A 39-storey tower in Sydney’s Inner West has topped out four months ahead of schedule, taking it one step closer to becoming the tallest building in the Rhodes skyline
The exciting $2 billion project, at 14-22 Walker Street, is part of the Rhodes Central precinct, an exciting waterside living development in the heart of one of Sydney’s most rapidly evolving areas.
Developers The Billbergia Group are behind the plans for the ambitious tower which will feature an extraordinary golden heliostat that crowns the top of the building, aiming to reflect light onto a shadowed nearby square.
Rick Graf, Development Director at Billbergia, said: “It is an iconic building with high-quality build and finishes, by a trusted developer & builder.”

Architects SJB, Inhabit and Samaras Engineering have designed the unique 20-metre high heliostat which will take the total height of the tower past the 145-metre mark.
The heliostat tower will be accompanied by another 25-storey building, with both towers sitting above a 12,000 sqm shopping centre as part of the first stage of the project.
An open date for early 2021 has been set for the two towers that make up stage one of the development, with the construction of the 548 apartments currently keeping over 4,500 construction workers busy.
Plans for three more towers and a $70 million community recreation centre make up the Rhodes Central precinct masterplan which is set to transform the skyline of Western Sydney.
