Way back in 2007, Frasers began meeting with local residents to ask, ‘What is your dream for the future of Chippendale?’ Frasers hosted a series of community consultation and information events in 2007 and 2008, with hundreds of local community members, local businesses and the many planning and infrastructure stakeholders involved in a project of this complexity.
As a result, the masterplan at Central Park was revised and perfected in response to community feedback, so that its final incarnation was readily approved by the NSW Department of Planning in February 2009. Project Applications have since been submitted for individual buildings or stages of work, consistent with the approved concept plan or approved modifications of the concept plan.
Up to 77% of Central Park’s buildings will now deliver residential apartments, and approximately 23% will deliver an eclectic array of commercial spaces, cafes, restaurants, community amenities and a major new retail hub. A 6,400 sqm public park, Chippendale Green, opened in December 2012 and now welcomes nearby communities into Central Park. An on-site water recycling plant, an on-site tri-generation energy plant and an enormous GoGet car-share 'SuperPod' will bring residents a step closer to achieving their dream of living a more sustainable lifestyle.
Joint venture partners Frasers Property and Sekisui House have continued to brief local communities over time via information days, consultations, newsletters, Facebook and this web site.
Current community engagement events:
