Located in the heart of Sydney, Pitt Street precinct is part of the Integrated Station Development being delivered as part of the Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project.
This mixed-used hub will deliver a range of uses like community facilities, apartments and green spaces, shops, restaurants and commercial office spaces in line with Sydney Metro’s goal to revitalise communities, transform places and make the nation’s only global city more liveable and connected.
“…a design that celebrates the rich architectural heritage of the precinct and heralds the future of Sydney’s next-generation midtown.”

Officially known as Parkline Place, the 37-storey Pitt Street North will be built above the northern entry to Pitt Street Station accommodating 49,100 square metres of premium commercial office and retail plaza.
The development takes the form of three different height blocks with views over the harbour, Hyde Park and Town Hall. Visitors to Parkline Place will be greeted by a triple-height entrance lobby within the podium and two mezzanine floors containing the shops, restaurants and cafes. The sandstone and bronze material palettes respond perfectly to the local heritage context and create a distinct appearance to the building.
We worked collaboratively with the project team to lead the mechanical services, electrical services, ICT services, security consulting, level 3 ASP design, fire detection services, specialist lighting design, NABERS modelling and automatic vehicle parking solutions.
The building has highly efficient mechanical systems including active chilled beams, PV panels on its roof, a high-performance façade that incorporates external shading that reduce the radiation that hits the glass, and maintains strong views.
