The site at 600-660 Elizabeth Street Redfern, opposite Redfern Oval, has been nominated as a State Significant precinct. The site has the potential to deliver social, affordable and private housing in inner city Sydney.

The Land and Housing Corporation will proceed to an Expression of Interest (EOI) in the coming months.

600-660 Elizabeth Street, Redfern is in a high demand area, less than 3 km from Sydney CBD. Bounded by Elizabeth, Phillip, Walker and Kettle streets, the site is well situated for future residents, with easy access to Redfern Station and the proposed Waterloo Metro, local employment, education and support services, as well as retail outlets.

The Land and Housing Corporation will redevelop Elizabeth Street, Redfern to provide more social, affordable and private housing. In the coming months an Expression of Interest process will be carried out.

Organisations who have registered their interest in the Redfern site will be notified when the Expression of Interest process is open. Organisations who did not submit a Registration of Interest will not be prevented from participating in the Expression of Interest phase.

State Significant Precinct

In September 2017 the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) nominated Elizabeth Street, Redfern as a State Significant Precinct (SSP) based on its economic and social value. The Study Requirements for Elizabeth Street, Redfern to inform the planning process was issued in January 2018. 

NSW Land and Housing Corporation has started the technical studies set out in the Study Requirements and will then prepare a redevelopment proposal. Community feedback will be sought at key stages in the planning process.
