The 50-storey, mixed-use tower will offer a 252-guest room hotel as well as 12,000sq m of commercial space commencing from level 25. The hotel will occupy the lower 20 levels with two floors of public amenity including a reception, bar and restaurant. The 4-star international will occupy 15 levels of the tower with 16 rooms per floor and a top level of suites with 12 rooms on offer. The building is designed with a side core which will enable for selected levels to be integrated to provide multi-level offices up to 1,500 square metres in size. It will cantilever above the existing Firehouse Hotel incorporating the heritage-listed hotel/pub into the tower’s facade. The 10m long cantilever transferring 45 storeys over the heritage-listed Firehouse Hotel, lead to substantial composite steel and a post-tensioned concrete transfer structure being developed at the base. The eccentric loading required complex analysis of creep and shrinkage to control the “lean” on the tower and complex analysis of building dynamics for wind loading. Construction of the new tower commenced in 2019, with an anticipated completion date of early 2021.
