Rail Bridge Row is located adjacent to the new Crown Street Light Rail Stop and has the potential to deliver a unique mixed-use development, under a predominantly B4 Mixed Uses land use zone. The Site is located east of the intersection of Hunter Street and Darby Street and in close proximity to Newcastle Harbour. A public plaza is identified to the immediate west of the site, providing a strategic link between Hunter Street and the foreshore. The site has significant frontage to Hunter Street, as well as a second frontage to Argyle Street enabling for vehicle access via an extension to this street.
The unique dimensions of the site require a creative and innovative architectural design outcome to provide for a built form that will delineate Hunter Street and respond to the unique heritage aspects of the site. Suggested designs could provide for residential uses on the upper floor/s, with commercial and retail spaces on the ground floor. This outcome would enhance the activation and vibrancy of a revitalised Hunter Street and take advantage of the pedestrian connections of the Crown Street Light Rail Stop.
The Disposal Process seeks to identify Respondents who will outline their vision for the site with regard to the selection criteria and demonstrate their experience and capability to deliver high quality development outcomes.
Details on the Site and associated Disposal Process are included in this EOI document and the accompanying Appendices. Respondents are encouraged to closely review this information and ensure that any Proposal submitted in response to the EOI complies with the requirements.
