The 55-story Salesforce Tower at Sydney Place, designed by British architect Foster + Partners, has reached its peak.

The 263m high structure will be covered with criss-crossing pedestrian walkways that start and end at different levels and are lined with shops, cafes and bars.

The facade of the project is covered with a series of braces derived from structural stress diagrams, and the south facade is divided into three bays with the concrete cores surrounding three transparent rows of elevators.

Located between George and Pitt streets, the tower offers flexible column-free workspaces that maximize views of Sydney Harbour.

Salesforce hopes to achieve 5.5 stars out of a possible six on the National Australian Built Environment Rating System scale and aims to become the first building in Sydney to earn a platinum pre-certification rating on the WELL standard.

Muir Livingstone, partner of Fosters, mentioned“Salesforce Tower at Sydney Place will breathe new life into the surrounding urban precinct which forms part of Sydney’s iconic Circular Quay.

“We look forward to working with Lendlease and our executive architects Architectus, who have supported us through the final stages of this project.”
