NEWTOWN MULTI-USE
DEVELOPMENT

Quattro were originally appointed as lead consultant for the construction phase services for the redevelopment of an existing vacant art deco building into a new grocery store.
 

This included the design of associated trading area; back of house & staff facilities; loading dock & car park.


Appointed by Broxtan Construction, Quattro co-ordinated the consultant’s proposals, client requests and tenant requirements. Working closely with City of Sydney Council,
Quattro addressed DA Conditions and submitted a Section 96 application to provide a more simplified construction solution and new mezzanine level.


The upgraded building shell would allow for the easy integration of fire, power, stormwater and BCA requirements. This ensured the building would be future-proofed to meet current standards while maintaining the
original 1940’s character. The new grocery store will contribute to the continuing urban renewal of this area.

 

Quattro were then asked to develop a residential scheme to provide 2 storeys of 20 studio, 1 & 2 bed apartments above the proposed grocery store.
 

The proposed residential units are designed to meet SEPP 65 requirements and provide set-backs to from boundaries and all levels. The design enables all unit to have gardens open to the sky and creates voids for natural daylight access throught. The residential scheme also provides: communal terraces, bike storage and lift access throughout; a range of detailed unit plans, with accessible units also provided; contemporary design and materials for city apartments; and compliance with SEPP 65, City of Sydney and "Vision Sydney" requirements.
