Mecone achieved development approval within four months for one of the most prominent and exciting new projects in Sydney CBD which is set to become a benchmark development.

Mecone lodged an application for this mixed-use tower including flagship retail at the lower levels with 199 residential apartments across 32 storeys. The application was subject to a competitive design process with multiple architects.

The development provides a unique transition between the modern aesthetics of the George Street façade and the heritage significance of York Street and contributes to the urban fabric of the locality by opening up a previously underutilised and rarely seen heritage courtyard.

Mecone was engaged to provide planning and project management services for Stage 2 Development Application Lodgement.

  • Due diligence studies and preliminary planning advice;
  • Liaison with Council;
  • Preparation of a detailed Statement of Environmental Effects to support the Stage 2 Development Application;
