100 Mount Street sets a new benchmark for North Sydney

Dexus is celebrating the opening of 100 Mount Street, an elegant 35-storey glass-enclosed tower set to transform North Sydney with the addition of a vibrant community offering quality office, dining and retail spaces in the heart of the CBD.

Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM), a leading global design firm, and Architectus, one of Australia’s top-tier architecture firms, 100 Mount is evocative of SOMs design for the John Hancock Center in Chicago.

“100 Mount is an iconic, centre for commerce in North Sydney’s growing CBD that sets a new benchmark for workplace design, sustainability features and public amenity,” said Paul Oates, Dexus Head of Development.

100 Mount is a building with the community in mind. At the ground level, the lobby comes to life with artwork created by internationally renowned photographer, Tamara Dean, featuring a connection to the local environment through a series of moving images showcasing the natural and built environments of Sydney’s north shore.

A vibrant new dining experience will be offered by Italian inspired Glorietta Restaurant while its sibling, Glory Days, provides a lobby café experience.

From the landscaped public plaza, cascading steps and inclined pathways allow visitors to access the street level. A pedestrian pathway bisects the site to connect the building to nearby public transport.

100 Mount includes a band of retail storefronts along Walker Street, with street level activity continuing around the corner of Mount Street and into the through-site link. Kingswood Coffee will offer a hole-in-the-wall café on the prominent corner of Mount and Spring Streets.

The street level includes new vehicle entry to Walker Street, effectively removing more than 100 cars from the Spring Street lane network and improving pedestrian access in North Sydney.

Throughout construction, a local partnership program between Laing O’Rourke, Dexus and local girls’ secondary school, Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College provided students with on-site work experience in the construction and engineering industries. The program’s aim was to inspire the next generation of women to pursue careers in engineering or construction, while also encouraging greater gender balance in the property sector.

100 Mount is owned by Dexus and Dexus Wholesale Property Fund. The building was developed by Dexus in collaboration with builder, Laing O’Rourke.
