CRONE has won a design excellence competition for a new residential and hotel tower at 230 Sussex Street, Sydney.

Its design integrates the existing heritage-listed Foley Brothers warehouse with a new 115-metre hotel and residential tower.

The warehouse will be adapted to host a striking heritage courtyard and hotel lobby, creating a focal point and activated heart of the Meriton development.

CRONE design director Niall Durney said the tower’s strong connection to the existing heritage warehouse together with references to the surrounding streetscape were the winning qualities of the design.

“The tower sits on a sandstone podium with proportions taken from the adjacent heritage building,” he said.

Construction of the new 230 Sussex Street precinct will commence in April 2017 with completion expected October 2018.
