Extent Heritage prepared a range of heritage reports and documentation in response to development proposal at a rare 19th century warehouse building. The building is highly significant in its ability to demonstrate the functional and spatial characteristics of a building type that was an essential component of the commercial development of late 19th and early 20th century Sydney.
346-348 Kent Street has historic, aesthetic and scientific significance deriving from its unique ability to evoke the character of, and demonstrate in one place, the type of construction, pattern of development and use of late 19th Century commercial buildings close to the wharfage in the western portion of Sydney.
Extent Heritage were engaged to undertake heritage impact assessment, archival documentation and to prepare heritage policy in response to a development proposal regarding the lobby, lift, firestair and courtyard. The works resulted in the preparation of the following documents:
Conservation Management Plan
Statement of Heritage Impact
This CMP aimed to provide balanced guidance to achieve both operational and conservation objectives for the place. From here, the assessment documentation responded to the policies and guidelines outlined in the CMP.
In January 2016 AHMS and Futurepast Heritage merged to form Extent Heritage. EXTENT offers the most comprehensive range of built heritage, archaeology and Aboriginal heritage services available within the Australian and Asia Pacific region.
