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 the Waterloo Estate are being planned in parallel but separate processes.
Following extensive community consultation with residents and other stakeholders, the NSW Government has released its preferred masterplan for the future of the Waterloo Estate.
The masterplan will provide new and modern social and affordable housing, mixed with private housing in a well-located community close to the new Waterloo Station and Metro Quarter. Over the next 15-20 years, the masterplan will guide the development of about 6,800 new homes with 60 percent of new buildings being 7 storeys or lower.
Of the total dwellings, 35 percent will be social and affordable housing and the affordable housing will be owned in perpetuity.
There will also be three hectares of safe open spaces, including new public parks and landscaped boulevards. The parks will provide residents and visitors with a place to celebrate events and enjoy outdoor activities. George Street will be transformed into a 20-25m wide tree-lined pedestrian boulevard with water features and good lighting, providing a safe and enjoyable walking experience.
