Gibbons - Regent Street Precinct

This area bounded in the north by Lawson Square, in the south by Margaret St, in the east by regent Street and by the railway line in the west. It is to be developed as the commercial core of Redfern with maximum heights changing from 4 storeys to 2-18 storeys and FSR going from 2:1 and 3:1 to 7:1 (slightly lower than developments permitted around Central railway station). The Final RWA zoning creates 3 areas for buildings rising to 18 storeys from 5 storey podiums between Regent and Gibbons Streets opposite a 14 story building rising from a 3-5 story podium on the railway side of Gibbons Street. Marian park is retained as a park and a civic space is created between the station and Gibbons St. No solution has currently been found for the regional traffic that separates Redfern and Regent Sts from the station although some light and clearway changes could lessen impact and a cut and cover on Gibbons Street is again being considered. Zoning is to be Business Zone – Commercial Core.
