The Sirius public housing block was designed by architect Tao Gofers in the 1970s. It has 79 apartments as well as communal areas including a lounge, library and roof terrace.
Each residence is housed within a concrete cube, with large windows giving residents unparalleled views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
The proposed redevelopment of the Sirus apartment block is part of a wider sell-off of public housing throughout the nearby Millers Point neighbourhood. Plans for the site include 250 new luxury apartments.
