When the extension of the metro was announced in 2017, Foster + Partners won the contract to design several of the new stations. The tower at Pitt Street will rise above the north side of the station.

Ross Palmer, Foster + Partners’ senior partner, said: “The Pitt Street north development will reinforce and frame one of the key gateways to the city with a design that celebrates the rich architectural heritage of the precinct and heralds the future of Sydney’s next-generation midtown.”
