Sydney Metro have awarded Lendlease the contract to deliver the Victoria Cross Metro station and Over Station Development (OSD), including a building envelope for a commercial development above the station’s southern entrance at the intersection of Miller and Berry Streets, new retail spaces and improvements to the public domain.


In October 2019, as a result of ongoing design development between Lendlease and Sydney Metro, Lendlease have submitted a modification application to amend the approved Stage 1 SSD, seeking: 

  • a reduction in the massing and overall dimensions of the cantilever over the Miller Street special area setback
  • the relocation of building massing from the low-rise portions to the high-rise portion of the envelope
  • a reduction in the Berry Street setback from 5 metres to 4.5 metres
  • an increase in the maximum gross floor area from 60,000m2 to 61,500m2


Consultation and feedback

The modification application was on exhibition until 28 November 2019.


The Department welcomed feedback from the community, government agencies and other stakeholders during the public exhibition period. This feedback will be taken into consideration as part of the assessment.


All project documents for the modification application received by the Department to date are available on our Major Projects website.


Next steps

Following the exhibition, the Department will consider all community submissions received, along with feedback from other government agencies and councils, as part of the assessment process.


Approved SSD application

In December 2018, the Minister for Planning approved the Stage 1 SSD application for the Victoria Cross Over Station Development, which included:

  • a maximum building envelope, including street-wall and setbacks
  • a maximum building height of 168 metres, providing approximately 42 storeys for the high-rise portion and 13 storeys (55 metres) for the lower-rise eastern portion
  • a maximum gross floor area of 60,000 square metres, excluding station floorspace
  • basement car parking for a maximum of 150 spaces.
