Show all

The 18-storey luxury apartment tower on the site of the former Crest Hotel included 135 high-end apartments plus retail offerings. The project offered some of the most incredible views of Sydney CBD and Sydney Harbour. Design features included:

  • Luxury 1, 2 and 3-bedroom residences and penthouses
  • Retail and major supermarket

WGE’s role included full detailed design of mechanical, hydraulic, fire protection, electrical, vertical transportation, sustainability and acoustics. The most difficult challenge was to incorporate traditional residential unit services into the existing building with a 2850mm floor to floor height. The curved façade added some additional challenges with drainage and services integration.
