Joyn­ton Av­enue Cre­ative Cen­tre

What is it: A community space in the cen­tre of Green Square When will it open? Novem­ber 2017

Time Out (Sydney) - - FUTURE SYDNEY -

The City of Syd­ney is call­ing Green Square a new town cen­tre – the first to be con­structed in 100 years – and they’re pre­dict­ing the new hub will house up to 61,000 peo­ple by 2030. They’re spend­ing $18 mil­lion to de­velop a new ur­ban community, which sits four kilo­me­tres from the CBD and Syd­ney Air­port. At the heart of the 278-hectare de­vel­op­ment will be a new cul­tural precinct and community cen­tre op­er­ated by 107 Projects. What was once the Esme Cahill Build­ing will be­come the Joyn­ton Av­enue Cre­ative Cen­tre where you can ex­pect to see mak­ers’ stu­dios, hot desks and well­ness rooms. The Red­fern-based col­lec­tive will man­age the three-storey prop­erty (once the nurses’ quar­ters of the for­mer South Syd­ney Hos­pi­tal). They’re sift­ing through ap­pli­ca­tions from start-ups and cre­atives who’d like to take up res­i­dence in one of the el­e­gant of­fice spaces con­structed in the old bed­rooms. The Ma­tron’s Lawn will be given new life as a cov­ered out­door area for ac­tiv­i­ties like Tai Chi or yoga. Like Red­fern’s ex­ist­ing 107 Projects, the new space will of­fer free ex­hi­bi­tions and quiet ar­eas where visi­tors can chill out or meet for cof­fee. Joyn­ton Av­enue is al­ready un­der con­struc­tion and, fin­gers crossed, it’ll be open to the pub­lic later this year.
