Won through a competitive design process, this project is a large scale multi-residential project on the current site of Channel 9 Headquarters in Willoughby, Sydney.
Under the direction of client LEPC9, CHROFI led masterplanning of 460 new dwellings and commercial spaces across 10 buildings, approved within a complex planning framework. The masterplan demonstrates design excellence, strong commercial viability, an innovative approach and a sensitive response to an established suburban context.
Intelligent place making, with a focus on significant public benefit, has created a robust framework for the new development. The scheme offers significant public open space, maintains the maximum height set by the approval, improves solar access to adjoining dwellings and creates a more successful built form relationship with the surrounding context.
In this project, community and authority consultation has been a crucial focus. Clear visual communication of the public benefit and urban design ideals, from the simple diagrams to visionary renders, has ensured the core principles have been understood by all.
In 2020, Mirvac acquired the site from LEPC9 and CHROFI is pleased to be a part of this exciting new chapter working in collaboration with Mirvac to deliver this significant North Shore residential precinct.
