Pavilions By Mirvac

The NSW Government’s 2030 Master Plan sets out a vision for Sydney Olympic Park that includes homes for 23,500 residents, 34,000 workers and 5000 students. Pavilions by Mirvac is the first State Significant Development at Sydney Olympic Park under the new (Draft) Master Plan (2017 Review).

The $300 million mixed-use development will provide 705 residential apartments across four buildings, ranging in height from nine to 35-storeys, 1,500sqm of retail floor space, basement parking for 655 cars and 1,025 bicycles, a new access road, and a landscaped podium.

Urbis have worked closely with Mirvac and the wider project team for more than 3 years, running a successful Design Excellence Competition, securing approval for a smaller scale development of 5 to 15 storeys and 422 apartments (under the previous 2009 Master Plan), and securing approval for early ‘site preparation’ works including demolition, infrastructure, and significant tree relocation.

The project has required a detailed understanding of the planning legislation, including draft controls and strategic directions, the Sydney Olympic Park Authority Design Excellence policy and processes, and residential design matters. Sparks+Partners, therefore was a natural choice. Planet Plumbing Group engaged us to provide BIM modelling design expertise and hydraulic engineering service. Sparks+Partners worked in close association with all the stake holders from initial design set up, authority liaison stage through to documentation and post construction stage.
