St. Vincent’s Health Australia has lodged a six-staged development masterplan for the redevelopment of St.Vincent’s Hospital in Kangaroo Point, which is set to be one big game-changer.
An application has been submitted for a major redevelopment of St Vincent’s Hospital in Kangaroo Point in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The masterplan would guide the development of the site over a 20 year period and is known as the ‘Kangaroo Point Integrated Wellness Community’.The application specifies that designs shown are indicative concepts that may not represent final plans, but rather a starting point for discussion.
Originally built in 1954, the hospital was Queensland’s first dedicated facility for the elderly and was the first modern hospice in Australia. Now, the site consists of St Vincent’s Private Hospital and St Vincent Care Services.
The proposed development proposes to split the site into two different precincts, with a residential precinct connected to the Riverwalk along the Brisbane river and health, aged care & education precinct along Main Street.
Designed by Bickerton Masters and Gaskell Planning Consultants, it proposes 6 stages with towers ranging in heights from 15 to 19 storeys. The application is for the masterplan only so far but detailed plans will follow regarding each stage individually as well.
