Merrylands Master PlanMerrylands NSW Australia
SJB was appointed by Holroyd City Council to undertake a built form study of Merrylands Centre between Merrylands Road and MacFarlane Street. The key objective of the study was to assess Council’s current planning controls and identify the opportunities to create the appropriate built form outcomes that can achieve the vision for the Merrylands Centre.
Merrylands is a gateway to one of the fastest growing regions in Australia, and the centre is being placed under increasing pressure to provide more housing choice within close proximity to existing services.
The built form study was informed by SJB’s built form typologies, which are based on projects recently delivered, approved or in the design process. These project examples use realistic GBA (Gross Building Area) to GFA (Gross Floor Area) to NSA (Net Saleable Area) efficiencies to ensure that a high quality product is achievable within proposed building envelopes which reflects market demand.
