CENTRAL COAST QUARTER ACTIVATION

Much needed boost to CBD
THE St Hilliers development at 32 Mann St, Gosford, is taking shape and now has a name.

Central Coast Quarter is designed to activate the southern end of Mann Street, bringing life to the main street of the CBD, which connects it to the waterfront, the stadium precinct and the train station.
 
It will bring some much needed facilities to the CBD with a coastal twist, including an array of food and retail offerings as well as new entertainment hubs and office space for 300 government employees.
 
The development of Central Coast Quarter is in line with the State Government’s Urban Design Implementation Framework for the renewal of the city centre.
 
“It is exciting that the UDIF is starting to provide a clearer picture of what Gosford is to become, breaking down the area into three distinct precincts – Kibble Park, City North and City South,” St Hilliers Property Development and Investment Manager Mark Dixon said.
 
“32 Mann Street is an important part of this revitalisation and occupies the majority of the City South precinct which we are keen to continue to actively contribute to with the launch of Central Coast Quarter.”
 
The developers aim to contribute to the government’s vision for the City South, bringing together the locals, the landscape and the waterfront.
 
The first stage of the development will comprise a $50M commercial office building to accommodate more than 300 public service roles from the NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation from late 2018.
 
Subsequent stages of the development will include more than 200 residential apartments, public linkages and mixed-use retail offerings.
 
“Measuring the success of a project is not only about the technicalities and construction results,” Mr Dixon said.
 
“It is also about the response and impacts the project makes on the surrounding community.
 
“Central Coast Quarter is a good example of this. The development is already creating 90 construction jobs and it will further deliver more than 330 ongoing indirect local jobs, an additional $1.4M in retail expenditure to the Gosford CBD and a further $4.2M to the broader region per annum.
 
“The impact of Central Coast Quarter extends far beyond the walls we are building. The benefits will be seen across the entire Central Coast community.”
