Would be great if something was done with it. It's not a very nice stretch of road there with the XXXX factory across the road from it...

Herring Road Urban Activation Precinct is finally on exhibition. Centred on Macquarie University Station in Macquarie Park, it is one of the eight initial UAPs to be announced by the NSW Government last year.

The UAP program aims to deliver 30,000 new homes in close proximity to jobs and public transport. The Herring Road UAP will deliver 5,400 new homes over the next ~20 years.

It is part of a push to deliver 8,400 new homes in the broader Macquarie Park precinct. Herring Road will be serviced by the NWRL (Stage 1 of the future Sydney Rapid Transit network), which will see over 40,000 new homes delivered between Rouse Hill and Chatswood by 2031.

The plans propose 3 x 100m+ towers up to 120m in height. Pics from upwards in the NSW sub forum.

Uses and activities

community facilities and open space

o a quality medium to high density urban community with up to 5,400 new homes by 2031

o residential areas linked to public transport, the shopping centre and open space

o active uses along Herring Road including outdoor dining

the precinct’s key activity streets and precinct entry points defined with taller buildings between 45m
and 120m (14-34 storeys)


o mixed uses that will result in a range of building types and activities

Herring Road as the key activity spine connecting the train station, bus interchange, shopping centre,
university and residential areas

o improved Herring Road intersections, including replacement of the Ivanhoe Place and Dunmore Lang
College roundabout with a signalised crossing

Depending on future market demand, it is estimated that the precinct could deliver 2,000-2,400 new
homes by 2021 rising to 4,500-5,400 new homes by 2031.


If fully realised, at an average occupancy rate of 2.1 persons per dwelling, the local residential population
would increase proportionately to 4,200-5,040 persons by 2021 and 9,450-11,340 persons in 2031.

I've pointed it out the NSW forums that North Ryde will resemble a mini city. I think it also turns the area into a true regional centre for Sydney with an excellent mix of commercial, residential and educational facilities.

It is already on track to surpass North Sydney as the second largest CBD in the city, Macquarie Park's office space is growing at a significantly faster rate.

The most exciting thing I think is the clear effort to transform a car-dominated suburban business park into more of an active, integrated, mixed use CBD.

The same may occur (hopefully) at locations like Norwest when the NW rail link is complete too.

Once the Second Harbour Crossing is complete journey times from Chatswood to the city will be improved, and this will probably mean a direct ~20 minute journey between Mac Park and the city with at least 15 trains per hour in peak. This will make the place really very attractive to large companies and might ultimately lead to the demise of North Sydney as a business hub.

North Sydney will still have a future of some sort as a business centre because it will need to be the overflow for central Sydney. It may have to become more integrated with Sydney. Perhaps merging North Sydney into Sydney City Council might be the way to go.

With Sydney, I wonder what the figure would be for Pyrmont/Ultimo, Green Square & Sydney Airport because there would be a fair bit there.

From what I have found, Brisbane has approximately 1,000,000m2 in the city fringe.

Knight Frank provides office market reviews reasonably frequently and these often contain floor space info: Link

In their October 2013 report on the Brisbane Fringe market it states a total of 1,191,898m²

Since then 41 O'Connell Terrace (7,104m²) and 757 Ann Street (7,815m²) have been completed while BoQ will be moving into their new HQ later this year adding a further 23,420m² to the Brisbane Fringe market and taking it to a total of around 1,230,237m² by the end of 2014.

Thanks. I didn't know exactly where to look.

Looks like Brisbane is sitting about half the supply of Melbourne, which makes sense as the city population is also about half the size.

I think from memory in West Perth there is about 500,000 square meters of office space in addition to the CBD and I think Herdsman is about 100K.
