Gosford’s skyline set to change with $1 billion worth of development on the drawing board

GOSFORD’S skyline will be transformed into a modern metropolis if three developments valued at more than $1 billion go ahead.

This artist’s impression of the CBD is the Lederer Group’s interpretation of the Gosford skyline if its $650 million Gosford Alive project goes ahead.

The proposal covers 5.8ha in the heart of Gosford which sees the tired Kibbleplex building replaced with apartment blocks housing 730 units in a mixture of high-rise and low-rise buildings and, eventually, 730 apartments above the Imperial Shopping Centre.

Also in the image is the $234 million triple-tower Waterside project on the corner of Mann St, Georgiana Tce and Baker St, and the $157 million Vogue Towers, on the corner of Donnison and Mann streets, formerly known as the Mariners Plaza.

The three Waterside towers, the tallest being 33 storeys, and the 28-storey Vogue Towers have been approved by the Hunter Central Coast Joint Regional Planning Panel.

The Lederer Group is expected to lodge a development application for stage one of the Gosford Alive project with Gosford Council shortly.

The transformation of the CBD skyline is a vision that has excited Gosford Mayor Lawrie McKinna.

“I can’t wait,” Councillor McKinna said.

“I can’t wait till you drive over Brian McGowan Bridge, or even before that, and you will see a skyline that looks like a city.

“I am a big advocate for change, which I know is not everybody’s cup of tea, but I really believe the majority of people want to see change too.”

Work on the Waterside and Vogue projects is expected to start this year.
