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 hate those low rise Banga units, why do they bother wasting space on them? Add more towers all the way to the new headland..
A good reason for this is to keep the skyline behind Circular Quay, which ensures from many vantage points in Sydney that the Bridge and Opera House are given plenty of room in the skyline to stand out proud.
Fantastic. If the hotel is to this same high architectural standard, Barangaroo will be a new landmark.
From Lend Lease:

Approximately 100,000sqm of mixed high-rise and low-rise residential arranged over eight buildings providing between 775 and 800 apartments
I think Lend Lease would go with a step up to Crown, as the Casino will help to make Barangaroo prestigious, which one imagines would help in selling office space. What's good for Barangaroo as a whole is good for Lend Lease.
Look above you at the renders posted by upwards. Most likely the bars and restaurants will be along the harbour in this building, continuing the success of Kings Street Wharf to the south.
What are you talking about? There's 3 residential towers as part of the plan.
The extensive office component is required by the economy to keep Sydney as a competitive financial city.
Again, this project is an example of well thought out urban planning.
Regrettable. In this city coves seem to attract more people than squares. Note Darling Harbour. People want to chill out next to the harbour.
The step down to Darling Harbour can remain in future
Why is the step down desirable? Surely taller structures near Darling Harbour will make for a grander and more exciting scenery. It is better for the city to make a strong statement than to cower away from the harbour.
Excellent. This latest design does a good job of integrating the casino with the office towers, they are a blend of the style of both buildings.
I like it. It'll add some variety to our concrete jungle.

love it. really like how the blocks are set out and towers
note-new park where the 3 resi towers are.
What is this mixed used development going to be for?

You know what Sydney could really use is a new Lyrical Theatre for musical and opera productions. A second Opera House! The first one has some issues related to the Opera Hall though the Concert Hall is fantastic. Another thing we could use is a new Art Gallery...
It seems a waste to be using this area on a low rise Macquarie Park style development. Opportunities for major cultural institutions are rare.
Yeah not going to happen, you forget how restrictive City of Sydney is. They have a lot more to do with what buildings we are getting than the developers do.
Barangaroo is a state managed project, and is an oasis free of City of Sydney.
Comment yes, why Parramatta Council or City of Melbourne could comment on the project too if they want. But it's not in City of Sydney's jurisdiction.

Everyone's looking towards the Opera House and Bridge in Circular Quay and The Rocks anyway. The casino is surely big enough to impress everyone in Barangaroo.
Remember of these proposals, only 115 Bathurst Street and AMP Centre Revamp are under City of Sydney's jurisdiction. Floor space ratios and a lack of 235m zoned sites remain a major issue nothing has changed.
It seems like you are reviving arguments from the 1950s. Sydney already has a great skyline and is a major financial centre, none of this would have been possible without our tall buildings. Sydney is a skyscraper city. You can either embrace and extend the cities attributes or run away from them back to mediocrity.

just_me_again I really don't understand your attitude. You seem to have a very anti-individualist mindset. Perhaps tall buildings offend you, perhaps you think no single structure or project should be exceptional and attention grabbing. Tall poppies?
Renzo Piano will now have a major presence on both the Eastern and Western side of the city. He will be the most visible architect in our skyline since Harry Seidler.

Hope they don't look anything like The Shard. Bloody awful , especially its glass

Don't worry I'm sure Renzo Piano won't want to copy a Richard Rogers concept.
^^ Yes I was just thinking isn't it awesome to live in a city where you can say something like. 'Don't worry I'm sure Renzo Piano won't want to copy a Richard Rogers concept.'
Best architecture in Australia was foreign...
Which is just how we like it, 'World city' means citizen of the world.
