Western Gateway Precinct, Bondi Junction
New South Wales
Atlas was engaged by key stakeholders in this precinct to prepare an Urban Design Report considering the existing and likely future opportunities for development in the precinct as well as whether the site and precinct has capacity for increased height and development yield. This area has not undergone redevelopment since the construction of Syd Einfeld Drive (1979) and the redevelopment of the precinct provides a unique opportunity for the centre and its surroundings.
The Urban Design Report reviews the Local Environment Plan controls applicable in the precinct, with in particular regard to height and density and associated public domain impacts. This assessment, along with a detailed analysis of the site, results in a Vision for the precinct. This vision is supported by a series of identified urban design opportunities which improve the area and the public realm. These opportunities suggest principles for height and density, with variation to the current controls for the precinct.
