About the project

The former Sydney Water Site at 903 Bourke Street, Waterloo is the largest site in the Danks Street South Precinct on the fringe of Green Square. The Danks Street South Precinct includes the delivery of significant public open space, heritage retention, retail and residential development to the greater Green Square locality. Mecone was engaged by Dahua to manage the final stages of the Danks Street South Precinct Planning Proposal and successfully resolved several complexities within the Precinct to ultimately gain the support of Council including preparation of a Site Specific DCP and VPA. Mecone also managed two separate Competitive Design Processes (Design Competitions) over the site to satisfy the LEP and deliver a built form outcome for the site that exhibits design excellence. An early works development application and subsequent consolidated detailed design development application were submitted over the site for 6 x buildings comprising 376 apartments and 2,800m2 of commercial/retail GFA.
