Wilkinson Eyre down to final three in race for Barangaroo hotel tower

  • Comment

Double Stirling Prize-winner Wilkinson Eyre has revealed its proposals in the competition to design a AUS $1 billion ‘resort’ tower in Sydney, Australia

Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture and international giant KPF are also vying for the 235m-tall hotel tower scheme which will house around 350 bedrooms, including 70 ‘opulent suites’ on the top floors as well as 100 luxury apartments, restaurants, shops a spa and casinos.

Shard-architect Renzo Piano, who was named on a four-strong shortlist in February, has since dropped out of the contest.

The six-star Crown Sydney building at Barangaroo has been billed as the ‘most iconic building to be constructed in Sydney since the Opera House’.

The victorious scheme will be built next to Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners’ contentious three-tower Barangaroo project for developer Lend Lease.  

Construction work on the resort skyscraper has been set for 2014, subject to planning, with a scheduled opening date in 2018.

A winner will be named alter this month.
