Next stage of Western Gateway on exhibition

The Department of Planning, Industry and Environment is calling for community feedback on the second stage of rezoning for the Western Gateway sub-precinct, known as ‘Block C’, including the former Parcels Post Office (Adina Apartment Hotel) building and Henry Deane Plaza adjacent to Central Station.

Executive Director, Eastern Harbour City Malcolm McDonald said the community is invited to have its say on the rezoning proposal by Transport for NSW.

“It’s important everyone look at the proposal and play a role in planning for the future of this precinct,” Mr McDonald said.

The Western Gateway is the first stage of planning for the Central Precinct State Significant Precinct, which aims to revitalise the area as a fulcrum of innovation, collaboration and create the jobs of the future. Central Precinct will create great new places in an exciting and vibrant setting that supports the vision of a 24-hour economy, with the Western Gateway becoming the focal point of Tech Central.

The rezoning will transform Central Station to deliver on the new technology and innovation precinct while retaining and enhancing the heritage values of buildings such as the former Parcels Post building.

The plans for the public exhibition of the Western Gateway (Block C) Rezoning Proposal are available to view until Friday 29 January 2021.

The initial component of the Western Gateway, Blocks A (Sydney Railway Square YHA site) and B (the commercial office block at Lee Street, Haymarket), were rezoned in August 2020 following a public exhibition in late 2019.

The project proponent, Transport for NSW, has a dedicated project email - projects@transport.nsw.gov.au - and information number (1800 684 490) for any questions from the community about the proposal.
