Barangaroo apartment sales next step for Lend Lease

Read more: http://www.smh.com.au/business/bara...-lend-lease-20120709-21rnw.html#ixzz20SbziK6t

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.

Looking forward to it. Now we need the formal D/A's for the buildings.
i like the corner tower. obvioulsy devoid of balconies due to proximity to casino/retail areas.

Barangaroo waterfront apartments revealed

Apartments at Barangaroo South come with price tags starting at nearly $1 million.
Robert Harley

Lend Lease is pushing on with proposals for the first waterfront apartments on Barangaroo south but further apartment releases to the north of the inner Sydney precinct are in limbo pending approval for James Packer’s six-star hotel casino.

The developer lodged plans yesterday with the NSW government for the first 159 apartments. If all goes to plan, the first residents could move in by mid-2015.

Lend Lease managing director for Barangaroo south Andrew Wilson said the precinct’s apartments, the last significant residential waterfront opportunity in the Sydney CBD, would offer a “quintessential Sydney experience”.

The prices will also be quintessentially Sydney. At about $20,000 a square metre of floor area, the one-bedroom apartments will range from about $1 million and the two- bedroom units from $2 million.
The chairman of CBRE Residential, Justin Brown, said Barangaroo south would be the next catalyst for Sydney CBD living, and even more important than east Circular Quay in the 1990s, because of Barangaroo’s master plan, the Packer-Crown facilities and extensive parklands.

Barangaroo south will eventually have about 700 apartments but planning for those on the northern part of the site is still in flux as the Crown hotel is in that area.
This first release of apartments is unaffected by the uncertainty. They will be on the main harbour front, facing west and directly in front of the three new office towers.

Two leading architects have designed the buildings, Richard Francis-Jones of fjmt and Andrew Andersons of PTW.
Mr Francis-Jones said his building was inspired by Sydney Harbour, with an organic form “reminiscent of the free forms of clouds and waves that complement our sandstone harbour headlands.”

Mr Anderson said his design had an “informality and sustainability” with a green roof, solar collectors and dynamic facades.

The buildings will range in height from seven to 11 stories and include one double-floor penthouse and six dual-level loft apartments.
All apartments will have water views; all will be larger than normal with one bedrooms about 60 square metres and the two bedrooms about 100 sq m; they will have much higher ceilings than in east Circular Quay; and each lift will service just three apartments a floor.

Mr Wilson said sustainability would be a feature with Lend Lease aiming for a 5-star Green-Star rating helped by reduced carbon in the building materials, bifold screens for shading and cross-ventilation.

“This is the next generation Sydney waterside experience,” Mr Wilson said.

The apartments will be formally marketed in the second half of 2013 but Mr Wilson said Lend Lease was already receiving inquiries.

CBRE Residential is making strong sales at the new Pacific Bondi where prices average $26,000 a sq m and range up to more than $40,000 a sq m.

Mr Brown said Barangaroo had the potential to eclipse the success of the Pacific Bondi, with both local and international buyers.
Wow, they look much better than what I was expecting! Hope it would look exactly like the render!
RFJ is an incredible architect. the disc shaped cloud inspired corner bldg looks FAB.
Now, if I could just win Lotto...
Agreed. I love the curves, it's a sexy, contemporary residential building that responds well to its location. Would have liked to have seen this reflected more in the PTW residential buildings however at least they are all quite individualistic.

^^^thanks. ive edited in larger render

more from DA

the ground level coffee shop gona be popular



As BC said: so much better than I feared they might be. R9 by Andersons of PTW is worthy enough but R8 by FJMT is the beauty with its eye-catching tower turn which anchors the end of the block with a visual & architectural exclamation mark. Even like the brown block of FJMT's complex.

I see the covered walkway is much more modest is appearance and size.

I'm tempted to use the pattern of an email I received from An African Country which began "God has told me that you have to send me $US5000..."
Am contemplating using that technique to see if I can get a couple of mill to buy one of these apartments.

Notice photovoltaic cells on roof

I didn't realise the FJMT building was actually comprised of two parts. Love it even more now. Call me boring but I probably would have preferred to see the FJMT buildings replicated on the PTW site (not that it's a bad looking building) simply to form bookends for the commercial towers.

Overall I'm impressed with both designs (and unimpressed with how average the podium on C3 looks in comparison)
More renders - the commercial building dwarf R8,R9!






simply magic. beautiful lowrise structures.really happy the way barangar00 is advancing.
Interesting projection here; $20,000 per square metre of floor space seems rather high, even allowing for the great site and views. Good units in the northern CBD are currently around half this.

I'm guessing they'd be very noisy places to live. I hope that they, and those over the water in Pyrmont, don't put a dampner on trading hours.
I know the location is great but I certainly wouldn't spend $2m to live there. It would a noisy spot and not overly private.

If King Street Wharf is any indication, it'll be noisy after hours alright!

Starting price for a 1 bedder at $1 million is rather expensive too.
It will be noisy - i would prefer all of the balconies to be enclosed and the windows, doors double glazed...


"Based on the estimated noise levels, the internal noise goals for the residential apartments can be achieved by selecting the appropriate glazing for windows and doors.

For these building this is likely to be single laminated glazing. It is noted however that a higher specification glazing is likely to be required to address thermal performance requirements, which will also provide greater acoustic performance than that required to meet internal noise levels."
