The NSW Government 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.
Member for Willoughby Tim James said the NSW Government awarded the contract for the air rights above Crows Nest Station to ‘Thirdi Group’.
“The signing of this contract for the air rights above Crows Nest Station 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,” Mr James said.
“When completed, 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.”
“The NSW Government is committed to delivering critical public transport infrastructure and precincts around it which will make life easier for commuters to seamlessly travel from A to B,”
“The new over station buildings will capitalise on easy access to Sydney Metro’s Crows Nest Station, providing jobs in the area, a range of new housing options and faster access to two major hospitals.”
“The Sydney Metro project and over station development will deliver major benefits to the Crows Nest community enabling a new level of connectivity for residents and workers,”
“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 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.
