The latest prospective development looking to add to the nation's largest office market landed at planning earlier this month.

City of Sydney has fielded a request to add a slim 13 storey office building at 4-6 York Street, just south of Wynyard Station which is itself subject to a substantial commercial development. The $29 million York Street development bid also includes alterations and refurbishments to the adjoining 341 George Street building. 

In vogue design practice Candalepas Associates was tasked with design duties by development entity 6 York Street Pty Ltd which is controlled by NGI Investments.

Candalepas Associates' designs intentions sees the tight 611 square metre site which is now an at grade car park and single storey building adorned with a tower spanning 55.4 metres. Owing to the site's small footprint, ground floor amenities within the scheme are contained to 143 square metre cafe/bar alongside lobby requirements.

Thereafter "the new building will be physically connected to the existing building at 341 George Street, and there will be access between most floors of the two buildings which will necessitate some alterations to the existing building." A typical floorplate within the new addition spans 500 square metres, with a project Gross Floor Area of 6,128 square metres.

Further design detail for the York Street proposal is outlined on ArchitectureAU.

The combined size of the York and George Street buildings will still see the overall development at the lower end of the size scale relative the healthy number of substantial office towers proposed and in development through Sydney's core.

Perhaps most noteworthy is AMP's Quay Quarter Sydney project designed by 3XN. The 200 metre redevelopment of AMP's existing headquarters has just received its first tower crane that will in part facilitate the delivery of a new 102,000 head office for the financial services company.

It along with 55,500 square metre Circular Quay Tower at 182 George Street, 60 Martin Place and the aforementioned 59,000 square metre Wynyard Place are among Sydney's largest office developments under construction.

Further developments in their infancy include the approximately 40,000 square metre Metro Martin Place development.
