About Redfern Waterloo
UrbanGrowth NSW Development Corporation facilitates the orderly and economic development of land in the Redfern Waterloo Growth Centre. Our focus supports NSW Government land owners in three projects:
Waterloo Metro Quarter
UrbanGrowth NSW is working with Sydney Metro to deliver the Waterloo Metro Quarter, an unparalleled opportunity to make Waterloo one of the most connected and attractive inner-city places to live, work and visit. The Waterloo Metro Quarter will deliver new homes, shops, community health services and a new public plaza above the new Waterloo Metro station. The NSW Government has integrated the metro station, allowing the underground metro station and development above and adjacent, to be built at the same time to a create a vibrant mixed use precinct.

We are assisting NSW Land and Housing Corporation prepare a masterplan of the Waterloo Estate to improve and increase social housing, provide more affordable and private housing and deliver other social benefits including improved services, shops, community facilities, better transport and jobs.
The Waterloo Metro Quarter and social housing estate are being planned in parallel but separate processes. NSW Land and Housing Corporation has released three options for the redevelopment of the Waterloo Estate. View the options here.
The three options were tested with the community and other key stakeholders in October and November 2018. You can view the Options Testing Consultation Report here.
Following this community consultation, a preferred Masterplan will be prepared for the redevelopment of Waterloo. A draft of the preferred Masterplan will be shared with the community prior to lodging the Masterplan with the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE).
Redfern and North Eveleigh
We are collaborating with Transport for NSW to bring new life to the North Eveleigh precinct by involving the community in planning and delivering holistic renewal outcomes.
