2B West Street, Lewisham


The redevelopment of the site proposes a seniors living development with a total of 159 Independent Living Units (ILUs) and 160 Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF) beds. The site is conveniently located within close proximity to Lewisham Train Station, Petersham Park and Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre and a number of shops and services along Parramatta Road. The site has a number of heritage listed buildings including the Anne Walsh and Novitiate buildings which are to be adaptively reused as seniors living accommodation. The proposal will include a new part ILU, part RACF building which has three building envelopes being 13 storeys (5 storey podium), 11.5 storeys (5 storey podium) and 6 storeys. The new built form will be sensitive to the heritage items and will respond to the street edge.
