ROSENTHAL AVENUE CAR PARK, LANE COVE VILLAGE
Council sought to work with the community to create a new public space at the Rosenthal Avenue Car Park. The Rosenthal Avenue Car Park is located in the heart of Lane Cove and currently accommodates 176 surface level parking spaces. We want this well-located site to be more than just a grey parking space – it should be a vibrant, community-oriented space where residents, workers and visitors meet, socialise, eat, recreate and be entertained.
A NEW PUBLIC SPACE FOR LANE COVE
Council is planning for the redevelopment of the site which will open up the surface level of the site to the public as an open space, while below the space will be a level of retail and three levels of parking providing approximately 500 public car park spaces.
WHAT DO YOU WANT YOUR NEW PUBLIC SPACE TO BE?
Council invited four leading Sydney landscape architecture studios to submit innovative design concepts for the new open space. The designers ideas ranged from an Urban Forest and a Sculpture Garden to a Bushland Playspace and Vine-laden Pergola Structure. The designs were put on public exhibition for community consideration and feedback was sought regarding which key ideas from the various schemes were preferred. It is not intended that any one specific design will be selected as a preferred or winning design. The designs ideas exhibition is intended to stimulate debate and imagination in the Community about what could be possible on the site. Your feedback will be used to develop a final brief for the design of this key new public domain.
HOW TO VIEW THE DESIGN CONCEPTS

A report addressing issues raised throughout the consultation period was considered at the Ordinary Council Meeting of 20 April 2015 where Council resolved in part to endorse the Rosenthal Design Ideas Exhibition
Engagement Report and the priority of design ideas that it contains.
