Project Description


Our Involvement

In association with 3D Projects, City Plan Heritage prepared the Site Interpretation Strategy for the Lend Lease redevelopment of the CSR sugar refinery in Pyrmont. The Site Interpretation Strategy intended to explore & ultimately express the significant history, associations, culture & physical character of this unique & special place. The expression of these significant characteristics & values aimed to enhance and contribute to the latest phase or layer of use & development in the site’s history. The site is one of high cultural value owing to its long term industrial use & its redevelopment as the new mixed residential &commercial suburb of Jackson’s Landing. The Site Interpretation Strategy identified opportunities for interpreting the significant values of the place & proposed schematic options for site specific installations, interpreting tangible & intangible heritage values as well as preparing naming strategies, guidance signage & briefs for interpretive artworks. Guidelines & policies were prepared to guide the interpretative actions addressing issues of ownership, retrofitting, visitor orientation, durability & maintenance.
