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 am very impressed with those unit towers and was expecting alot less especially R8. Those apartments towards the northern end will surely rival the units in other prominent harbourside addresses.
Overview up on the Barangaroo South website. Lend Lease envisages 20 F&B tenancies for R8 and R9 including a 'signature restaurant' at the base of FJMT's 'Cloud.' Fantastic location


Completing Sydney’s prestigious northern CBD Quay Precinct, Barangaroo South’s apartment buildings are the city’s last significant residential waterfront opportunity, Lend Lease’s Managing Director for Barangaroo South Andrew Wilson said today.

Mr Wilson’s comment follows Lend Lease’s lodging of planning applications for the first two Barangaroo South residential buildings with the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure.

These buildings, comprising 159 apartments all with extensive Sydney Harbour views, were designed by leading Australian architects Richard Francis-Jones of fjmt and Andrew Andersons of PTW, and represent the first release of Barangaroo South apartments to the market.

"The contemporary boutique design apartments offer the quintessential Sydney experience," Mr Wilson said. "They are stylish, exclusive and take advantage of their spectacular location on the Harbour and respond to their CBD waterfront environment. Importantly, there are limited opportunities to purchase apartments of this superior quality in a new development on the Harbour edge."

The northern building designed by Mr Francis-Jones includes a striking cloud-shaped design for the apartments and balconies at the north of the building overlooking the new public square and harbour cove.

The southern building designed by Mr Andersons includes substantial rooftop gardens and green plantings.

"Both buildings draw inspiration from the wharves which originally jutted out into East Darling Harbour and Walsh Bay," Mr Wilson said. "This is the next generation Sydney waterside experience. The buildings also convey the vibrancy of Barangaroo South – an active, exciting environment.

"The Quay Precinct, which wraps around the Harbour foreshore from East Circular Quay to King Street Wharf, will include not only Barangaroo South’s apartments but also its new dining and leisure experiences, transport connections, commercial buildings and extensive public spaces.

"The high profile nature of Barangaroo has led to heightened awareness of this development and we are already receiving sales enquiries about these apartments."

The two buildings vary in height from seven to 11 storeys and contain a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments, all with uninterrupted Harbour views. The buildings include six dual-level luxury loft apartments and one double floor penthouse. There will only be a maximum of three apartments per floor for each lift core.

To capitalise on the unique waterfront position, the buildings' ground levels will provide for up to 20 food and beverage tenancies of various scales, including casual cafes and a standout signature restaurant at the northern end facing the cove. The food and beverage "hot spot" at Barangaroo South is destined to become a highlight on Sydney's dining landscape and a new home to some of the most exciting local and global chefs.

In addition to creating high quality urban living spaces, sustainability has been a key factor of the design of these two buildings, Mr Wilson said.

Each building is targeting a 5 Green Star residential rating and incorporates a range of sustainability measures including reduced embodied carbon in the building materials used and extensive bi-fold screen systems for shading. Amongst the other benefits for the occupants is the availability of cross ventilation.

The apartments will be completed in mid-2015.

The planning application documents for the waterfront apartments are on public exhibition from 21 November 2012 until 21 December 2012 and are available to view at the Department of Planning’s Information Centre, 23-33 Bridge Street, Sydney and online at

Following planning approval, the apartments are expected to debut on the Sydney property market during the second half of 2013. To register interest, please visit

SMH has picked up on R8 and R9, dubbed it 'The Cloud' and our (potential) answer to the Gherkin and the Shard in a poorly written article, which has been followed by a typically majority-NIMBY response in the comments section (too much for the rich, more park, whinge whinge)

The Gherkin, the Shard ... the Cloud?

London has its 'Gherkin' and 'Shard', and Martin Place has its 'Money Box'.

And Barangaroo may soon have its own piece of architectural inspiration, taken straight from the clouds.

(It's) reminiscent of the free-forms of clouds and waves that complement our sandstone harbour headlands.

The Barangaroo Delivery Authority has lodged plans for Barangaroo Central, which went on public exhibition today. The designs included a tree-lined waterfront promenade, which features a 30-metre timber boardwalk.

Also released today were plans for the first two residential apartments at Barangaroo South, comprising 159 apartments with harbour views.

The apartments range from seven to 11 storeys and include six dual-level luxury loft apartments and a double floor penthouse.

Both buildings were inspired by the wharves which originally protruded into East Darling Harbour and Walsh Bay.

The northern building features a cloud-shaped design and balconies overlooking a new public square and harbour cove.

The architect, Richard Francis-Jones, of fjmt, said the building was inspired by Sydney Harbour. The “expressive, organic” form of the northern apartments was "reminiscent of the free-forms of clouds and waves that complement our sandstone harbour headlands", he said.

The southern building, designed by Andrew Andersons of PTW, includes rooftop gardens and green plantings

At ground level, up to 20 restaurants, cafes and bars will be established, including a ‘‘standout signature restaurant’’ at the northern end.

The chairman of off-the-plan marketers CBRE, Justin Brown, said a one-bedroom apartment could fetch $1 million, while a three-bedroom apartment could sell for around $3.5 million. The penthouse suite could sell for up to $10 million, he suggested.

Landscape architect Peter Walker designed the promenade, which would run through Barangaroo Central, eventually linking the Headland Park to the north with the commercial and residential precinct in the south. It is expected to be completed in 2015.

Chief executive of the authority, John Tabart, said the walkway would form part of an "active and connected public waterfront".

A long-term master plan for Barangaroo Central is being drawn up, and the precinct would be "a cultural and civic focal point for Sydney", he added.

The proposed promenade would provide public access to the harbour's edge for pedestrians and cyclists, and would accommodate deep-water berthing and special-event infrastructure.

In the northern cove, a pontoon would allow drop-off access for small boats.

The authority has also proposed a lawn area with space for temporary pavilions, public art and event staging areas. It is also seeking approval for a small number of major events such as concerts, festivals and outdoor theatre.

Lend Lease proposes to complete the apartments at Barangaroo South by mid-2015.

Each building is seeking a 5-Green Star residential rating through sustainability measures such as reduced embodied carbon in building materials and bi-fold screen systems for shading.

The apartment and promenade proposals are on public exhibition until December 21.

love the look of the building... Sydney, might not be heading up but definitely moving more and more in the right direction in terms of pushing for well designed buildings..
I'll continue the chorus of support
Fantastic. If the hotel is to this same high architectural standard, Barangaroo will be a new landmark.

Sadly NIMBY's will still say "no".

The designs are really doing a good job at proving critics wrong.
Looking brilliant! Really impressed with what's been proposed.

^any questions about the hotel should be asked in the hotel thread
6 stars means= you get 6 pretty good actors or singers and you hire out a room for the night and party hard. then the next day you give it a 6star rating.!
Will those apartments be through apartments like at the toaster? The buildings look narrow enough that it will be the case.
Yes. The layouts show that just about all apartments have the living areas and balcony on the west harbor side. And the bedrooms are on the east
side of the building.
So they have light coming in from east and west.
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.

agree on the more basic parts of the design, but Im getting excited about this part.. dont think we have anything like this in residential in sydney..

yeah same old nannies posting boring posts.
lets post postive guys like hyperkube. ffs
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.
