The development of Sydney’s original high street continues with the announcement of a Competitive Design Alternatives Process (CDAP) for the redevelopment of 210-220 George Street.

Architectus has submitted a Stage 1 development application for the construction of a 25-storey, 110 metre office tower to kick things off, but the project will now undergo a CDAP which will see designs from up to five firms.

2.PNGThe site is currently occupied by two older style commercial buildings which will be demolished to make way for a singular tower that will deliver approximately 16,000sqm of commercial office GFA across eight podium floors and 11 tower floors.

It has a Local Environmental Plan height limit of 110 metres but additional floor space and height can be added as part of the CDAP.

It is situated next door to the recently completed 200 George Street by Francis Jones Morehen Thorp and down the road from the Circular Quay precinct which is set to undergo a massive transformation in the coming years.

It will sit just outside the Alfred, Pitt, Dally & George street block which is soon to be developed into a cluster of new skyscrapers including one each from Kerry Hill Architects, Crone and Kengo Kuma, and another yet to be decided.

The iconic Circular Quay wharves down the road are also set to receive a $200 million upgrade, and Woods Bagot have delivered the concept design

Up the road at 333 George Street and the covers are just coming off Grimshaw and Crone’s 18-storey cascading crystalline office block.
