About $1 billion in residential and commercial developments in the Gosford CBD are finally on the move.

Designs are finished and construction will begin early next year on a $400 million development hailed as Gosford’s “most significant transformation”.

And two state significant developments — Central Coast Quarter (expected to cost hundreds of millions) and Gosford Alive ($280m) — go on public exhibition on Friday until November 7.

*The highly anticipated Central Coast Quarter development application has been lodged for a hotel/entertainment destination at the southern end of Mann St where the old Gosford Public School once stood.

The St Hilliers Masterplan for 26 to 32 Mann St proposes a mixed-use precinct with three buildings between eight- and 24-storeys to include a hotel, residential accommodation and commercial premises including restaurants and shops.

It also includes a public plaza to flow onto the Leagues Club Field which is set for a $10m transformation into a nature inspired space.

Across the CBD, The Lederer Group has revised its proposal for the Gosford Kibbleplex site. The proposal, known as Gosford Alive, is a mixed use development including five towers, ranging from 20 to 30 storeys, at 136 to 146 and 148 Donnison St.

Lederer Group — helmed by Primo smallgoods honcho and Western Sydney Wanderers owner Paul Lederer — wants to construct a residential and retail precinct including 1014 basement and above ground parking spaces.

In March, the Express obtained documents for Gosford Alive which outlined Lederer’s intentions to combine residential, retail, food and beverage, entertainment and leisure offerings all in the same city block.

It goes as far as to suggest a cinema or bowling alley would be at home within the project’s scope.

“The proposed development is an urban renewal project, which will result in the transition of an unappealing carpark site into a lively, attractive, and vibrant precinct to serve the growing needs of the emerging population in and around the Central Coast,” the report read.

This development has been subject to many hold ups, with Lederer withdrawing a proposal for 730 residential apartments in 2016 due to uncertainty around the council merger.

Gosford City Council sold Kibbleplex to the Lederer Group in 2015 for $13 million.

The $400 million Archibald Development includes two towers with 300 apartments, a premium hotel with 167 suites and world class roof top bar on the corner of Mann and Donnison streets.

The towers will be 25 and 26 storeys and include retail shops, bars and restaurants.

The development was initially approved in May 2015.

Back then it was the vision of developer Peter Zhu, however the new owners of The Archibald have kept their identity confidential.

Construction will start in early 2020.

The Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation has released final designs for the $10 transformation of Leagues Cl…

The $10m transformation of Leagues Club Field is expected to start within weeks.

The final plans include a nature-inspired space with new picnic areas and amenities, walkways, inclusive playground and water play areas.

The water areas will work in with the tide from Brisbane Water, and have a maximum depth of 280mls.

Earlier this year, Central Coast Leagues Club also announced its future vision for a $450m redevelopment including two towers with alfresco dining precinct, hotel accommodation and improved pedestrian access to Gosford and the waterfront.

It is predicted to generate 1500 direct construction jobs and up to 400 permanent jobs.

The Club, which is the longest running on the Coast, indicated it wasn’t going to be left behind in the revitalisation of Gosford.

All of this activity and investment, including the completion of Bonython Tower, has attracted new business and places to socialise in the CBD with the opening of Bay Rd Brewing, The Bon Pavilion, along with South End Social and At Baker Street.
