The twin tower project comprises of 13 and 12 storey towers over two levels of parking for 485 vehicles. The 328 apartments are a mix of studios, 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms. The building has commercial floor space at podium level and expansive landscaping over the site area of 8,757m2.
Sydney Airport is located just a few hundred meters away from the site so the use of flattop cranes with anti-collision systems were installed to keep under the limited airspace imposed by the airport.
The building heights required some solution orientated engineering to keep the cranes close to the maximum heights available whilst still allowing clearance over the top of the finished buildings. We were able to overcome this by incorporating differing tower crane bases under the basement concrete slabs.
