New recreation centre for sports-loving Sydney locals

The ultimate warehouse conversion in Alexandria.

We’re transforming an industrial building into a beautiful new recreation centre for sports-loving locals.

The new centre on Huntley Street is part of our work to meet growing demand for more indoor sporting facilities.

Early designs for the centre at 6-8 Huntley Street propose 4 indoor multipurpose courts, outdoor practice recreation courts, a fitness space and a landscaped public lawn.

The multipurpose courts will cater for basketball, netball, futsal, volleyball, gymnastics and badminton.

Other features include seating for spectators, reception and administration areas, a kiosk and change rooms.

There will be outdoor courts for practice sessions, a landscaped forecourt and bike parking.

The Huntley Street recreation centre has been designed with environmental sustainability in mind, with solar panels covering the entire rooftop. Rainwater will also be collected, stored and reused on the site.

The centre will be accessible and is only a 15 minute walk from Green Square and St Peters train stations. It’s close to local bus routes and the Bourke Road cycleway.

We acquired the site in 2018 and we engaged Collins and Turner Architects to work on the design.

The finishing touches will be made to project’s design before a development application is lodged.

If approved, construction is expected to get underway in 2022.
