“...Reservoir provides a public realm connected to the heritage atrium while the tower was intended as a beautifully articulated and confident expression of parts, a contribution to the city skyline…”
Lippmann Partnership was commissioned by Brookfield-Multiplex to prepare a Development Application for a commercial tower on the corner of Pitt and Bathurst Street Sydney adjoining the 1939 Heritage Water Board Building. The site is located close to Town Hall station and public transport within the mid-town retail precinct and has excellent high level views north-east to the Harbour and Botanical Gardens and north-west to Darling Harbour. The concept reinforces the street edge via a glazed louvred screen and creates a publicly accessible open space 7 levels high which redefines the entry to the tower and forms an activated outdoor space with integrated environmental control. The 50,000 sq. metre commercial tower is a side core configuration with the office footprint to the north taking advantage of distant views, and landscaped break-out spaces at the mid and roof level. The proposed tower has integrated ESD components including a 6 star AGBR rating consisting of a gas fired co-generation plant and blackwater treatment plant which further credentials this tower in the market place.
