THE FUTURE OF PRECINCT 75
Precinct 75 has recently lodged a Planning Proposal and Development Application with the Department of Planning and the Inner West Council.
This proposal seeks to create a new benchmark for sustainable mixed use development within the Inner West LGA. Our proposal aims to renew the space for living and working and in turn, continue to celebrate the local community’s creativity and assist its transition into a thriving and creative urban village.
A Planning Proposal to rezone the existing site from IN2 Light Industry and R2 Low Density Residential to B4 Mixed Uses was lodged to the Department of Planning & Environment in August 2017. Subsequently, a Development Application was submitted in November 2017 for a mixed-use development which aims to retain existing creative commercial spaces while providing additional commercial spaces and new residential properties.
The aim is to retain and enhance Precinct 75’s existing industrial fabric while adding spaces that enables live / work balance by introducing additional creative commerce studios and residential apartments while replacing old tin sheds with open green spaces.
The proposal is inspired by the following values:
• Access: linking local public transport networks and pedestrians as well as encouraging alternate forms of transport.
• Community: evoking a sense of place and creating community spaces.
• Landscape: open, green spaces.
• Creative Industries: retaining the existing character of the site as a local creative industry precinct.
• Live/work: suitable for small businesses.
• Encourage employment: supporting the ongoing use of the site for creative production.
• Sustainable development: incorporating ecologically sustainable design principles into the design, construction and operational phases of the development.
• Remediation: remediating on-site contamination from the historical industrial uses
The proposed development seeks consent for the following:
• Partial demolition across the site.
• Alterations and additions to existing buildings and construction of new buildings to create a mixed-use development that includes 178 residential apartments and approximately an additional 2,500m2 of commercial gross floor area (GFA).
• Associated basement car parking.
• Landscaping works throughout the site, including a central plaza, semi-private garden for residents and a pocket park.
Further information and detailed plans, these can be found on the Council Website: http://www.yoursayinnerwest.com.au/planning-proposal-for-mary-edith-and-roberts-streets-st-peters
