Sixty Martin Place

You can’t miss Sixty Martin Place. It’s on a prominent corner in Sydney’s global financial hub, one of the most coveted sites in the city. But the 33-level tower hasn’t let its position go to its head. Just the opposite.

The striking, curved façade offers breathing room to St Stephen's Church next door, a heritage building typical of this pocket of Sydney. Through a unique cantilever design, the tower’s north face extends out eight metres above the 1930s-era stone church.

The building also gives back to the ‘neighbourhood’– by carving out generous public space for indoor and outdoor dining, retail and events. The space forms a “civic room” that's visually connected to the church facade across five levels, and allows people on the upper levels to view and engage with events below.

Sixty Martin Place is in tune with the larger landscape too. When you first glimpse the top of the tower from Sydney Harbour, its green terraces blend with the Domain and Royal Botanic Gardens, making it a natural – yet still distinctive – addition to the skyline.

The mesh covering on the building's core of Sixty Martin Place, Sydney, has a key role to play in sustainability. The core reduces heat load and energy use, allows filtered light to egress stairs, and provides privacy to bathrooms. @investaproperty @LendleaseGroup https://t.co/vg0qsRTwkg
