The Rocks, Sirius

The Sirius building is an apartment complex at The Rocks. It was designed by Tao Gofers in the Brutalist architectural style and built in 1979. This view is from the Sydney Harbour Bridge with Sydney Harbour in the distance. The complex was built to house public tenants and is notable for being the only high rise development in The Rocks.

  1. It certainly does evoke the brutalist style.

  2. A building we have noted over the years since we first saw it in the early 80s. Sadly as time went on it became very clear that most occupants did not have much respect for their home.

  3. How far back from the water's edge was this building built? Did it block the rest of the suburb's view of the water?

    1. It's across the road from the Sydney Harbour Bridge so doesn't block the views of too many but it was still a controversial development and still is.
