Waterloo represents a diverse community of cultures. It has already seen cycles of renewal, each bringing changes to the building stock and public domain to suit different community needs – an urban fabric that is diverse, evident in the adjacent urban renewal areas of Green Square, Redfern, and Waterloo Metro.
Waterloo Estate seeks to ensure future generations can thrive and build upon this connected community. It will provide new parks and public domain, retail and services, and integrated social, affordable and private housing in a range of building types and scales.
As a gateway to Waterloo and the surrounding neighbourhoods of Redfern and Eveleigh, the public domain is at the heart of the new community, creating a place that is activated, vibrant and pedestrian-focused.
Through a collaborative process including Turf, Roberts Day, Tribe Studio and Breathe Architecture; Waterloo Estate will provide a place for people, a home for residents, a destination for visitors and a workplace for commuters.
