Mecone has been working with Coronation to deliver Shepherd Street, Liverpool as a high-quality mixed-use precinct, with excellent connectivity to the Liverpool City Centre, and improved access to the natural beauty of the Georges River. The project aligns with Council’s vision for a River City and ensures the adaptive re-use of the existing vacant heritage building into a thriving local centre. As part of this work, Mecone has undertaken both strategic and statutory planning services, including successfully preparing and managing a Planning Proposal across the precinct and multiple development applications.

The approved controls for the precinct will enable:

  • Approximately 1,300 residential dwellings across the 3.1 hectare area;
  • Adaptive re-use of the heritage listed ‘Challenge Woollen Mills’ building as a local neighbourhood centre with food and beverage retail; and
  • Significant local infrastructure upgrades including a boardwalk adjacent the Georges River frontage and local public domain upgrades.

The site is located at the edge of the Liverpool City Centre, directly to the west of the Georges River and is part of a larger urban renewal of the local precinct.

Scope of Works

Mecone is engaged to undertake planning and development advisory services for the strategic review and rezoning of the site. Scope of works include:

  • Strategic Assessment and Preliminary feasibility;
  • Preparation of a Vision Statement for the Georges River Precinct;
  • Negotiation with Council officers and presentation to Councillors;
  • Preparation of multiple Planning Proposals;
  • Preparation of Voluntary Planning Agreement letters of offer;
  • Preparation of Draft Development Control Plans;
  • Lodgement of the Planning Proposals and ongoing liaison with Council officers and the Department of Planning and Environment; and
  • Submissions to Transport for NSW on the potential Bankstown to Liverpool Metro Extension.
