Rogers' reworks Sydney Harbour scheme
Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH+P) has trimmed down and ‘refined’ its £3.5 billion regeneration of the Barangaroo district of Sydney Harbour
According to developer Lend Lease three office towers at Barangaroo South, have been ‘tapered’ and made ‘more elgeant and streamlined’ in response to public consultation (Commercial tower 4 pictured).
Meanwhile it is understood the proposed waterfront hotel has been reduced in height from 213m to 159m.
Lend Lease’s Group Head of Development David Hutton said: ‘We have responded to Council’s comments and introduced refinements that improve the scale and appearance of the building and we have produced an even better result.
‘Barangaroo South is designed to strengthen Sydney’s reputation as an innovative professional and financial services hub. It is destined to become Australia’s premier - and most sustainable - business address as well as one of the most dynamic and attractive places to work.’

In Pictures: Rogers’ Sydney Harbour regeneration
The AJ can unveil exclusive images of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSH+P) £3.5 billion regeneration of the Barangaroo district of Sydney.
Backed by developer Lend Lease, the project includes 323,700m² of offices, nearly 800 flats, the 33,000m² Hero Hotel and 33,800m² of shops and restaurants nestled on the shores of Sydney’s famous harbour.
Lend Lease’s group head of development, David Hutton, said: ‘There have been some further modifications since June to some building heights to achieve this and to provide further scope for design excellence.
‘We have been consulting widely with the community and others since our selection at the end of last year, and this has contributed to refinements to our plans.’
The revised masterplan for the scheme is about to go on public display.
RSH+P saw off Foster + Partners, teamed up with developers Brookfield, to land the redevelopment of the former industrial and shipping site in December last year.
