Atlassian Central – World’s Tallest Timber Tower to be Built in Sydney, Australia


Obayashi, the Japanese general contractor, announced that it has been given the opportunity to develop the world’s tallest timber building in Sydney, Australia, a 182-meter sustainable skyscraper combining wood and other materials to accommodate Atlassian’s Sydney headquarters. 

Under the strict conditions of State Significant Development Application #10405, Atlassian Central’s construction and operation were approved. 

Construction is about to begin, and Dexus and Built Obayashi Joint Venture are making preparations. 

Obayashi intends to construct a 39-story Atlassian Central using renewable energy. 

World’s Tallest Timber Tower – Powered by Renewable Energy 

Construction has begun on the world’s tallest timber tower in Sydney, a joint venture by Construction firms from Japan and Australia.  

The 39-story Atlassian Central tower will be located in Sydney’s Tech Central innovation and technology district, adjacent to the Central rail station. A hotel and retail businesses will also be housed in the mixed-use tower, which has a floor area of 75,000 square meters. 

In comparison to a typical building project, the firms hope to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by at least 50% during construction. They also intend to run the tower entirely on renewable energy. 

A hybrid-timber building with steel frames and cross-laminated wood, or a wood panel product manufactured from glued layers of sawn lumber, will be found on the seventh story and upwards. 

According to the Japanese construction company, the product can be recycled and is lighter, and emits less CO2 during production than concrete. It can also be repurposed for various purposes. 

The two builders indicated that the basement and the floors below the seventh story will be made of reinforced concrete. 

Australian real estate company Dexus is working on Obayashi’s joint venture with local building company Built to construct the tower, which is expected to be finished in 2026. 

Obayashi added that their organization aims to build a sustainable society by developing and promoting the use of recyclable resources such as lumber and wooden materials, adding that this will help with issues like achieving carbon neutrality and other social issues.

The integration of the Parcels Shed into public spaces and woven throughout the building design will protect and preserve Sydney’s past while also forming the backdrop for Sydney’s future. 

This structure promises to beyond star ratings and will be a game changer in terms of low-carbon construction, high comfort, and low energy consumption.

  • Construction has 50% less embodied carbon than a comparable conventionally constructed building 
  • 50% less energy consumption than a traditional building
