To transform the site into a unique and thriving precinct which integrates with its surroundings effectively, provides an improved public realm, multiple hospitality and personal services options, and enhanced amenity for the local Sorrento community.
We have developed the following project objectives to inform the planning of the site and underpin its future potential as a revitalised site.
The Shaping Sorrento Plaza engagement project aims to:
Regenerate an important local precinct
Deliver an attractive and welcoming precinct
Enhance local connectivity, that is safely accessible by car, bike and foot
Demonstrate design excellence
Cater for people at all stages in life – with offerings for families, singles, couples, retirees and more
Deliver a high-quality hospitality experience
Provide personal services and classes to service the community (e.g. yoga)
Respond to the coastline, neighbourhood and community
Invest in the local economy, providing opportunities for new and existing businesses to thrive and provide local employment and economic development
The design of the redevelopment for Sorrento Plaza aims to deliver significant benefits back to the community and will be planned based on the community engagement process.
Initial proposed benefits include:
- Removing overhead street powerlines and placing underground.
- Working with existing commercial tenants to provide new improved tenancies within the new development – that the community can enjoy.
- Improving the public realm and access to the beach, to create an attractive beachside precinct for the community.
Megara look forward to adding to this list, to incorporate meaningful and tangible community benefits, as part of the Shaping Sorrento Plaza redevelopment.
