Expression of Interest (EOI)  Public Artwork for Station Precinct Rhodes

Invitation to register EOI for Concept Design (Stage 1 – EOI) & Design Development (Stage 2 – Selective Tender) for ‘the development and installation of The Station Precinct Public Art’.

The City of Canada Bay is seeking Expressions of Interest from artists for a public artwork in the design of the public domain of the Station Precinct Rhodes. The work should integrate broader directions in place making and themes outlined in the Public Art plan for Rhodes. This exciting project seeks to establish strong connections with the local community at Rhodes.

The main themes are in relation to the histories and stories of the local community. The process of social transformation from pre-colonial indigenous cultures, to industrial uses of the site then to urban renewal is an important story. Artworks could explore links with the past industrial history of the peninsular or connections between the river as a place of flux, change, and mode of transportation critical to its success.

Station Precinct is a 3.15 hectare site in central Rhodes to the west of Rhodes Train Station. The Master Plan for this development site incorporates new mixed use development (including 1400 new dwellings and a retail and commercial hub) and public open space. A unique feature of the project is a heliostat architectural feature on one of the towers, which will guide sunlight to Rhodes Union Square. Future stages will involve additional residential towers, retail and commercial space and a multi-purpose leisure centre funded through contributions from a Voluntary Planning Agreement, with Council.

Installation

The vision is for a public artwork to be developed for a new pocket park in Station Precinct, Rhodes.  The art is to be innovative, vibrant, have integrity, and be of the highest quality. It is to connect with the local culturally diverse community, site and environment and create a meaningful sense of place.  Objectives require the artwork be integrated into the open space, and to be contemporary and relevant.

As such, Council is seeking EOI from innovative architectural public artists that have experience in public domain projects valued at up to $300,000. Artists wishing to submit an EOI for this project must provide the requested information outlined in the EOI document. The closing date and time for EOI submissions is Tuesday 11th June at 2pm. interested parties are required to register via the e-Tendering Portal www.tenderlink.com/canadabay to download documents.

All enquiries should be directed via the Tenderlink portal. If you experience difficulties accessing the above website please call the Tenderlink helpdesk on 1800 233 533.

Integrated Public Art at Station Precinct Rhodes

The vision is for a major public artwork to be integrated fretwork design into the architectural design and surrounds of the precinct.  The art is to be innovative, vibrant, have integrity, and be of the highest quality. It is to connect with the local culturally diverse community, site and environment and create a meaningful sense of place. Objectives require the artwork be integrated into the built environment, and to be contemporary and relevant.

The opportunity is for an artist to create a fretwork design to be integrated into key building columns and elements along the Walker Street entrances to the site. Fretwork is a decorative design or low relief, or cut outs on a solid background. Fretwork is commonly used to adorn/decorate architecture, and was originally an ornamental design.

Playground Upgrade - Roberts Reserve, Five Dock - CLOSED

As part of our Let’s Play Playground Strategy we are preparing to upgrade the existing neighbourhood playground at Roberts Reserve.

The aim of this project is to enhance the existing play area for families and young children in our local community.

What will the works involve?

Following our preliminary community consultation in August this year about the Roberts Reserve playground upgrade, a design has been prepared and is now available for comment.

The proposed new play equipment includes a play unit, a carousel, log steppers and new playground soft fall mulch. The existing double swing set will be retained and a shade sail will also be installed. It is expected the works will cost $75,000.

Two potential locations for the new equipment were provided for comment during the preliminary community consultation. Feedback was strongly in favour of locating all play equipment next to the existing double swing set in the northern portion of the reserve. This will increase the passive play area for activities, such as kicking a ball, in the southern portion of the reserve.  

We are interested in your comments on the proposed design and invite you to submit your feedback via email to council@canadabay.nsw.gov.au or phone 9911 6555.
