CommBank Darling Square

Project Size
$113 million

The two CommBank Towers in Darling Harbour’s entertainment quarter are located near the International Convention Centre and across from the Chinese Gardens.

This area, from Harbour Street, bordering Chinatown to Darling Drive, alongside the back of the Powerhouse Museum, has recently been revitalised. Taking cues from bordering Chinatown, it has been designed to look like upmarket hawker-lane style eateries, similar to Spice Alley in neighbouring Chippendale.

The two CommBank towers, with a civil connector in between, have been rejuvenated with new lobby entries into both buildings, revised internal layouts and fit-outs, atrium stairs and a grandstand connection to accommodate 400-500 CommBank staff.

State-of-the-art bike storage and end-of-trip facilities encourage staff to leave their cars at home. While the outside areas boast a whole new public domain, including pagodas and seating and large greenery planter boxes.
The building is designed around connectivity, connecting people within the building through a large central atrium, and connecting tenants to the community outside through a full height, transparent ‘window’ to the outside precinct. At the ground plane, the seamless integration of the boulevard to the lobby space blurs building boundaries welcoming user engagement.

Staggered floor plates, an exposed lift shaft and offset cores support CommBank’s vision for a flexible, collaborative and teams based workplace environment offering interesting views and increased transparency across floors and the atrium.
