The latest urban renewal project in central Sydney covers 24 hectares of government-owned land around Central Railway Station, bound by Pitt Street, Eddy Avenue, Cleveland Street and Elizabeth Street – part of Central 2 Eveleigh.
The first area to be developed has been labelled the Sydney Innovation and Technology Precinct, with Atlassian to develop and move into a 35 storey building on the site of the current YHA backpackers hotel. Plans include significant development over and alongside the railway tracks, largely for employment, commercial and retail floor space. It also promises reworking the Western Forecourt, Henry Deane Plaza and Railway Square into a new public open space, open space over the railway lines, several pedestrian links over the tracks and protecting Prince Alfred Park sun.
You can comment on the draft Strategic Vision and Western Gateway Rezoning Proposal up to Wednesday 27 November, 2019. There are drop-in sessions at the Central Station Old Coach Terminal, corner of Pitt Street and Eddy Avenue 4-7pm Tuesday 29 October, Thursday 31 October, Wednesday 6 November and Tuesday 19 November.
