Australian tech giant Atlassian plans to build a 40-storey timber skyscraper with a rooftop garden has the company’s new Sydney headquarters.
The 180-metre tower will be the tallest commercial hybrid timber building in the world and is due for completion in 2025. It will be part of a new the tech precinct adjacent to Central Station. Atlassian is the first anchor tenant to sign up to the precinct plan.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said Tech Central will rival Silicon Valley as the place to be.
“Atlassian is a great Australian success story and it’s very fitting for them to have their headquarters here in Sydney,” she said.
The Atlassian tower will sit above the station’s former Parcels Shed, which is currently a YHA hostel.
