Barker Ryan Stewart has been engaged for the provision of town planning services to assist with addressing the Secretary Environmental Assessment Requirements for the State Significant Development application for the re-development of the Gosford Gateway Centre.
The proposed $300 million development will include a mixed use precinct with a range of complimentary functions through three tower buildings. It will also include a high-quality public plaza in the centre connecting the existing green space at Burns Place and Gosford Station.
Whilst the design is currently at the concept stage, the development will be tailored to include a hotel facility, commercial offices, retail areas, an educational and entertainment component, student accommodation, retirement independent living units and a health services precinct.
The first tower would be located on the northern end of the site at the corner of Mann and Faunce Streets and will comprise approximately 24 levels, including a podium of 3-4 levels.
The second tower will occupy the south-eastern section of the site with frontage along Watt Street and will comprise approximately 33 levels, including a podium of 4 levels.
The third tower will face Mann Street in the south-western section of the site. The existing retail building will be adaptively reused in this location to maintain a retail podium of 3 levels and will then be extended from the podium to a maximum height of approximately 15 levels. There will be ample basement parking available with access from Watt and Faunce Streets.
The full scope of service includes:
- Request for SEARs
- Environmental Impact Statement
- Consultation with Community and Government Agencies
- Social and Economic Impact Statement
- Services and Utilities Impact Assessment
