Good morning,


Leighton Properties and LaSalle Investment Management are commencing early works on a new, high-quality, inner-city residential community on Macdonald Street Erskineville.


The 1.6 hectare site is in the north-west corner of the 17 hectare Ashmore Precinct. The site is bounded by Ashmore, Bridge and Macdonald Streets Erskineville and the rail line.


Site early works and display suite


On Monday 19 March 2012, activity will commence on site. Starting soon after will be the site early works, which have been approved by the City of Sydney, and will include:

§  Partial demolition of the existing warehouse

§  Site remediation and associated excavation works

§  Construction of site hoarding and fencing

§  Construction of a temporary display suite, landscaping and car parking for 24 vehicles

§  Signage within the street and along the Macdonald St and Bridge St frontages.

Site early works are expected to be completed in mid-2012. Work will occur on site from:

§  Monday-Friday 7am-6pm

§  Saturday: 8am-5pm

§  Sunday and public holidays: no work

For safety reasons, access through the site will not be available from Monday 19 March 2012. We apologise for any inconvenience and suggest an alternative route via George and Macdonald Streets.
