Yep, those.

don't shoot me if I'm wrong but seem most likely as they are the only ones left of the Landcom-Mirvac sites & they add up to 9 sites.

Exclusive
Mirvac places 800-unit bet on Sydney apartment market

Mirvac is casting a vote of confidence in Sydney's apartment market by acquiring the last two stages in Landcom's Green Square Town Centre, a former industrial precinct and one of the most significant urban renewal projects under way in Australia.

ASX-listed Mirvac will start construction in mid-2022 on the development comprising nine buildings in total with about 800 build-to-sell apartments, 7,600 sq m of retail space and 47,500 sq m of commercial space - with a total end value of $2 billion, 4km south of the CBD.

Mirvac’s head of residential, Stuart Penklis, said the acquisition was in line with the company's urban strategy to restock its residential development pipeline with projects that were well located with strong demand.

"This is a market we know very well and ultimately the level of infrastructure that has already be delivered into Green Square by the state government and City of Sydney council, gives us significant confidence around demand and that demand is obviously heavily weighted towards owner-occupiers," Mr Penklis said.

He said the library, a new aquatic centre, public school and park, were all part of the ingredients that would make Green Square a "really vibrant place".

The final stages of the project were sold to Mirvac by Landcom, the NSW government's land and property development agency and major landowner within the Green Square Town Centre, for an undisclosed sum.

Mirvac became Landcom's development partner after striking a deal to develop a total of 5.1 hectares of land in Green Square in 2012.

The pair have already built 476 apartments across two towers and a new "high street" in the town centre with another 323 apartments and terrace homes on the way.

Mirvac and Landcom will begin to sell those apartments off the plan in the next few weeks. It will be the first launch of a significant apartment project in recent times in a city in which the new housing pipeline is shrinking. New unit approvals in NSW slumped 32 per cent in August from July. Completions of new apartments will shrink by 81 per cent over the next three years, Charter Keck Cramer says.

Cul, are the details for the residential towers for the 8 and 19 towers and if so, are they final design or just the concept design?

TRANSACTION TED TABET THU 08 OCT 20
Mirvac Buys into $2bn Green Square Masterplan

fb918557-c13c-456d-8aac-e2dcc94496db


ASX-listed developer Mirvac has acquired the two remaining residential stages of a $2 billion development in Sydney’s Green Square Town Centre.

The final stages of the project were sold to Mirvac by Landcom, the NSW government’s land and property development agency and major landowner within the Green Square Town Centre, for an undisclosed sum.

The remaining stages, comprising nine buildings in total with about 800 build-to-sell apartments, 7,600sq m of retail space and 47,500sq m of commercial space, will kick off construction in mid-2022.

The Green Square suburb is the $13 billion urban renewal project between Landcom and the City of Sydney, with Mirvac as a key developer.

Green Square, publicised as one of Sydney’s largest urban regeneration projects, spans the suburbs of Alexandria, Zetland, Waterloo, Rosebery and Beaconsfield.

Mirvac head of residential Stuart Penklis said that despite the economic downturn the developer remained ideally placed to complete the transformation of Green Square into a vibrant global village.

“This acquisition is in line with our urban strategy to restock our residential development pipeline with projects that are well located with strong demand,” Penklis said.

“[This] relationship is a great demonstration of a state-owned corporation working in conjunction with the private sector to deliver high quality diverse housing, progressive social and physical infrastructure.”

▲ When completed, the new suburb four kilometres south of the Sydney CBD will have 30,500 new dwellings with Green Square housing 61,000 new residents by 2030.

Landcom, the major landowner within Green Square, has held a project agreement with Mirvac since it made its first moves to develop 5.1 hectares of land in 2012.

Mirvac has spearheaded work on the town centre during the past eight years, while Landcom has spent more than 20 years planning, acquiring and amalgamating land and remediating the site.

Together, Landcom and Mirvac have completed 476 apartments within projects Ebsworth and OVO, as well as a new high street in the town centre and the upcoming release of 323 apartments and terrace homes in the masterplan’s current stage, which Landcom remains involved in.

Ovo, Ebsworth and proposed apartment buildings will make up 1.4 hectares of completed housing development by Mirvac in the precinct.

Mirvac’s forthcoming Green Square buildings will be connected to its existing Ovo and Ebsworth developments.

