Community engagement has now concluded.

Around 77 jobs have been created as part of this project.

This residential building will have 41 social housing apartments over seven-storeys configured as 21 one-bedroom and 20 two-bedroom units.

The development will include basement parking for 19 vehicles, bicycle and motorbike spaces as well as landscaping. Rooftop solar has also been incorporated into the design.

The site is within the Gosford central business district, close to Gosford train station, Gosford Hospital, Gosford High School and Gosford Public School.

The high-quality architecture and fa├žade will deliver a strong design statement. This development aims to establish a new benchmark for development in the area.

Gosford city centre is undergoing significant transformation into a high density residential area, with development of varying scales. This is in line with the NSW Government’s objectives to revitalise and grow the centre.

The development responds to the desired future character of the area and will form a positive contribution to the streetscape while contributing to the desired outcomes of State and Local Government strategic planning policies to provide higher density development in well located areas.

As the development is valued at more than $10 million, and is located in the Gosford city centre, the Minister for Planning was the consent authority.

This development was part of the third tranche of the NSW Government’s fast-tracked assessment process, which is designed to stimulate economic activity.
