Gosford’s 32 Mann Street project has reached a new milestone with property development and construction company St Hilliers unveiling the development’s name, Central Coast Quarter.
Central Coast Quarter is designed to activate the southern end of Mann Street, which runs directly through the centre of Gosford CBD and is an important connection between the waterfront, stadium precinct, public parks, train station and the CBD.
It will boast much-needed facilities with a coastal twist, bringing the best of the outdoors together with an array of food and retail offerings as well as new entertainment hubs.
The development of Central Coast Quarter is in line with the NSW Government’scurrent Urban Design Implementation Framework (UDIF) which aims to shape the continued development and renewal of the Gosford City Centre. St Hilliers has recently contributed to this initial UDIF strategy and strongly supports the revitalisation of Gosford.
“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,” said Mr Mark Dixon, Property Development and Investment Manager at St Hilliers.
“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 NSW Government’s vision for the City South precinct is focused on bringing together the locals, the landscape and the waterfront. This synergy is what St Hilliers is also working towards with Central Coast Quarter.
“Measuring the success of a project is not only about the technicalities and construction results. It is also about the response and impacts the project makes on the surrounding community,” continued Mr Dixon.
“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 $1.4 million in retail expenditure to the Gosford CBD and a further $4.2 million 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.”
