The New South Wales government is planning two commercial towers to be built over the new rail station at Hunter Street, Sydney.

The two over-station towers will have a combined estimated value of about $103 million.

In detail:

  • A first tower of up to 58-storeys, with 84,300sq m of retail and commercial space
  • A second tower of 51 storeys and about 70,000sq m of retail and commercial space

Two state-heritage listings are within the site boundaries:

  • The former Skinners Family Hotel in George Street—a three-storey building designed in the Old Colonial Regency style by Henry Robertson, dating back to 1845.
  • The Tank Stream tunnel, a freshwater aqueduct dating from the late 18th century.

Both will be retained, and the Skinners Family Hotel incorporated into the new development.
