A new landmark building is due to be built above the future Pitt Street Station as the New South Wales Government approves the construction of a new commercial tower as part of the Sydney Metro development. 

The new 39-storey Pitt Street North commercial office tower is going to be integrated with the Sydney Metro station, providing a connected hub of public transport, offices and shops. 

“The Pitt Street North development will provide nearly 55,000 square metres of commercial and retail space, creating new places for office workers, commuters, visitors and CBD residents. 

“As life starts to return to normal, we want to create new and exciting places to draw people back into the CBD whilst boosting the economy at the same time,” Minister for Planning and Public Spaces Rob Stokes said.

Pitt Street North is expected to create up to 620 construction jobs and approximately 4,000 operational jobs once the building is completed. 

The delivery of Metro stations across Sydney provides an opportunity to develop new hubs and precincts. 

“The Sydney Metro City and South-west mega project is not only changing the city below ground, it's transforming the city skyline. 

“We will soon have 31 stations and 66 kilometres of new metro rail moving people all the way from Rouse Hill to Bankstown, via Sydney CBD. At the same time it's unlocking the city's potential on the global scale and opening up new opportunities,” Minister for Transport Andrew Constance said.

  • New bike parking on Park and Bathurst streets 
  • Existing bus stop close to the station retained on Park and Castlereagh streets 
  • Existing taxi bays close to the station retained on Castlereagh and Pitt streets 
  • Wayfinding signage and metro information will be provided 
  • Enhancement of pedestrian infrastructure around the station will be refined in consultation with Transport for NSW and City of Sydney Council
