Centurion Group have submitted $25.8 million plans for a new mixed-use development in Sydney's Alexandria.

Architecture firm Rothelowman has designed the development of three buildings at 21 Collins Street, on the corner adjoining O'Riordan Street.

The four level buildings will comprise 85 apartments, ground level retail and a cafe. There will be 36 one bedroom units, 43 two bedrooms and seven three bedroom apartments, as well as 71 car spaces on the basement and ground levels.

The building has been designed with sustainability in mind, with living areas of the apartments to be orientated to maximise sunlight, daylight and natural ventilation.

The 4,305 sqm site was last sold for $3 million in 1999 when bought by Jaimee Alex Pty Ltd, directed by the Vaucluse-based ragtrader Eliezer Alster.

It currently homes The Alex warehouse conversion business centre, occupied by a number of retail and wholesale trade tenants.

Edwina Stuart is handling the landscaping which will feature a central garden area with an avenue of deciduous trees and bench seating.

Rothelowman's architect lead and firm principal Ben Pomroy wrote in the documents lodged to the City of Sydney that the proposed development recognises that the locality is undergoing a transition towards higher density residential uses and responds to the existing context through integration of commercial/retail uses along the prominent street frontages.

"The proposal has been developed in response to planning controls which encourage development and promote a liveable city."
