Developer Deicorp’s Western Sydney residential project has received development approval for stage two.

Deicorp’s Highline Westmead is inspired by the New York urban masterpiece of the same name.

 The $700 million residential project will be located at the corner of Hawkesbury Road and Darcy Road in Westmead and will comprise 900 apartments over 10 buildings, with a mix of seven to 23 storeys. 

Turner Architects have designed the mix of studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and lofts featuring private residents’ gardens, a lap pool and connected lounging pool section. 

There will also be communal kitchen, residents gym, dining and BBQ areas plus a level nine rooftop gardens with BBQs and views over Parramatta Park, Parramatta CBD and Sydney CBD. 

Stage one is expected to be completed at the end of 2019.

With successive governments investing billions in Westmead over four decades to prioritise it as a place for public health, research and the new knowledge economy, the suburb now provides over 18,000 specialised jobs and is expected to experience further growth as its population grows in proportion. 

“Westmead already represents Australia’s largest concentration of health services co-located with world-leading education and medical research,” said David Borger, director of the Sydney Business Chamber, Western Sydney, on behalf of Westmead Alliance. 

“There is an opportunity for Westmead to play a larger role in transforming Australia’s economy.” 

In 2013, the Westmead Alliance identified more than $68 million worth of public transport, access, parking and urban amenity improvements were needed to unlock the investment and jobs potential of the precinct. 

Deicorp says its project aims to fill the gap in demand for residential infrastructure.

“You attract talent by having a very exciting eco system, by having a great place to live and work,” says Lucy Turnbull AO, chief commissioner, Greater Sydney Commission said in a Deloitte report commissioned by Westmead Alliance," Borger says.
