Bold plan to build new Sydney stadium suspended above Central station

Architects reveal design for 45,000-seat stadium over rail yards, but proposal meets with tepid government response

A new stadium for Sydney in the city centre and served by every major rail line, plus the chance to return Moore Park to parkland. It sounds like a utopian dream from an urban planner.

But architecture firm Bates Smart has produced just such a concept, which they have pitched to the NSW government: a 45,000-seat stadium over the platforms and adjacent rail yards at Central station instead of a new stadium at the site of the current Allianz stadium in Moore Park.

But despite the proposal’s merits it has been met with a tepid response from the New South Wales government.

A government spokesperson said any unsolicited proposal needed “to be evaluated under the appropriate guidelines”.

Bates Smart director Philip Vivian says the idea is entirely possible – a stadium is a relatively light structure, equivalent to a six-storey building. The firm has asked engineering company Arup about its concept and believes it is entirely feasible.

“It would involve building a podium over the stations – it’s a matter of creating land – then the cost of the stadium on top would be the same, he said.

The new stadium would be served directly by all of Sydney’s rail lines, buses and the light rail, while being close to dining precincts in Haymarket and Surry Hills.

“It would create a piece of the city that heals a big scar in its fabric,” Vivian said of the concept of building over the vast expanse of rail lines in Sydney’s Central station area.

“The Colosseum in Rome established the concept of the stadium as a public space embedded in the fabric of the city; a monumental piece of infrastructure for public spectacle. In modern times however, with the advent of the motor vehicle and the suburbs, stadiums became mono-functional objects, isolated on the periphery of the city and surrounded by car parking,” the Bates Smart brief says.

“Today a renaissance is under way, with stadiums once again being integrated into the city fabric and acting as catalysts of urban renewal,” it says.

But Bates Smart’s idea appears to have come too late to be given serious consideration by the NSW government.

Even though the government only announced its $1.5bn final decision on redeveloping Sydney’s two stadiums in late March, the firm met with resistance when it pitched it in May.

The government has already commenced a design competition for the $729m rebuild of Allianz stadium, which will be the first of the two Sydney stadiums to be redeveloped. The other is the ANZ stadium at Homebush, which was built for the 2000 Olympics.

The government says it will be announcing the winner in a month and has plans to begin the project before the state election in March next year.

However, the NSW government has been prepared to upend planning processes in the past, when it considered there were benefits to NSW.

Be better off putting a nice park in that area. Belmore and Alfred aren't exactly pretty.
Not like the area around the stadiums is lacking green space.

Also like how the render seems to assume that the carpark and NRL, Rugby Australia, Waratahs HQs etc go as well

As if Alan Jones and his buddies at the SCG Trust would ever let that happen.

ROFL that's hilarious. It's like they had a 150m diameter circle they had to fit in without encroaching on Prince Alfred Park and so, ploop, right on top of the station.

'Start-ups will scramble': Atlassian's new Sydney home a tech epicentre

By Esther Han
February 26, 2019 — 5.07pm

Twenty years ago, when Sydney locals Scott Farquhar and Michael Cannon-Brookes looked for their first office space, they chose some small rooms on Sydney’s Kent Street "purely" because it was cheap.

"There was no epicentre of technology in Sydney, no start-up ecosystem … we were surrounded by fashion designers and I wished they had bit of an impact on me," Mr Farquhar laughed, pointing at his T-shirt emblazoned with Atlassian’s "A" logo.

"It wasn’t until a few years later that we went to Silicon Valley and we saw the benefits that come from having an epicentre … we saw start-ups sitting next to the biggest technology companies."

Now, Atlassian, which has become one of the world's biggest software companies and turned the pair into multi-billionaires, is helping to create a new epicentre.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian on Tuesday, with Mr Farquhar, announced Atlassian would be an anchor tenant at the Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct in the Central-Eveleigh corridor.

She said with Atlassian's decision to move its global headquarters to Central-Eveleigh, dozens of start-ups would be "scrambling" to snag an office space near them. Atlassian is worth $30 billion.

"This is a huge boost to our state, we will have a Silicon Valley right in the heart of our city of Sydney, attracting people locally and also around Australia to these high-tech jobs," she said.

"It will provide opportunities for start-ups who may ordinarily not be able to afford space."

Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct proposal Review - released
feb 28

Quote:
The NSW Government has quietly released its David Thodey-led review of its multi-billion dollar
Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct proposal, a document that is big on vision but falls short on detail.

But with Atlassian this week signing on as an anchor tenant for the ambitious 15-year project,
the starter’s gun has been fired on the redevelopment of the Central to Eveleigh corridor to become the epicentre of the tech industry in Australia.

It is understood that ASX-listed property giant Dexus and Singapore developer Frasers have been given phase two approval under the state’s unsolicited proposals
mechanisms for the redevelopment of towers at Henry Deane Plaza near Central.


These works would create 130,000 square metres of mixed-used floorspace that gets the Precinct redevelopment underway.

Having signed-on to the program at an unveiling with Premier Gladys Berejiklian,
Atlassian will now lodge its own unsolicited proposal to government to build its corporate headquarters on a parcel of Transport for NSW-owned land adjacent.

The aim is that this first phase of the new Precinct be ready within five years.

The Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct panel report says the project needs five anchor tenants signed by 2020.

The presence of Atlassian, which has been deeply involved in the background pressing for the creation of a precinct, gives the project with a significant boost.

Sounds promising, but as the wise man said, 'there's many a slip twixt cup and lip'; a lesson we learn over and over on this forum.

Mirvac unveils first look of future Locomotive Workshops in South Eveleigh
feb 28 afr

Quote:
Mirvac has received approval to revive the historic Locomotive Workshops at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh
and convert it into a mixed-use retail, commercial, educational and recreational precinct.

The former industrial workshops will be transformed into a new asset similar to that of New York's Chelsea Market
– home of the former "Oreo cookie" factory – while still keeping its heritage characteristics.

Exclusive artist's impressions show the new food markets and office spaces which will be built. The working blacksmith workshop will be kept active.

The ATP now known as South Eveleigh is owned by a Mirvac-led consortium of AMP Capital, Sunsuper and Centuria Property Funds.

The precinct itself is being redeveloped and will become home to the Commonwealth Bank, Channel 7 and CSIRO once completed.

Construction at the Workshops will begin this year and is expected to be completed in 2020.

There's more information here:
https://www.industry.nsw.gov.au/busi.../tech-precinct

You can read the Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct report here:
https://www.industry.nsw.gov.au/__da...nel-Report.pdf

And the Prospectus here:
https://www.industry.nsw.gov.au/__da...y-precinct.pdf

Key points (as already identified):
- 250,000m2 of NLA for technology companies
- Inclusive of 50,000m2 of NLA for tech start-ups and early-stage companies at an affordable rental rate
- 25,000 additional innovation jobs
- 100 new scaleup companies
- 25,000 new students with a focus on STEM and life sciences

This will be bigger than Barangaroo, and a big shot in the arm for the transformation of Central to Eveleigh.

Too bad we have entered the pre-election phase and are unlikely to see a concept plan of some sort (it's 6 years since the redevelopment of Central to Eveleigh was announced, slow going).

It’s also probably the main reason the Redfern Station upgrade has been held up for so long. They couldn’t make up there minds on fully integrating it with this or just getting it done with the “cheap” option.

They finally realised Redfern has become so crowded they had to bite the bullet and do something.

As well as galleries and function spaces. Looks fantastic, fingers crossed they can keep them open till late at night. Had enough of cafes and food places where they shut after 5..

Quantium pulls in to South Eveleigh
mar 15 Australian

Quote:
Mirvac has snared big data analytics specialist Quantium Group as the anchor tenant for the historic Locomotive Workshops at South Eveleigh
that it is overhauling into a modern office complex.

The deal, which is yet to be finalised, would see the Woolworths-backed company shift from its headquarters at 8 Chifley Square in the Sydney CBD.

“The revitalisation of the iconic Locomotive Workshops and wider South Eveleigh precinct will deliver a unique cultural and innovation hub for Sydney,” Mirvac project director William Walker said.

Mirvac will ensure artefacts are preserved and machinery restored, including a working blacksmith.

Building in the Locomotive Workshops will begin shortly and is expected to be completed next year.

Led by Mirvac, a consortium including AMP Capital, Sunsuper and Centuria Property Funds owns the South Eveleigh precinct.
