The vision was to create a commercial building that delivers a 21st century design with flexible floor plates to reinvigorate North Sydney as part of global Sydney.

The tower design creates a new gateway to North Sydney, anchoring the northwest corner of the CBD. The asymmetrical composition of forms create a dynamic tower where each volume responds to its respective orientation and solar aspect creating a unique tower which varies depending on the vantage point.

The resulting built form provides for a major public space for the people of North Sydney in the form of a naturally ventilated, all weather Garden Plaza, which is a major extension of the Berry Street Special Area.

There was a design commitment to achieve a minimum 5 star Green Star rating. Specific environmental benefits explored include natural ventilation to the podium, orientation-specific sun shading to minimise heat gain, low temperature VAV or chilled beams, rainwater recycling, solar water heating, and low embodied energy in materials.
