Sydney's number one penthouse hits the market

Sydney's number one penthouse, located at One Macquarie Street, has officially hit the market.

The Bennelong apartment was quietly listed for sale late last year, but now it comes with live marketing which provides architect impressions of the top floor apartment on completion.

Currently in the process of being gutted, the pictures are the concept of acclaimed architect Koichi Takada. There is also a Goldeneye Media video with the marketing.

Many will know Takada as the preferred architect of choice for model Jen Hawkins, the face of Myer, and her husband Jake Wall.

They used Takada on a number of occasions when they were building houses in the Curl Curl area. Takada also designed their new forever home in Newport.

The Bennelong apartment was under the long-time ownership of the Moran family of the Moran Health Care, but a caveat suggests the owner and vendor is veteran property developer Keith Johnson.

Spanning 360 sqm, the apartment has views over the Sydney Harbour, including the bridge and the Opera House. 

Dominic Ong, the Australia’s Head of Asian Markets at Knight Frank has been enlisted to undertake the marketing.

Last year the building saw a $10.5 million sale when the 2GB radio broadcaster Alan Jones bought a smaller, dated, apartment six floors down.

In 2015 developer Sam Arnaout spent $18 million buying from the Maloney publican family on the 11th floor.

The Sydney price record stands at $96,000 a sqm when $27 million was paid off the plan in the Opera Residences development - five doors up Macquarie Street bordering the Cahill Expressway on the site of the old Coca Cola Amatil building.

The former chief of Tenix, Robert Salteri and his wife Kelly have been pinpointed as its buyers.

Last month the casino operator Crown Resorts announced the $60 million sale of two floors within its luxury Sydney development to James Packer.
