Brookfield Place Sydney comprises a 6 Star Green Star-rated office tower, two restored heritage buildings, premium retail space and a multi-level transit hall, along with new pedestrian connections across the public domain. This award-winning development has transformed a constrained site in Sydney’s central business district and stitched it back into the city’s existing infrastructure, creating a new civic front door for Wynyard Station, one of its busiest transit hubs.

The development’s centrepiece 27-storey office tower is sculpted to respond to the rhythm of the wider city block, appearing as a series of interlocking orthogonal blocks of differing scales.

The project sensitively mixes heritage and new-build architecture in a vibrant example of adaptive urban re-use.

The fully integrated development has re-established Carrington Street as one of Sydney’s prime addresses.

The triple-height transit hall links George Street, Carrington Street and the nearby Wynyard Park for the first time, creating a dynamic, people-centric urban space.

The new tower merges with the adjacent listed 10-storey Shell House, with the latter’s historic facade fully restored and 400-tonne clocktower retained.

Comprehensive improvements to the public domain have established vital new connections across the site.

Thanks to carefully phased delivery, the station’s commuter concourse was able to remain operational throughout construction.
