Carter Street - Phase 1Lidcombe NSW Australia
The Carter Street Precinct is bounded by Uhrig Rd to the west, Carter Street to the south, Bernie Ave to the east, and Sydney Olympic park to the north. This site forms an integral part of the broader Sydney Olympic Park Strategic centre, delivering a mix of housing, employment and retail services within close proximity to a public transport network.
The “focal point” of the development will be a public domain offering that will consist of a rich network of pedestrian centric spaces, anchored by two larger open spaces at either end of the site. This “Green Ribbon” will provide opportunities for quality “themed” landscaping, improved passive surveillance, and public art associated with the precinct.
SJB were involved in Phase 1 and 2 of the precinct. Phase 1 consists of a 2-3 storey podium with two 22 storey towers. Phase 2 involves 2 buildings separated with a pedestrian through-site link, each with a 4-5 storey podium and two 12-13 storey towers.
Each of the three buildings have a differing architectural language and use robust materials and natural colours to achieve an individual presence and provide identifiable landmark gestures to the site.
