AMP Capital has received Stage 2 Development Application (DA) approval to refurbish Sydney’s first skyscraper, 33 Alfred Street, Circular Quay, from the City of Sydney.
Built in 1962, 33 Alfred Street has local heritage listing and is an iconic part of Sydney’s harbour skyline.
The work, which is currently due to start in 2021, will include refreshing the building’s façade as well as modernising its services and interior while maintaining its heritage characteristics and reinstating lost building features.
Once complete, the building will be premium grade, with improved environmental performance. 33 Alfred Street is targeting a 5 Star NABERS rating and a 5 Star Green Star v3 rating.
AMP Capital Real Estate Chief Operating Officer Louise Mason said: “We are delighted to have received approval for the redevelopment of 33 Alfred Street from the City of Sydney, who we have consulted with on this project for more than two years. After 55 years, it’s time to upgrade the building and give it new life for many more decades of service.
“This work will make 33 Alfred Street one of Sydney’s most highly sought-after, premium-grade office buildings. However, it will still be recognisable as one of the most loved and distinctive buildings at Circular Quay, the gateway to Sydney. We are committed to sensitively and sustainably renewing 33 Alfred Street for the benefit of its investors, future tenants and the local community.”
AMP Capital has been advised by architect JPW.
33 Alfred Street is jointly owned by investors in the AMP Capital Diversified Property Fund and the AMP Capital Wholesale Office Fund.
