Design Competition Launched for Pagewood

Wednesday, 30th October 2013

Botany Bay Council has announced that construction will commence on a masterplanned community in Pagewood after a design competition between top-tier architecture firms.

Three award-winning Sydney architecture firms will partake in the competition to shape Pagewood's newest community development by Meriton, which will encompass a series of four-to 14-storey buildings including retail shops and childcare facilities.

"This is an important site in the City of Botany Bay," said Mayor Ben Keneally. 

"It is a key entry point into our City.  It is good news that Meriton have offered to launch a design competition.  In having a design competition, Council expects to see a good quality development that enhances and contributes to our local area."

The proposal, the only large development space of its kind in Pagewood, represents a significant investment by Meriton, who will build more than 2,000 apartments at the former Brittish Tobacco site.  The apartments, catering to a mix of families, couples and single-person households, will fill an urgent need for more housing and be a welcome addition to the neighbouring Eastgardens Shopping Centre, enhancing Pagewood's reputation as a vibrant urban precinct.

Surrounding infrastructure such as roads and parklands will also be upgraded as a result of the new residential hub.  The site is surrounded by golf courses and open space on one side, and the Eastgardens Shopping Centre on the other, meaning the apartments will offer "the best of both worlds," according to Meriton managing director Harry Triguboff.

"Given the importance of this site, we've volunteered to embark on a design competition for the first stage of this development to ensure the best possible design outcome," says Mr Triguboff.

The design competition represents an opportunity to place Pagewood truly on the map with a visionary development that will lift and secure the appeal of the region for years to come.  Previous competition winners have included Sydney firms Fender Katsalidis, Tony Caro Architects and the legendary Harry Seidler & Assosciates.

The winning design will be determined by a panel comprising members of the Botany Bay City Council, Meriton Group and an independent architect.

A public park to preserve the memory of a local luminary will also be announced.
