Marrickville Community Hub and Library

At its meeting on16 September 2014, Council resolved to proceed to the next stage which is creating a tender specification for the whole of the old Marrickville Hospital site.  The specification will be based on recent community feedback on the concepts provided by the four developers selected by Council from a comprehensive Expression of Interest process.

Council resolved to deliver the Community Hub and Library as a separate civic precinct, 60 car spaces, 1200m2 of open space on the corner of Marrickville Road and Livingstone Road and 4% affordable housing from the proceeds of the development of the balance of the site.

The Community Hub and Library will be based on the competition-winning BVN design from 2012.

Consultation for this stage has concluded

Council has unanimously chosen four preferred proponents to proceed to the next stage of the development of the former Marrickville Hospital site.

The prerferred proponents are Mirvac, Built/Stamford, Toga Group, and Walker Corporation. Each have provided concept drawings to show how the site could be developed at no cost to Council.  We invite community feedback that will help to design a tender specification. This will guide the proponents in submitting formal tenders later this year.

 

How did Council choose the four successful proponents?

We convened an evaluation panel which recommended the successful proponents based on their ability to understand the client brief and to finance the project. The elected Council accepted that recommendation at its July meeting.

Each proponent presented concepts that at no cost to Council:

  • Provide the shell of a Community Hub and Library
    (ie. the developer provides the structure. Council will be responsible for and pay for the fit-out which includes interior partitions, furniture, equipment and services connections).
  • Provide 60 car spaces
  • Include 1,200 m2 of open space
  • Contain four per cent affordable housing


Council wants the community’s help to decide:

What should the development of the former Marrickville Hospital site deliver for the community? 

The elected Council will use community feedback, along with input from the evaluation panel to determine the tender specification.  


How can I have my say?

Please view the concepts online or at Marrickville Library and Council’s Administration Centre. Then complete the submission form. The closing date for submissions is 20 August 2014.

We are not asking for you to choose your preferred concept. We want to determine what you value about the concepts and what the development of the site should deliver for the community. The elected Council may select some, all, or none of the elements from each of these concepts.

The final tender specification will include the location and extent of residential buildings, open space, affordable housing and car spaces as well as whether the Community Hub and Library will be separate or integrated, and whether to keep the terraces on Livingstone Road.


Where can I view the concepts?
