The now tallest residential tower in Sydney, the Greenland Tower, is said to be a marvel in the eyes of Australian architecture and engineering. The tower is proudly designed by BVN and Woods Bagot and the principal engineer for the project is Arup. They have jointly announced the opening of the tower which rises 235 meters.
With 479 apartments, the Greenland Tower also features a creative hub, retail spaces and new outdoor balconies on the highest floors. These will now be known as the Sydney balconies and boast views of not only the city’s CBD but also the Blue Mountains, Hyde Park and Sydney Harbour.
To combat the normally dangerous height, these balconies feature angled glass panes that are artfully suspended to protect from wind and rain.
The Greenland Tower was actually already a 26-storey commercial building that was initially constructed in the 1960s, but instead of demolishing the building, the architects decided to add 41-storeys of residential residences.
With architectural artworks by US artist Larry Bell and local artist Agatha Goeth-Snape, the building features stunning angled windows, red angled glass panes and many layers of colour and shape. This makes the building a new icon in the city and is already beloved by many Sydney officials and locals.
