Showcasing Circular Quay Tower and Barangaroo South – Two Major Sydney Urban Renewal Projects
11 July 2017
CTBUH is pleased to announce that Lendlease is confirmed as a Diamond Sponsor of the 2017 Conference. Since Australia Square was opened in Sydney 50 years ago, Lendlease has significantly contributed to city skylines across the globe with spectacular buildings like Deutsche Bank Place in Sydney, Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur and 432 Park Avenue in New York. As well as tall buildings, Lendlease is developing innovative timber projects, such as International House Sydney, Australia’s first engineered timber office building, and 25 King Street in Brisbane, which will become the largest of its kind in the world.
Lendlease’s sponsorship will showcase Circular Quay Tower and Barangaroo South, two developments changing the face of Sydney. Circular Quay Tower, at 263 meters, will be Sydney’s tallest office tower in a precinct that will offer two new public plazas, a laneway network with cafés, bars and retail, and a community building.
Barangaroo South, the city’s largest urban renewal project since the 2000 Olympics, is Sydney’s thriving commercial and retail hub. The vibrant precinct is home to architecture that is not only world class in its design, but unrivalled in sustainability credentials. International Towers will be the first WELL Core & Shell Certified buildings globally; the precinct has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star Communities rating and is targeting carbon neutrality by 2020.
Keynote Address: Ross Palmer, Senior Partner, Foster + Partners: Circular Quay Tower
Ross Palmer, Senior Partner of international architecture firm Foster + Partners, will deliver the keynote address on Circular Quay Tower, addressing the design and architectural vision of the project, which was selected as part of a design competition. Palmer will explore the key design considerations and public realm outcomes that drove the design of the iconic new tower.
Ivan Harbour, Partner, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, architects of International Towers will also deliver a presentation discussing the topic of “From the City to the Light Bulb,” examining the Barangaroo South master plan, its urban design and the key role that the project has played in delivering a new public realm, kick-starting a renewal of the Sydney CBD.
Joining the architects will be a Senior Executive from Lendlease to discuss the future of high-density cities and how the likes of Circular Quay Tower and Barangaroo have influenced this.

International Towers at Barangaroo will also be the venue of the Day 1 Networking Reception, on the evening of Monday 30 October, hosted by Lendlease and sponsored by Schindler. As the sun sets, guests will enjoy stunning western views of Sydney and the Barangaroo precinct.
