Horizon Apartment - The Horizon in Sydney


The Horizon Apartment, known also as just The Horizon, is a skyscraper apartment building located in 184 Forbes Street Darlinghurst in Sydney, Australia. It is between historic Liverpool and Williams Street in Sydney.

The construction of the Horizon Apartment is centered on getting the most out of Sydney’s panoramic view including the Opera House and Harbour Bridge.


The 43 storey skyscraper built with offsite, pre-stressed concrete was designed by Austrian-Australian architect Harry Seidler and Associates and was built to house 260 apartments with 32,000 meters square of

floor space. Construction of the Horizon Apartments started in 1990

and completed in 1998 by Grollo Constructions, a Melbourne based construction company. 


There was some controversy involving the Horizon Apartment when it

was completed in 1998. Because of its height, it effectively

overshadowed other surrounding buildings.
