Multi-residential towers are always a complex journey with this project being no different.
Significant challenges related to the nearby rail infrastructure were overcome and excellent construction quality delivered – a testament to the dedicated team of Gencorp and Dickson Rothschild.
Together with its striking design and finishes, spacious apartments, and enduring build quality, “The One” is creating a new benchmark for apartment living in rapidly growing Hurstville.
Our Technical Director and Associate, Fergus Cumming, is known for his tenacity to overcome challenges and his attention to detail, and he has successfully navigated this journey many times with our clients. He has achieved this yet again for the “The One”.
Set amongst the edgy urban street setting of Inner West Sydney, Brick Lane is hard to miss.
Its design is conscious of the creative, work-live character of the neighbourhood and it is built on sustainably-minded feature. Attractive articulated façades, massing sensitive to its surrounds and a carefully designed through-link to activate the evolving streets of St Peters, make it the perfect addition to the development of the area.
The multi-disciplinary Architecture, Planning, Urban Design and Marketing team at Dickson Rothschild was led by our Managing Director, Nigel Dickson and our Technical Director and Associate, Fergus Cumming.
Congratulations on a successful Marsden Park subdivision approval
Congratulations to the project team for a newly consented neighbourhood subdivision in Sydney’s north west growth centre.
The subdivision comprises of 80+ much needed residential lots with a wide range of lot sizes to achieve housing diversity – large lot detached housing coupled with environmental conservation land, small lot detached housing and attached housing. The masterplan achieves a relatively compact urban form within a low-density zone while managing an important environmental conservation area very near a growing town centre and planned metro rail station.
Infrastructure development has been carefully considered with temporary and permanent solutions so authorities can finalise their road widening and drainage upgrades without relying on the subdivision and visa versa.
The proposal was fast-tracked through the Land and Environment Court with the full court hearing being adjourned to a S34 hearing when the experts resolved all contentions just days prior to the hearing, resulting in a speedy consent that arrived prior to developer contributions being increased dramatically from 1 July.
Dickson Rothschild were the Urban Designers and Planners for the project.
Dickson Rothschild works tirelessly for our clients including gaining a recent modification consent for this boutique residential apartment building on beautiful Rose Bay waterfront. Our Architects and Planners created additional value with an extra unit, whilst enhancing a sensitive and attractive design suited.

Fast Track Assessments
The NSW Government’s new Planning System Acceleration Programme announced the first 24 projects to undergo the fast-tracked assessment process on 28 April 2020. It is one of several responses to keep the economy moving in the challenging COVID-19 pandemic environment.
Projects must meet three essential criteria:
Does the project create jobs during construction and ongoing?
Can decision on the project be made quickly? Can the project commence within six months, if DA approval is received or if a planning proposal is successful?
Can the project strongly deliver or support public benefits?
The process does not only work for ‘big projects’ such as State Significant Developments and Infrastructure projects, major projects, and planning proposals, but for any project that fits the above criteria.
Dickson Rothschild are actively working on accessing the Planning System Acceleration Programme for a number of clients including in Hurstville and on the Central Coast, and for projects ranging from $20m to $200m in construction build.
If you want to discuss your project, please contact our Urban Planning team on 02 8540 8720.
Hill Thalis Architects designed this attractive alterations and additions to an existing shop and residence in Randwick. Our Associate, Urban Planning – Phillip Bull – provided the planning support resulting in a consent in 2018 for improvements to the ground floor space and two apartments in an R2 low Density Residential zone.
The planning arguments were strong enough for Council and the Randwick Planning Panel to agree to a variation to the site floor space control and nil parking for the units.#architecture#residential#buildings#apartments#urbanplanning#planning#property#commercial

Circle Online Industry Roundtable –
Urban Planning, Law, Valuation and Real Estate Investment & Financing
Thank you Wealth PI, for inviting Dickson Rothschild Associate, Stacy Zhang, to participate in this stimulating round table discussion on the evolution of urban planning, law, valuation and real estate in Australia in light of the current epidemic.
A large audience tuned in to listen to four different perspectives on this topical area, and answers were offered on burning questions, such as:
Will a more rapid and flexible urban planning guide and approval system evolve after the epidemic?
Is Australia’s “big infrastructure era” coming?
Under the “epidemic economy” what are the investment opportunities against the trend?

Our Associate – Phillip Bull – is often working with other architectural practices to provide the planning expertise required for infill opportunities in inner-Sydney. Phil has over twenty-five years of experience in Council and the private sector and excels in these complex projects.

A consent was received in 2020.
