CLEMTON PARK VILLAGE STAGE 3
CLEMTON PARK, NSW
Clemton Park Village Stage 3 (CPV3) is the mixed use heart of the entire Clemton Park Masterplan in Sydney’s inner west. The project is a synthesis of retail, community uses, carparking and residential, which are organised over eight storeys above ground and two basement levels.
The design for CPV3 includes substantial public realm works, with the creation of a public plaza activated by retail uses, which links through to the public green open space in the adjacent Stage 4 development. The provision of an internal street linking from Charlotte Street through to the public plaza provides visual connectivity and is activated by speciality retail which surrounds the mini major and the full line supermarket, which both address the internal street. All street frontages are activated by either retail or residential uses which ‘sleeve’ the retail to provide visual detail around the more ‘big box’ uses inside.
Residential lobbies are located straddling the retail, providing retail spaces and street addresses at ground level. The residential is primarily located above the landscaped podium that is created by the retail form below. A community garden and community space are provided at podium level, with a grand civic stair and lobby joining them and them to the lower plaza level and providing ease of access for the residents to the retail.
A multitude of materials and executions for the graphics were considered in the initial planning phase, with the intention for the graphic system to be multifunctional, but also remain considerate to the site’s heritage and importance it played in Australia’s manufacturing history.
