In March 2018, the Minister for Planning approved the Stage 1 State Significant Development (SSD) application for the Sydney Metro Martin Place Precinct.
The unsolicited proposal from Macquarie Group included two commercial buildings (Over Station Developments) integrated with the previously approved Martin Place metro station. The proposed towers would be situated above the northern entrance (joining with the existing building at 50 Martin Place) and the southern entrance of the future station.
In May 2018, a site-specific amendment was made to the Sydney Local Environment Plan (LEP). The new planning provisions for the Martin Place Metro Precinct permitted a larger building envelope for the South Site.
Macquarie Group have now submitted a ‘Stage 1 Amending DA’ to amend the concept for the Precinct, addressing the new planning controls for the south site.
Public exhibition of the Stage 1 Amending DA closed on 19 September 2018. The Department has received Macquarie Group’s Response to Submissions (RtS) document, which is now publicly available on our Major Projects website.
