The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is calling for community feedback on plans for the construction and operation of a 39-storey residential tower above the southern entry to the new Sydney Metro Pitt Street Station in the Sydney CBD.
The Department’s Executive Director of Key Sites and Industry Assessments, Anthea Sargeant, said community input is a vital part of the assessment process and encouraged everyone to have their say on the Modification Application to the approved Stage 1 Concept and the Stage 2 State Significant Development (SSD) Application.
“If approved, the new 39-storey residential tower and retail space will be constructed above the station’s south entrance,” Ms Sargeant said.
“Our role is to assess the applications in consultation with the local community, government agencies and stakeholders so we are encouraging the community to share their views on this over station residential project.”
The Stage 1 Modification Application seeks consent to change the land use to include retail and to allow for overhang beyond the approved Building Envelope.
Oxford Properties is also seeking approval for the Stage 2 detailed design and construction of the building within the proposed modified building envelope.
“After the exhibitions close for both the Stage 1 Concept Modification and the Stage 2 SSD, the Department will review all community submissions received, along with feedback from other government agencies and councils as part of its rigorous assessment process.”
The community is invited to have their say on both projects by Wednesday 1 July 2020.
