Gosford Alive is a 15-20 year vision from urban renewal specialists, Lederer Property. The Master Plan for the $650 million mixed-use development sets out an exciting proposal for a vibrant new urban precinct across a 5.8-hectare site in Gosford CBD just minutes from Gosford Train Station, that will transform Gosford CBD and create a new civic heart for the people of the Central Coast Region.
A contemporary mix of apartments featuring striking architecture that reflects and celebrates the region’s natural beauty, will form strong connections with the existing urban landscape.
It is envisaged that Kibble Park will be transformed into a new civic heart with a maximised green footprint and new café and restaurant concepts. The park will feature new water features, a multipurpose performance space, enhanced childrens’ playground, substantial tree planting and a market venue, certain to become a popular family destination and buzzing social scene.
Residents will benefit from new shopping, food and entertainment experiences with an additional 8,000 square metres of retail/commercial space and 300 more parking spaces, proposed as part of the ongoing redevelopment of the Imperial Centre.
A New Era For

In line with the NSW Government’s Draft Central Coast Strategy 2015, which defines Gosford as the new capital of the Central Coast, Gosford Alive will provide a new city living experience for for Gosford and provide an array of long-term benefits to the community.
In partnership with leading architectural firm Conybeare Morrison (CM+), Lederer Property has answered the NSW Government’s call to action.

The first stage of the project will see the ‘Gosford Alive’ Master Plan advanced as a Stage 1 development application (DA). The DA will be lodged with Gosford City Council in the first quarter of 2016. Due to the capital investment value of the project, NSW planning legislation requires that the DA is assessed by the Joint Regional Planning Panel on behalf of Gosford City Council.
The Master Plan provides for the staging of the project at five-year intervals. Pending the approval of the Master Plan DA, each subsequent stage would be the subject of its own development application and would be assessed against a planning framework that encompasses the Stage 1 Master Plan alongside relevant state and local environmental planning instruments.
