Sydney Metro’s Pitt Street Integrated Station Development Contract

Ashurst has advised Sydney Metro on their contract with a consortium of Oxford Properties, CPB Contractors and Grocon to design and build the Pitt Street Integrated Station Development, in support of the Sydney Metro project, Australia’s biggest public transport project.

Pitt Street Station is strategically located at the junction of Sydney’s southern CBD and the Midtown retail precinct, close to mixed employment, residential, entertainment, cultural and events-based activities within the southern Sydney CBD and Chinatown.

The integrated station development includes a 39-storey commercial office building above the northern entry to the new Pitt Street metro station on Park Street between Pitt and Castlereagh streets, and a 39-storey residential build-to-rent building above the southern entry to the station near the corner of Bathurst and Pitt streets.

The metro station at Pitt Street serves the retail areas on George and Pitt streets, the civic and entertainment uses on George Street and the emerging southern Sydney CBD residential developments between Park Street and Belmore Park. The station also provides relief to Town Hall Station, and allows interchange onto other modes of public transport including light rail and buses.
