A $320 million commercial project Parramatta, 32 Smith Street, ‘topped out’ by Fender Katsalidis and the GPT Group.

The 25-storey office building, which will see QBE become the anchor tenant, is set to become one of the most sustainable commercial office towers in the Parramatta CBD.

Fender Katsalidis director Mark Curzon said the construction milestone of the 26,500sqm sculptural tower, which commenced last year, was a significant step.

“This is an important gateway building for the emerging city and new civic space, delivering a world-class, cutting-edge, workplace environment, through its urban, sustainability and design philosophy-based solutions," Mr Curzon added.

The tower includes landscaped extern roof terraces, balconies throughout and a publicly accessible urban room.

32 Smith Street is on track for completion in late-2020.

Fender Katsalidis is well known for their design of the Australia 108 tower, which pays homage to the Australian flag with a rotated golden structure protruding from the building.

Other projects designed by the team include Royal Fund’s residential project Bijou in Victoria’s Camberwell and Crema Group’s Derby Place in Kew.

The topping out at 32 Smith Street follows the architects’ recent appointment to design the $2.5 billion Central Place Sydney project.
