Penrith RSL Club plans to add a $30 million two-storey extension to its western Sydney venue which will include a new function space and allow for reconfiguration of its existing bar, lounge, dining and games room.
The new addition will also assist with improving the existing foyer and entry areas together with creating new retail spaces at the ground floor frontage to Tindale St.
“The development seeks to infill an existing underdeveloped section of the Tindale St frontage, with a two-storey built element that will form a western extension of the club building,” the DA submitted to Penrith City Council said.
“That new building space provides a distinguishable streetscape element but maintains the scale, bulk and height of the existing club building. This space will provide new function room facilities for the club.
The proposed works on the 13,525 sqm site involve the removal of 45 car parking spaces from various locations, but off-street parking will remain for 467 vehicles in the existing undercroft and multi-level parking structure which remains unchanged.
Traffic surveys confirm there are substantial spare car parking spaces readily available on the site at all times.
“The new function space also allows for a reconfiguration of the bar, lounge, dining and games room within the existing building as well as improving the foyer and entry areas together with creating new retail spaces at the ground floor frontage to Tindale Street,” the submission added.
