Crone worked collaboratively with SOM on this landmark site to design a slender pair of towers linked by a bridge on each floor with the aim to redefine high-rise living in Sydney.

The 270m tower is shaped for views with carefully consideredand expansive corner outlooks in all directions on all levels. A fine-grained, porous podium, bringing the vibrancy of Sydney’s streets into a light-filled network of laneways. We co-designed a new amenity and moment of urban discovery for the CBD, an indoor and outdoor “Hidden Garden” that connects laneways to George Street, Kent Street and Town Hall Plaza.

Pedestrian-scaled, diverse and tactile, the podium is inspired by the city’s urban fabric and its most iconic material: sandstone. The shop fronts and facades are articulated by curved-cut sandstone pilasters and spandrels.
