For the past 10 years Celestino has been working on some of the largest and most innovative property projects in New South Wales and Queensland. This month the company is preparing to deliver its two flagship projects - The Gables Box Hill and Sydney Science Park.
Celestino has lodged development applications for the 300 land lots in The Gables Box Hill, which is a $4 billion masterplanned community and has appointed multi-award winning architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp to design the first 10 hectare precinct in its $5 billion Sydney Science Park in Western Sydney.
The first two partnerships have also been secured for Sydney Science Park. The Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta has entered into an agreement to build the first purpose-built STEM (Science Technology Engineering Maths) school in Australia on the site and the CSIRO will be establishing a research and development innovation zone, the second of its type in Australia.
Chief Executive Officer of Celestino John Vassallo said, "The Gables Box Hill and Sydney Science Park will be two unique masterplanned communities that reflect best practise in sustainability, design and innovation. To realise our vision we have engaged some of the country's leading architects, town planners, engineers, sustainability consultants and project managers."

The Gables Box Hill covers 330 hectares and will comprise over 4,000 dwellings, a proposed large lake central to development, a 5.5 hectare town centre, active and passive open spaces, a school, new roads and associated infrastructure. A variety of lot sizes will be released in stage one within the next couple of months ranging from 450 sqm to over 600 sqm.
Sydney Science Park, located in Luddenham is a fully integrated mixed use urban community that will create an internationally recognised epicentre for research and development in the key growth areas of food and agribusiness, energy and health. Celestino's vision and commitment is to build one of the world's leading centres for science and innovation.
This new science city covering 280 hectares will be one of the largest centres of its type. It will comprise 340,000 sqm of commercial space, 100,000 sqm for education providers, 3,400 dwellings, a town centre, urban lakes, cultural precinct and extensive recreational facilities.
Celestino is owned by the Baiada family, owners of the trusted brands of Steggles and Lilydale. The company currently holds over 20,000 residential land lots plus a mix of industrial, retail, commercial and high density sites in New South Wales and Queensland.
