Dexus, an Australian real estate investment trust, has topped out ‘100 Mount Street’, a new-generation office building in Sydney, Australia, after more than two years of construction.

The 35-storey building covers a total area of 42,100m² and has become the tallest commercial tower on the North Sydney skyline.

Dexus and Dexus Wholesale Property Fund own the project, which is being constructed by Laing O’Rourke. The project will adopt the latest in smart building technology, setting a new benchmark for office on Sydney’s north shore.

Located in the heart of the North Sydney CBD on the corner of Mount and Walker Streets, the development offers exceptional views to the South, East and North.

The development includes an open public space at ground level, two ground-floor retail areas, and amenities such as change rooms, showers, and lockers with naturally ventilated breakout spaces.

Designed to achieve a 5-Star Green Star Design and As-Built v1.1 rating and a 5-Star NABERS Energy rating, the project also includes a highly-efficient double skin facade which minimises solar heat load; and basement parking facility for 113 vehicles.

The project is expected to be completed in early 2019.

Dexus chief investment officer Ross Du Vernet said: “We are excited to be leading North Sydney’s revitalisation through the creation of our premium office development which will bring around 4,000 workers to the North Sydney CBD.”

Laing O’Rourke’s Australia Hub managing director Cathal O’Rourke said: “Offering sweeping views over Sydney Harbour towards the Sydney CBD, this building incorporates the latest innovations in high rise design and construction.

“100 Mount Street will feature high levels of customer amenity including premium end-of-trip facilities, concierge and smart building connectivity designed to provide customers with flexibility.

“The building adopts a number of sustainability initiatives, including a double skin façade, that will enhance customer comfort and significantly reduce energy consumption.”

North Sydney Mayor Jilly Gibson said that the development will enhance the vibrancy of the North Sydney CBD through the activation of a prominent corner, bringing this area of the CBD to life through the provision of new retail and restaurants for the local community.
