Plans unveiling the $135 million Balmain Leagues Club proposal to bring the Balmain Tigers back to their Rozelle home have been released.
Chinese-backed property developer Heworth lodged the development application for the $135 million project last month, on the 152 Victoria road site, despite the possibility the NSW government is looking to compulsorily acquire the site for a major infrastructure project.
The project, which will include a designated component for affordable housing, will also include a residential component of 173 apartments.
Designed by Architects Scott Carver, the centrepiece of the site will be the Balmain Tigers home, a new 2200sq m club.
Scott Carver director Doug Southwell said the project, called “Rozelle Laneways”, will offer a variety of uses ranging from retail, food offers, collaborative and commercial space, affordable and private dwellings to be anchored by the club.
