HPG Australia has invited a host of local and international architectural firms and landscape designers to compete in a design competition for its much-awaited mixed-use development, One Sydney Park.
With its Stage 1 Masterplan now DA approved, One Sydney Park is positioned along the border of Alexandria’s
Sydney Park, offering an opportunity for purchasers to buy an apartment or terrace home placed within the recently-upgraded 44-hectare park and wetlands.
“After careful selection, we have now invited submissions from an esteemed list of four architecture teams including landscape designers, with a winner expected to be announced in early October following a determination by a panel of six including three local City of Sydney nominated panel members.” HPG’s managing director Adrian Liu said.

“The City of Sydney’s Planning Department has described this site as potentially one of the most important sites in Sydney. As such, we see that engaging some of the world’s most awarded and talented designers is warranted,” Liu said.
“We’ve invited architects who we believe will provide design solutions that will celebrate the site’s unique position directly bordering the landscape-designed Sydney Park to ensure the very best design outcome is achieved for residents and the local community. This is a site of great profile for Sydney and comparable to other uniquely positioned projects”
One Sydney Park will incorporate world-class architecture, thought-provoking public art, curated ground level retail, and an abundance of green spaces and common areas.
The development is enveloped on three sides by the landscape-designed public parkland and recreational space of Sydney Park, which holds strong cultural heritage and importance for thousands of Sydney families.
Liu said HPG is committed to establishing a precinct that cohesively aligns itself with Sydney Park and its award-winning landscaping and ecological preservation strategies to ensure that One Sydney Park complements its outstanding surrounds in every way and also embraces the local arts community.
“We are dedicated to bringing to Sydneysiders an enlivened and active destination that provides a variety of housing and retail/leisure options conducive to the unique environs within which a lucky few will be able to reside,” Liu said.
The development will include 1300sq m of mixed-use retail and will comprise approximately 400 apartments across 8 six-storey buildings. Residences will include a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, penthouses as well as unique townhouses with private internal access.
Stage 1 sales will be launched at the beginning of October this year and construction will commence in March 2018.
