Taylor Square bike hub
Community bike hub in Taylor Square
The former T2 nightclub at Taylor Square is being transformed into a community bike hub, complete with a café and new spaces for meetings, film screenings, talks, retail and bike hire.
Council endorsed the concept design in March 2014. Following detailed design and planning, building work is likely to begin in early 2016.
In 2009, the City of Sydney purchased the former nightclub with plans to use it as a bike hub. This was supported by research that showed a bike hub could help reactivate the daytime economy in Oxford Street and make the area around Taylor Square safer.
More than 1,200 people ride past Taylor Square on an average weekday.
The building sits on a major intersection for bike riders connecting Woolloomooloo, Waterloo, Paddington and the inner city. The site is a central gathering space for pedestrians and bike riders.
The new-look facility will include flexible spaces to accommodate a range of uses including:
- a new café
- exhibition and event spaces
- a bike repairs and workshop space
- bike retail and hire
- studio spaces and meeting rooms for community groups.
