The State Dept of Planning and Environment (DPE) undertook an Expressions of Interest (EOI) campaign late last year to identify a delivery partner to help transform the former Manly Hospital site into a vibrant health and wellbeing precinct.
The response was excellent with some top tier organisations now in discussions to become the delivery partner to work with DPE and the community to develop a master plan and site specific Development Control Plan (DCP) to meet the needs of the people of the Northern Beaches and the greater Sydney metropolitan area.
In addition shortlisted EOI respondents have now been invited to participate in the Request for Detailed Proposal (RFDP) phase which commenced on the 10th of March.
A preferred delivery partner is expected to be appointed by late this year. It is anticipated the project will be delivered via a long-term leasehold agreement with the successful proponent, ensuring the Site is retained in government ownership.
The Draft Concept Master Plan is pictured below.
