NSW state developer Landcom has announced it is putting out tenders for the sale of two more lots of land at Lachlan’s Line, North Ryde, one of the few remaining brownfield sites for housing development in Sydney’s northern suburbs.
The two new sites are both already rezoned for high-density development and will accommodate up to a further 1,000 apartments.
Precinct comes to life
Greenland and Frasers Property Australia have already trailblazed two projects in the precinct, with Greenland building the “nbh” 900 unit project that includes the Lachlan’s Square Village retail and community centre development that Rook Partners is currently leasing, and Frasers site north of the North Ryde metro with 380 units. Residents at “nbh” start moving in next month (Nov 19).
A future stage 4 release will complete the Lachlan’s Line precinct and bring the total number of apartments to approximately 2,700.
Landcom chief executive John Brogden said, “The sites were ripe for development, given their strategic location on the metro line and proximity to the business park turned residential suburb of Macquarie Park. Landcom has already delivered lead-in infrastructure and services to prepare the superlots for development, as well as public domain spaces, parks and regional road upgrades.”
The new footbridge for pedestrians and cyclists linking Lachlan’s Line with North Ryde station and the business park is under construction on-site and due to be installed early next year.
The 178 metre long bridge will make Lachlan’s Square Village an easy walk from North Ryde Station with its new Metro Train link and the established business park.
