Developers are calling MEZZO, a four towered mixed-use development designed by CHROFI and Kannfinch for the edge of inner Sydney and Glebe, a step towards revitalising New South Wales’ Bays Precinct.
As new committees and international summits begin planning the future of the Bays Precinct’s public sector, MEZZO developers said their project is the first contribution from the private sector towards the betterment of the precinct.
CHROFI and Kannfinch were winners of a City of Sydney Design Excellence Competition to design the project, and their winning concept endeavoured to capture the historic warehouse context of Glebe in a modern architectural form with high quality finishes
The project’s 190 apartments will be delivered over four ten-storey towers that are footed by a two storey commercially focused podium.
A rooftop garden has been planned for Tower B; as seen in the distance above and in detail below.
The four ‘tower pods’ will overlook 32 acres of landscaped parkland and the curving podium attempts to create a flowthrough effect from the parkland. The ten storey towers will also capture views of Sydney’s CBD and Anzac Bridge, looking north over Wentworth Park.
The project is currently in the final DA approval stages with the City of Sydney and is expected to commence construction in early 2015.
