An expressionist design for an office building in Sydney’s Green Square has been submitted for planning assessment.
Developed by Toga Group, the AU$141 million (US$103 million) project would deliver 28,751 square meters of office and retail space, along with end-of-trip facilities.

Designed by Bates Smart, the 16-story building’s form offers a contemporary reinterpretation of the area’s industrial saw-tooth geometry.
The building at 6-12 O'Riordan Street will sit atop a solid masonry base with arched openings and vertical and horizontal shading fins in red oxide again recalling old factories.
Retail tenancies and corner cafes will help to activate this link and the surrounding public domain. Landscaped roof terraces from Level 10 to 16 will feature landscape roof terraces, while a “naturally ventilated social heart” constructed of timber will sit between two distinct workplace volumes, according to an article in Architecture AU.
Bates Smart won a City of Sydney Design Excellence competition for the project.
The development application is on public exhibit until 17 September.
