The Hudson

Alexandria, Sydney, NSW, Australia

data, awards, description

Completed in 1998, this award-winning residential development was an early addition to the transformation of South Sydney’s Green Square.

The site Allen Jack+Cottier transformed the former Alcatel factory site in Alexandria into a 272-unit development. Arranged around a central courtyard and retail village, the development comprises one refurbished building and three purpose-built ones.

A place of change A key objective was to create in The Hudson an attractive, safe living environment with a strong sense of place, connectivity and community. One of Green Square’s first new residential developments, The Hudson reflects the public domain concerns of the Green Square masterplan. The area continues to shed its industrial past in favour of innovative architecture and urban renewal.

Multiple housing styles The one-, two- and three-bedroom dwellings take the form of two-storey, loft-style, split-level, courtyard and penthouse-style apartments. The four buildings were separately crafted to give each a sense of individuality, but their materials provide a common thread.
