Star Casino selects FJMT spiral as design winner

The Star Entertainment Group’s new six-star hotel planned for Sydney has ­selected a winning design.

It is the FJMT design for its Pyrmont site. 

It was the most dramatic tower with a spiral twist, which some have already suggested looks like an askew stack of silver Star casino gaming chips.

The $500 million tower marks the return to the NSW capital of Marriott's premium Ritz-Carlton brand which will rival Crown's planned 71-storey tower across Darling Harbour at Barangaroo. 

FJMT's design was chosen out of a competition that pitted it against local rival BVN and UK-based Grimshaw Architects.

Local sandstone will feature in the base of the building and will fade out out as the tower rises.
