477 on Pitt
Partnering with ISPT, Buildcorp are making significant headway in the transformation of 477 Pitt Street
Now open to the public, the inner-city building has been revitalised into an enlivened technology hub forming a major part of the new Tech Central Sydney innovation district.
Major demolition of the two-floor lobby has repositioned a new ground-floor plane, alongside significant heritage works and landscaping to the outdoor terrace. Other milestones: renewal of the public domain, and major GRC overclad upgrades are currently underway. The building’s new interface transforms the existing commercial asset into a fit-for-purpose workplace for tech companies of all scales, upgrading its access, performance, and design.
The new internals seamlessly integrate with the remarkable heritage found on site. The original AGL showroom situated within has undergone significant fit-out works to repurpose the space as a contemporary venue for hire. Additional conservation works were conducted on the neighbouring Fire Engine House, Sydney’s first fire station, and the adjacent Presbyterian Manse – allowing for the rejuvenation of their existing brickwork and new sandstone cladding.
With the internal scope now complete, work has progressed to deliver one of the largest installations of glass-reinforced concrete (GRC) overclad in Sydney. Several tower cranes and over sixteen mast climbers, set across a vibrant CBD block, have begun delivering over 17,000m2 (or 3,600 individual panels) of GRC to the 32-floor building.
477 now boasts a wealth of new offerings for tenant partners, including several collaborative working and break-out areas, an outdoor terrace, and a new wellness space. The project is complete with additional substation works, and upgrades to the public domain on a major arterial road parallel to Sydney’s light rail.
