When the Harold Park Paceway closed, the former site of NSW Harness Racing) provided an exciting opportunity for redevelopment and a landmark inner-city renewal.
Ethos Urban helped Mirvac Projects successfully purchased the site and then helped negotiate a Voluntary Planning Agreement and a successful development approval for the different precincts. We then helped through all stages of the development.
The site is now an acclaimed and desirable place to live, situated on 3.8 hectares of publicly accessible open space, providing green areas for community recreation.
The site adds 1,250 new dwellings to inner-city Sydney and restoration and protection of the site’s heritage, particularly the former Rozelle Tram Depot, which has been repurposed as a community, retail and commercial space, supporting 300 new workers.
The project is recognised for raising the bar on Australian development by creating an ecological and sustainable residential development that successfully retains the area’s heritage.
