The first stage of the project involved a large-scale demolition of an existing 54m building which was on the site (the demolition has since been completed).
One Hyde Park located at 130 Elizabeth Street will feature a large mixed-use building of38 floors high reaching 123m in height. The buildings use includes both residential apartments & retail space.
The development will include 190sqm of retail space. There will be a total of 140 apartments in the tower. There will be a total of 93 car parking spaces underground.
The total land area of the site is quite small being only 977sqm. The location is great being located in front of Sydney’s best-located park & right in front of a busy Sydney CBD station, Museum Station.
The development will also include a new underground station entrance which will open with the development which according to Bates Smart Architects:
“A gently sweeping curved staircase within a generous circular frameless glass structure provides natural light to this subterranean experience, significantly improving the station entry experience and public domain interface to this busy intersection. The circular form acts as an urban market on the corner as well as announcing the tunnel below. The station entry is our preferred location for public art on the project”
The project is being jointly developed by Aoyuan which is a quality Hong Kong based developer & by Ecove which is an Australian based developer who is known for their projects in Sydney such as the Opal Tower in Sydney Olympic Park. The Architect is Bates Smart which is one of the best in Australia.
The total cost of the development will be $121 Million. It is expected that the development will be finished sometime by 2019.
