Sydney’s Vertical Village Takes Shape

CONSTRUCTION works on Sydney’s Quay Quarter Tower are progressing at pace. The unique project is shaping up to be a striking new addition to the city’s iconic skyline.

The 50-storey structure is designed to feature the latest in commercial office technology and will have a 6-star Green Star and 5.5 Star NABERS rating.

The tower will build on the already existing AMP Centre, retaining 68% of the original structure, extending the building’s height from 188-metres to 216 and adding substantial floor space.

The new tower, which will envelope the AMP Centre, is designed by Danish architect 3XN and is being built by Multiplex.

3XN have envisioned a series of rotating volumes, each maximising natural light and each acting as a distinct vertical village.

Construction progress has been rapid with the northern slab demolition already past its halfway mark, while the building’s new core has started to emerge. Chillers have been installed, as have the first of 4,790 facade panels.

The project has been hailed as an exemplary way to redevelop city blocks and create greener, better-connected neighbourhoods.

The tower is expected to be completed in 2022.
