Update: July 30th 2019
Crown Sydney in Barangaroo has come leaps and bounds since our last update here at Build Sydney News. It is approximately up to 190m at the core of the tower, as can be viewed by a render from CULWULLA of the SkyscraperCity forums.
Here is an elevation image of the construction with heights and dates as recorded by CULWULLA:
The podium and upper deck are now almost topped out as can be viewed by the images of the construction progress.
The skyscraper is really beginning to make an impact on the Sydney skyline by really beefing it up when looking at the CBD as you drive in from the harbour bridge and also it is very noticeable when driving into the city via the Anzac Bridge.
The glass on the tower has turned out to look like an absolute treat, there are no other towers in Sydney quite at the level of the Crown Sydney skyscraper, with the exception of the Barangaroo International towers located directly next to the Crown tower.
It is evident that the construction of the whole Barangaroo South precinct is now well underway with preparation works for the One Sydney Harbour development in Barangaroo right next to the Crown Sydney tower being under site preparation.
The construction schedule looks to be on track and we can anticipate a finish somewhere in the year 2021.

This Amazing tower will set a new standard for the Sydney CBD. The tower will provide spectacular city views to the Sydney & around the harbour, especially out towards to new Barangaroo point parkland, the Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The Crown Casinos Residential component is expected to host the Country’s most expensive penthouse, a $100,000,000 AUD penthouse on the very top floor which will smash the previous high of $25,000,000 at Australia 108 in Melbourne’s Southbank district.
This quality of this development will be unmatched by any other development. Wilkinson Eyre were chosen as the Architects which are truly one of the best in the world. This will be the most expensive single building in Australia.
This development has been allowed to break the Sydney CBD height limit of 243m RL by allowing the development to go almost 30m higher than allowed under current regulations. It will be the dominant building on the Sydney skyline in years to come.
This single building will turn Barangaroo from a residential/commercial hub into a full blown destination for Sydney residents.
