Epping is one step closer to welcoming an exciting new mixed-use precinct after an official sod turning ceremony was held for Cbus Property’s landmark development The Langston late last week. The ceremony is to celebrate embarking on the next phase of development, following completion of the demolition of the site’s former Westpac building.

“Site works have progressed strongly since the start of 2019, with the team from Hutchinson Builders doing an amazing job in preparing the site for construction commencement. We’re now excavating and shoring up the basement levels, prior to starting work on the construction of The Langston’s three towers, so there will be a major transformation by the end of 2019.”

- Adrian Pozzo, CEO of Cbus Property

Located in north-western Sydney, the mixed-use precinct is set to house three towers which will comprise of 19, 24 and 29 stories; as well as 1,681 square metres of retail space and 1,921 square metres of communal space. 

The Architectus-designed development will be located at the highest point in Epping and will offer some of the city’s best views of the Harbour Bridge and the Blue Mountains. Pedestrian access has been integrated throughout the precinct, connecting The Langston to the public library, Pembroke Street Park, as well as direct access to the new ultra-fast metro train service, with departures scheduled every four minutes during peak travel periods.

Build time for the first tower has been anticipated to take just over two years, with completion slated for the third quarter of 2021.

“The fact that we are now moving into the construction phase is a sign of our commitment to The Langston and to the future of Epping. We’re powering ahead with the assistance of Scott and the team at Hutchinson Builders, and we look forward to delivering a transformational, world-class project for the people of north-west Sydney.”
