This over station development (OSD) includes the first Build-to-Rent apartment development in Central Sydney, which provides high amenity residential apartments above the new Sydney Metro Pitt Street Station. Urbis acted as planning advisor on this landmark project – guiding the consortia through the competitive tendering phase through to the delivery of the project via the State Significant Development Application process to obtain approval for a 39-storey residential building including 234 dwellings above the southern entry of the Pitt Street station.
Our team prepared planning documentation, liaised with the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and Council, attended consultation meetings and advised on technical planning issues, working closely with other consultants as needed. The OSD is successfully integrated with the station below and the adjacent heritage sites, including the Edinburgh Castle Hotel on the corner of Pitt and Bathurst streets. The project will be a key marker of the Sydney Metro Pitt Street Station within Sydney CBD, and an early example of quality Built-to-Rent housing in the metropolitan centre.
