Civil and subdivision works has begun on Dahua Group Australia’s (Dahua) $1 billion New Breeze project located in Sydney’s south west, representing the largest masterplanned community in the Edmondson Park area.
New Breeze in Bardia spans 89 hectares and will comprise 1280 new homes with a range of housing types. The development will include large high quality parks and playgrounds, a sports oval, bike and cycle paths and 40 hectares of open spaces for recreational activities.
Dahua purchased the land parcel from UrbanGrowth NSW late last year, and while the price was not disclosed, it could have been a possible $300m, according to The Australian Financial Review.
Lot sizes in the estate vary from 250 sqm to over 647.7 sqm with prices starting from $330,000 to $670,000.
Civil contractor TRN Group was awarded a contract for civil infrastructure and subdivision works for the first 360 lots.
The company will construct the new McDonald Road which will ultimately become a collector road linking New Breeze to the future Edmondson Park town centre. It will connect the existing McDonald Road to the south and Campbelltown Road and the town centre to the north.
Eric Li, General Manager for Dahua Group Australia comments, “This is a major milestone for the business and is our first masterplanned project in Sydney. We are committed to developing a project that the community will be proud to call home. Partnerships have been formed with recognised experts in the local market to deliver our vision to create a thriving liveable community.”
Kith Clark, Development Director for New Breeze and APP Corporation added, “Hundreds of jobs are being created for local businesses before, during and after construction for this project. New Breeze is located in one of the most highly sought after locations in the south west.
“It has been specifically designed to integrate with, as well as complement its existing surroundings including the new Edmondson Park Train Station and future multi-million dollar shopping centre and town centre. The first residents are expected to move in around mid-June next year.”
He added, “It was also pleasing to hear last week, the state government’s announcement to continue funding major infrastructure projects in the south west. This announcement reinforces the government’s commitment to the ongoing growth in the south west corridor. New Breeze is well located to capitalise on this expenditure.”
The state government has committed to invest over $3.6 billion in its Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan over a 10 year period. Investment in transport (bus and rail), health, education and community infrastructure is part of this plan.
New Breeze will also benefit from major road upgrades underway for Campbelltown Road and Camden Valley Way and the proposed second airport at Badgerys Creek.
New Breeze is only eight kilometres from Liverpool’s CBD and about 45 minutes from Sydney CBD. It is at the gateway to the expanding Sydney South West Growth Centre and provides easy access to the proposed second airport at Badgerys Creek.
