St Vincents Hospital Caritas Planning Approval

St Vincents Hospital Caritas Planning Approval

Architectus was engaged by St Vincents and Mater Health Sydney to prepare a Concept Plan and Part 3A Major Project Application for the development of a new mental health facility on the St Vincents Darlinghurst campus.

The new facility, located within inner East Sydney, will bring together mental health, drug, alcohol and community health programs into one new complex.

Funding for the project was secured through a Concept Plan for the divestment of the nearby hospital property ‘Caritas’. The Concept Plan provided for a mixed use residential and commercial development with adaptive re-use of existing heritage buildings and secured a high financial sale of the site.

Planning approval was secured from the NSW Department of Planning in six months from commission, supporting the hospital’s constrained delivery program.
