Denvell Property Group has received development approval for its $240 million masterplanned development in Rouse Hill, in Sydney’s north-west.
The Terry Road project will feature 332 residences across eight low-rise buildings of up to four-storeys, on a 21,280sq m site.
Asia-Pacific investment firm Denvell has been a long-term investor in the area.
Rothelowman was approached 18 months ago by Denvell managing director Joshua Tsai to design the development.
Rothelowman principal Ben Pomroy said that the brief from the client was to create a project that would provide an innovative design outcome and a landmark project that creates an “oasis of gardens and courtyards” with a broad array of housing options.
“There were existing houses and new apartments proposed in the Rouse Hill market but nothing being provided to service the ‘missing middle’ of compact living for families,” Pomroy said.

“From an architectural perspective, our clients desire for a truly unique project meant we could masterplan the large site, and develop a scheme that creates an urban oasis via a series of private landscaped areas around which terraces and apartments are arranged to draw the landscape into each home.”
Comprising a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and terrace-style dwellings, the project is marketed to owner-occupiers, families and investors.
Denvell’s project site is within north-western Sydney’s residential and employment growth centre and Sydney’s Metro Northwest metro line.
Box Hill, a suburb running adjacent to Rouse Hill, has experienced strong confidence from developers who are all too eager to buy up land since a rezoning in 2013, which released over 950-hectares of land for urban development.
Major developments in the area include The Gables, which commenced in 2016 in Box Hill and comprises over 4,000 homes, a town centre, 85-hectares of open spaces, a community facility, two sporting fields, a primary school, new roads and associated infrastructure covering over 330 hectares.
Construction on Denvell’s Rouse Hill development will commence this year, with completion planned to coincide with the opening of the Metro Northwest in mid-2019.
