Sydney’s new Victoria Cross Station Design and Precinct Plan has been approved by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
The station precinct will be a major drawcard for visitors, workers and locals, creating a new pedestrian laneway and outdoor spaces in the heart of North Sydney.
It will also feature a three-storey retail building and dining and entertainment strip on Miller Street.
New, adaptive open lawn areas could host future pop-up events such as market stalls, food trucks or other regular or temporary events.
The development aligns with North Sydney Council’s vision of Miller Street as a green, civic boulevard running north to south through the heart of the urban centre.
The Victoria Cross Metro Station will be a catalyst for the continuing rejuvenation and re-invigoration of the North Sydney CBD. It will provide easier, faster public transport links, new retail offerings and flexible public domain spaces that will enliven the urban precinct.
The project will also attract more shoppers and visitors and improve travel for locals through enhanced transport connections such as ‘kiss and ride’ bays, bus interchange areas and public bike parking facilities.
The Victoria Cross station project will create around 500 jobs with construction due to begin in early 2021.
Lendlease has been awarded the contract to deliver the station component of the Victoria Cross Integrated Station Development in North Sydney – including new retail spaces and improvements to the public domain.
