Developer Lend Lease has unveiled a new design for its 43-storey tower scheme in Barangaroo in Sydney, Australia.

Lend Lease reduced the mass of the first office tower in order to decrease opposition to the large project.

90m-long walls have been trimmed by 5m and the building has been "articulated" to break up its bulk from having floors of 2,500m², according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The project has been designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and will be submitted to the Department of Planning for approval.

It is the first of the three planned office towers for the city and will be located at East Darling Harbour.

The 2,500m² scheme is called C4 and is expected to feature 188 car spaces and parking for 708 bicycles.

The sustainable building will use 75% less energy than other buildings and employ other water efficient measures, according to Sydney Morning Herald.
