A proposal by Mirvac Projects Pty Ltd to build a mixed use development with 694 new homes in Sydney Olympic Park is on exhibition for community consultation.
The Department of Planning and Environment is keen to hear the community’s views on the proposal for Site 53 at 2 Figtree Drive, which seeks to construct four residential flat buildings with heights varying between nine and 31 storeys.
The proposed development, which is the largest submitted since the Sydney Olympic Park Masterplan 2030 was unveiled last October, will provide for jobs with 1,496m2 of retail space included along with basement parking for 852 cars, public parks and other public domain improvements.
A spokesperson for the Department of Planning and Environment said the local community always has an opportunity to share their views.
‘Community consultation is an integral part of the planning process and the applicant will have to respond to the feedback we receive,’ the spokesperson said.
‘This feedback is taken into consideration as part of the assessment.
‘It’s easy to participate by going online and we encourage everyone to take a look and have their say.’
