Waterloo Metro Quarter
Waterloo Metro Quarter
The Metro Quarter will be integrated with the new Sydney Metro Station at Waterloo, making it one of the most well-connected inner-city places to live, work and visit. It will encompass the new Metro Station and over station development, including new homes, shops, and a community facility and plaza. The Metro Quarter Precinct is bounded by Botany Road, Cope, Raglan and Wellington Streets.
The Metro Quarter and neighbouring social housing estate are being planned at the same time.
The proposed plan for the Waterloo Metro Quarter has been informed by visioning engagement held by the NSW Land and Housing Corporation (LAHC) late last year. During that engagement process, more than 1,570 people provided feedback across more than 40 consultation events. View a report of the visioning engagement (Communities Plus website) →
Throughout May, June and July 2018, the NSW Government is undertaking the next phase of community engagement on the future plans for Waterloo.
Engagement on the Metro Quarter is happening first, followed by engagement on the Waterloo social housing estate. The redevelopment of the social housing estate is a more complex task and will be staged over 15-20 years.
Planning for and engaging with the community on the Waterloo Metro Quarter first means that shops and other services can be available earlier – from 2022 – with Metro train services from 2024.
During the visioning engagement, people spoke about the importance of creating a safe and welcoming hub for Waterloo. They sought a range of shops and services, including fresh food, spaces for health and wellbeing, a community facility, and a mix of social and affordable housing. All of these uses are included in the proposed plan for the Metro Quarter.
We are now seeking your feedback on what you would like to see at the Metro Quarter, as well as the design of the public domain, and community and cultural uses.
