"National Award For Excellence (2003)" - Walsh Bay Redevelopment
The Walsh Bay Redevelopment comprised a large-scale mixed-use development on a sensitive maritime heritage site in Sydney's inner harbour.
Located on Sydney Harbour, Walsh Bay boasts dramatic views of the Harbour Bridge and Sydney’s other premier attractions. Created in 1997, Walsh Bay Partnership (WBP) is a joint venture project between two of Australia’s leading and most respected companies, Mirvac and Transfield.
The NSW Government entrusted WBP with the task of rejuvenating Walsh Bay and breathing new life into the rapidly deteriorating areas of the precinct including three of the five "finger" wharves, their connecting shore sheds, bridges, seven bond stores and several streets and vacant sites within the precinct. In essence, the redevelopment captures an exceptional balance between Walsh Bay's rich heritage, sympathetic contemporary design, and the vision to revitalise Walsh Bay as Australia's finest new residential address and to position Sydney as a world-renowned cultural city.
Renzo Tonin & Associates was responsible for the acoustic design of the project.
