Description

The redevelopment of the site proposes a mixed use development with ground floor retail and commercial (educational use) and 207 residential units above including 7.5% of affordable housing. The site is conveniently located within walking distance to Sydney’s CBD, Glebe, Broadway Shopping Centre and a number of bus, light rail and train services.

The development will activate the Wentworth Park Road and Bay Street frontages and provides a through-site link for community social interaction. The development will create high-quality residential accommodation which are primarily north-facing and enjoy pleasant views of Wentworth Park (opposite), the city skyline, Glebe and Pyrmont Bridge.

Scope of Works

Mecone has been involved in a number of urban planning services which have included:

  • Preparing a planning proposal to rezone the site from industrial to B4 mixed use;
  • Preparing draft Local Environmental Plan and Development Control Plan site-specific controls for the site;
  • Assisting with the preparation of a Voluntary Planning Agreement;
  • Assisting with the Competitive Design Alternatives Process to achieve design excellence for the site, which included preparing relevant reports, liaising with architects and panel members and chairing meetings; and 
  • Assisting with the Statement of Environmental Effects approval process of the Development Application through the Central Sydney Planning Committee.
