What is this proposal about?
Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030 (2018 Review) includes the future development directions for the town centre of Sydney Olympic Park. The Master Plan earmarks Site 2 (including Sties 2A and 2B) for future development. For more information about Site 2 please see image gallery below.
To allow the development, the applicant now requires
a) Change to the height control for the site and;
b) Planning approval for this State Significant Development (SSD).
Change to the height control for the site
State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005 controls height limits in Sydney Olympic Park. The current and proposed heights for Sites 2A and 2B are:
|Current height control
|Proposed height control
|Increased to 149m
|Decreased to 46m
The heights for 2A and 2B are being amended to:
- Tailor the building heights for the site to provide a more nuanced built form, thereby importantly minimising overshadowing and retaining the amenity of existing neighbouring residential developments;
- Contribute to the variation in height of the tall building cluster within the urban centre of Sydney Olympic Park; and
- Mark the termination of the historic Olympic east-west axis from Stadium Australia, along Dawn Fraser Avenue/Herb Elliot Avenue including the Sydney Olympic Park train station to Site 2, with a distinctive urban form.

5 storey pavilion building.
|A plaza incorporating tower buildings, protecting the current fig tree on site, with two pavilions and ground floor food an beverage outlets is also proposed.
