It’s now a year since Coles Supermarket commenced trading in a mixed-used development by Greenland Australia. The key to the centre’s growing popularity is convenience – it’s located directly underneath 900 apartments and with direct connection to the Metro North West Line, allowing visitors to hop off the metro and walk straight into the centre via a pedestrian and cycle bridge. The integrated design was a finalist in The Urban Developer’s Excellence in Construction Innovation Award.
The Metro Station, which opened in 2019, has been a game-changer for residents. Rook Partners leasing executive Paul Trachtenberg says by 2024, the North West Line will link right through to Waterloo, cutting travel time from North Ryde to Town Hall to less than 30 minutes.
The delivery of the long-awaited metro line and associated infrastructure has underpinned the area’s steady population growth. According to Location IQ figures, the trade area population is expected to grow by more than 60 per cent over the next decade, reaching 31,830 residents.
The NSW government has revealed its plan to transform Macquarie Park into an economic and employment powerhouse, adding over 7,600 new homes to the area plus 14ha of new parks, squares, plazas, cycleways and 2.7ha of enhanced open space over the next two decades.
Proudly managed by Rook Partners, Lachlan’s Square Village is now home to Liquorland, Snap Fitness, Leaf Café, Shoga Japanese Cuisine, Totally Male Barber, Chicken V, Saigon Summer, Hey Juice, Ocean Nails and Beauty and a convenient pharmacy.
