$70 million plus Sydney Olympic Park residential site set to spark developer contest

Two three-storey office properties in Sydney’s Olympic Park have come to market as a redevelopment project.

The 14,423sqm site, which comprises 6 Parkview Drive and 102 Bennelong Parkway.

It is being marketed as Quad Two and Three, with mixed-use and apartment redevelopment potential subject to council approval.

GJS Property’s Jason Wright and Chris Bailey, in conjunction with Savills Australia’s Neil Cooke and Stuart Cox, have been appointed by Growthpoint Properties Australia to market the property via expressions of interest.

More than $70 million is tipped.

Cooke said interest was anticipated from a variety of development groups looking for a residential development play with strong underlying net income.

“There are limited opportunities capable of providing a high-quality mixed-use development situated within such close proximity of all desired amenities,” he said.

Developers will enjoy the income available during the holding period, generated from a combined 10,389sqm of Net Lettable Area in the two five-star NABERS-rated office buildings.

It has a substantial passing income of $3,800,432 per annum with all leases incorporating annual increases between 3.5 per cent and 4 per cent.

The site is zoned B4 Mixed Use under the provisions of the State Environmental Planning Policy (State Significant Precincts) 2005 but will benefit from density and height increases as part of the Sydney Olympic Park Authority (SOPA) Master Plan 2030.

The Master Plan 2030 is pending gazettal, coupled with established and proposed infrastructure.

The vendor had commissioned a feasibility study through architecture firm, Turner, which has been actively involved with the SOPA’s Master Plan 2030.

The feasibility study outlines the potential for 33,722sqm of Gross Floor Area, subject to council approval, providing up to 446 units and a building height limit of up to 15 storeys.

The agents noted Sydney CBD and district views that could be attained through a redevelopment are unlikely to be built out due to the Badu Mangroves and Bicentennial Park to the east. 

Some 18 years after the Olympics, the suburb is an established urban oasis benefitting from significant infrastructure and private investment, Mr Bailey said adding developers working on surrounding residential and mixed-use projects had succeeded in capitalising on the versatility of the precinct.
