Potential Landmark Development Opportunity to Counter Parking Shortfall in Brighton Le Sands

13 October 2017

Bayside Council has launched a public campaign through Savills Australia to find a property solution to the parking shortfall in Brighton Le Sands (as shown on the attached plan), which may or may not incorporate the existing Council carpark at 1–7 The Boulevarde.

In June 2014, Rockdale City Council (now Bayside Council) commissioned a Brighton Le Sands Parking Strategy report as the first stage of the Brighton Le Sands Masterplan.

This strategy identified a shortfall in parking of 211 car spaces in the Brighton Le Sands core area. The Council owned Boulevarde car park in Brighton Le Sands was identified in the implementation plan as a Council asset that required improvement works and may be considered as a key component to providing car parking solutions in the town centre.

The 2,186sq m (approx.) site at 1–7 The Boulevarde currently provides a total of 250 car parking spaces, SP3 Tourist Zoning with permissible FSR of 3:1 and height of 28 metres and is located in the heart of Brighton Le Sands’ vibrant entertaining village precinct.

Surrounding zoning is a mix of B4 and R4, high density mixed use and residential, 28 to 51 metre height and permissible FSR ranging between 3:1 and 4:1.

There are a total of 2,595 car parking spaces within Brighton Le Sands, including a number of clearway parking spaces on The Grand Parade. Of these, 2,168 car spaces are located on-street and 427 spaces are located off-street within the Cole’s car park and The Boulevard car parking station. In addition, some 336 spaces are provided within the privately operated car park associated with the Novatel development located on the northwest corner of The Grand Parade/ Bay Street intersection.

According to Savills Metropolitan & Regional Sales, the invitation to provide a property based solution to the parking shortfall, which may or may not incorporate the existing Council carpark at 1-7 The Boulevarde seeks market interest from suitably qualified organisations who will be short listed for the Request for Proposals (RFP) process that will occur late 2017/early 2018.
