Australia: Sydney-based developer Crown Group has announced plans for a $250-million tower in the city’s CBD.
The 220-unit Sydney by Crown will launch on November 22 and will
feature a mix of private sale apartments and Crown Group's boutique
Designed by Koichi Takada Architects, the 25-storey building will feature "heritage-inspired lower levels transitioning to a modern glass-and-steel tower, capped with more than a dozen steel arches".
Construction is scheduled for completion in 2017.
Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito said: "Sydney by Crown's innovative design created by Koichi Takada sets a new architectural benchmark for Sydney. We are proud to be able to deliver a truly iconic building in this emerging global city. The location of Sydney by Crown in the heart of the city and also walking distance to tourist hotspots such as the Sydney Opera House, Barangaroo and Darling Harbour is exceptional. Crown Group had clear vision to create a building which reflected the international, forward-thinking nature of Sydney. Sydney by Crown will be unlike anything seen before in Sydney."
