Barangaroo apartment sales next step for Lend Lease

Read more:

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.

I'd be happy to see them built just the way they are in that render... they complement the hotel perferctly
it's good to see a lot of people already have nicknames for smith & gill's design. table knives, samurai swords, aeroplane wings etc. Our landmarks have always had nicknames. toaster, coat hanger... looks like destiny eh :lol:
I think the cove needs to go. The podium wouldn't get enough space to fit in a casino if it stays? Just something like a pool like they illustrated in the renders along with a public square would be nice. Give people more space to admire the hotel :lol: We already have a northern cove anyways
Worst of angle I reckon. Fat at the bottom, thin at the top a bit like an overweight lady and looks out of place with the commercial towers and surroundings. Looks better from just about every other angle. Hope they'll work on this in further designs.
While it's great to see the market doing so well, it just shows the extent of how undersupplied it has become simply because we haven't been building anywhere near enough for over a decade, as well as all the opportunities we're missing out on. First it was the towers in chatswood, all selling out within the weekend of being released, then bondi junction in 5 hours and now this - it's getting all too usual. Remember building more apartments isn't just about putting more supply on the market (which we obviously need much more of), it's also giving us the revenue to improve transport, roads, healthcare etc. It's now more than ever that our councils and governemnt need to just tell those NIMBYs to shut up once and for all and start building the way we should have more than a decade ago.
Yes!! How are people supposed to fit inside when the whole thing can even fit into my computer screen!? It's gotta be at least, at least, 3 times the size!

Oh and looks like we're getting something on a pier after all, good work nimbys so much for all the hard campaigning :lol:

What I thought a few months ago was that it looks a little transparent like Shanghai tower. Gonna look incredible :)
looks like that pavilion has walkable roof! reminds me a little of the cultural centre from the original proposal where crown is now?
Greenland - "time for a new tower!"

Looks like Lend Lease wants top $$$ for this :lol:
Well I like it the way it is now actually. The taller tower's so much taller than the Kent st towers it'll make the whole cluster look a bit jagged going from short to tall to short to tall again. Better to have it step up more naturally leading to the pinnacle that is Crown.
The resi towers approved?! I thought they have not even been submitted yet! :D
These towers are going to look AMAZING on approaches from the West (Anzac Bridge and the North (Harbour Bridge.)
Add LL's Circular Quay tower and Wanda's apartments to the northern approach and you'll have tall buildings on both sides of the Harbour bridge - like sentinels guarding an entrance, if you picture it. Should make an amazing drive - in 6 years' time?
Which means construction will begin? I haven't been following but I thought they haven't started marketing yet.
