Frequently asked questions on the Martin Place North Over Station Development

The Martin Place North Over Station Development Stage 2 application seeks approval for the construction and use of a 39-storey (plus rooftop plant) commercial tower above the northern entrance of the new Martin Place Metro Station providing:

  • 75,498m² Gross Floor Area (GFA) including 1,017m² for retail use and 74,481m² for office use 
  • New connections between the proposed podium and the existing 50 Martin Place building 
  • Signage zones for building identification
  • Vehicle loading, bicycle parking and end-of-trip and service facilities for both over station development at the north and south site 
  • Works to integrate with the Station design, including use and fit-out of over station development areas within the station building envelope for plant, services, end of trip facilities, retail and office spaces.

In March 2018, the Minister for Planning approved the Stage 1 State Significant Development (SSD) application for two Over Station Developments (OSD) at the northern and southern ends of the precinct.


In February 2019, the Minister for Planning approved the ‘Stage 1 Amending DA’ to amend the concept for the Precinct, approving a larger building envelope for the South Site.


No change is proposed for the approved building envelope above the northern entrance as part of the Amending Concept Application which is undergoing a separate assessment.

The Precinct will be above the previously approved Martin Place metro station and have access points to the station.


Martin Place is one of six new stations for the Sydney Metro ‘City & Southwest’, which extends new metro rail from Chatswood, under Sydney Harbour, through the Sydney CBD to Bankstown.


Macquarie Group would deliver the Martin Place Metro station to the Government. Macquarie would not own or be involved in the station itself once operational.

The Department has published all submissions received from the community, council and government agencies on our Major Projects website.


Macquarie Group has prepared a formal Response to Submissions (RTS) report, which is also available to view on our Major Projects website.


The Department will assess the project, which includes consideration of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), all submissions and community feedback, and the RTS.
