One Circular Quay will sit in one of Sydney’s most enviable positions overlooking the waterfront and nestled between the city’s famous landmarks in the opera house and harbour bridge.
The Alfred Street development site spans the width of the block from George Street to Pitt Street. The project features the One Circular Quay residential tower, a luxury international five-star hotel tower and dedicated accessible public space at ground level.
As the name suggest, the project is directly across the road from the internationally-renowned Circular Quay, waterfront precinct at the edge of Sydney’s thriving CBD.
One Circular Quay will afford spectacular blue water views of the harbour, which will serve as a constant reminder of its prized location. This will combine with top class dining experiences, high-end retail and fabulous entertainment amenities, to place One Circular Quay among the world’s most desirable addresses.
The residential tower, while contemporary in design, will express an elegant sympathy for its surrounds. With hints of bronze it will address the city from every angle through the stylish use of floor to ceiling glass windows that will allow an abundance of natural light to flow. The building’s exterior will also incorporate other high-quality finishes such as a grounding of sandstone, aluminium sunshades and a masonry curtain wall system.
The use of sandstone echoes the heritage of Sydney’s cityscape, which includes the historic Rocks precinct nearby and the other grand buildings of the CBD that hark back to another prosperous era.
Celebrated Australian designer Kerry Hill, of Kerry Hill Architects, has conceived the design for the residential tower’s façade, while the hotel tower is being designed by Crone Architects in Sydney, in collaboration with Tokyo-based Japanese architect Kengo Kuma of KKAA.
One Circular Quay will certainly add to the grandeur of Sydney and will underline Yuhu Group Australia’s commitment to development quality and integrity.
