Quay Quarter Precinct Construction

AMP Capital are creating Sydney’s most dynamic new neighbourhood, set to evolve at the gateway to the city; a flourishing harbourside destination, boldly transforming the way we work, live and play. We’re giving back the laneways, creating a vibrant cultural hub of busting shops, complimented by world class restaurants, cafes and bars. This is where Sydney will step out when it wants to embrace life.

Quay Quarter Tower

Quay Quarter Tower, the architectural masterpiece designed by Danish Architects 3XN, is currently under construction by MULTIPLEX. The project features a 49-storey commercial tower and retail podium that will form the centrepiece for the Quay Quarter Sydney precinct. The 200-meter-high tower will compromise a series of shifting glass volumes stacked upon each other to provide a striking facade and an atrium that will cut all the way through the building.

Quay Quarter Tower will retain 68% of the original structure and feature the latest in commercial office technology whilst targeting 6-star Green Star and 5.5 Star NABERS ratings. This will play a vital role in the vision of Quay Quarter Sydney to transform Circular Quay into a vibrant destination that supports Sydney’s future as a green, global and connected city.

MULTIPLEX is a premier global construction company, shaping skylines and delivering iconic projects for over 55 years. As the construction partner on Quay Quarter Tower, MULTIPLEX has been utilising its broad experience in delivering complex projects with challenging requirements – such as constructing over and around existing structures, the issues associated with constrained sites and working in highly visible environments.
