Lakeside Gardens, Toukley
Barker Ryan Stewart is pleased to announce that an appeal has been upheld in the NSW Land and Environment Court for an 11 storey mixed use development at Toukley known as Lakeside Gardens.
Working on behalf of Rustrum Pty Ltd, development consent was granted for 109 units and ground floor commercial tenancies, all with basement car parking. The site will be extensively landscaped.
The estimated construction cost of the Toukley development is $39million and up to 355 equivalent full-time jobs will be created during construction as well as flow on employment.
The site of Lakeside Gardens was identified as an “iconic key site” by Central Coast Council. A main objective for this key site was to provide for a building of high architectural quality, displaying design excellence and innovative green building solutions in an iconic form.
A design competition was held for the site, with the winning design being awarded to Suters DWP, Newcastle. The 5,300m2 site is between Toukley CBD and The Beachcomber Hotel on Main Road and has an extensive frontage to Budgewoi Lake. The architects have taken full advantage of the ideal northerly aspect and the magnificent lake views. The units on the upper floors will also enjoy views out to sea and to The Entrance and beyond to the south.
Rustrum negotiated a land swap with Central Coast Council which will mean improvements to Toukley Gardens Park and will achieve extensive views of Budgewoi Lake. The park will also be expanded through to Rowland Terrace which will allow pedestrian and cycle access from Main Road through to Osbourne Park on Budgewoi Lake.
Barker Ryan Stewart assisted with the coordination of the Land and Environment Court appeal and provided expert witness and town planning services.
