The Ribbon

The RibbonPlanning approval for The Ribbon – a spectacular new office, retail and entertainment complex designed by HASSELL – has been granted to Australia’s largest privately owned development, construction and investment management company, Grocon.
The RibbonNamed for the building’s undulating form that rises through two elevated roadways, The Ribbon is set to transform Sydney’s skyline and form an extraordinary new gateway to the western side of the city’s Central Business District.
The RibbonThe design, which was approved with no conditions or alterations, appears to peel the surrounding roadways up and manipulate them into a built structure sympathetic to the change of scale between the high rise city to its west and Darling Harbour to its east.
The RibbonThe 20 storey development will deliver modern new premises for the IMAX theatre, which currently occupies the site, and incorporates significant upgrades to the surrounding public realm.
The RibbonHASSELL Principal Mark Loughnan said the approval demonstrates a new scale of development that is redefining the character of the area. “The design responds directly to its setting within a major entertainment, cultural, tourist and commercial precinct,” said Mark.
The Ribbon“It will create a spectacular waterfront experience and form a critical link between the CBD and the new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct and the Barangaroo site currently under development.” Source: HASSELL.
