Shortlist is announced for Hunter Street Station and precinct

The future Sydney Metro Hunter Street Station is another step closer, with the NSW Government shortlisting two consortia to tender for the delivery of the landmark station, and two buildings above, in the heart of the Sydney CBD. 

Minister for Transport, Veterans and Western Sydney David Elliott announced the shortlist this week at a Sydney Metro West industry briefing. He said the new Hunter Street Station, part of the Sydney Metro West project, would revitalise Sydney’s CBD. 

“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,” Elliott said. 

“Sydney Metro is a game changer for Sydney – revitalising places, reducing travel times and providing a boost for local businesses. 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.” 

Selection of the successful tenderer will include consideration of how they will improve the local area and create a vibrant precinct and a sense of place, not just a station. 

The two successful shortlisted consortia to tender for the Hunter Street Precinct Development Partner are: 

  • The Brookfield Consortium (comprised of Brookfield Properties (Devco) Australia Pty Ltd 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 Pty Ltd, Telado Pty Ltd, CFT No. 8 Pty Limited, Lendlease Development Pty Ltd, Lendlease Building Pty Ltd) 

Sydney Metro Chief Executive Peter Regan said the Hunter St Precinct Development Partner was a first-of-its kind model that ensured 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,” Regan said. 

The Hunter Street Precinct Development Partner contract is expected to be awarded in 2024. 

Construction started on Sydney Metro West in 2020, with the project on track to be completed by 2030. In 2030, Sydney will have a network of four metro lines, 46 stations and 113km of new metro rail.
