In January 2017, the Pitt Street Metro Station was approved. The station will be part of the future Sydney Metro network, providing access across the network to the Sydney Central Business District.


Sydney Metro submitted two separate development applications seeking approval for the broad concept for Over Station Developments above the northern and southern entrances to the Pitt Street Metro Station. 


The Pitt Street South Over Station Development application seeks concept approval for a residential or office building above the southern entrance of the station including;

  • conceptual use of the over station development for either residential accommodation or office premises (one or the other, not both land uses)
  • a maximum building envelope for a podium and tower form with maximum building height up to approximately 35 residential storeys or approximately 30 office storeys and a podium height of approximately 8 storeys above ground
  • car parking for a maximum of 34 spaces across three levels of the podium.

The Concept Development Application does not seek consent for detailed designs or any construction work.


Pitt Street South concept approved


The Pitt Street South concept development application has been approved subject to conditions based on consultation with the local community, council and other agencies.


The Department carefully considered the community’s submissions, worked with council and took into account their feedback during the assessment process.


A full list of the conditions of consent is available on our Major Projects website.
