This new commercial high-rise project was commissioned by Mirvac Projects after Lippmann Partnership (in consultation with Rogers, Stirk, Harbour and Partners) won a City of Sydney Design Excellence Competition. The building provides 23,000 sq metres of premium grade office space at a prime location within the Sydney CBD.
The concept achieves three main objectives
1. an extension of the existing Chifley Square ground plane as a dynamic public open space
2. provision of a series of office “village” environments where varying floor plates and 3 storey voids, offer unique workspaces and flexibility within a commercial tower; and
3. targeting 5-Star NABERS Energy and 6-Star Green Star ratings and co-generation plant resulting in a reduced carbon footprint of 70% for a typical building of this size.
Demolition of the old Goodsell building is under way and the expected completion date is 2013.
