High-tech apartments are winning over homebuyers in Sydney's west.
Marsden Central, a proposed masterplanned community in the new north-west suburb of Marsden Park, has sold 80 per cent of its first release stock.
Due to the success of first-release sales, Sydney-based developer Kanebridge has now brought forward its second-release sales six weeks early.
The development will eventually consist of four buildings designed around a central courtyard, where each building will range in height from four to seven storeys.
The project's first stage, dubbed Sole, will cost $146 million and will offer 254 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
The Jackson Teece-designed units will come equipped with smart-home automation and internet speeds of up to 10 Gigabits per second via a fibre network, said to be 10 times faster than the NBN.
Marsden Central's smart home hub will allow homeowners to have access to a wall panel and app which will allow them to control their lighting, temperature, blinds, TV and video intercom, as well as book local community facilities such as tennis courts.
Marsden Central will also give residents exclusive access to a function room and a cinema room.
“Early feedback from buyers has been that high-speed internet, smart-home automation and socially integrated spaces are the winning formula,” Kanebridge development manager Ronnie Rahme said.
“Our buyers are hugely impressed with these standard inclusions in such affordably priced apartments – particularly families, who love communal features such as the cinema room.”
At this stage, no builder has been appointed for Marsden Central.
Construction will begin in late 2019 with the first stage expected by late 2020.
