A $1 billion curvaceous skyscraper at 60 Martin Place - that leans over the historic interwar-era St Stephens Church - has been completed.

Investa Commercial Property Fund (ICPF) and the co-owner Gwynvill Group (Gwynvill) developed the site.

The building was designed by Hassel and contains more than 40,000 square metres  of net lettable area. 

Norton Rose Fulbright, Mizuho Financial Group, Munich Re, Banco Chambers and Spaces are among the core tenants. 

The building will also home to a rooftop garden, as well as the new Toppi Martin Place restaurant on the street corner. 

The building has reached 100% practical completion of all digital assets (71,848 in total) within the 33-level building and the creation of a 'digital twin', driven by Willow and the lead contractor Lendlease.

Rather than an analogue asset register compiled offline, Investa will utilise a digital twin of their asset, i.e. a 'single source of truth'.

This digital twin records and validates all aspects of the building’s equipment, warranty information, operation and maintenance information within an intuitive 3D environment to drive more efficient depreciation planning in operations. 

The digital completion of a building this scale is of great significance, Investa claim.  

It says that previously facilities management teams would have spent months developing this information from scratch, resulting in a sub-standard digital record post-completion.

According to ICPF's group executive and head of commercial development, Mark Tait, the building is currently 80% leased.
