Sydney’s One Barangaroo Reaches New Construction Milestones
Sydney, Australia 15 March 2019
Following 14 months of construction, the One Barangaroo hotel and casino development stands almost 120 meters above the harbor, with the first level of the Crown Residences, level 33, scheduled to be poured in July.
In December, Crown and developer Lendlease won a fight against the New South Wales government to retain Sydney’s billion-dollar harbor views at the Barangaroo project, in a decision handed down by the Supreme Court.
When complete the development will also house a “limited collection” of 82 private residences.
The construction team has reached three building stages: completion of the podium structure, capped off by two rooftop infinity swimming pools, fitting of the first of the hotel rooms, and installation of the glass façade.
Crown Resorts’ Todd Nisbet described Crown Sydney as “one of Australia’s most sophisticated buildings,” targeting investment from ultra-high-net-worth individuals.
Up to 78,000 cubic meters of concrete has now been placed, with 14,000 tons of reinforcement, and 3,037 tons of structural steel in the podium structure placed to date.
Hotel floors start at level six and are now up to level 21.
The lift core currently sits at level 29, the current highest point of construction at 120 meters above the water.
