The Sydney developer, CBD Core, is continuing its residential development in the popular Hills District suburb of Castle Hill, in the booming North West Sydney growth corridor.

Having recently completed Oriel Castle Hill, one of the most impressive developments in the area, the long standing developer is set to create another two residential apartments buildings at 19 Ashford Avenue.

The low-rise towers, dubbed Ashford and Partridge for their locations fronting Ashford Avenue and Partridge Avenue, will rise six levels and home 67 apartments within the new Showground Station precinct at Castle Hill, which is currently experiencing substantial urban change from the existing single-family dwellings of suburban character.

The project will be a mix of two studio apartments, 11 one-bedroom apartments, 39 two-bedders, 15 three-bedroom apartments.

LFA Pacific, who are the architecture team behind the design, noted in their design statement that the proposed development will create dwelling choice and opportunities for families in the surrounding suburbs, as family needs change. The studios and one-bedroom apartments will provide an affordable entry in to the housing market.

LFA suggested the development will contribute to the desired future character of the precinct which is defined as 'to become an attractive and well-connected neighbourhood that achieves housing targets, creates vibrant, safe and desirable places, reinforces the garden shire character and lifestyle and is supported by necessary infrastructure'.

The communal open space in the central courtyard will provide passive and active recreational opportunities, with a swimming pool, fitness and play areas, and outdoor barbecue space.

CBD Core design and build for their demographic, which is predominantly locals who live within a five kilometre radius.

"We have everyone from retirees, downsizers, young families and singles interested in our projects," a spokesperson for the CBD Core team told Urban.

"We keep projects small in size in comparison to some of the towers that are popping up around the area, and we listen to the community and buyer feedback when creating our developments."

CBD Core's most recent project, Oriel Castle Hill, a $75 million collection of 78 apartments, completed last year. CBD Core describe Oriel as more of a hotel than a residential apartment block.

"It's a hotel without the concierge," CBD Core say. "When we pop in, we see the residents walking around in their robes."

A testament to the quality of the build of Oriel and the reputation of CBD Core, Oriel only has one apartment remaining, with the majority of sales secured during a COVID-hit stop-start year in the property industry.

Their next project, set to launch in April, will be Astrid, a block of 94 apartments just behind Oriel.

Astrid will feature extensive work from home facilities, with a conscious effort to create both indoor and outdoor communal spaces, outside of the apartments so those working from home have the option to still be away from where they reside. Residents will also have access to the a gym, swimming pool, and a rooftop with barbecues and seating spaces.

"Oriel was the first apartment building complex in the Showground Station Precinct to be approved, so we need to continue to improve on that high bar we've already set ourselves," CBD Core said.
