Elizabeth St

Project overview

PDNSW sought a long-term government office accommodation lease within the Southern Sydney CBD for a number of tenant agencies, as well as a dedicated whole-of-government touchdown space.

231 Elizabeth Street has had a major base building refurbishment to deliver a modern and flexible workplace to suit the occupant agencies' operational requirements for years to come.

Project objectives

Key objectives of the project include:

  • delivery of a modern, efficient, flexible and sustainable A-grade office workplace
  • government workplace consolidation
  • ability to adapt to machinery of government changes


231 Elizabeth Street delivers a state-of-the-art, dynamic, technology-enabled and flexible workplace that will inspire employees to deliver high-quality service for the people of New South Wales.

Floor plates are large, with interconnecting stairs creating vertical villages.
