Macquarie Group’s concept proposal for an integrated Sydney Metro Martin Place station development is on exhibition for community feedback.

 

The Department of Planning and Environment is keen to hear the community’s views on the proposal which seeks to build two commercial towers above the northern and southern entrances of the future Martin Place Metro Station including:

  • a new 40+ storey building at the northern end that will join with the existing Macquarie Group building at 50 Martin Place
  • a new 28+ storey building at the southern end
  • an all-weather pedestrian concourse connecting between the northern and Southern station entrances.

Marcus Ray, Deputy Secretary, Planning Services, said the local community always has an opportunity to share their views. 

 

“Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant must respond to the feedback we receive,” Mr Ray said. “It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.” 

 

Two other applications also relate to this proposed development.

 

A separate planning proposal will be considered to change the shape of the building to allow more floor space above 55 metres on the southern side of Martin Place, while still ensuring that Martin Place and Hyde Park receives enough sunlight. 

 

A request from Transport for NSW to modify the approved Sydney Metro Critical State Significant Infrastructure to accommodate the proposal will be also considered.

 

Macquarie Group’s concept proposal will be on exhibition until Friday, 30 June 2017. The other proposals will be placed on exhibition shortly.
