Frequently Asked Questions

Sydney Metro sought concept approval for a residential or office building above the southern entrance of the station, which includes;

  • 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 planning approval was granted for the Pitt Street Metro Station in January 2017.

The station will be part of the future Sydney Metro network, providing access across the network to the Sydney Central Business District.

Now that the concept SSD application is approved, separate application/s will be required for the detailed design and construction of the development.


These application/s will be exhibited and assessed by the Department. You will be invited to provide feedback on the application/s at that time.
