Toplace could join a long list of developers in Mascot after its $111 million project received a “deferred commencement” from the Sydney East City Planning Panel.
Four buildings, up to seven-storeys with 96 hotel rooms, 444 serviced apartments, restaurant, commercial tenancies and basement parking were planned for the site at 146-154A O’Riordan Street.
The panel gave Toplace six months to gain a neighbour’s approval to carry out stormwater work at the property on 63-273 King Street occupied by catering company Avia Flight Services.
The privately-owned construction and property development company chose PTW Architects for the design on the 17,021sq m site adjoining Lionel Bowen Park.
In order to carry out the build a series of multi-unit warehouses currently on the site would have to be demolished.
The plans also included 426sq m of retail space, 196sq m commercial floor area and 288sq m of restaurant floor area.
The hotel would have a bar and lounge, conference room, lounge and function room as well as office area.
PTW Architects paired with Toplace for 888 Bourke Street, Zetland for two mid-rise residential buildings.
This is the architecture team who also designed two nearby properties for Harry Triguboff's Meriton group two 13-level buildings for 256 Coward Street as well as the $250 million Mascot Central project.
Toplace, led by Jean Nassif, also recently stepped in to help Ralan Group build and offer 1,600 unsecured creditors new apartments following William O'Dwyer’s company entering a dramatic $550 million collapse.
