Wentworth Point Planning and Urban Design
Wentworth Point & Homebush Bay, Sydney NSW
Billbergia, Sekisui House
David Lock Associates prepared the Planning Proposal and Urban Design Review to support major planning initiatives at Wentworth Point. These will facilitate the delivery of a new pedestrian, cycle and public transport bridge across Homebush Bay, which DLA also helped secure approval for.
The plan amendments provide an additional 120,000 m2 of floor space and the introduction of 16 to 25 storey towers to a predominantly 4 to 8 storey planning framework. The revised controls respond to the significance of the new bridge connecting the emerging community with Rhodes.
The Urban Design Review established a set of urban design, built form and massing principles to inform how best to accommodate an additional floor space in a revised Urban Design Framework for the precinct to fund the bridge.
David Lock Associates also prepared the Planning Proposal Report, the draft amendments to the Homebush Bay West DCP and advised on the Voluntary Planning Agreement to secure the Bridge and directly undertook most agency negotiations.
