Park Lane, Central Park

Park Lane is a quiet shared street, but provides a critical link to Chippendale Green

Park Lane is unassuming, yet inviting. Residents walk their dogs along a cobblestone shared street and cyclists dismount in communal parking bays before entering their apartments. A car slows and waves to neighbours sitting on timber benches under the shade of the water gums and flame trees. Flanked by highly textured, residential buildings designed by renowned architects Johnson Pilton Walker (JPW), the street invites residents, cyclists and vehicles to exist in harmony.

The ground plane is eclectic; starting from planting that complements the local palette of Chippendale, right down to the paving palette that marries back into Central Park’s materials selection. Park Lane is a quiet shared street, but provides a critical link to Chippendale Green and access to shopping, cafes and commercial buildings.
