Wynward Place Rises in the Heart of Sydney
WORKS are progressing on Sydney's latest large mixed-use development.
Set to transform Carrington Street in the heart of the Central Business District (CBD), the scheme involves the construction of a 6 Green Star rated office
tower and the restoration of two heritage buildings, alongside the creation of new retail space and a world-class transit hall for Wynyard Station.

Dubbed "Wynard Place", the development’s centrepiece is a 27 storey commercial tower whose facade is composed of interlocking rectangular blocks that become less dense and visually lighter as they gain height, resulting in a unique layered appearance.

Careful analysis has been undertaken to check that each elevation of the building complements the city’s skyline, ensuring optimal views to and from the tower.

The transit hall beneath the tower contains grand entrances, legible pedestrian concourses and flagship retail stores. While the adjacent Shell House, built in the 1930s, will be fully restored and converted into office space.
There will also be better integration with the nearby Wynard Park with a focus on the pedestrian experience.
