The NSW Government has announced a key partnership with a consortium to drive forward the next phase in the revitalisation of Australia’s waterfront to the world, Circular Quay.
Transport for NSW Director, Eastern Harbour City, Julie Sundqvist was pleased to reveal CQC Partners, a consortium that includes companies Lendlease Construction, Capella Capital and BESIX Watpac, has been chosen as the Planning and Design Partner for this major Sydney renewal investment.
“This partnership is a major milestone for Circular Quay’s revitalisation and brings us one step closer to transforming the centrepiece of Sydney’s beautiful harbour,” Ms Sundqvist said.
“CQC will help to create a more dynamic precinct for visitors and locals to enjoy, and further elevate Circular Quay’s status as a stunning and unique destination revered globally.
“CQC includes award-winning Australian and international designers, as well as First Nations advisors to ensure the plans have a strong cultural connection with Circular Quay’s rich history and heritage.
“We look forward to working with CQC to deliver new and improved public spaces, connections, infrastructure and buildings that will breathe fresh life into one of Australia’s most visited destinations and a critical transport interchange in the heart of Sydney.”
The proposed revitalisation to Circular Quay includes building new wharves, upgrading the train station, delivering new places for people to eat, drink and shop, creating more active transport connections and improving public green spaces for people to enjoy.
Detailed design, community consultation and statutory planning will commence in 2023.
