Brookfield Place Sydney

CBD, Sydney

Brookfield Place Sydney development includes Shell House, 285 George Street and Wynyard Tower projects.

Brookfield Place Sydney (formerly known as Wynyard Place) is a transformational urban regeneration project led Brookfield Property in the heart of Sydney. The development works occur directly above the Wynyard Station Transit hall and across a city block with a total of 3 buildings being incorporated into the development: The Tower, a full demolition and rebuild of a new 27-storey tower and the restoration of two adjacent heritage-listed buildings, Shell House and Beneficial House. The project design is led by London based practice Make Architects in collaboration with Architectus with construction being undertaken by Multiplex.

The centrepiece of the development is a 27 level, 60 000 m 2 PCA Premium Grade commercial tower (10 Carrington) offering world-class facilities, amenities and finishes to set a new standard in workplace design. The development also includes the retention and restoration of Shell House and 285 George Street, creating 9400 m2 of boutique office space. In addition to the commercial space created as part of the project, 7000 m2 of high-end retail, a revitalised Wynyard Lane and a major upgrade to Wynyard Station’s George Street entrance connecting to a grand transit hall and public concourse are also included within the project.

The project has addressed a significant number of diverse challenges from a design and construction perspective ranging from the integration of highly aspirational architectural design, Heritage Restoration, Rail Integration, Heavy Load Transfers, Development of operational and building logistics to suit its multi-faceted requirements, Physical Security Threat Assessment and working in operational environments.

TTW collaborated with an international design team in a Design and Construct environment to deliver an outstanding outcome for Brookfield and their investors. Collaboration in developing the design into a buildable, economic solution whilst maintaining the architectural intent of the design was a key aspect of the work that TTW undertook across the project.
