The architectural firm Fitzpatrick and Partners has won the design competition for a major development project at 33 Bligh Street, Sydney.

The project consists of a tower with three cubic volumes and separated horizontally with horizontal offset, with the sky lobby forming the main entry experience to the tower in an open and welcoming environment, according to architectureanddesign.com.au.

The project is expected to deliver 26,000m² of A-grade office space.

The joint venture between Ausgrid and Investa Property Group, which hosted the design competition, will occupy a prime Sydney CBD location.

Ausgrid has proposed the construction of a substation on the site with Investa to develop a commercial tower above.

Fitzpatrick and Partners will now join the project team and technical consultants to commence preparation of planning consent documentation encompassing the overall design of the substation and commercial tower.
