The Star Consortium have unveiled their design for the future 6-star hotel which will expand The Star Sydney’s entertainment offering. The winner was announced to be FMJT & could very well be known as Sydney’s Cactus tower by it’s unique shape.
Characteristics of The Star Casino 6 Star Ritz-Carlton Hotel:
|Location:||80 Pyrmont St, Pyrmont, NSW, 2009|
|Height of Building:||228m High|

It is the first skyscraper to be built in Pyrmont, which is one suburb away from the CBD and can be accessed by the inner-west light rail & is a short walk from Darling Harbour.
The Star is potentially ramping up their entertainment offering as a competing casino development across the harbour in Barangaroo called the Crown Casino Sydney in now under construction & it will compete directly with The Star Sydney for the gaming market in Sydney for both domestic & international visitors.
This spectacular tower will be 228m tall which will be almost a full 200m taller than any other building in Pyrmont. It will be interesting to see if more building’s in the suburb rise after this tower or if this is a once of ‘landmark’development for the suburb.
There will be a total of 150 apartments in the building, along with 220 hotel suites to accompany the apartments for guests. This will be a 6-Star hotel.
The design is relatively unique for Sydney standard’s & will make a bold statement on the skyline.
This is by far FMJT’s most unique design that they have unveiled for a Sydney development.
It will turn this development into an instantly recognisable building on the Sydney skyline.
The total investment in The Star Ritz-Carlton is expected to be $500 Million AUD making it one of the biggest developments in the country.
It is expected that the building will be completed by the year 2020.
