Urban Design Study, Ryde NSW

Project Description

Urban Design (Site Analysis) Study to support Mixed Use Development, Ryde NSW

We were engaged by Auxtra Pty Ltd to prepare an Urban Design (Site Analysis) Report to support a development application for an 80 unit mixed-use residential flat building in Ryde NSW (Architects PSEC Projects Services).  It is located next to St Annes Church, the 3rd oldest church in Australia so there are sensitive heritage and visual impact issues and the area is transitioning in density and height.  The report sought to justify the additional height and exceedance of controls.  We will be presenting to the Ryde Urban Design Panel in November 2014 to gain approval to lodge this application in full.
