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.
