Three years after lodging a development application for 900 apartments in Tallawong in Rouse Hill, local developer CDMA Australia has received planning proposal approval for the $700 million masterplanned project.

The Kann Finch-designed development at 34-42 Tallawong, directly opposite the Tallawong Metro Station and future Town Centre, will home 900 apartments across nine eight-level buildings, as well as a 2,200 sqm public plaza, pending further development approvals from the local council.

The new public piazza will comprise two main zones, one open paved piazza fronting the street and internal green lawns. The plaza will comprises a retail premise and public open space.

A green sp​ine comprising a village green lawn and communal facilities will run through the middle of the development which will be surrounded by an extensive running track.

The project is expected to be completed within six or seven years.

CDMA Australia Development Manager, Alex Guan, said after three years of coordination with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment and local Blacktown Council, the planning proposal was gazetted and officially signed off.

“The height limit of the buildings was increased to 26 metres and the residential yield was increased from 630 units to approximately 900 units subject to DA approval,” he confirmed.

“Significantly, the development has set a new precedent for heights in the area,” he said.

The concept design seeks to create an attractive landscape setting that reflects the surrounding natural bushland character of the Rouse Hill area, while providing a diverse range of outdoor passive and active communal spaces for the residential population.

The development will be conveniently located directly opposite the Tallawong Metro Station and new Town Centre which will house two major supermarkets including a Woolworths as well as other retailers.

CDMA has already seen strong demand for its current residential development, Rosella Place, which has sold $30 million worth of apartments since July.

Named after the vibrantly coloured Australian bird which is native to the Rouse Hill area, Rosella Place offers a peaceful, safe community with 357 apartments set across five mid-rise buildings located within a short 100m walk to the newly opened, Tallawong Metro Station.

CDMA Australia’s CEO Richard Wu said since CDMA had entered the Australian marketplace in 2017, the company’s development pipeline had grown gradually with three significant projects either underway or in planning.

“Our first project, Rosella Place has completed its first stage and is now sold out and settled while the second stage will start construction early in the new year.

“Our second project consisting of 900 apartments is located at 34 Tallawong Road and our third project consists of a large-scale masterplanned community in Leppington which we will work on in coming years.
