11 Mosbri CrescentNewcastle NSW Australia
SJB was appointed by Nine Network Australia to prepare an Urban Design Study for the NBN Studio at 11 Mosbri Crescent, The Hill, Newcastle. The purpose of the study was to test the development capacity of the site and suitability for future residential uses, and in the process determine appropriate amendments to the Newcastle LEP 2012 Maps for Land Use, Height and Floor Space Ratio.
This study includes analysis of the site, its immediate and broader urban contexts, focusing specifically on the site’s integration with the surrounding movement network, open spaces and landscape, and built form character.
Three concept options for the site were prepared with a preferred option identified and assessed in terms of the overshadowing and visual impact on the surrounding context. These options were presented to Council and amendments to the preferred option made to respond to preliminary feedback.
