Proposal for Australian Technology Park redevelopment on display
A proposal to redevelop the Australian Technology Park in Sydney into three mixed-use buildings has been put on exhibition today.
New South Wales’ Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) is calling for community feedback on the proposal, which involves the construction of three buildings, ranging from four to nine storeys, at the Eveleigh site.
A consortium led by Mirvac Group acquired the Australian Technology Park from Urban Growth NSW Development Corp for $263 million in November 2015. Mirvac became the developer, builder and long-term owner of the precinct through the acquisition.
The new buildings being proposed include retail, commercial, community space, child care uses, a gym and above ground parking. In addition, the project would involve site preparation works, landscaping, road and public domain works throughout the precinct, and expansion of infrastructure and utilities where required.
A DP&E spokesman said the local community always had an opportunity to share their views.
“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive and this is taken into consideration when we develop our recommendations,” the spokesperson said.
“It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.”
