The groundbreaking ceremony marked around five and a half years since TOGA paid nearly $95 million for the 1.2 hectare site in mid-2015.

TOGA managing director Allan Vidor AM was joined by Redfern local and Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore at an official ceremony marking milestone.

Mr Vidor said the ground breaking marks the start of the much-anticipated regeneration of the iconic site.  

 “We are very proud to be leading the transformation of this important site that will be a catalyst for the future shape of Sydney’s inner city. Our vision is to deliver a precinct that will celebrate the authenticity of the neighbourhood whilst also bringing the energy of new people and businesses to the suburb. 

“For our future residents, locals and visitors, we are creating a destination that will enrich the area, with exceptional dining and bars alongside some of Sydney’s best providores within a new retail laneway, commercial office building and public park. In addition, the precinct will include a boutique 102 room hotel with roof top pool and bar making Surry Hills Village a truly unique, once in a generation project that the community will enjoy for many years to come”.

Lord Mayor Clover Moore said, as a Redfern local, she welcomes the revitalisation of the old Surry Hills shopping centre, bringing new life to the area and better serving the needs of the people who are living here.

Adam Haddow, SJB Architects director and a Surry Hills local, says because of the location of Surry Hills Village, near SJB's office, the team are hugely passionate about the significant project and the opportunity it presents for the neighbourhood.

“Paying homage to the history of the site and building, while ensuring a blend of retail, residential, hotel and commercial space that feels at one with the street environment was a priority. We set out to revitalise the site and to create a space that locals can be proud of.”
