A genuinely urban proposition for the Waterloo urban renewal area

Woolworths Waterloo

City of Sydney Design Excellence Competition Win

We’re delighted to share the winning design for Woolworths Waterloo, chosen unanimously by the jury in the recent City of Sydney Design Excellence process.


Bates Smart has crafted a family of buildings organised around a mature tree canopy. The precinct is enlivened by high-quality public domain, a full-line supermarket, specialty retail, commercial office space and a diverse mix of apartments and terraces. The design is a genuinely urban proposition to support the rapid growth of the Waterloo and Green Square neighbourhoods.

Design Collaborators: Barbara Flynn + Darrell Sibosado.
