5 Martin Place, Sydney

Base Building

The redevelopment of 5 Martin Place provides an extraordinary and complex construction of a cantilevered inverted 'L' shaped building over the iconic, heritage-listed Commonwealth Bank 'Money Box' Building, to offer a 19-level, modernised premium-grade building that retains its distinctive features, including sandstone facades, marble lobbies and interconnecting staircases.

The building redevelopment comprises over 31,000 sqm of premium-grade office space and approximately 2,500 sqm of ground level retail space. The redevelopment provides a unique premium commercial offering, with large central atrium, large floor plates and prime CBD location in the heart of Martin Place.

The building targeted a minimum 5 Star Green Star design rating and 5 Star NABERS rating.

Law firm Ashurst (formerly Blake Dawson) is committed to a 10-year lease as the anchor tenant.

  • Ceilings including Metal Pan

  • Speedpanel Walls
  • Vanity support frames
  • Skirtings
  • FF&E
  • Automatic sliding doors
  • Timber framed glazed doors to amenities
