The development of this 2.18 hectare site on the Sydney Harbour foreshore presents numerous challenges. Currently the site is zoned as Industrial, and the success of the project depends on changing the land use from industrial to mixed-use.

One challenge was to satisfy Leichhardt Council that this under-utilised site could be adaptively reused - without compromising its significance as an industrial complex and become a good neighbour to adjacent housing.

A second challenge lay in solving the traffic problems limiting its development in the context of other significant adjacent sites such as the White Bay Power Station and the port.

Jackson Teece worked with Leichhardt Council, the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority and the local community to prepare the Master Plan for the conversion of the disused industrial complex to serve a variety of more suitable uses.

The proposal strongly promotes ESD initiatives in energy and water management and adaptively reuses much of the original building stock, which is of historic interest. The Master Plan for mixed use was well received by the community and Council, with Jackson Teece gaining an allowable increase in the FSR from 1:1 to 3:1, while satisfying all standards of compliance.
