Proposal to change the height control for 505–523 George Street, Sydney

Closed for comment

In August 2015 Council and the Central Sydney Planning Committee considered report on the outcomes of the public exhibition, and approved the exhibited Planning Proposal and draft development control plan. The report on the outcomes of exhibition can be found at Item 3.

The City of Sydney invites your comments on a proposal to change the building-height control for 505-523 George Street, Sydney. The current height control for this site allows for a commercial and retail podium development and 2 towers up to 150 metres high.

The change, which the land owner requested, would increase the height control so a single residential tower could be built above a commercial and retail podium up to a height of 260 metres.

Draft planning agreement and proposed LEP and DCP amendments

We also seek your comments on a draft planning agreement under which this site's land owner would dedicate part of the podium area to the City of Sydney for community facilities. These facilities would include 2 childcare centres, a community meeting room and toilets available for public use.

The documents on public exhibition include the draft planning agreement and a planning proposal that would amend Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012. The exhibition also includes a draft amendment to Sydney Development Control Plan 2012 that would provide detailed design guidance for development on the site.

On exhibition

You can download the draft planning agreement, and proposed LEP and DCP amendment information from the document library on this page, or you can view printed copies until 6pm Tuesday 9 June 2015 at:

One Stop Shop (CBD)
Level 2, Town Hall House
456 Kent Street, Sydney

Monday–Friday: 8am–6pm
