Green Square project: Bridgehill applies for three towers

March 24, 2015

Bridge­hill Group has applied to build 350 apartments in the first-stage of its $500 million-plus project in Sydney’s Green Square precinct.

The group bought a former council depot site in 2013 and said at the time it aimed to build about 780 apartments on the 1.79ha ­parcel, which is near the Green Square railway station.

A report filed to the City of Sydney Council, compiled by Urbis town planning consultants, shows the first stage of the project will have three buildings of between nine and 15 storeys.

Designs by SJB Architects were chosen from an architec­tural competition. Construction is expected to cost more than $105m. The total project to be undertaken by Bridgehill is expected to yield seven or eight buildings.

The Green Square town centre, in Sydney’s inner south, is an $8 billion urban renewal project with a number of major dev­elopers. Mirvac Group and the NSW government will deliver about 2000 apartments, up to 14,000sq m of retail space and about 50,000sq m of office space in the precinct.

Bridgehill has completed two apartment projects in Sydney’s Rhodes, and is constructing a unit block in North Sydney. It recently began sales of its Esprit project in inner-city Mascot.
