2 July 2015 - After more than 100 years, the Sydney community was reunited with parts of Barangaroo South today, when Lendlease opened various streets and walkways and welcomed the precinct’s first retailer, Toby’s Estate.
Lendlease Managing Director of Barangaroo South, Andrew Wilson said more than 8.5 million construction hours have transformed the former container wharf into the makings of Sydney’s newest financial services hub and foodie destination of choice: “What has been achieved at Barangaroo South since the first sod was turned in October 2011 is extraordinary.
“International Towers Sydney (ITS) will be Sydney’s newest business address with over 23,000 hungry office workers to feed. Toby’s Estate is the first of up to 90 retailers on site and is well positioned in the lobby of Tower Two to meet the needs of these future office workers.”
In addition, the Barangaroo South foreshore has reopened for public access.
“Inviting people to walk along the harbourfront at Barangaroo is a truly remarkable occasion. This is a vital new development for Sydney and we are looking forward to revealing more of the public domain to Sydneysiders in the coming year,” Mr Wilson said.
Toby Smith, founder of one of Australia's finest coffee roasters, Toby’s Estate, said he chose ITS for its iconic location: “Our team of passionate and dedicated baristas are committed to delivering an uncompromised coffee experience at our stunning new home in Tower Two.”
“By sharing our passion for specialty coffee with our customers and serving a broad range of quality food options throughout the working week, we’re excited about getting to know our new customers at Barangaroo.”
The final fitout for Westpac Group, the anchor tenant of Tower Two, will continue throughout July in anticipation of the first employees joining the precinct from next month.
