is the north elevation..

Yep anyone with $1 million+ to spare should go for it!

I've got a friend that has shown some interest in the residential component of Barangaroo, could be on quite a few people's interest list!

This shows how the residential towers will break up the bulk of C3.

In regards to the southern cove, does anyone else feel like it is a pointless initiative now? It seems the canal has been scratched and providing the hotel ends up next to R4, the southern cove will be in shade for most of the day. Same goes for the waterfront square. This begs the question - is it worth keeping the southern cove?

It would look so nice and dense if that resi tower is moved toward the International towers (the other side of the canal)! Would look amazing if looking at the development from the north.

Also, that LAVA design is beautiful!
