Developer Mulpha's bid to significantly upscale their its Norwest Business Park precinct within Baulkham Hills is gathering momentum, as evidenced by their latest residential project which is slated to reach 23 levels.

At 2-6 Maitland Place, the proposal which was submitted during late February is the developer's first tangible manoeuvre post Mulpha's announcement during late 2017 that they would undertake a considerable expansion of the Norwest Business Park with the aim of creating a smart city. This expansion would see an additional $3 billion pumped into the expanded 377-hectare masterplanned precinct.

Jackson Teece have designed 2-6 Maitland Place; it features vertical 'green DNA' strands running the height of the building and green terraces, in addition to substantial landscaping around the tower form.

131 apartments are included within the proposal, which would be considerably taller than existing surrounding buildings. The apartment matrix sees 32 studio or single bedroom, 72 dual bedroom and 27 triple bedroom apartments.

The tower is slated to reach 69.8 metres.

Mulpha is also developing Haven Apartments on a nearby site fronting Solent Circuit; Haven along with a completed residential building adjoining it stand at the 10-11 level mark.

Construction firm Taylor is undertaking the $44 million build of Haven Apartments, and is well into construction. 80 new dwellings within Haven's 11 storey form are supplemented by 4 retail tenancies and 3 levels of underground car parking.

Only during December a further, and larger, planning application was lodged for 7 Maitland Place which is directly opposite Mulpha's latest proposal.

Four separate buildings amounting to 287 apartments are proposed in the scheme created by architecture firm TURNER for BHL 7 Norwest Dev Pty Ltd. Ranging between 6-24 levels, the buildings are located above a 3 level basement for 470 vehicles.

Spanning 9,630 square metres, the site under the proposal would see 4,500 square metres dedicated toward open green space.

7 Maitland Place's status has been noted at 'Stop the Clock' suggesting amendments to the design are required for the proposal not to fall foul of planning authorities.
