87 Bay Street, Glebe


The redevelopment of the site proposes a mixed-use development with ground floor retail and commercial (education use) and 207 residential units above (with 19 affordable units). 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.

  • Preparing a planning proposal to rezone the site from industrial to B4 mixed-use;

  • 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;
  • Preparing a Statement of Environmental Effects for a Development Application; and
