Stage 2 DA Achieved for Fig and Wattle Streets, Pyrmont

Landream has secured Stage 2 DA approval from the City of Sydney Council for its iconic Pyrmont development at 14-26 Wattle St, Pyrmont, on March 28, 2024.

In collaboration with BVN, Landream is revitalising the precinct, formerly known as Saunders Quarry and later as the City of Sydney Council depot, with a design ethos that honours the site’s history, embraces Pyrmont’s diverse character and activates the area as a mixed-use hub with enhanced public amenities throughout.

The $900M mixed-use project will feature four buildings comprising 237 apartments and a 14,500 sqm commercial building, complemented by landscaped open space and dedicated residents’ amenities, including unique stand-alone spaces designed for residents working from home. The project will also introduce a 91-place childcare facility and a recreation centre with two indoor sports courts, to be owned by the City of Sydney Council.

As winners of a design excellence competition, BVN’s ethos to the project revealed the site’s ecological past and re-establishes connections to Country while embracing Pyrmont’s diverse character. Fig and Wattle activates the area as a vibrant work-meets-lifestyle hub enhanced with open spaces, recreation facilities and family-friendly amenities.

This place has a unique history that offers many layers of inspiration,” says BVN principal Phillip Rossington. “The 14-26 Wattle Street address will be home to over 230 new residences with city, water and park views along with an A-Grade commercial building, childcare facility and City of Sydney-owned recreation centre with two indoor sports courts”, he says.

All buildings are strategically positioned opposite Wentworth Park, the Light Rail station and another major Sydney redevelopment precinct – the Sydney Fish Markets, also designed by BVN together with 3XN.

In addition to high-quality residences with city, water and park views, the project incorporates public links for a seamless pedestrian connection between Jones Street and Wentworth Park.

We are proud to achieve the Stage 2 DA approval and are looking forward to collaborating with the local Pyrmont community and the City of Sydney to transform the historic quarry site into a vibrant precinct that will benefit both the local community and its future residents,” comments Harvard Shen, Director of Landream.

Leveraging its proximity to Pyrmont, Blackwattle Bay, New Sydney Fish Market, the University Precinct, Darling Harbour and the Sydney CBD Precinct, this landmark development aims to establish itself as a sought-after destination, fostering seamless connectivity between Pyrmont and the Sydney CBD.

Construction at 14-26 Wattle Street, Pyrmont, is scheduled to commence by the end of 2024.
