Commercial construction at Barangaroo continues
The development of the Barangaroo commercial site is continuing, with the retaining wall for the basement of the south-side nearing completion.
As part of the ongoing works, a call has been issued for major construction companies to submit tenders for the new projects to take place at Headland Park.
A kilometre-long foreshore is to be built from 5,000 tonnes of sandstone blocks - some of which could be retrieved from the nearby area.
Large-scale excavations will need to be undertaken, with an 18 metre-high parkway set to require the movement of approximately 210,000 cubic metres of soil.
From there the development is set to be be covered with 20,000 square metres of turf and greenery - including 2,212 shrubs and 675 trees in addition to a 70,000 other plants.
Meanwhile the Headland Park site will also need extensive preparations to make way for the commercial property aspect of the design - with work yet to begin on a 300-space underground car park.
While construction on the main towers has yet to be actioned, activities on the site will start to focus on the future outfitting needs that are to form the base of these iconic harbor-side buildings.
