Tzannes were engaged by Lend Lease following a Stage 1 Concept Plan approval by the Department of Planning that defined the building envelope, car parking rates and key public domain improvements.
This project, for 581 apartments, plays an important role in the city. The building operates on the large scale, forming a whole city block and contributing to the city skyline in a significant way. At the same time the project establishes detailed relationships with its fine grained urban context, providing a rich variety and texture within these large scale elements. The project consists of 4 major parts, a 6 story podium that defines the street wall on four sides, a 41 story tower to the north, a 19 story tower to the east and 7 story tower to the west.
These towers each have their own character that responds to their urban condition. This tactic along with a re-entrant defines them as distinct elements above the podium.
