Western Sydney’s tallest residential building reaches its apex

November 30, 2016 by  

The tallest residential building in Western Sydney is now located in Liverpool, New South Wales .

The major development, known as Skyhaus, has been built on the corner of Mill Road and Macquarie Street.

Construction work finished recently on the 31st floor, which now provides view across the Western Sydney landscape, according to Nick Andriotakis of Lateral Estates.

The company director said with the project’s stage one construction phase coming to an end, the attention will be placed on the interior fit-out of all 439 apartments and its list of resort style facilities, which will incorporate a large outdoor pool and barbecue area.

Locals can also expect to see future brochures, flyers, and signs advertising retail outlets which have been earmarked for inclusion on the building’s ground floor.

The project also provides for another building to be established next door, which will feature a five-storey podium joining the two developments.

As work wound-up on the 31st floor, Lateral Estate conducted a topping out ceremony involving the placement of an olive tree on the building’s highest level.

According to Andriotakis, the tree planting mimics similar ceremonies carried out in Northern Europe but using a pine tree instead of the olive tree.

He said eventually the olive tree will be planted within Skyhaus’ extensive landscaped grounds, which will also feature community amenities and facilities once complete.
