The site was previously used for the Camden High School which opened in 1956 before moving to a new site in Cawdor in 2001. Part of the site was used as the Camden gasworks from 1911 until 1975 when it then became part of the school grounds.

On 8 September 2009 Council granted deferred commencement consent to development application 2008/644/1 for the redevelopment of the site. A history table that details a chronology of the approved development and its subsequent modifications is provided below.

The remediation of contaminated land on the site was completed between 2017 and 2018. Works are nearing completion on approved buildings 1 and 2 near the corner of John Street and Exeter Street. The principal certifier for those works is Qusai El-Jurf (Building and Development Certifier BDC 2884). The principal certifier is responsible for overseeing the development’s construction phase and completing mandatory building inspections to ensure that building standards are met. The principal certifier can be contacted on (02) 9715 2555.
