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.

Wow much shorter than I thought it would look its as if its always been there. They really needed 100m more on the buildings and the area is in desperate need of one spire to balance it out it looks very flat no shapes...
It's my understanding they will go to a design comp, can somebody confirm this?
Both taller than quoted to the top of arch feature?
the tallest looks 235m and middle tower about 200m.
Exactly what i thought comparing them to Crown.
When is work due to commence on the small residential's on the water in front of ITs?
One looks like i could be almost 250 based on proportions, which means Crown would have to be 265 at least! Hope those are indicative of the heights!
tip- design comp happening soon for tall resis ;)
Any idea who is taking part in it?
It does seem quite strange that it's so short and lost, could understand it being that height if it was in front of the taller ones towards the harbour, but it just seems completely lost.
But in terms of working population City of Sydney is much bigger. According to the COS website more people work in the City of Sydney than live in the Copenhagen Municipality, which as Cariad pointed out is over 3 times larger.
The da for the towers are lodging very soon. Within weeks
Will that mean renders too? Or will that be once da is approved?

I REALLY dig them, hope they stay pretty much the same, maybe just refined a little more. That skinny and high is how all the resi's going up around the CBD should be. Class

I must interject into your worldly conversations on this forum and say to those people that are just being negative about Melbourne that you are plainly wrong...what do you mean about no street activation or bed design...of course there was some issues with it and with blank walls which are going to be conjoined with other buildings eventually but in general Melbourne is pushing forward in design and amenities standards and street activation is still excellent throughout most of the city...have you walked around Southbank and Docklands and through city laneways and other streets you would have noticed many excellent and brave new buildings...and with the new planning minister this will get even better in regards to street activation and size of the apartments...when you get a building boom as such you can always expect some less then mediocre development but overall it is of high standard and inventive...what is the point of this comparison when I could pick bad and good in both cities if I wanted to...Barangaroo is an excellent development by the way and it is only confined to a small area so do not compare it with wider Melbourne development...
I don't agree with you regarding the street activation. Too many of these new buildings have nothing more than an above ground carpark in their podiums. I feel the council needs to be stricter with them and make sure they are actually adding something like cafes, bars, shops and services. That's not to say Melbourne doesn't have great activity at street level, but you should be improving it instead of resting on your laurels. SSC atm won't let anything through which doesn't improve the street activity for the general public, that also means no above ground car parks, which I realise in Melbourne is much more costly and time consuming. But if these developers are making millions and selling out apartments before construction starts, I'm sure they can put car parks below ground.
Looks better with the breaks in the facade.

Can't wait to see what it looks like once people have moved in and change it up.

Yeah sorry that's what I mean, people moving them when they move in.
