Maas Group Properties have been awarded JRPP approval for a major mixed-use development in the main street of Dubbo on the former Liberal site.
Concept plans for the $84.4 million dollar development were initially released to the public in November 2017 and were received by the local community with overwhelming enthusiasm and support.
Maas Group Properties worked closely with Council staff and various consultants the development was further developed and amended which comprise several changes to ensure the heritage of the Old Bank building is preserved and enhanced and urban design considerations of Macquarie Street and the greater Dubbo Central Business District massing was duly addressed.
“Throughout the approval process we have been very conscious of the local heritage value of the Old Bank Building and how the new building relates to the Old Bank and Macquarie Street. The Old Bank is a beautiful building and we believe we have made it the jewel in the crown of The Liberal development.” Steve Guy, General Manager, Maas Group Properties
The approved development now boasts contemporary ground floor retail and upper-level commercial office floor space over-looking Macquarie Street, 290 serviced apartments and 333 on site car parking spaces.
The development’s construction will continue to be staged in its delivery with the ‘north tower’ the first to commence late 2019 early 2020 featuring approximately 100 serviced apartments and commercial space, followed by the ‘south tower’ and completion of the project in 2020/21.
