Site approved for a commercial building development. Construction yet to commence. Site of CSR engineering workshops.
The site was zoned commercial, which discouraged purchasers until 2018, when the Milligan Group bought it, and began to build Workshop, a modern office complex designed by architects Bates Smart. Milligan aspired “to create the best campus-style creative building in Sydney and to respond to the wider needs of the Pyrmont community”. Nine stories high, with three more underground levels, Workshop has an open atrium providing natural light. Its leasable area is 18,888 square metres with seven levels of commercial office space.
In 2019 Milligan sold the property to the Singapore-based Suntec REIT Group for about $300 million. The anchor tenant is Publicis Groupe, a global communications and advertising company. The building was completed in 2020.
