One Sydney Harbour Development Approved By Planning Assessment Commission
AvLaw Consulting has successfully advised Lendlease on two Barangaroo towers, which the Planning Assessment Commission have now approved.
We are advising on building heights for Lendlease’s ‘One Sydney Harbour’ development that stretches right across Sydney’s beautiful Barangaroo. Two of these buildings have just received approval from the Commission. NSW Planning and Environment previously recommended approval in August.
The construction of these two buildings are very significant. Over 600 new homes could join office buildings, restaurants and coffee shops. The developments will cost $750 million creating over 1,000 construction jobs according to the Executive Director of Key Sites and Industry Assessments.
We assisted to ensure the developments were consistent with the relevant aviation regulations including building height compliance. This is for the purpose of making the construction project safe for the many planes that fly over Sydney Harbour every day.
In a media release published by NSW Planning, the Department also noted that Lendlease designed the towers to “reduce the impact on views from surrounding areas”. Renzo Piano, the firm’s architect, designed the buildings to be slender and spaced further apart. Piano is a globally recognised Italian architect, who has designed constructions such as the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, The Shard in London and Sydney’s very own Aurora Place. In the aviation sphere, he also designed Kansai International Airport in Osaka, Japan.
We look forward to our continued partnership with Lendlease.
Buildings that are constructed without their impact on aviation being considered may pose risks to the safety and regularity of aircraft operations. AvLaw has maintained a 100 per cent success rate with all its previous tall building projects.
