Apartment developer Conquest is on course to realise a new vision for its segment of the Strathfield Golf Course redevelopment.

Having already taken the project to site works, Conquest is seeking council consent in order to replace two approved residential buildings with fresh Woods Bagot designs. Charged with creating a superior residential outcome, Woods Bagot has removed part of Building B's footprint and added additional residential levels above.

The design enhancements over the existing approved buildings are set to yield improved solar access and additional open space between both buildings.

Taken to market as The Greens, Conquest will bring to fruition the apartment development across a re-zoned land plot which included the former practice fairway, clubhouse and car park which was sold by Strathfield Golf Club during 2015.

Conquest's initial plans included 178 apartments, with the Woods Bagot scheme bumping the number marginally upward to 183. Bulk excavations for basement levels have begun in earnest for The Greens although its exterior composition is subject to final approval.

82 apartments are slated for Building A whilst 101 are housed within the taller Building B. The overall development mix consists of 2 studio, 15 single, 139 dual, 17 triple and 2 quad bedroom apartments.

Despite the planning manouvre, Conquest has noted the development is expected to be complete by mid 2020.

One of a number of Sydney clubs that have sold down their land holdings in order to attain financial security, Strathfield Golf Club sold more than 20,239 square metres of land for  $50.5 million.

Wedged between the gold course proper and Strathfield South High School, the easternmost portion of the sold land is under the control of Metro Property Development. 50 lower density townhouses are nearing completion, with the higher density Conquest apartments on the western portion of the site. 

The three and four bedroom luxury townhouses overlooking Strathfield Golf Course are known as Fairway Residences.
