Harris Street, Ultimo, NSW
Client: University of Technology, Sydney
Architect: Nettleton Tribe
Project description: New, affordable, on-campus student accommodation was needed by UTS but with little available space. The result was a residential tower of 21 levels, providing 720 beds, constructed on top of an existing campus building, occupied throughout the entire construction phase.
Highgate’s role: Highgate has been managing the delivery of projects under the UTS City Campus Master Plan since 2010. The new student accommodation building was delivered 6 months ahead of schedule in July 2011, with significant savings for the University.
Completion date: 2011 (completed 6 months early)
