18 Waitara Ave, Waitara
GM Urban Design and Architecture (GMU) was appointed by the Vasey Housing Association NSW to undertake a preliminary built form study and prepare a Staged Development Application (Stage 1 DA) for a senior living development located at No. 18 Waitara Avenue, Waitara. The built form study undertaken by GMU informed the stage 1 DA submission for a seniors housing development.
The preferred built form option was informed by detailed analysis of streetscape features and the neighbourhood character, as well as GMU’s understanding of the desired future character intent for the Park Avenue, Waitara Precinct (HDCP 2013). The preferred option provided a built form response and apartment building typology which was compatible with the character of the surrounding neighbourhood, providing high levels of amenity to public and private domain areas.