Landcom executive general manager projects Scott Gregg said the state developer would continue to play a foundational role in establishing the Green Square Town Centre.
“Green Square is one of the highest-profile and largest urban renewal projects in Australia,” Gregg said.

“It has required careful management to resolve complex, fragmented land ownership, navigate multiple government agency involvement and position the area as an attractive investment for the private sector.”

The transaction will now enable Landcom to increase new investment in creating more affordable and sustainable communities in New South Wales.

Not-for-profit City West Housing has 104 affordable apartments at 130 Portman Street; and the City of Sydney has committed to building several key community projects in the area, including a $32 million cultural precinct, an aquatic centre, new green spaces, a library and a new public park known as the Drying Green.

Thanks. As I thought:

8 A&B Stage 1 DA not yet lodged - will be approx. 24 and 17 storeys +/-. I have figures from 2013 indicating 8A will be c.100m & 8B c.70m.

Stage 1 DA approved:
8C 24 storeys c. 87m
8D 10 storeys 38m
19A 21 storeys c.76m
19B 10 storeys 38m

Thanks for the pic of the model. I wanted a good one like that to scare the pants of the uninformed but all knowing locals who are declaring Infinity and Ovo Tower are 'out of place'.
Not that I'm evil.
Heh, heh, heh! 😇

Mirvac break ground at Green Square on Australia’s first luxury residential building to seek WELL certification
Sarah Buckley

The Green Square Town Centre takes a step forward today as Mirvac and Landcom begin construction of ‘Portman on the Park’; the latest stage of luxury apartments designed to set new standards in health and wellness.

Mirvac Managing Director & CEO, Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz, and Landcom CEO, John Brogden, were joined at the ground breaking ceremony by Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore, and NSW Treasurer, Dominic Perrottet.

The project is expected to generate over 550 jobs in construction and provide additional employment for a range of sub-contractors, suppliers and consultants.

Portman on the Park is the first residential building in Australia to register to seek WELLv2 Certification, a globally recognised benchmark designed to improve the health and wellness impacts of the built environment. Mirvac’s 200 George Street headquarters was the first building in Australia to be certified under the WELL Building Standard, achieving a gold rating, and this is the first time Mirvac has set out to apply WELL Principles in a residential setting.

Designed by CO-AP in collaboration with Mirvac Design, Portman on the Park is an intimate collection of approximately 119 luxury apartments, many with dual aspect views of Sydney’s CBD and the town centre’s proposed future 6,200sqm central park, The Drying Green which City of Sydney intends to complete by 2022. Guided by the concepts of wellness and luxury, every aspect of the development is thoughtfully designed to deliver a higher standard of living, with natural elements woven into the buildings through landscaped open spaces, gardens and greenery incorporated into the façade.

Mirvac and Landcom have delivered 476 apartments at Green Square, including Ebsworth, No.8 Ebsworth, OVO and OVO at Portman Place. The most recent 28-storey OVO was launched in 2015 and completed in August 2018.

The Green Square community has benefited from the City of Sydney’s $540 million investment, creating world-class facilities including an award-winning Green Square Library and Town Plaza, a creative centre, community building, childcare centre and over 40 parks. The Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre is anticipated to open later this year, which will also include a multipurpose sports field.

Ms Lloyd-Hurwitz commented, “The start of construction on Portman on the Park represents the next chapter in the development of Green Square where the community will continue to thrive with new buildings and facilities. We are proud to continue with our construction schedule to support jobs growth and the recovery of the economy.

“Having experienced the benefits of a WELL office at our headquarters at 200 George Street, and with an understanding of the stringent requirements to gain Certification, we are setting ourselves the challenge of delivering a building here at Green Square that is designed to support the wellness of its residents.

“Over the past year we have endured two critical events – bushfires and a pandemic - that have changed the passive relationship we have with our built environment. We now have a far greater appreciation of what it means to breathe clean air and have the pleasure of natural light in our homes.

“Good design can resolve many of the imperfections that people have discovered as they spend night and day working and living from home, and in the future they will demand better from our city’s architects and builders.”

Landcom CEO John Brogden said “We are truly proud of our collaboration with Mirvac in delivering the Green Square precinct and the community we have created here. Green Square is a great demonstration of a successful urban renewal project that transformed a former industrial area into an attractive, sought-after community.”

