The Ribbon Darling Harbour

The Ribbon is a new office, retail and entertainment complex set to transform Sydney‘s skyline and form an extraordinary new gateway to the western side of the city’s Central Business District. Named for the building’s undulating form that rises through two elevated roadways, The Ribbon has been developed by HASSELL for Australia’s largest privately owned development, construction and investment management company, Grocon.

Its organic, flowing shape appears to peel the surrounding roadways up and manipulate them into a built structure that is sympathetic to the change of scale between the high rise city to its west and Darling Harbour to its east. The 20 storey development will deliver modern new premises for the IMAX theatre, which currently occupies the site, and incorporates significant upgrades to the surrounding public realm. The design demonstrates a new scale of development that is redefining the character of the area and responds directly to its setting within a major entertainment, cultural, tourist and commercial precinct.

In addition to creating a spectacular waterfront experience, The Ribbon provides enhanced ground level activation, improved sightlines over the Harbour and strong and legible pedestrian links across Cockle Bay and from the Harbour through to Darling Quarter. It will form a critical link between the CBD and the new Sydney International Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment Precinct and the Barangaroo site currently under development.
