Final contract awarded for Crows Nest over station development
Sydney Metro has awarded the contract for the final piece in the puzzle for the new metro station at Crows Nest, with the local economy set to benefit from new housing and job opportunities.
The contract for the air rights above Crows Nest Station, which has been awarded to Thirdi Group, includes a 21-storey commercial office building on the corner of Pacific Highway, Hume Street and Oxley Street, and 17-storey residential building on the corner of Pacific Highway and Hume Street above the station.
The new buildings will capitalise on easy access to the new Crows Nest Station, providing new jobs in the area, a range of new housing options and easy access to two major hospitals.
Sydney Metro has been working with the community since 2017 to refine the buildings above the Station, with community feedback helping to reduce the building height, reduce the number of car spaces and change the building use to increase local employment opportunities.
The community will again have the opportunity to provide feedback when Thirdi Group exhibits the detailed Stage 2 development application prior to starting construction.
When complete, there will be three new buildings above Crows Nest Station. A W Edwards, the Crows Nest Station contractor, is delivering a nine-storey commercial office building on the corner of Hume Street and Clarke Street.
When Crows Nest Station opens in 2024, the local community will have fast and direct access to the Sydney CBD, with a trip to Martin Place taking only seven minutes.
