1 Castlereagh St, Sydney

The redevelopment of 1 Castlereagh Street offers the potential to activate the street frontage of the building, creating an offer appropriate to its location within the Sydney CBD. The modifications to the podium promotes street presence and enhances the northerly aspect opening over Richard Johnson Square. This space to the north provides the opportunity to create one of Sydney’s great food spots. The surrounding redevelopment is again positioning this part of the CBD as the prime business end of town.  The proposed development is designed to maximise these opportunities. A new podium solution bought to the street edge will create a strong street wall, enhancing the pedestrian amenity, identity and appeal of the building. The careful choice of materials respects the character, richness and proportion of the neighbouring heritage buildings, whilst still sitting comfortably within the modern context of Castlereagh Street.

Ground floor retail environments have been designed to maximise the solar orientation and street presence. This provides opportunities for many different uses, from classic bespoke eateries, fine dining, Bars or high end retailing.  The refurbished lobby provides the amenity and level of service expected within the contemporary workplace.

The level one space has the opportunity to be an extension of the ground plane retail/F+B environment, or operate as a standalone commercial office/ retail space. This also has the potential to link to the first standard commercial floor - level 2. Level 2 now has an extensive protected outdoor space atop the new podium, allowing the integration of the workplace to the outdoor environment.The redevelopment of 1 Castlereagh Street offers the potential to activate the street frontage of the building, creating an offer appropriate to its location within the Sydney CBD.
