168 NORTON STREET, LEICHHARDT
Seniors Living
Client: Uniting
Cost: $16.97 Million
Status: Approved (2019)
Overview

The redevelopment of this derelict site will bring to fruition a long held vision to provide modern, affordable independent living units for seniors and those less able in the Inner West community.

Development

The proposed development includes demolition of the existing vacant building and construction of a new 5-6 storey Seniors Living Development with 50 independent living units (ILUs) inclusive of eight affordable living units. Ground level commercial and community spaces will activate the Norton Street frontage and roof top communal open spaces will provide residents with attractive outdoor entertainment and leisure opportunities.

Our Involvement

City Plan provided strategic planning advice, prepared a site specific planning proposal with voluntary planning agreement and supporting development control plan. We subsequently prepared a Development Application, inclusive of a Statement of Environmental Effects addressing all relevant planning controls, site conditions and environmental impacts.

City Plan, alongside Uniting and other consultant team members presented the Development Application to the Inner West Local Planning Panel where it was approved.
