The third stage of Parkland Estate will soon launch with 213 new apartments in the landmark Rouse Hill development.
Developed by Capital Corporation and designed by architectural firm Turner, the six to nine storey apartment development will incorporate cutting edge, environmentally sustainable design elements with high-end finishes and spacious living areas.
Construction of the first stage of the development, which includes 62 terrace homes, is already underway and is expected to be completed in late 2017.
In total, more than 700 dwellings will be built within the $500 million development.
Capital Residential Developments Development Manager Joel Wood said Parkland Estate was an opportunity to build a new community, and not just another housing and unit development.
“There was the opportunity to build significantly more apartments on the site, but we chose to prioritise liveability and design,” he said.
“We are providing more than 5000 square metres of green space for the project and a number of communal facilities which will encourage social interaction and foster a neighbourhood community.
“This is how people want to live today. They want the convenience of being close to major transport networks and retail precincts, but also desire access to parks and other amenities.”
The Central Park area of the project, which will be completed in 2018, includes a 17m lap pool, playground facilities, grass areas, a tennis court, communal rooms and a BBQ pavilion.
Providing further lifestyle benefits for residents, Parkland Estate will be surrounded by several parks, bikeways and sporting fields.
PRDnationwide Norwest Director David Inkster said Parkland Estate is the biggest residential development currently taking place in the Rouse Hill area, and is expected to house in excess of 1,500 residents.
“The first stage of the project was very successful, with all terrace houses selling out very quickly and 75% of the first release of the apartments already sold.
“The project has proved to be particularly popular with families seeking an active, outdoor lifestyle and investors who see the long-term potential of the location.
The site is located within short walking distance (300m) of the future Cudgegong Road Train Station which will be part of the $8.3billion North West Rail Link.
Situated in the booming North West Growth Corridor, Parkland Estate is close to several schools, shopping precincts, numerous restaurants and entertainment venues.
In the coming years the area will be a hub of activity, with a number of major new residential, commercial and retail precincts planned.
The next stage of the project comprises 75 one bedroom, 100 two bedroom and 38 three bedroom apartments.
DA-approved construction is expected to begin in early 2017.
