Sydney church plots two 16-storey towers with aged care

Published on

St Alban’s Epping wants to build the towers on its prime site, 18km north-west of the CBD, which is zoned for buildings up to 16 storeys high, the Daily Tele reports.

The buildings would include around 150 homes and offices and retail on the lower floors, with aged care, affordable housing and childcare also being considered for the million-dollar site, 100m from Epping Station.

Under the plan, most of its buildings would be demolished, including a hall, rectory and an old church built in 1896 that is now used as an office, with only the main church left.

The church’s Reverend Ross Nicholson said they would not sell the site, but offer a long lease to a developer partner.
