Skyhomes Penthouses(10)

Inside the $140 Million Penthouse that is Australia’s Most Expensive Home

The skyline of Sydney is changing. One Sydney Harbour will add a complex of 808 apartments spread through three towers as a part of the urban renewal precinct of Barangaroo and will rise alongside the International Towers Sydney and Crown Sydney. The kicker? The penthouse apartment was recently sold for $140 million, claiming the title of Australia’s most expensive home.

The three towers that make up One Sydney Harbor will stand at different heights. The 72-storey building will hold 317 apartments, the 68-storey building will have 322, and the smaller 30 story building will make up the rest. “Luxury is often confused with opulence,” says Daniel Goldberg, the founder of the State of Craft who will provide the interior design for the buildings, which were designed by Pritzker award-winning architect Renzo Piano. Goldberg focused on creating a story in the design for One Sydney Harbor.

“Our approach to luxury is very much about craftsmanship, telling the story of curation, a sense of authenticity.” Piano also envisioned a more ethereal quality to the design of the buildings. “We immediately started to think about these buildings being like crystals, playing one to the other,” said Piano. “In this case, I think it’s very much about this, about making something that tells the essence of this city that is about sense of lightness, a sense of light, the sense of transparency.”

The buildings are under construction, but interest is already sky high. “Pleasingly, we are also seeing high levels of interest from both customer referrals and repeat purchasers who know Lendlease will deliver an exceptional product and a customer-centric experience at One Sydney Harbour,” reported Ben Christie, the Head of Residential at Lendlease, the company heading out the project.

“Sales to date include several large apartment purchases with some customers planning to amalgamate these into substantial homes.” One such amalgamation saw three penthouse and subpenthouse residences of the tallest building combining to create a three-storey apartment with 1,600 square metres of living space.
