50 Martin Place, Sydney

Opened in 1928, 50 Martin Place was Sydney’s tallest building at the time at 12 storeys high. In 2014 it was transformed into Macquarie’s global headquarters. The historical building has a modern iconic orange staircase and open atrium. Its onsite café offers a place for our employees to meet, encouraging teamwork, cross group collaboration and our innovative and entrepreneurial culture.

Shelley Street, Sydney

Home to our retail bank, Shelley Street, Sydney features an innovative external ‘diagrid’ structure, which eliminates the need for perimeter columns and maximises the internal floor space.
