It has already seen cycles of renewal, each bringing changes to the building stock and public domain to suit different community needs – an urban fabric that is diverse, evident in the adjacent urban renewal areas of Green Square, Redfern, and Waterloo Metro due to open in 2023. The Waterloo South Planning Proposal seeks to ensure future generations can thrive and build upon this connected community.
