An exciting, new leisure and entertainment precinct at Macquarie Centre

An amended Development Application (DA) for  ‘The Herring Road Corner Podium’ has been lodged to transform Macquarie Centre into a world class leisure and entertainment precinct by managers of the centre, AMP Capital.

A centre piece of the DA is an Olympic sized ice rink, which has an iconic design and is located at the ‘front door’ of the centre. We listened to the community and ice rink user groups and are excited to share our plans that include a new Olympic sized ice rink. We have also undertaken thorough and robust engagement with key ice rink users to understand their needs and extensive architectural and engineering investigations. This input has been critical to informing the amended DA.

A VIBRANT, NEW ENTERTAINMENT DESTINATION

Macquarie Centre is building on their reputation as a destination for exciting and unique entertainment and are evolving to be a destination for our wider community – offering diverse activities and attractions.

Alongside the new Olympic sized ice rink, the DA also seeks approval for the:

  • creation of Station Plaza, a new outdoor civic space;
  • landscaping and public domain improvements;
  • new pedestrian access points;
  • construction of a new retail podium, basement parking and roof deck parking providing an additional 500 car parking spaces; and
  • removal of one vehicular crossover.

Macquarie Centre recognises the desire of City of Ryde Council to place a heritage listing to maintain an Olympic sized ice rink at the centre, and has prepared and lodged an amended Development Application which recognises the ice rink’s significance to the community.

Your feedback is important, and as a result, there will be an exhibition period set, to provide feedback through various forums. Macquarie Centre will share more information about this as it becomes available.
