5 Martin Place occupies a highly prominent location at the corner of Martin Place and Pitt Street in Sydney’s CBD. Martin Place enjoys a rich history as a core financial precinct within Australia’s financial markets and is currently home to an array of financial groups.
The development has repositioned the existing asset by way of a major reconfiguration of the existing ‘heritage’ component, the construction of an additional nine levels of premium office accommodation and the restoration of the historic Rowe Street laneway.
The building provides approximately 33,860 sqm of NLA. Floor plates from the ground level to level 10 provide approx. 2,400 sqm (NLA), while new levels 11 to 19 each provide approx. 1,090 sqm (NLA).
The heritage component (ground level to level 10) is extensively modernised while retaining its distinctive features, including the sandstone facades, marble lobbies and interconnecting staircases. The original internal ‘light well’ has been reinstated to form a central atrium that rises from level 1 up through to level 11.
The building features a high level of environmental credentials including a 5 Star Green Star Office As Built v3 rating, a 5.5 Star NABERS Energy rating and a 4 Star NABERS Water rating. Provisions for tenant ‘end of trip’ facilities (bicycle storage, shower and lockers) are also included. The building was completed in 2015.
