Central Station – Over-Station Redevelopment

TAHE is excited to play a leading role in the redevelopment of Central Station, with the recent launch of draft plans for over-station development at Sydney’s railway icon. 


The Masterplan will re-shape a 24-hectare site including the historic station and surrounding land, including a new public square and a park to be built over the rail lines. 


The plan will provide a world-class mixed-use precinct incorporating tech and office space, hotel and residential developments, three new public spaces and new pedestrian connections to link up Surry Hills and Haymarket. 

Transport Asset Holding Entity as the site owner is working with Transport for NSW to deliver the project.  

TAHE’s CEO Bénédicte Colin said, “This is exactly the type of project TAHE was set up to do, helping unlock the potential of Central Station and its surrounding areas to deliver better outcomes for the people of NSW.” 

“Through the preservation and transformation of our heritage infrastructure, we’ll be creating a socially and culturally sustainable precinct offering greater employment, commercial and lifestyle opportunities in the city’s south.” 

“Along with the masterplan for the nearby Redfern-North Eveleigh Precinct, TAHE is proud to play a role in shaping our city for the future through the transformation of our assets.”
