Global developer Greenland Australia’s ambitious new project ‘nbh’ at Lachlan’s Line will offer residents an unrivalled level of connectivity reflecting its status as a true ‘transit orientated development’ and represents one of Sydney’s most sustainable transit orientated developmentsNbh is uniquely positioned to take advantage of major surrounding transport infrastructure serviced by two major railway stations, North Ryde Train Station and Macquarie Park Train Station as well as its own dedicated bus station on Epping Road.
Located only 250 metres opposite nbh, North Ryde Train Station provides direct access to major regional centres such as Chatswood, St Leonards and North Sydney as well as the Sydney CBD, while Macquarie Park Train and Bus Interchange is only 1.2 kilometres from the development, providing direct access to Epping and Parramatta in the west of the city.
In a further benefit to future residents of nbh, as part of the Sydney Metro Northwest project, this suburban commuter-style train line will be converted into a metro-style line over 2018. By the first half of 2019, residents won’t need a timetable. Trains will arrive every four minutes in peak hour, almost four times the number of trains running in the peak hour today.
For car owners, the M2 Motorway runs directly adjacent to the precinct’s eastern boundary, providing access to the Sydney CBD within a 20-minute drive via the Lane Cove Tunnel. Additionally, the M7 Motorway is less than 20 minutes’ drive away, providing access to the western and south western suburbs of Sydney, Blue Mountains and Canberra.
By 2019, residents will even have direct freeway access to the Central Coast and far northern suburbs of Sydney when the construction of NorthConnex, linking the M1 to the M2, completes.
Greenland Australia, Managing Director, Sherwood Luo, said that nbh was the company’s most highly transit orientated development to date in Australia.
“We are excited to be offering future residents connection to the kinds of transportation amenity only seen in other major global cities such as New York, London or Singapore,” Mr Luo said.
“The broader Macquarie Park region is set to become one of the fastest growing and most desirable residential precincts in Sydney. But without proper transport infrastructure, these kinds of developments are not sustainable.”
Mr Luo added that Sydney faces a major challenge in accommodating a growing population but also ensuring that the city has appropriate levels of transportation infrastructure to support its growth.
“The kind of transport infrastructure surrounding nbh can support the levels of density we require to accommodate the growing population in the suburb,” said Mr Luo.
“If you look to cities like Tokyo or Hong Kong, major mixed-use residential precincts are often centred around transportation hubs. nbh is a prime example of such a transport orientated development.
“Providing additional and improved transport in and out of major growth areas is key to residential planning as fewer apartments are sold without car spaces, and options such as car sharing are becoming more popular.”
