The NSW government has engaged Lendlease to deliver a new Sydney Metro railway station and commercial tower to be located at the intersection of Miller and Berry streets in North Sydney. It will also neighbour a heritage-listed, curtain wall skyscraper designed by Bates, Smart and McCutcheon for MLC, built in 1957
The concept plan for the development at Victoria Cross station – designed by Bates Smart for Transport for NSW – was approved in December 2018. Bates Smart will join the Lendlease consortium as design architect for the office tower and accompanying retail precinct while Cox Architecture will design the station and Aspect Studios will design the public domain.
The Victoria Cross Station will be a landmark in the heart of North Sydney’s business district and will include retail spaces and office space across 40 floors that will likely be worth close to $1 billion upon completion.
The Victoria Cross integrated station development is the first project to be awarded through the Transport for NSW tender process. The detailed planning is expected to be submitted for assessment in May 2019.
