Residential property developer and builder Sekisui House is reserving 30 apartments in its next stage of its $1 billion masterplanned Norwest community for front-line workers of first home-buyers.

They've brought forward the launch of stage three, known as Lumia, due to meet strong demand in previous stages from downsizers, young families and first home buyers driven by government incentives.

Lumia is made up of 330 apartments inspired by nature.

Designed by Turner Architects, stage one of Lumia comprises 203 apartments, a mix of 71 one beds, 118 two beds, 13 three bedroom apartments and a single four bedroom penthouse.

Lumia will sit in the middle of The Orchards community alongside Strangers Creek. Turner Architects director Dan Szway says that Lumia holds a unique position within The Orchards precinct and Norwest.

"It has a strong connection to the natural surrounds whilst enjoying the emerging urban amenity offered by Norwest Business Park and the new Metro Norwest station which are within easy walking distance.

Sekisui House sales manager David Lee says their success in 2020 was primarily due to the government's HomeBuilder Grant as well as the first home buyers grant and full stamp duty exemption.

“These government incentives have brought forward the launch of Lumia, intentionally designed with a large range of smaller apartments which is expected to accommodate first home buyer purchasers," Lee says.

"“Buyer confidence is at an all-time high with the Reserve Bank recently indicating that the cash rate will remain steady for three years.

“The Orchards is one of the most significant residential masterplanned communities to be introduced in New South Wales and is taking urban rejuvenation and luxury living in Norwest to another level.”
