Crown Sydney is located within Barangaroo South, one of three presitgious precincts on the foreshore of Darling Harbour, on the western edge of the city’s CBD. The project consists of a six-star hotel and members only casino taking in views of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The tower will accommodate a total of 350 hotel rooms, an additional 80 luxury residential apartments and the podium will contain a mix of restaurants and bars, retail outlets, function rooms as well as a Crown branded VIP gaming experience.
Robert Bird Group have been involved in the project since 2013 and brought global expertise in tall tower projects with a top down jump start construction technique. It is a first for Sydney and a technique that provides significant programme savings.
The Crown project has been advancing rapidly as the Basement excavation has recently been completed and the tower well established above ground. This is a significant milestone of the top-down construction method and allows the super-structure to continue to progress.
The tower is due for completion in 2022.
