Apartments 450 Market Apartments, 150 Social Housing Units
A two-phase redevelopment of existing Housing New South Wales and Council lands to deliver a new park-side master plan delivering in Phase 1, 150 new social housing units for St George Housing clustered around a new ‘Garden Square’ and Library for Canterbury Council.
A network of new streets extends and improves access from existing residential uses to the south of the site and provides good communication corridors to the refurbished wetland parklands to the north. An existing island green space is revitalised and expanded to create a substantial new recreational space for residents.
The new streets and park are flanked by street edge buildings offering 450 additional new private dwellings in Phase 2, all of which have a common typological framework that revitalises the existing ‘landlocked’ island buildings on the site, frees the public domain, and removes the current ambiguities of public and private ownership.
