CASTLE HILL SHOWGROUND MASTERPLAN

CASTLE HILL SHOWGROUND MASTERPLAN News / New Project / 18.03.2019

A masterplan for the redevelopment of Castle Hill showground is underway to create a new 15 hectare entertainment and recreational hub for Sydney's northwest. The iconic Showground site will become the primary civic space for a new precinct of 20,000 residents, catalysed by construction of the adjacent Metro station.

McGregor Coxall won a public tender process in March 2019 with a vision to retain the Showground as a place full of activity, adventure and amenity. Working in collaboration with Elton, HillPDA and MbM the team will establish a commercially viable framework to create an integrated network of social infrastructure with clear pathways to delivery. These initiatives will be supported by collaborating architects CHROFI developing a flexible, multi-purpose architecture across the site, and project engineers Cardno assisting in creating evolutionary infrastructure for the precinct.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said, “Castle Hill Showground is located within the Showground Precinct which will become a vibrant and well-connected neighbourhood with the opening of the Sydney Metro Northwest in a mere matter of months. We can also expect an additional 9,000 homes and the creation of 2,300 jobs as a result of this new transport link. As the Showground adjoins the station, there is a fantastic opportunity for the 130-year-old site to gain leverage from the new infrastructure and substantial growth that is forecast within the Precinct.”
