As part of the City of Sydney’s Sustainable Sydney 2030 Plan, design firm HASSELL has been selected to re-imagine Taylor Square South at the intersection of Flinders and Oxford Streets with an integrated bike hub. This green travel development will be the first of its kind in Sydney and is designed to boost support for residents opting for this more sustainable travel option.
Three busy cycle routes currently form a junction at Taylor Square South so this is a prime opportunity for a hub of this nature. The development will include a community venue linked to social and cycling activity, information, service and retail.
HASSELL has also been charged with masterplanning a future upgrade of the public square and designing a transformation of the historic Federation building, stripping back the temporary artwork by Reko Rennie which currently encases its façade.
