179 HydeSydney NSW Australia
Situated within Sydney’s prestigious Hyde Park precinct, the property has breathtaking views over Hyde Park and Sydney harbour.
The current A-grade office building completed in 1992, is to be redeveloped into a mixed-use offering comprising a grand luxury hotel, with premium residences above. The proposed building footprint is contained within the existing envelope, respecting the solar access plane controls to Hyde Park.
Within the vertical street wall of Elizabeth Street, the building accommodates at ground level the main hotel entries off both Elizabeth and Castlereagh Streets, the hotel reception and lobby, and bistro and bar. Levels 1 to 4 include the existing Tattersalls Club and The Women’s Club. Levels 5 to 10 accommodate 180 hotel suits, with 30 suites per level.
Within the stepped building form of Levels 11 to 18 are 37 premium residences including 2 two-storey penthouses with swimming pools.
The design embodies a feeling of distinctive modern elegance and Manhattan luxury – the facades have a vertical emphasis, with columns clad in black marble, with fluted glazing between.
