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.

Meh, nothing to write home about.
I agree, R9? (the terracotta coloured building) looks like it has hardly moved on from Renzo Piano's late 1990s' Macquarie Apartments.
Sorry Cul we don't all live in a rosy, parochial Australian bubble. Some of us actually want Sydney to strive for something that stands out internationally not just something that tops Australasia. I am pro-Barangaroo but am disappointed by the appeasement process of the past couple of years. As for these apartment buildings they are a decade behind the curve and that is a little disappointing.
Yes the big red too European and way too bold for little old Sydney. A city that couldn't even deal with bright yellow girders on Rodger's other tower at 8 Chifley.

^nah actually very ugly.
I would use the word distinctive. It was a rather unique design and structure unlike the rather generic but international contemporary Wilkinson Eyre replacement. I think in a few decades Sydney's Crown will look quite typical of 2010s tower design, much like Crown Melbourne is of the 1990s.
The Shard's height wasn't pushed by Renzo, it was requested by its developer during the pre-GFC London property boom. Initially Renzo had no interest in the proposal as he thought the proposed height at the location was developer centric and egotistical. But the developer eventually talked him around to the idea.
