Architectural firm Crone Partners is set to work on the redevelopment of 333 George Street in Sydney’s central business district (CBD) in New South Wales.
Crone will work alongside London-based architectural firm Grimshaw Architects to deliver the project. The construction work will be handled by Westpac.
The existing building is currently being demolished and construction on the new building is scheduled to begin in the second quarter of the year.
333 George Street is located on the corner of Martin Place and George Street and the new building will feature 15 levels of A-grade office space, three levels of retail space, rooftop terraces and basement parking.
The 18-storey tower will feature a crystalline facade and curved corners that open up and tilt back as the building rises.
The lower floors of the building will be designed for retail use and the upper decks for workspaces, which will be environmentally sustainable offering daylight and views of the city.
The top tiers of 333 George Street will house stepped landscaped terraces, which will be sheltered by a glazed tiara and offer integrated outdoor and indoor workspaces with natural light.
Around 2,100m² of space will be kept aside for retail use and will feature fluted sandstone columns.
The building design also includes the entry lobby and an end-of-journey facility.
The 333 George Street project is scheduled for completion in mid 2016.
