Kiaora Lands Revelopment

Location: New South Head Road, Kiaora Road, Patterson Street and Anderson Street, Double Bay NSW

Use: Approved by the JRPP in June 2012, this project involves the redevelopment and construction of two mixed use buildings, including a new Council library building, commercial and retail floor space for a Thomas Dux, Woolworths and Dan Murphy’s, a new multi-deck car park and public domain improvements

Client: Woolworths Limited in an $80 million Public Private Partnership (PPP) with Woollahra Council

The Project:

TPG secured approval from the JRPP for the revitalisation of Double Bay being undertaken as a PPP between Woolworths and Woollahra Council. This included the redevelopment of the existing Woolworths site on New South Head Road, Council’s Kiaora Lane and Anderson Street car parks and a number of properties in Kiaora road and Patterson Street.

The development will contribute to the rejuvenation of the Double Bay Centre through new economic, employment, social and environmental incentives, achieved by:

  • Providing a redevelopment for the site which applies high levels of amenity and a modern urban design outcome that reflects a standard suitable for Double Bay
  • Providing for local employment during the various stages of construction and after the completion of the development to ensure beneficial flow-on effects for the Double Bay Centre
  • Attracting specialty food retailers to the development to increase the percentage of food retailing and food choice in Double Bay; and
  • Attracting and retaining local customers through the generation of public linkages and the improvement of the public domain within the development.

TPG’s key responsibilities included design input to address challenges associated with the existing site, to ensure the design of a commercial and retail anchor for the Double Bay Centre. TPG’s other key responsibilities included the preparation of a Statement of Environmental Effects and liaison with the Council and JRPP throughout the approval process to ensure a good outcome for the client and the residents of Double Bay.

Back to Urban Activation, Renewal Precincts and Infill Development

TPG were able to put in place a program and methodology that met the timing and lodgement requirements of the Department of Planning & Infrastructure, the Premier's Department and Woolworths. Maintaining these time frames with the involvement of government bodies (Warnervale Town Centre has an element of a tripartite agreement between Woolworths, Landcom and Council) proved challenging, however TPG were able to keep the project on track and maintain a professional manner. There was also numerous consultant input required and TPG were responsible for managing the quality of the consultant (civil engineers, architects, surveyors and landscape architects) input.
