Fig and Wattle Street Proposal

We are reactivating the land on the corner of Fig and Wattle Streets, Pyrmont. When completed, the proposal will provide local residents with a two-court indoor recreational centre, a 91 place child care centre, and a new public link from Jones Street to Wattle Street.

The redevelopment of the site will also provide a diversity of housing, small-scale convenience retail and a new commercial space destination for Pyrmont.

Located at 14-26 Wattle Street opposite Wentworth Park, the site has been a City of Sydney depot since the early 1900s. It was purchased from City of Sydney in December 2018. We are excited about the opportunity to reimagine such an important site in Pyrmont’s unique history and character.

To achieve this, we have brought together an expert team of designers, place makers, community engagement specialists and planners, including renowned architects Tzannes as the lead design consultant. Importantly, we will also be tapping into local knowledge by consulting with the community and key stakeholders to inform the design and development.

City of Sydney  is demolishing one of the buildings onsite

Although the buildings are unoccupied, City of Sydney’s recent structural review has identified that one of the buildings require demolition for safety reasons.

City of Sydney has advised it will continue to monitor the remaining structures until the land is in the control of Landream.

Have Your Say

We are in the early stages of the planning process. This first stage is the development of the site’s possible master planning layout and development envelope. Part of this process is understanding the site opportunities and its constraints to inform the possible location of building uses, public links, open space and relationship to existing neighbours. 

The first planning approval process is lodgement of the Stage 1 Development Application. The application will be assessed by the City of Sydney Council and placed on public exhibition for comment.

Prior to finalising and lodging the development application, we would like to hear feedback from our neighbours and stakeholders about the proposal and what should be considered as the project progresses into detailed planning.

You can view information about the proposal and share your feedback using the register link. You can also come along to a community information and feedback session on Tuesday 4 June at the Ultimo Community Centre. We welcome you to drop-in anytime between 5.30pm and 7.30pm to learn more and speak with members of the project team.
