Meanwhile...a couple of blocks east:

LACHLAN PRECINCT

EMBLEM

52-54 O'Dea Avenue - future Gadigal Av exten., Amelia St, Dyuralya Park/Square
Waterloo


Site screening went up a couple of weeks ago, the project is expected to get approval at this month's CSPC meeting so I guess the site is being readied for demolition, clearance and excavation.
Buildings in the background are the Vista Grande buildings along Amelia Street.

ROSEBERY

Revived from 2012 and lodged yesterday, a big but squat, multiple building project of 6 storeys - unless there is a Road to Damascus Moment in the council planning dept. It has the potential for 260+ apartments.


D/2016/106
12-22 Rothschild Avenue ROSEBERY NSW 2018
Stage 1 development for mixed use development
$93,975,824.00

D/2016/106
24 Rothschild Avenue ROSEBERY NSW 2018
Stage 1 development for mixed use development
$93,975,824.00


As far as I can figure it, the site of 12-22 Rothschild will be developed but the heritage listed (?) building at 24 will be retained and adapted. #24 has a long frontage to Cressy Street and runs to Mentmore Avenue.

http://development.cityofsydney.nsw....sp?tpk=1201098

Bit puzzled by re-notification over small changes as I thought the project was scheduled for approval by the CSPC in its meeting later this month.
Just making sure in advance, I guess.

Grimshaw and BVN reveal designs for high-rise Sydney school
BVN propose cluster of buildings for $110 million Zetland multi-res precinct


BVN Architecture have submitted an amended Development Application with the City of Sydney for a part 6, part 13-storey monolithic brick building for Rosebery, complete with undulating ridgelines and topped with a landscaped rooftop.

67-77 Epsom Road is a rectangular road locked site bound by Epson Road, Bunmarra Street and Magari Streets and Dalmeny Avenue in the town of Rosebery. As with the neighbouring towns of Zetland and Green Square, the precinct is undergoing transition from light industrial development to medium density residential building and as such is surrounded by existing low scale industrial and retail buildings.

inspo.JPG7.JPG

BVN’s proposal is for a stepped massed building with storey heights ranging from 6 storeys to the east to 13 storeys to the north-west corner of the site. They’ve adopted a simple architectural palette with rich brickwork detailing, including corbelling, hit-and-miss screens, rustication and varied joint treatments, which nods to the robust buildings that used to inhabit the area and can still be seen in some parts of inner Sydney.

The building wraps continuously in a ‘picture frame’ formation around the four streets it is bound by to form and internal courtyard. The Magari Street elevation hosts the only ‘ground to sky’ break in the building which offers clear views to the Park from the courtyard. It will contain 267 residential units, 49 services apartments, 17 ground floor retail tenancies and two levels of basement parking for 283 vehicles.

Projects & Discussion | GREEN SQUARE

I thought they were going to encase the new streets etc in Green Square in concrete to protect against the building works /damage?? Haven't seen any sign yet that this is going to occur??

Concrete might be a bit drastic. I understood they were going to bury Ebsworth Street with fill which would protect it while providing access to construction sites but would be easy to remove later. No sign of it yet. Perhaps they changed their mind - must admit I thought it was a bit daft anyway.

Ta Brizer. You know, for some reason I thought I read they were talking about concrete, and I thought, wow, that's different and wondered how they were going to do that..., so fill is a lot more understandable. Though, agree, is it really necessary? Yes, no sign of it yet, so did make me wonder as they seem to have hoarding and poles erected on Ebsworth Street now...

Check GSq Town Centre thread for a couple of recent pix of hoarding, etc., though it's hard to get a good pic espec. with the blue material on the perimeter fences.

EMERALD CITY

Wow, good to see some progression on this project.

Does anyone know why they would strip 4000 sqms of prime retail from the design? Pressure from the East Village owners to the council?

Also, I know this is abit far fetched but would anyone be able to predict the timeline of when Emerald City could be completed.

I know there's the DA approval process, build & construct period etc, but if someone were to have an educated guesstimate when would be for completion of this project?

I'm curious to know how the retail will work in Green Square. Would Emerald City be the main retail outlet for the future 50,000 workers & residents? I remember Green Sq had planned about 16000 sqms of retail but scattered throughout Green Sq & not concentrated in 1 spot.

Whether EMERALD CITY proceeds through the council planning process to completed construction only time will tell. It has been a long and chequered career spanning a decade or more.

The changes have nothing to do with East Village. Any adjustments relate to the commercial/retail area of the Town Centre & the economic viability of the project itself.

Emerald City is not part of the Town Centre area and its size & function challenged Council's conservative 'vision' and primary zoning for that site.

Around 2008 Gazcorp took the project to the Land & Environment Court as Council refused approval, primarily on the grounds that it was so big it threatened the viability of the Town Centre. Council had a point: the original proposal was a hulking great box of undistinguished design (put politely) and little sensitivity that proposed 5 levels of a large, full line Woolworths Supermarket (it has been trimmed back a bit in the latest DA), a Big W store, a big gym, a level of commercial offices, 30 or more smaller retail units of varying area and a 2 level carpark. Most of these have been deleted or decreased.

The L&E Court agreed with Council. Things went quiet for a few years, then in 2012 it emerged again with a smaller project and a vastly improved design by SJB Architects. With the requisite, pretty much traditional fiddling with details the project was APPROVED in late 2013. There was then some excitement in these parts when it was revealed that there were plans for 3 apartment towers on top of the centre.

Then it went quiet. Late last year I asked Cul if he'd heard anything about it but he hadn't.

December, 2015, this DA was prepared and is now on exhibition. It is essentially the same project as approved in 2013 just 'improved' though with some trimming of the scale, height and bulk of the building (details in earlier post). As it is a variation on an approved project this is a Stage 2 DA (I assume) so it shouldn't take the many months to get to approval stage that most projects require.
