$500M state-of-the-art technology hub

On 1 February 2018, Connect member Stockland announced its masterplan vision for a $500 million state-of-the-art technology hub at Macquarie Park in Sydney, which proposes 16,500 square metres of office, retail, learning and co-working areas overlooking a central green space and world-class conference facilities.

Located in the heart of Macquarie Park between 17 Khartoum Road and 39 Talavera Road the precinct will house cafes, restaurants, services and convenience retail on the ground floor of each building. The proposal also features a gym and bike storage, end of trip facilities, as well as childcare and medical services on completion – importantly, all within in walking distance to public transport.

With a strong focus on sustainability, the development design will incorporate aspects of WELL building standards, a performance based system that measures the impact of the built environment across seven categories of human health including comfort, mind and wellbeing, fitness, nutrition, air quality, light and water.
