5 King St Project

At a height of almost 45 metres, 5 King Street (aka 25 King Street) will be the tallest engineered timber building in Australia and the tallest and largest engineered timber office building by gross floor area in the world. 

Developed and Constructed by Lendlease, the ground plus nine-storey tower includes three bespoke ground level retail tenancies.  

5 King Street will be built using a revolutionary building timber called cross laminated timber (CLT) and glulam (glue laminated timber) which has a structural strength akin to the traditionally used concrete and steel.
