Work on Rosenthal Project set to kick off soon

July 29, 2017 by  

September 2017 has been set down as the starting date for the construction of the much anticipated Rosenthal Project in Lane Cove.

The project has been described as among the most ambitious in decades for the Lane Cove village, which services an area that also includes neighbouring St. Leonards.

According to a Lane Cove Council newsletter, the existing 176-bay carpark located in Rosenthal Avenue will be transformed into 500, spread across four levels of underground parking.

The ‘jewel in the crown’ will be a new open space area situated in the centre of the village above anchor tenants ALDI and Coles.

The park area, set to be a place for people to relax and enjoy the surroundings, will provide picnic spaces, an outdoor stage, play areas, and links to the existing Plaza and arcades.

The project is expected to be completed in 2.5 years with work earmarked to start following approval for the commencement of extensive excavation.

About 50% of current car parking spaces on the site’s northern portion will be retained during the construction’s first few months.

According to the newsletter, this will include the peak shopping period at Christmas and through until January 2018, after which the entire carpark will close for about 12 months.

An information campaign, including the distribution of flyers and erection of signs, is being put together to help visitors and shoppers locate alternate parking while construction is being carried out.
