Urbis is assisting Cbus Property in realising their vision for redevelopment of the former Inglis Stables site, known as Newmarket.

Urbis prepared of the Stage 1 Concept Plan for the site, including the successful approval of this matter via the Land and Environment Court. This approval has paved the way for the implementation of the concept via various detailed DAs for a total of 16 buildings ranging between 3-8 storeys, containing some 620 apartments and town houses, 2,200sqm of retail and commercial uses, the adaptive re-use of two significant heritage items and the creation of a public plaza and parkland.

A Voluntary Planning Agreement has also been negotiated with Randwick City Council to provide 10 affordable housing units, a 5,000sqm public park, new public roads, and the dedication of the state heritage listed ‘Big Stable’ building.

The project has required a detailed understanding of residential design matters, heritage conservation, legal issues associated with the provision of affordable housing, the careful management of residential interface issues and local traffic management. Urbis have lead discussions with Council and the Sydney Planning Panel in the approval of the Concept Plan and ongoing development proposals.

Newmarket will be a truly unique development focused on high quality architectural and landscape design, housing diversity, heritage conservation, activation of public spaces, and neighbourhood amenity.
