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.

Have Your Say

Planning has progressed and the Stage 1 Development Application has been lodged with City of Sydney Council and is on public exhibition for comment until Tuesday 22 October. The Stage 1 Development Application proposes the master planning layout and development envelope for the site.

Part of the planning process was understanding the site opportunities and its constraints to inform the possible location of building uses, public links, open space and relationship to existing neighbours. 

We thank the community and key stakeholders for sharing local knowledge and thoughts about the initial concepts to inform the planning for the site. Changes have been made to the early concepts with consideration to community and Council feedback. To understand the changes and what is proposed you can view information and contact us to ask questions.

You can view the development application including detailed plans and assessments, and make formal submissions, online at City of Sydney development applications on exhibition.

We also encourage you to register for updates and we will keep you informed as planning progresses.
