Text description provided by the architects. Sugar Dock provides 132 residential units, associated communal open space and underground car parking. The design of the development seeks to complement and respond to its urban context characterized by its relationship to large scale elements such as the Harbour, the working dockyards, silos and the Anzac Bridge as well as the immediate topography and the streetscape of Jacksons Landing.

The tower consists of a series of glass residential apartments enclosed and anchored by two precast shells combining the visual language of the new development with that of the old Pyrmont. Within the glass form, apartments are turned away from their primary boundary towards the view and optimal orientation. A podium element grounds the tower’s masonry walls and reinforces the sandstone cliff-like Bowman Street alignment. Apartments along Bowman Street have been articulated to read as a series of houses inserted into the cliff face. They have an intimate character with their connection to the park and are restricted in height allowing clearer views through site views from Distillery Hill and from the communal open space.

The success of this development is reflected by the satisfaction of the client and apartment owners. During the GFC, sales continued ensuring the projects viability.
