Expressions of Interest Invited to Deliver Manly Health Sanctuary
The NSW Government today launched an Expressions of Interest (EOI) campaign to secure a delivery partner to help transform the former Manly Hospital site into a vibrant health and wellbeing sanctuary.
Member for Manly, James Griffin, said this was a rare opportunity to work with the Government to deliver a unique precinct in the heart of Sydney’s northern beaches that will serve the community for generations to come.
“This is an exciting opportunity to partner with government to plan and deliver a world-class and innovative health and wellbeing precinct,” Mr Griffin said.
To help realise the community’s vision for the site, a planning proposal was granted by Northern Beaches Council to expand the range of uses permitted under the former precinct’s previous health services facility zoning.
The delivery partner will work with the NSW Government and the community to develop the next iteration of the master plan for the 4.6ha site to meet needs of the people of the Northern Beaches and greater Sydney metropolitan area.
“The successful proponent will partner with us to develop the master plan and a site-specific development control plan (DCP) in line with the vision statement and guiding principles that have been developed in partnership with the community.”
Minister for Water, Property and Housing, Melinda Pavey, said the aim of the EOI process was to ensure the best possible outcomes for the precinct’s heritage elements and the community.
“We are looking for a delivery partner that can demonstrate innovation in design, sustainability and delivery of a world-class adaptive re-use project for this important site and iconic location,” Mrs Pavey said.
The project will be delivered via a long-term leasehold agreement with the successful proponent, ensuring the site remains in government ownership and custodial control.
The EOI will run for approximately five weeks and shortlisted respondents will be invited to submit a detailed proposal. For further details, refer to www.tenders.nsw.gov.au.
