The revitalization of the southern end of Mann St, Gosford, is a step closer with property group St Hilliers to lodge a masterplan DA for its Central Coast Quarter in September.
Formulated following community consultation since late 2017, the masterplan will propose an integrated mixed-use precinct with a hotel, residential apartments, food, beverage and retail outlets and multiple public thoroughfares on a site adjacent to the finance building.
Development Manager, Justyn Ng, said he was excited about lodging the concept masterplan DA which “will reinforce St Hilliers’ vision for revitalisation of the city centre”.
“We have been busy progressing discussions with all key stakeholders regarding the development of the remainder of the site at 26 Mann Street,” Ng said.
“Through initial community consultation and feedback, we have created a concept for the site which seeks to provide much needed facilities and services for the region and also align with the broader plans to revitalise Gosford.
“The Central Coast Quarter masterplan has been designed to create a fully mixed-use precinct that will provide a variety of new offerings for visitors and locals.”
Ng said Mann St, which runs directly through the centre of the Gosford CBD, is an important connection between the waterfront, stadium precinct, public parks, train station and the CBD.
“St Hilliers’ vision is to create a precinct space that focuses on bringing together locals, the landscape and the waterfront in one synergised, multi-purpose hub,” he said.
“We are particularly excited that the masterplan includes a hotel on the site, as we know that Gosford and the broader Central Coast community has long had a vision for a quality hotel to be developed in the Gosford CBD.
“The benefits of a revitalised and more functional city centre will be seen across the entire Central Coast.”
The proposed precinct will abut Leagues Club Field, which is set for a major revamp by the State Government.
Ng said St Hilliers was collaborating with the Government to ensure that the two projects complement each other.
