Software giant Atlassian aims to “turbo-charge” Australia’s tech economy with the help of a new architecturally progressive precinct at Central Station in Sydney. The NYSE-listed company unveiled plans today for its new headquarters to become the world’s tallest hybrid timber building, concocted by the same architecture firm that designed Uber’s headquarters in San Francisco. Atlassian is spearheading the project as part of the NSW Government’s plan to build a new tech precinct attracting 25,000 workers.

Construction of the 40-storey building is expected to generate 2,500 jobs during construction, and as the anchor tenant Atlassian plans to have 4,000 staff in its HQ once complete in 2025. Designed by New York-based architects SHoP with Australian practice BVN as the design team, the sleek timber tower is blended with a glass and steel facade, creating a honeycomb-like effect interwoven with large planted terraces. The project has plenty of natural ventilation and will feature solar panels in the vertical facades to generate green power on site.
