Stockland has lodged a Development Application with Cumberland Council for a mixed use residential apartment and retail development in Merrylands, western Sydney. 

The DA includes plans for more than 500 new apartments, designed by Turner Architects, across five buildings that will range in height from 11 to 17 storeys.

Gavin Tonnet, national head of apartments and mixed use development at Stockland, said it will provide the vital missing link between Merrylands Road and McFarlane Street. 

Andrew Whitson, chief executive officer, residential at Stockland, said Stockland is broadening customer reach through the development of new townhouses and apartments, with an initial focus on opportunities on sites in the existing portfolio.

"By expanding our Residential business strategy to incorporate more medium density and apartment projects within our greenfield communities and at standalone sites, where we’re driving the urban renewal process, we’re able to diversify our earnings and be more responsive to the changing demands of the residential property market,” he said.

The new development will be adjacent Stockland Merrylands Shopping Centre, which was redeveloped and expanded in recent years at a total cost of $395 million.
