About the project

The proposal will create a high quality gateway/landmark building to the corner of O’Riordan Street and Bourke Road when travelling into Sydney from the Sydney Airport. The site is located within the Mascot Station Precinct and is required to demonstrate design excellence. The site has been designed by a highly reputable Architect and was thoroughly supported by the Design Review Panel. The DA was formally approved by the Sydney East Planning Panel in December 2019. The subject site benefits from a number of transport services including the domestic and internal Airport, hotel airport shuttle, Mascot train station and bus services infront of the site. The site is highly restricted given the Airport Rail Tunnel Corridors runs underneath Bourke Road, is located within the Sydney Airport Obstacle Limitation Surface and Procedures for Air Navigation Services Operation Surfaces, it adjoins a sewer line owned by Sydney Water and fronts two classified roads. Concurrence will be required by the RMS and Sydney Trains under the Infrastructure SEPP. Mecone have provided a number of urban planning services for the redevelopment, including:

  • Preparing a Due Diligence Report which outlined the key planning controls for the site
  • Assisting with the Pre-Development Application process and the preparation of a Pre-Development Application Report
  • Attendance at the Design Review Panel meetings
  • Preparing a Statement of Environmental Effects for the Development Application
  • Coordination with Council and the Planning Panel to obtain Development Consent.
