Silk Display Suite, Pyrmont
In 2008 Vivas Lend Lease commissioned CJ Duncan to build what may well be the most isolated and highly finished ‘temporary’ project in the company’s history. In order to take advantage of magnificent harbour views, Vivas Lend Lease selected an isolated sandstone escarpment in Pyrmont as the stunning location for its ‘Silk’ display apartment.
Whilst picturesque, access to the site was limited to a set of external stairs and a small lift, making materials handling and site establishment very challenging.
Regardless of these limitations CJ Duncan hastily delivered this highly finished project in order to meet Vivas Lend Lease’s ambitious launch date for ‘Silk’, a $150 million, 18 storey harbour-side apartment tower at Jacksons Landing, Pyrmont. CJ Duncan worked hard to deliver this project for a cost effective sum given the fact that this project, whilst being a highly finished example of a multi-million dollar apartment, would ultimately be dismantled and the site converted to a public park.
