Weeks to build
World renowned architect Koichi Takada has drawn his inspiration for the magnificent Arc by Crown from surrounding iconic Sydney structures like the Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. Hutchies’ 100+ year construction history will deliver the gravitas required for this unique building.
This is a unique and beautifully designed structure that, once completed, will feature distinctly in Sydney’s skyline. Arc by Crown Group will include 178 stunningly appointed strata titled apartments and 86 luxury serviced apartments. The building will feature intricate face brickwork from ground level to level 9, seamlessly transitioning to an elegant hooped roof feature.
Hutchinson Builders was awarded the $115M contract to build the iconic structure based on our detailed and efficient programme; and the strong multi-residential capability of the proposed team which had previously delivered The Residence – a high quality redevelopment of the former police headquarters in Sydney’s Hyde Park. Hutchies’ ability to provide certainty around site logistics that are unusually complex, as a result of the Sydney light rail works in adjacent George Street, was also a key factor in our appointment.
As part of the value management process, Hutchies proposed a superior solution for the façade, utilising a full curtain wall in lieu of the documented window wall and full face brickwork on the base to upgrade the proposed precast hybrid solution. While these improvements did not deliver significant cost savings, the quality of the alternatives will deliver significant design and function benefits.
The indulgent apartments will feature amenities such as a spa, gym, and reflection pool and rooftop courtyard on the penthouse level.
