Sydney’s skyline plays host to incredible progress

Tower Crane 1 successfully installed at City Tattersalls Club Redevelopment.

First Sponsor, ICD Property, Deloitte PDS and RCC recently celebrated the completion of a major milestone at the City Tattersalls Club Redevelopment – the successful installation of Tower Crane 1 (Favelle Favco M630D).

This is an incredible achievement by the entire City Tattersalls Club Redevelopment team, who have been diligently planning and preparing for this moment for 3-months.

50+ traffic controllers and 12 highly skilled Marr Contracting riggers covered shifts over the weekend, with the delivery and installation requiring a full street closure of Pitt Street and a partial road closure of Market Street for 48-hours. All roads were cleared, cleaned at re-opened to the public just after 8:00pm on Sunday 2 July 2023.

Tower Crane 1 was delivered in segments and installed by a 400-tonne mobile crane positioned on the street. We are immensely grateful for the support from the NSW Police, who worked alongside our project team to ensure that over 50,000 pedestrians safely passed the installation.

At 32m high and with a 55m boom, Tower Crane 1 is an impressive feature – with a maximum lifting capacity of 25 tonnes, it will enable a safe, effective, and efficient demolition of the non-heritage components of the redevelopment.

Elliot Hicks, Construction Manager, reflected on the milestone, “The successful installation of Tower Crane 1 will pave the way for significant works over the coming 12-months, and is the first of three tower cranes that will be installed at the City Tattersalls Club Redevelopment. We are cognisant of the clubhouse’s 127-year history – the importance of this massive undertaking is not lost on us. We look forward to working with First Sponsor ICD Property and Deloitte PDS to ensure the success of this landmark project.”

A big thanks to all our trade partners – your collaboration, professionalism and attention-to-detail was second-to-none. Once complete, the redevelopment will breathe new life into the Club – creating a mixed-use destination encompassing retail, dining, event spaces and carefully curated guest rooms and residences in a 50-storey tower.
