This design was developed to enable the University to plan for the redevelopment of their major entry at the corner of Herring Road and Waterloo Road, with links to the new railway station now under construction.
Over 50,000 square metres of new accommodation is planned in four medium-rise buildings, with uses ranging from commercial office space to new facilities for the University. The project has a symbolic role to signal the Universityâ€™s presence with four glass beacon towers, recalling Macquarieâ€™s shining lighthouse which is the badge of the University.
Around the buildings are highly-developed landscaped courtyards, each relating to specific public uses.
