On 5 June 2014, Stage 1 of the Kiaora Lands Redevelopment at Double Bay opened to the public. The redevelopment, which is worth over $100m, involves assets controlled by Woollahra Council and Woolworths to be redeveloped for a mixed use locality including retail shops and office premises, in a precinct with significant public domain improvements.
As the planning consultancy on the project, TPG was involved in the process to gain approval in 2012 through a Development Application to Woollahra Council and approved by the Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP).
The overall development once complete is expected to generate an extra $100 million in revenue for the local economy annually and create up to 300 new jobs, whilst consolidating a constrained site in the Double Bay town centre through the redevelopment of the land known as “Kiaora Lands” .
The Stage 1 redevelopment included the opening of a brand new full-line Woolworths Supermarket, Dan Murphy’s liquor outlet and Aboutlife organic grocer, as well as a multi-deck public car park containing 442 spaces.
Stage 2 is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by July 2015.Read more about this project
