|Dear Mr Chan, |
On behalf of UTS, we wish to inform you about a significant project in Ultimo. In the past week, designs for the new UTS Business School have been released, and we’d like to hear from the Haymarket Chamber of Commerce about the proposal.
The new UTS Business School building has been designed by world acclaimed architect, Frank Gehry.
This new building, located at 14-28 Ultimo Road (the former Dairy Farmer’s site), will become an Australian landmark. It will put Sydney on the map as home to a world class, cutting edge, contemporary building.
Using environmentally sustainable design, this will be a building for the whole community to enjoy with public open spaces, cafes, plazas, exhibition space, and set in a pedestrian-friendly environment connected to the Ultimo Pedestrian Network.
Named the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building, in recognition of a generous donation by business leader, Dr Chau Chak Wing, it is the centrepiece of the UTS City Campus Master Plan.
The Masterplan will create a cutting-edge campus by developing a series of new buildings, major upgrades and improved pedestrian connections, right in the heart of the Ultimo and Haymarket community.
We are delighted to share the initial designs of this building with the surrounding community and we are interested in receiving feedback and comment from the members of the Haymarket Chamber of Commerce.
We encourage you to view the architectural drawings and models of the new UTS Business School building that are on display at UTS until 14 January 2011. The display will be open between 8am and 6pm seven days a week (excluding public holidays) in the Chancellery space.
We especially invite yourself and members of the Haymarket Chamber of Commerce to attend meet and greet sessions hosted by members of the project team on:
Saturday, 8 January 11:00am – 2:00pm
Wednesday, 12 January 5:00pm – 6:45pm
Saturday, 15 January 11:00am – 2:00pm
Additional information, including all exhibition materials will be available at www.utsmasterplan.com.au. If you are unable to attend the exhibition in person, we encourage you to provide feedback and ask questions via the online discussion forum on the project website.
We ask that you please share the details about this community consultation with the members of the Haymarket Chamber of Commerce.
On behalf of UTS, we look forward to your involvement in this project.
