Thirdi Group is thrilled to be working closely with North Sydney Council on an exquisitely designed commercial precinct for North Sydney as part of their core strategy for the CBD.  

Together we are committed to serving the needs of the North Sydney community, its inhabitants, businesses and culture in creating a space that enhances the places that we work in, live in and love. 

The proposed project is set to produce 3000+ new jobs and deliver millions of dollars of investment, directly benefiting the local economy and social landscape. 

Thirdi has engaged some of Australia’s leading architects, planners and sustainability consultants and construction professionals to bring this vision to life and deliver a world class building we can all be proud of. 

We will be keeping communication channels open throughout the development process to ensure the needs of neighbours and other stakeholders are heard and understood.  

In the meantime, if you have any questions about our development application or Thirdi Group, please register your details below and our team will be in touch with you.


Critical to the success of any project is the long-term benefits it will deliver to its surrounding community. The creation of Blue & William will drive long last employment and social benefits to North Sydney as a whole. 

Below are a range of the key economic drivers that will be created as a result of Blue & William:
