Mirvac’s vision for the Australian Technology Park (ATP) is to
create a vibrant new precinct that combines world class work, retail and
community spaces. Mirvac will conserve, interpret and celebrate the precinct’s
rich and significant heritage assets and stories.
The redevelopment of the ATP precinct commenced in January 2016,
and will include the delivery of three new buildings for commercial, retail,
and community purposes, as well as landscaping and public domain improvements
to ensure that ATP connects to the wider precinct and local community.
Construction is well underway and Mirvac is now exploring
redevelopment opportunities for the Locomotive Workshop. Mirvac’s
wider vision is to realise the true potential of ATP by celebrating its
significant heritage value to create a place that people love.
The redevelopment of ATP and the Locomotive Workshop is informed
by Stage 1 of our Heritage Interpretation Strategy, developed last year by
Curio Projects in consultation with the community and stakeholders. This
strategy provides initial direction around how the heritage buildings and
artefacts will inform and shape the site’s transformation. As part of the
SSDAs, we will be considering the heritage interpretation and will commence
planning for the Stage 2 Interpretation Plan.
Key to this process will be to retain the existing Blacksmith
operation, the exploration of opportunities to increase public activation of
the building and provide heritage display areas alongside a range of innovative
commercial and artisan retail spaces.
