Sydney Metro has shortlisted the contractors for the future Hunter Street metro station area which also includes two buildings above the station in the centre of the Sydney CBD.
The following consortia have been shortlisted to tender for the Hunter Street precinct development partner:
- The Brookfield Consortium, comprised of Brookfield Properties (Devco) Australia Brookfield Property Partners L.P., Brookfield Properties and Brookfield Asset Management); and
- The Metropolis Consortium, comprised of Hemmes Hermitage Pty Limited, Hemmes Trading Pty Limited, Mirvac Office Developments, Telado, CFT No. 8, Lendlease Development Lendlease Building)
The contract is expected to be awarded in 2024. The Hunter St precinct development partner is a first-of-its kind model that ensures the best precinct and value for money outcomes given the project’s significance.
“The shortlisted consortia have already been through a competitive procurement process, and now will get to work on detailed proposals that maximise place making outcomes and show how they will integrate the precinct and the station,’ Sydney Metro Chief Executive Peter Regan said.
The new Hunter Street metro station will revitalise Sydney’s central business district and become a transport precinct with connections to George Street, light rail, train services at Wynyard and the new Sydney Metro City & Southwest station at Martin Place.
“This is an exciting visionary project creating a seamless interchange for commuters travelling into George St with connections to light rail, train services at Wynyard and the new Sydney Metro City & Southwest station at Martin Place. There’s an opportunity with the new Hunter Street Station to create a world-class transport precinct which will become a gateway to jobs, business and tourism,” Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney David Elliott said.
The station is one of the 8 new stations to be constructed on the 24 km Sydney Metro West underground line which will connect Greater Parramatta and the Sydney CBD.
The construction started on Sydney Metro West in 2020 at The Bays station with the project on track to be completed by 2030. When completed, the metro line will provide faster and more frequent access to major employment and education centres like Parramatta and Sydney Olympic Park.
In 2030, Sydney will have a network of four metro lines totalling 113 km served by 46 stations.
