KANNFINCH conceptualises 240m tower to be Australia's thinnest structure 


Architects KANNFINCH, on behalf of Brookfield, have prepared a stage 1 DA and concept design for a site at 115 Bathurst Street in Sydney’s CBD. The stage one development consent allows for what will be the tallest building in the Sydney skyline.

The mixed use project, on a 4,000 sq m site, proposes a retail & commercial podium at the base of up to 70 residential levels (approximately 420 apartments), together with the integration with and adaptive reuse of the State heritage listed adjoining building at 339 Pitt Street.

New pedestrian laneways have been introduced to connect and activate the ground floor adjoining heritage building and link Bathurst Street and Pitt Street through the laneways to Town Hall station.

A key challenge has been in the structural engineering of what will be Australia’s most slender tower, with a height of approximately 240m. One of the design features is the innovative floor-plate layout, which allows all apartments to have access to direct northern sun and views.
