In November 2020, Abacus lodged a Development Application to enable the immediate reactivation of the Metro with co-working and retail uses, continuing the longstanding commercial activity on the site since 1980.
Lodgement of this DA was accompanied by a second stage community engagement and communication program voluntarily conducted by Abacus including provision of detailed updates, plans and planning documentation on this website and supported by the delivery of 2700+ Project Update Flyers over a radius of 150 metres from the Metro. In addition, the City of Sydney conducted its own public exhibition process which concluded in December 2020.
In a new development Abacus has now entered into a conditional contract with an external party for the Metro, the details of which are commercial in confidence.
As a result of this contract, and the conclusion of the public exhibition phase of our DA, we have now paused our engagement activities for the immediate future.
We thank all those who have engaged with us, and for contributing their thoughts and ideas about the future of the Metro and Potts Point over the recent months.
