Sydney to become home to world's tallest 'hybrid timber' tower

Info posted by @upwards with images from The Sydney Morning Herald

Development applications will be lodged in coming months, with construction due to begin next year.
A builder has not yet been appointed.
Once complete in 2025, it will accommodate up to 4000 Atlassian staff, and a YHA hostel on its lower levels.

Each of the habitats will be constructed of Glulam timber columns and beams and cross-laminated timber floor slabs.
Each habitat will have its own garden sitting.

Can you tell us more about that: an Australian Silicon Valley?!?

Ms Berejiklian said the new headquarters would help the capital rival California’s famous Silicon Valley.

“Atlassian is a great Australian success story and it’s very fitting for them to have their headquarters here in Sydney,” she said.

“Tech Central will rival Silicon Valley as the place to be. This means more jobs and opportunities for all of our citizens.”

Aptly named Tech Central, the establishment will also house a number of tech start-ups.

“Technology and innovation are key planks of the government’s strategy to attract investment and create the jobs of the future for the people of NSW,”

“We have some brilliant tech innovators and entrepreneurs in our state and Tech Central will help us retain local talent and attract some of the brightest minds in the world.

“That’s why we’re building this precinct. We want to create jobs, ideas and innovation. This will be home to thousands of workers and the best new ideas. If you want to work in tech, this is the place you will want to be,” - Scott Farquhar

Jobs Minister Stuart Ayres said the long-term goal of Tech Central was to create 25,000 innovation jobs while encouraging students to focus on STEM (science and maths) subjects.
