A $3 Billion Plan to Build a Duplicate Officeblooms in Sydney’s Tech Central, next to the Atlassian Tower currently under construction, has been approved by the City of Sydney.

Central Place Sydney, a joint project between Dexus and Frasers Property Group, is adjacent to Central Station on the south side of Henry Deane Plaza, next to Atlassian’s 40-storey eco-tower, due to be completed by 2026.

It includes two existing office buildings on Lee Street that are currently occupied by various state and federal government departments, including Transport for NSW, Corrective Services and the Dept of Home Affairs.

The two 37- and 35-storey towers were designed by local architects Fender Katsalidis and the American firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM). They sit next to two new smaller buildings, The Connector with 8 floors and a two-storey pavilion.

The Connector, by Melbourne architects Edition Office in collaboration with indigenous design and strategy studio Balarinji, is located on Lee Street and has 10,000 square meters of floor space. It was designed as an “architectural marker recognizing the site’s history as a cultural meeting place”.

Central Place Sydney introduces more than 130,000 square meters of commercial floor space into the area.

Kimberley Jackson, project director of Central Place Sydney, said the buildings will help define the Tech Central district.

“We are extremely pleased to have received Development Approval, enabling us to continue with the project. Our development is designed to create a place where work and lifestyle can merge seamlessly, creating an exciting new destination for Sydney and leveraging what’s already on offer while developing a thriving technology and innovation district,” she said.

“Central Place Sydney will set the benchmark for sustainability for commercial developments of this scale in Australia. The building will contain workplace environments that integrate nature, maximize daylight, have provisions for natural ventilation and are supported by renewable energy to achieve our goal of net zero emissions in operational activities.

“We are partnering with startups and neighboring universities to explore innovations in technology and circular economy, all intended to support development ambitions for carbon reduction and provide the best possible workplace experience for tenants and customers.”

Along with neighboring Atlassian Central and the proposed Toga development, Central Place Sydney will create outdoor spaces as well as expanded retail offerings and elevated connections between neighboring communities.

The project is now awaiting final phase approval from the NSW government, with the hope that construction will start in 2023 and the first phase will be completed in 2027.
