Private developer Johnson Property Group’s $580 million Trinity Point project north of Sydney is one step closer to starting, with approval given to put it forward for public consultation.
When completed it will give the Lake Macquarie area new apartments, a five-star hotel and function facilities.
Last week the Department of Planning and Environment and Lake Macquarie City Council both placed the proposal on community exhibition. The mixed-use precinct at Trinity Point, Morisset Park will also deliver new jobs for the Lake Macquarie community and the wider Hunter region.
The Johnson Property Group development proposal for the $580 million Trinity Point project at Lake Macquarie.
Johnson Property founder and managing director Keith Johnson said the company is passionate about investing in the area and providing the community with new and exciting places to live, work and play.
After listening to community feedback and current restaurant and marina customers, Johnson Property Group has significantly updated the proposal with improvements to the development’s design – reducing visual impacts, traffic and parking impacts, and providing better access to community facilities and open spaces.
Johnson has called it a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Lake Macquarie and the Hunter region”.
“Economic investment and delivering long-term value in regional NSW has been the core vision for the Trinity Point project since its inception,” Johnson said.
“That’s why we have listened closely to community feedback and refined our proposal to ensure we also reflect what our community needs and wants.”
The group has tested the waters with its 8 at Trinity 300-seat pop-up restaurant, which Johnson said has served more than 1000 customers a day from Sydney and surrounds.
Under the plan, the project will revitalise the waterfront location at Morisset Park with 6835 square metres of consolidated public space, the original 10 buildings reduced to only six, and the inclusion of two restaurants and a function centre.
There will be a 218-room capacity, five-star hotel, including serviced apartments, and 180 waterfront apartments. A gym, day spa and wellness centre, and a business centre, will also be included.
The project is a State Significant Development meaning the Department of Planning and Environment will assess the proposal.
Lake Macquarie City Council will be involved in recommending proposed amendments to the Local Environment Planning Controls. The community will be invited to provide submissions on both exhibitions.
