Thank you for requesting WaterNSW's comments on the EIS for the Sydney Metro Crows Nest OSD Site C - Stage 2. Please note that as the subject site is not located in close proximity to any WaterNSW land or assets, and as an SSD any flood works or licensing approvals will be assessed by others, the risk to water quality is considered to be low and WaterNSW has no comments or particular requirements.

I attended the Community Information session on 19 June at the Crow's Nest Centre, just as well I'm familiar with the centre as I did not see any directions at the entrance to the downstairs room.
In considering the several sites I find Site C an architecturally uninspiring building. I doubt if it will be compatible with surrounding buildings and add any aesthetic value to the area. In addition I also doubt it will be in symmetry with surrounding buildings when, or if, they are constructed. In my opinion that site would be better left as an open space to transition to the proposed park opposite as there is a desperate lack of open space for residents and workers in the surrounding area. I realise that site includes an entrance/exit to the Metro station but I think a more creative building could be installed.
As for Site B I can see the value of a boutique hotel for the area or a residential block of limited height taking into account overshadowing of the area east and west. Regarding Site C I have already commented previously on the opportunistic ill considered original proposal. The drawing in the brochure is an improvement but I still think a building of that size will only add to the over development of the Crow's Nest-St Leonards area resulting in many vacant residential units for years to come.

North Sydney Comment - Metro Crows Nest Site C/ OSD
To whom it may concern,
Council notes the building design and project scope of this proposal and raises no objection. The proposal is premised on the previous concept approval and the Design Excellence process required by the North Sydney LEP.
With respect to the broader design of the Metro site, Council maintains its previously stated concerns regarding final traffic flows and public domain issues.

Dear Joina,

Notice of Exhibition
Sydney Metro Crows Nest OSD Site C - Stage 2 (SSD-13852803)

Thank you for notifying Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) of the exhibition of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the above State Significant Development project.

It is understood that the EIS has been prepared by Kate Tudehope and Anna Nowland of Ethos Urban on behalf of Sydney Metro (the Applicant) to address matters identified in the relevant Secretary’s Environmental Assessment Requirements (SEARs). These matters are in relation to the design, construction, and operation of a commercial office building (the Development) over Sydney Metro’s Crows Nest Station.

The following comments are submitted for consideration following a review of relevant parts of the EIS and associated appendices.

It is noted that an application for a Crown Certificate will be made for the Development under the applicable legislative provisions of the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, such that there would be no requirement for the Applicant (or representatives thereof) to make required formal submissions in accordance with Part 8, Division 2, Clause 144 of the NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Regulation 2000. Such submissions are essential in ensuring that the fire and life safety measures afforded to a development are not only adequate to meet the extent of potential incidents, but suitably accommodate the operational requirements of attending firefighters in undertaking intervention activities. To ensure that suitable consideration in given to these requirements, FRNSW recommend that the following conditions be included in the relevant instrument of consent should the Development be granted approval.

1. Should the fire engineering design be reliant upon performance solutions to achieve compliance with the performance requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC), the Applicant (or representative thereof) be required to consult with FRNSW by way of the Fire Engineering Brief Questionnaire (FEBQ) process.
2. A Fire Engineering Report (FER) be prepared by the Applicant (or representatives thereof) and submitted to FRNSW for review and comment.

The above recommendations reflect the consultation and approval process that would be otherwise followed should the Development not have been seeking to make application for a Crown Certificate.

If you have any queries regarding the above please contact the Fire Safety Infrastructure Liaison Unit, referencing FRNSW file number BFS21/2057. Please ensure that all correspondence in relation to this matter is submitted electronically to [email protected]
