5 UHRIG ROAD LIDCOMBE


BVN proposes three-tower development in Western Sydney

BVN has designed a three-tower residential and commercial block for the burgeoning Carter Street Precinct of Lidcombe, Western Sydney.

The development would include 579 residential apartments across three towers of 29, 22 and 19 storeys and four townhouses, as well as an eight-storey commercial building with ground-level retail spaces.

According to the architects, the building mass would be defined by a podium and tower separation, “allowing a change of materials to provide a rich series of podium forms and clean tower forms, articulated by sun shelves, and vertical fins.”

The range of building types would provide “aesthetic diversity across the site,” write the architects in the development application, which is currently before the City of Parramatta.

The Carter Street Precinct, which sits at the edge of Sydney Olympic Park, was rezoned in 2015 to transition away from light-industrial uses and pave the way for up to 5,500 dwellings, a new village centre and a new primary school.

BVN designed another block of apartments to the north of this development that was approved in December 2017 and is currently under construction.

The architects state that the proposed design will relate to the “current and future context” of the Carter Street Precinct and the adjacent Sydney Olympic Park while minimizing overshadowing to other developments and the adjacent public open space.

“These built forms reinforce the desired street pattern, through site link, and pedestrian flows, and together provide a variety of dwelling types and ample high-quality landscaped communal open spaces.”

Arcadia, landscape architect for the project, has developed a landscape design that seeks to “allow residents the perception of borrowing the surrounding public land as their own backyard ensuring a sense of ownership and security.”

The landscape design draws reference from the natural character and industrial past of Homebush Bay through the use of brick and stone and native vegetation.

A development application for the project at 5 Uhrig Road, Lidcombe is on public exhibition until 7 February.

It’s was 32 floors 95 metre then reduced 88 metre 30 floors if you add 10 floors would be 122 metre 42 floors.

It’s interesting my brother once live not far from here then he did went display look for apartment mention that they’re plan 54 floors would be 148 metre tall, later I told him “Honolulu type skyscraper of floors” because one of them 47 floors 128 metre tall later I did math for this then would be 171 metre 60 floors could be better similar to Marine City in Chicago both of them 179 metre tall 61 floors each.
It’s since construction 88 metre 30 floors for now.
My brother is birthday today

Anyone have access to DT? Or know how to get past the paywall? Can't really make out which is the 50 storey tower from these renders:

Waterfront Complex at Mercy of Rail Links

A waterfront complex flanking the Parramatta River proposes a 50-storey tower, a $20 million swimming pool and childcare centre. But developers’ ambitions might come to a halt if transport isn’t up to scratch.

8 Fig Tree Drive, Sydney Olympic Park

A mixed use development includes residential, commercial office and retail at Sydney Olympic Park. The high rise development is located on the prestigious Olympic Boulevard marking the corner of the Olympic Park Central Precinct with total gross floor area of 72,000 sqm. An eight storey commercial building rises dynamically to anchor this corner; vibrant retail extends along the street front linking the commercial and residential components. Internal pedestrian streets unlock the interior of the site, giving access to a generous private park surrounded by residential townhouse style apartments. Two elegant towers rise on either side of the park providing high end condominium living with views over the entire region and iconic Olympic stadiums.
