The soaring building with a contrasting panelled facade is crowned by an expansive roof terrace at level 21, which provides integrated communal spaces alongside stunning 360-degree city and district views.
The buildings western facade is designed by Lacoste Stevenson, giving the structure a unique point of difference. The use of colour throughout the structure has received high praise, with the development named as a finalist in the Dulux Colour Awards.
The development includes recreational areas such as the common room, laundry, music room, TV and games room, as well as a barbeque terrace overlooking the Ultimo Pedestrian Network and offering stunning views over Darling Harbour.
