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.

yeah same old nannies posting boring posts.
lets post postive guys like hyperkube. ffs
lol - FO!
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.
i dont live in a bubble just sick of negative posts.
the cloud curved bldg is excellent. yes the lowrise behind it are same as or nothing spectacualr, but i can live with it. there only 7 floors high. not like 70floors high.
you wonder why they visit the forum in first place.
after 10 years its a draaaaag:nuts:

Hahah that's pretty low, we don't harp on about overtly positive sentiments expressed by some posters. Its true I am more glass half empty than half full but i will give credit where credit is due. Unfortunately we hardly see any attempts in this country that aim to extend the status quo.

Many of us have travelled extensively and have an intimate knowledge of Sydney's competition and our comparative lack of ambition and vision. There seems to be an mentality here that accepts average and in some cases attempts to pass it off as excellence.

Cul, you should be applauding any critical outlook as without it there will be no eventual improvement, challenging the ideas of what we have and comparing it to best practice overseas should be the minimum benchmark we set ourselves. A parocial view and measuring stick is no longer sufficient. I don't want average or normal for my city, I want the world's best. Why should we settle?

But Avatar these are the low rise residential buildings that front the waterfront. Not every building has to be as iconic or architecturally orgasmic as the Opera House, and if they did pretty much no one would be able to afford to buy (or fund) them.

Yes, we have issues with ambition and vision but I dont think this is required for every single new building.

Looks like another Toaster in the making, albeit one with exciting 90s facade materials.
I wasn't refering to this building as such, while i don't love it, I was talking on general terms for the city. I do think design excellence should be higher for CBD waterfront locations however.

I guess I am less than happy the entire barangaroo development is not one masterplanned megastructure. I don't like this piecemeal approach.

I have just been for a walk by Barangaroo South, things are going ahead full blast. Very big machines making very deep holes.

As someone said in another thread, it looks strange and incomplete without any signature hotel!

We probably wont get any more news on the high rise residentials until the plans for the hotel are announced.
Could be quite different to original proposals.
Strong interest in Sydney’s Barangaroo apartments, say developers

Lend Lease could have over 10,000 enquiries for its Barangaroo apartments in Sydney by the time the first 159 units go up for sale later this year.

Bodes well for the residential towers to come online after R8 and R9!
yeah always knew this precinct will become THE place to work and live
i too reckon the first of the towers will soon be lodged. but have to workout where packers towers going first

Strong off-the-plan interest for Lend Lease's Barangaroo residential hub

By Nicola Trotman
Wednesday, 10 April 2013

The first two apartment buildings of the Barangaroo development on Sydney’s CBD waterfront have attracted strong preliminary registration interest since the planning applications were submitted in November last year by Lend Lease.

By the time the apartments go on sale later this year, Lend Lease have estimated a 10,000 plus enquiry pool.

Lend Lease has appointed CBRE as the lead selling agent for the residential community which is dubbed the most significant Sydney CBD waterfront residential offerings since the release of apartments at Circular Quay and Woolloomooloo in the 1990s.

"The level of enquiry is above anything we have seen in the last 20 years for new apartments on the harbour from East Circular Quay to Walsh Bay," CBRE’s chairman of residential projects Justin Brown told The Financial Review.

Property Observer first reported on the two apartment buildings in November.

The two apartment buildings will range in height from seven to 11 storeys and comprise of 159 apartments of one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.


The 47 one-bedroom apartments will range from about $1 million and the 100 two-bedroom units will be priced from $2 million.

Also on offer will be 11 dual-level luxury loft apartments and one double floor penthouse.

The apartments are the work of Richard Francis-Jones of FJMT and Andrew Andersons of PTW.

PTW & Andersons

The 10-storey building designed by Francis-Jones includes a striking cloud-shaped design for the apartments and balconies at the north of the 82-apartment building overlooking the new public square and harbour cove.

The 77-apartment, eight-storey building designed by Andrew Andersons includes substantial rooftop gardens and green plantings.

Brown says the Baranagaroo develop is Sydney’s last significant CBD waterfront residential offering.

“These contemporary-designed apartments offer the quintessential Sydney Harbour living experience,” says Wilson.

The apartments are scheduled for release later this year and have an expected completion date of mid-2015.

How many new apartments will be built in Barangaroo?
From Lend Lease:

Approximately 100,000sqm of mixed high-rise and low-rise residential arranged over eight buildings providing between 775 and 800 apartments
Cheers mate. I'm going to move to Sydney CBD because I love the idea of high density living... Barangaroo might just be an option!

Looking at this picture, I'm interested to see if Lend Lease decides to use the residential towers to 'step up' in height to Crown or if they decide to let the height from ITS1 (C3) drop to Crown?

What do you guys think?
I think Lend Lease would go with a step up to Crown, as the Casino will help to make Barangaroo prestigious, which one imagines would help in selling office space. What's good for Barangaroo as a whole is good for Lend Lease.
