Nominations for the Rosenthal Project Community Liaison Group closed on 5 June 2017. The nominations will be reviewed this month ahead of an announcement of the Group's members.
consent is received, the builder will be able to confirm a firmer start date for excavation however at this stage
the target date is in the
Spring quarter of this year. To
reduce the impact of loss of parking the excavation works are being staged so that approximately half of the car park at the northern end will
still be available during the first few months of construction.
The community can sign up to the Project e-newsletter list to keep informed once more detail is available.
Council invites members of the community, local business operators, property owners and occupiers to nominate for the Rosenthal Project Community Liaison Group (CLG). The purpose of the Rosenthal Project CLG is to:-
Create a forum for discussion and exchange of information relating to the construction stage of the Rosenthal Project and to discuss planned construction activity on the Rosenthal Project;
To identify local issues and to provide the project team with local knowledge and local networks that are relevant in the project team's development of mitigation strategies that aim to minimise construction impacts on the community;
Act as a two-way communication link between the project team and the community during construction works and provide feedback to the project team at the CLG meetings; and
Create a forum for discussion and exchange of information relating to place making activation and mitigation strategies with Council.
The Rosenthal Avenue Car Park Redevelopment project team is getting ready for construction to commence before the end of 2017, following the submission of a Stage 2 Development Application in April.
The transformation of the existing car park into a vibrant new community space complete with a new open space and park is exciting however there will be disruptions during the construction period. Council have been working with ADCO Constructions (ADCO) the Design and Construction Builder to retain up to 100 car parking spaces during the initial part of the excavation and fast-track the staged provision of the 500 public car parking spaces by completion in 2020.
Before starting on site, Council and ADCO will meet with the community and businesses to share the redevelopment plans, proposed support activities and discuss updates since the last community consultation in 2016. Face to face visits to businesses in the immediate vicinity of the project will also take place to ensure ADCO have contact details for notification of upcoming activities and opportunities.
Council will also be establishing a Rosenthal Project Community Liaison group to assist during the project. Further details will be made available in due course.
Council has appointed ADCO Constructions as the Design and Construction Builder for the Rosenthal Avenue Car Park Redevelopment. Excavation works commence mid 2017with 50% of the car parking spaces available during the fi rst months of construction. The car park will then not be available for approximately 12 months after which time 80 spaces will be available on site. The full car park of 500 spaces is expected in early 2020.
Last year Council conducted a survey to help gauge the level of support for a number of measures to help encourage people to continue to shop locally during construction. These ideas were suggested by the community and businesses as part of workshops held earlier in the year. Following the results of the survey, Council will be prioritising a number of options including fast-tracking the return of parking to the public; running a campaign to help change parking habits and help promote alternatives such as the Little Street Car Park; and identifying retail support and development activities to offset construction impacts.
The online survey closed on 10 November 2016. Further information will be available in due course
Council recently held workshops with businesses and residents to help capture their ideas and solutions for minimising disruption during the construction of the Rosenthal Avenue Car Park Redevelopment.
A survey was produced in October to better understand which of those ideas and solutions will be of greatest help to you during the construction period. The most useful suggestions will be feasibility tested by Council prior to implementation.
A copy of the presentation provided at the August consultation sessions is now available to view online
Council invited local residents and businesses to attend
consultation sessions to find out more about the project ahead of construction

Lane Cove's highly anticipated Rosenthal Avenue Car Park Redevelopment has achieved two major milestones with Stage 1 Development Approval being obtained and the two major retail tenants confirmed.
Coles and ALDI are the anchor tenants set to occupy 5,400m2 of new retail space formed through the redevelopment of the current car park site. Based at the northern end of the village, the presence of Coles and ALDI in the redevelopment marks a new era for Lane Cove residents who will have a comprehensive supermarket offering, making shopping locally even easier.
"I am thrilled that Lane Cove has secured Coles and ALDI, they will be a wonderful addition to this new project in the heart of Lane Cove village. Our community has been looking forward to the Rosenthal redevelopment for several years and with work to commence next year, we finally have this major project in our sights" Mayor Hutchens.
Shoppers will have access to 500 underground car park spaces which will be constructed through the project. The new spaces will be a 250% increase on the 175 spaces of the current car park.
The jewel in the crown will be a vibrant public domain that will provide much-needed open space in the heart of Lane Cove village. Sitting at ground level the new park and open space will have something for the whole community. From park areas to playgrounds, BBQs, village green and stage, the space will be a place that attracts locals all year round. With activated laneways and pedestrian links to retail areas to the south and east, the space will complement the existing Plaza space.
The park design was developed following the Design Ideas Competition in 2014, when Council consulted with the community on the look and feel of the proposed open space, based on concepts proposed by a range of design firms. The most popular aspects were then integrated into a vision that will provide an exciting focal point for the residents of Lane Cove.
With construction due to start in 2017, Council is preparing to call tenders from builders for the design and construction of the project. The latest information on the project will be available on Council's website as the project progresses.
