INSPIRED BY SYDNEY HARBOUR
Tony Leung, CEO of A+Design Group and the man responsible for the original design of The Landmark, suggests that The Landmark will be iconic addition to St Leonards and that its design draws inspiration from nearby Sydney Harbour.
“The concept for this iconic tower was inspired by Sydney Harbour; this is reﬂected by the waves of this sculptural tower," he says.
"This development will create a sense of place and a new identity for the St Leonards area.”
Leung also notes that his firm will continue to be involved in the project until completion in early 2020.
