Watpac delivers Country Garden Australia’s first project

Country Garden Australia’s first project, ‘Ryde Garden’, in Sydney’s North Ryde, has officially reached completion, with the company stating Ryde Garden's completion represents a very important milestone for the company. The $580m residential development comprises 830 apartments across three high-rise towers of 12 to 28 storeys, situated on a 17,580 sqm site within the North Ryde Station Urban Activation Zone. 

Construction of Ryde Garden commenced in May 2016 with Watpac delivering the expansive Bates Smart-designed development, with buyers now moving into the first of three towers, with settlement of the other two towers also recently announced. Ryde Garden will ultimately become home to around 2,500 residents, who will enjoy uninterrupted views encompassing the city and the surroundings.

The development is set around a central landscaped 4,000 sqm park designed by Aspect Studios also designed the landscaped rooftop gardens which come complete with BBQ’s. Further resident amenity has been provided by way of parking for 730 cars and 336 bikes, a private 30-metre lap pool, gymnasium, childcare facility, street level retail and concierge.

Ryde Garden is also conveniently located in close proximity to Macquarie Centre, restaurants, cinemas and other lifestyle facilities and well served by the North Ryde (underground) Station connecting the development to Macquarie University and Chatswood.

What they say...

Ryde Garden is a fine example of Watpac’s expertise in delivering multi-use developments and we’re pleased to have been able to bring this project to life for Country Garden Australia. The construction process required disciplined project management capabilities, given at its peak 550 workers were working on site each day, contributing to a monthly turnover of around $21 million.

The complexities of building three towers in a two and half year period required meticulous planning and engagement, and I congratulate the Watpac project team for their efforts and commitment to delivering an outstanding development for Country Garden Australia. Country Garden Australia envisioned a precinct that would be enjoyed by residents and the local community alike, and I congratulate them on achieving this.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with their team and thank them for entrusting Watpac with their first project in the country. We look forward to continuing this relationship into the future and hope there are many more projects together to follow.

- Martin Monro, Watpac Managing Director

 

It’s incredibly exciting to see a labour of love come to fruition after a lot of hard work from our internal team and all of our project stakeholders. We are extremely proud of this project, especially given it’s our first in Australia.  It’s proof of our capabilities in delivering masterplanned communities that locals are proud to call home.

It’s also testament to our versatility and capacity to deliver across various asset classes, as we are better known for large-scale house and land communities featuring major infrastructure and amenity, such as our ‘Windermere’ project outside Melbourne, which has just commenced site works.

We are really looking forward to the Ryde Garden community developing as all three towers become inhabited.  For us, it’s not just about building houses, but more about developing engaging communities... that’s why we build.

- Dr Guotao Hu, CEO of Country Garden Australia
