‘Surry Hills Village’, the much-anticipated revitalisation of the Surry Hills Shopping Village in Sydney, has been approved.
Located on the corner of Cleveland & Baptist Street, ‘Surry Hills Village’ features a collection of high-end residences, as well as an extensive retail and commercial office premises, creating a vibrant mixed-use development that will regenerate the area.
The precinct will deliver a selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and a luxury collection of residences including Penthouses and Terraces featuring city views and large garden areas.
The master-planned precinct will also offer its residents and neighbouring community a diverse range of spaces including densely landscaped green areas, market-style retail, dining precinct and pedestrian laneway linking Marriott Street and Baptist Street. Additionally, approximately 12,000 square metres of the development is dedicated to commercial and retail spaces.
Fabrizio Perilli, CEO of TOGA, said the development approval was a significant milestone for the development.
“Surry Hills Village is surrounded by a melting pot of the city’s finest restaurants, bars, art, music and culture. The precinct we are creating pays homage to this great community’s significant history while helping to shape its next chapter.”
The City of Sydney’s strategic focus on transforming inner-city urban precincts is seeing significant infrastructure, investment and planning focus on suburbs such as Redfern and Surry Hills. ‘Surry Hills Village’ will contribute to this broader city vision, delivering a renewed neighbourhood destination that will meet the current and future needs of locals and visitors.
The project team includes Adam Haddow, Architect and Principal, SJB; Iain Halliday, Director, BKH; Sacha Coles, Director, Aspect Studios; and Eva-Marie Prineas, Architect and Principal, Studio Prineas.
Adam Haddow, Director at SJB said, “This area to us is the quintessential Sydney – at the edge of the city it plays an important role in the ‘and’ of Sydney. It is not about the beaches or the bush, it is an area focused on creativity and industry, and we’re excited to be contributing to this legacy.
BKH has designed interiors of the apartments while SJB has designed interiors of the luxury residence collection including Penthouses and Terraces.
“The penthouses in the project are a personal favourite of mine,” said Mr. Haddow “They are an extension of an investigation we began a few years ago with the design of my own apartment. How do we better engage outdoor spaces into apartments? We live in a remarkable city with the most fantastic climate, we want apartment dwellers to be able to take advantage of this connection to the outdoors just as much as house dwellers do!”
The design of the building will focus on retraining the texture and culture of the heritage building at Surry Hills Shopping Village, undertaking adaptive concentration of the building’s heritage façade, while engaging nature in a modern architectural vision for a lively and connected precinct.
As both developer and builder of all their developments, TOGA will commence construction of the ‘Surry Hills Village’ project in the second half of 2020.
