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.

the lowrise units along waterfront infront of the 3 office towers will be next to be submitted DAs.
soon after,the revised masterplan for resi towers and hotel .!
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..
also R1 and R7 are gonski..

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.

At least with the park we get some talls down the southern end and it was intended to be that way.

I hope they can begin the low rise unit complexes as the office towers rise.
also R1 and R7 are gonski..
R1 and R7 are at the southern boundary of barangaroo south.
R7 is 20 levels high.
Do u know what is to replace them if anything.
It would be a loss of a lot of apartments.

R8 and 9 will be the next to be lodged.
yep thats the lowrise infront of office towers
Re upwards' question post 26:
R7 & R1; will anything replace them or will the sites become pocket parks or something?
I'm interested in this also!

I'd be surprised for R1 to go - it is located in a prime waterfront location and completes the wall of low rise residential apartments along the promenade.

I'd be less surprised to see R7 go. It will be overshadowed by C5 for a fair part of the day.

Pure speculation here, but perhaps the cultural centre will be relocated from the waterfront square to R7 and be a bit more substantial in size?

Methinks R8 and R9 could be lodged by year's end for planning approval.

yes your right. cultural centre will prob go where R7 was to be.;)
Really? Not a very big site. I was hoping for something a little more prepossessing and outstanding.
remember the original curved structure planned infront of c3. that was small. this site is alot bigger

CU square could now be where r1 andr7 were to be
AND R1! That's more like it.
Back there it just said R7 and I was about to have a whinge about it not fronting to the water as well as being too small for anything significant, but the combined site is much better, tho' it does cross a street so it'll be elevated over it? (Boy! what a hodgepodge of a sentence!)
I've had a hardcopy of the plan and have been trying to figure out what could be done there, but with the 2 sites greater possibilities open up.

Cul did say 'CU Square.' This could mean the public square will be west of what was once Globe Street (not sure if that name still applies) on the site of R1, and the cultural building where R7 is.

R1 is quoted in this report as being ~820 sq m.

In this report, R7 is quoted as being ~1,140 sq m.

https://majorprojects.affinitylive....9f7c/Preliminary Environmental Assessment.pdf

Unless more space is provided for a cultural building, it will still be a token gesture. A five floor building at 1,140 sq m per floor (total = 5,700 sq m) is still less than half the size of the Museum of Contemporary Art at Circular Quay.

I noticed in Cul's first post that there is a substantial amount of vacant space to the south of R7. It could easily double the amount of space much so that a building with a floor plate of ~2,500 sq m per floor could be created. And, ~2,500 sq m x 5 floors = 12,500 sq m. Much more substantial.

I think he means the CU, including the building, are to be on the combined R1-R7 site, not separated.
I assume the street will be subsumed into the site or go under the site.
New website has been launched ahead of the release of the residential component at Barangaroo


Luxury Waterfront Apartments and Penthouses

Situated on Sydney's spectacular harbour front, Barangaroo South is destined to become Sydney’s premier residential community, being directly connected to a globally-admired waterfront business and leisure precinct.

With a mix of stylish high and medium rise apartments, Barangaroo South offers an impressive range of options from one, two and three bedroom apartments to prestigious sky homes enjoying stunning Sydney Harbour, Harbour Bridge and Opera House views.

The premium residences have all been designed to take advantage of harbour views and will include sustainable elements that provide a superior indoor environment.

Approximately 800 apartments will be delivered in stages, creating a vibrant community of around 1,200 people.

For more information on Barangaroo South , visit the Barangaroo South website.

Register now for Stage 1 coming in 2013!

Note - there's a small artist's impression of the waterfront promenade at Barangaroo South at the bottom of the website. It appears to be north of both C5 (gold tower) and C4 (silver tower)...possibly in line with C3 (bronze tower). Notice the lack of a pier and hotel, for those that are holding onto that aspect of the original plan

Thanks sky.
The new master plan for hotel and residential should be lodged soon, so we will find out how R4 and R5 will be changed.

And Cul has also said that R1 and R7 may not be built.
And the DA for the waterfront residentials will be lodged next.
Apparently the DA for the lowrise residential apartments along the waterfront promenade has been lodged. Architects FJMT and PTW. Render at link below. Keep an eye on DoP website for documents
they look good
