The Central Coast Quarter development at 26 Mann St, Gosford, is a step closer, with the lodgement of a masterplan DA by the St Hilliers group with the Department of Planning.
St Hilliers Executive Chairman, Tim Casey, said the group was consolidating its vision for the revitalisation of the Gosford CBD.
He said community and stakeholder feedback had so far been very positive for the integrated, mixed use precinct, comprising a hotel, residential apartments, food, beverage and retail outlets, and multiple public thoroughfares.
“This is an exciting time for Gosford and the wider Central Coast region,” Casey said.
“Our masterplan DA for Central Coast Quarter is designed to bring the southern end of Mann St alive, and in turn create a synergised, multi-purpose hub that locals can be proud of.
“We have welcomed community feedback throughout the course of the project and the response has been very encouraging.
“The consensus has been that the community appreciates that we will be prioritising local vendors and bringing jobs to the region through the project.
“Bringing much needed food and beverage outlets to the heart of Gosford has also been noted as a positive, as has the hotel that is proposed for the site.
“I think the Central Coast is eager to see Gosford thrive, and with the lodging of this DA, we are one step closer to seeing that happen.”
The masterplan DA will soon be on public exhibition, having evolved since early consultation began in 2017, to better reflect the State Environment Planning Policy (Gosford City Centre) 2018.
It is designed to complement nearby projects, including the planned redevelopment of Leagues Club Field.
