Macquarie Park Corridor DCP Review
data, awards, description –
The Macquarie Park Corridor urban design project envisions the redevelopment of a former industrial zone into a thriving CBD in Sydney’s northwest.
An urban engine room Macquarie Park Corridor, in Sydney’s inner northwest, is home to several Top 100 companies and is identified as a key site in the Sydney Metropolitan Strategy. The former industrial zone, with its large land holdings and block sizes and limited connections with the neighbourhood, required major planning to become an alternative CBD.
A new town centre Allen Jack+Cottier (in association with Aspect, Stephen Collier Architects and Randles Straatveit Architects) worked to provide a blueprint for future development. The team developed a dynamic new street plan, linked by open spaces, to create a vibrant urban environment focused around the area’s new train stations. Detailed built form controls provide a model for future development, integrating buildings, public places and streets for much-improved access and amenity.
