An exceptional building

A striking redevelopment combining commercial useability with specifications of a modern office building including sustainable features, whilst also preserving significant heritage value.

Prominently located on the corner of Martin Place and Elizabeth Street, the redevelopment has transformed the interior of the historic building into a state-of-the-art commercial workspace. The landmark heritage-listed building was initially constructed between 1925 and 1928 and is a rare Australian example of the American influenced Inter-War Beaux-Arts style.

The historic 1928 building now offers a contemporary office of more than 20,000 square metres over 11 levels, whilst also preserving the heritage banking chamber on the ground floor.

Multiplex undertook a range of construction works to deliver the project, including a complete refurbishment of building services and systems, fit out of the interiors, widening of the existing atrium, construction of a new two-storey glass-domed roof and glass shuttle lifts. Internal stairways have also been constructed to encourage greater interconnectivity and collaboration between employees.
