Sydney's city skyline is set to welcome a dazzling new addition, as work officially kicks off on a 50-storey glass skyscraper they're calling Quay Quarter Tower.

The tower, which will be located at 50 Bridge Street, is part of a $2.7 billion development AMP Capital has planned for a 11,000-square-metre Quay Quarter Sydney precinct, just near Circular Quay. The precinct will be made up of residential space, shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.

The building clocks in at a soaring 200-metres tall and is designed by Danish architects 3XN. And, if plans are anything to go by, it's set to be one impressive-looking tower, featuring five "shifting glass volumes" set on top of each other, with atrium space and some cracking views across the Harbour.

At the base of the tower, there'll be an urban green space and a 5000-square-metre lifestyle, services and food retail precinct. On top of that, it will be mostly office space. If all goes to plan, it's expected to be completed by late 2021.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Quay Quarter Tower is just part of an estimated $4.8 billion worth of projects currently being built around the CBD.
