Frequently asked questions on the Martin Place South Over Station Development

Macquarie Group have submitted two separate Stage 2 development applications seeking approval for the design, construction and operation of Over Station Developments (OSD) above the northern and southern entrances to the Martin Place Metro Station.

 

The Martin Place South Over Station Development Stage 2 application seeks approval for the construction and use of a 28 storey (plus rooftop plant) commercial tower with a nine storey podium above the southern entrance of the new Martin Place Metro Station providing:

  • 37,553m² Gross Floor Area including 1,222m² for retail use and 36,331m² for office use 
  • Signage zones for building identification
  • Vehicle loading and service facilities within the basement and shared use of facilities on the North Site
  • The use of bicycle parking and end of trip facilities located on the North 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.

 

The Martin Place South Over Station Development Stage 2 application seeks gross floor area and built forms consistent with the Stage 1 Amending DA.

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.
