Following the NSW Government’s announcement of the new Waterloo Metro Station, the Waterloo social housing estate will be redeveloped with new social housing and more affordable and private housing. The Waterloo Redevelopment Precinct covers land owned by the NSW Government, including the Waterloo social housing estate and the land around and above the new Waterloo metro station, known as the Metro Quarter. It also includes a number of privately owned properties.

Waterloo redevelopment moves forward

The NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) has lodged a Planning Proposal for Waterloo South  with the City of Sydney, to advance the Waterloo Estate redevelopment process (read media release).

The Proposal represents the first of three stages in the NSW Government’s proposed redevelopment plans  -  Waterloo South, Waterloo Central and Waterloo North.

The Waterloo South Proposal, which accounts for 65 per cent of the entire site, will provide more open space, wider tree-lined streets, reduced building heights (compared to the preferred masterplan release in 2019) and bike paths through the precinct.

As the first stage, Waterloo South will see early delivery of key elements such as two new parks including a new park of more than 2 hectares directly adjacent to the new Waterloo Metro development (read Waterloo newsletter).

The City of Sydney will review and assess relevant documents, prior to determining how and when to proceed with statutory public consultation. You can find out more about the assessment process on the City's website.

LAHC will continue working with the City of Sydney on plans for Waterloo Central and Waterloo North.
