The last station on the north-west arm of the Sydney Metro, Tallawong Station is set to become a benchmark medium-density housing projects thanks to the NSW housing developer Landcom’s February master plan – designed to help a city manage an increase in residents with housing growth around transport nodes.
Landcom is the state owned NSW Government’s land and property development organisation that works with government, the private and not-for-profit sectors to deliver housing projects that provide social and economic benefits to the people of NSW.
The developer Deicorp, has just been appointed by Landcom and Sydney Metro to deliver a $700 million 1,100 home project at Tallawong Station.
“Landcom is excited to be working with Deicorp to create new places for communities to live, work, shop and play with the easy convenience of the Metro nearby,” Landcom chief executive John Brogden said.
The Tallawong development includes medium density housing of two to eight floors dwellings supported with 9,000 sq m of community (including a public park), retail and commercial space.
Bridge Housing Group will operate the five percent of affordable community housing set aside for rentals.
This is the first roll out in a series of housing hubs with a total of 11,000 homes to be delivered between Tallawong and Epping over the next 10 years.
We know that an increase in transport infrastructure with access to fast trains can transform the returns on investment for an area combined with getting the right mix of green spaces, shops, entertainment, education and medical care, so we’ll be watching this first roll out with great interest.
