Designed by Fender Katsalidis, Macky Corp has lodged a development application for a new commercial tower in Liverpool.
Located on the corner of Scott and Bigge streets, the landmark project will act as a powerful new catalyst, transforming the Liverpool CBD into a vibrant hive of commercial activity.
The new tower will provide 1,200m2 floor plates totalling 25,000m2 of new office space, 1,500m2 of co-working and 640 m2 of retail.
The building has been designed as a gateway tower marking the arrival to Liverpool as you pass over the Georges River. It has been shaped to allow sunlight to penetrate deeply into to the heritage precinct and new civic space whilst also providing a generous response to the heritage listed New Commercial Hotel. This sculptural response will add an exciting new addition to the developing Liverpool skyline.
The tower has been elevated to create a volume of space that responds to the scale of the heritage building. This volume allows views both in and out of the site allowing the heritage building to sit comfortably in its original position
At ground level the tower elegantly floats above the new civil stables heritage precinct, creating a highly permeable ground plane opening up a large new public space providing new through site links in all directions.
The exciting new stables precinct is flanked by the Heritage New Commercial Hotel, creating a series of laneways and a shaded public plaza which will provide a vibrant and diverse food and beverage offer.
The Stables precinct has been designed with flexibility in mind; it will be programmed to hold a series of events and activities and is destined to become one of Liverpool’s go to places.
The upper levels of the Hotel and Stables buildings will also provide series of co-working spaces.