Mirvac Head of Residential Stuart Penklis said “Portman on the Park will set a new standard in design excellence, quality and attention to every detail which our customers have come to expect from us. We’ve conducted extensive research into our customer’s needs and wants in a home and are in the process of delivering a truly unique offering that is a testament to Mirvac’s integrated model drawing on over 48 years of market defining experience.

“We are confident in the strength of our apartment offering in this market and have started construction prior to the sales launch of Portman on the Park. This new development will be highly sought-after from a range of buyers providing a prime position and frontage to the proposed new park with exceptional design, amenities and health and wellness features. At the heart of Green Square, it will also be a catalyst for the completion of the second half of the new Town Centre, extending the already thriving community.”

With its premium location opposite the proposed future Drying Green, Portman on the Park residents will, when completed, have easy access to open space for recreation, fitness and leisure activities. Proposed amenities for residents also include exclusive use of a proposed co-working space and wellness centre, in addition to a shared landscaped courtyard with barbecue and space for outdoor dining and lounging.

Health and wellness initiatives are intended to include enhanced cross-flow ventilation and natural lighting. Kitchen water filters are intended to be included as standard. Lighting systems are intended to be programmable and Mirvac is exploring lighting options such as those that align with the natural circadian rhythm and have optionality for tuneable white to warm light fixtures to mimic the natural dawn to dusk experience.

NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said: “At the height of the pandemic the construction industry was vital in keeping tens of thousands of people in work and it will continue to play a crucial role in our economic recovery by creating jobs now and into the future as well as transforming this area on the fringe of the Sydney CBD.”

Mirvac is planning to launch sales in November 2020.

Yes, the 23 storey tower and the 12 storey buildings on Zetland Avenue facing the park.

The tower will be c.78m - not confirmed.

I assume there will be some staging of completion including the 12 storey tower on the corner of Barker Street & Ebsworth Street which may come later.
There are also some terraces tucked away on Portman Street behind the taller buildings.

Some personal observations on retail at Green Square Town Centre:

  • The largest restaurant space thus far in the TC, Butcher and the Farmer, which opened around December 2019, has now permanently closed. This is very sad, as the restaurant was very large with a significant fit-out, and was getting quite busy pre-COVID. Personally, I really liked the spacious, casual, counter-order nature of this place, it reminded me of an American casual restaurant.

  • Nothing has opened at the bottom of the Uno and surrounding buildings as yet.

  • Not much vibe in the inner atrium area of Infinity. It's dark at every hour of the day. The KFC and McDonalds bring in lots of Uber riders who hang around the area, but that's about it. I personally eat at both of these restaurants, but it's a short sighted move by Crown as it kills any hopes of the area turning into an "eat street" or whatever they call it.

  • Freddie Greens, which was just across Botany Rd at the new Veriu hotel, has closed permanently. Also very sad as it was a lovely spot with amazing food, run by two managers from France who really worked extremely hard to make the place succeed, but alas the loss of tourism and patronage from bushfires followed by Covid was too much for them.

  • Camy's chicken is a nice spot but usually pretty quiet, mostly takeaway...

  • The wind tunnel down Ebsworth St. Honestly probably the biggest issue. Yesterday it was downright unsafe, never mind how unpleasant it makes the area. Not sure anything can be done. Planners make a fuss about very minor design details and then don't pay any attn to wind tunnel effects.

  • Library: City of Sydney being frustratingly conservative citing "safety" in keeping the library closed until this week when they are finally allowing people to book 2 hour "seatings" in the library. Browse and borrow available. Upon emails requesting clarification on what metrics they are using to gauge "safety," they do not provide any. They've killed off small events such as Rhyme Time and other things important to the community. If you know this library, you know its strength is not purely in checking out books as it has a small collection. It's a gathering place.

  • South of the TC in Rosebery where the massive Meriton development has opened there's the Woolies Metro and new hospitality opening around it. Haven Cafe is great. This area seems to have more going on.
Generally I've been optimistic about the Town Centre long term but I'd venture to say COVID set us back 3-5 years on its development.

On the bright side, the Meriton building in the TC is going up extremely quickly and so this should give an burst of life to the area bringing in a large amount of new residents.
