WMK took part in an architectural design competition to revitalise the first of five phases of this urban precinct known as 'Park Sydney' by Greenland Golden Horse.
WMK's competition-winning design draws on the contexts of two diverse neighbourhoods, melding the characteristics of the adjacent medium-rise mixed-use apartments and fine grained terrace housing into a unified design solution.
Pocket parks, an important feature of Alexandria and Erskineville, have been incorporated into the design.
The centre will bring together the community with a vibrant urban marketplace, retail, sun-drenched cafes, and childcare facilities. Stovemakers Lane will create an edgy and active pedestrian connection through the site.
The first phase of Park Sydney will transform the north-east corner of a formerly industrial site into an active, leafy, and character-filled mixed-use development comprising circa 320 apartments, 4500sqm of retail and a childcare centre.
