Jacksons Landing is the name of a residential and commercial property
development located on the northern peninsula of Pyrmont, an inner
suburb of Sydney, Australia. It is located on the former site of a major
sugar refinery which was operated by CSR Limited and is being developed
by the Lend Lease Corporation Limited group, a well-known real estate
Jacksons Landing is one of a number of planned communities which have become popular in Australia. These developments are based on the idea of offering a package of houses, apartments, open space and community facilities such as pools, gyms and tennis courts. High density inner-city developments such as Jacksons Landing are seen as one solution to the problem of urban sprawl in Sydney. The main residential towers are Quarry, Distillery, Evolve, Stonecutters, Sugardock, and the soon to be completed Silk.
The fantastical approach to Anzac Bridge.
As seen from the air, before Silk wnt up, and when the old hill was still partly forrested.
Jacksons Landing by Vivas Lend Lease and Hyder
Once home to a shipping port, sandstone quarry, sugar refinery, iron works, and industry, ‘Jacksons Landing’ spent almost 40 years in neglect before the 11.7 ha site was redeveloped to create a vibrant urban village alongside Sydney Harbour and within easy reach of the CBD.
The concept was first canvassed in 1988 but only came to fruition with Lend Lease’s purchase of the site in 1996. An international joint venture and redevelopment plan quickly followed, which has seen the progressive integration of commercial-retail capacity and quality community amenities into the area e.g. ample landscaped public spaces, shops and retail areas, parklands and waterfront park, and community sport and leisure facilities.
With the last phase—Distillery Hill precinct—well underway, the project is nearing completion. Stages 1, 2a, 2b and 5a are already finished. Construction of Stage 3 is underway with completion late 2010 and stages 4 and 5b now selling and under construction soon with completion 2012. In total the precinct Distillery Hill will yield over 680 dwellings ranging from stand alone high-rise apartments to low-rise terrace style apartments and multi-storey townhouses.
Hyder’s protracted involvement with Jacksons Landing dates back to 1999, starting with civil engineering design and documentation, services coordination and site inspections that have continued to this day. As the redevelopment runs its final lap to the finish line, all involved can look back proudly at the dramatic transformation into a Harbour ‘dress circle’ destination whose significance easily rivals the area's former commercial and industrial fame.
