Early works begin at nbh at Lachlan’s Line – Macquarie Park

20 February 2017

Early works have now commenced at Greenland Australia’s nbh development at Lachlan’s Line, with the largest of two sites at the highly anticipated Macquarie Park precinct now taking shape in the form of site hoarding, a construction compound and ‘benching’ earthworks.

The construction of remaining site infrastructure, six residential buildings, landscaping and other development components will be carried out by Greenland’s chosen builder (TBA) after earthworks and perimeter piling are completed by the principal earthworks contractor.

Greenland Australia Managing Director, Sherwood Luo, explains the significance of this work: “The ‘live upstairs and shop downstairs’ vision we’ve talked about for months is now slowly becoming reality.

Upwards of 4,000 cubic metres of dirt is being removed from the site each day to make way for underground parking levels. With each truckload removed, we get that much closer to building the 879 new residences, all-new retail precinct and entertainment quarter, Lachlan’s Square, that will form Macquarie Park’s newest and best neighbourhood.”

Greenland Australia and its principal contractor have a Traffic Management Plan and other site controls in place during early site works to minimise any disruption to local residences and businesses as well as traffic surrounding the site.

This plan ensures that earth moving vehicles enter and leave the site via Wicks Road only and tracking of dirt is minimised onto the newly completed loop road. Steel plates protect the existing paved site exit point and traffic controllers are onsite to ensure safe separation of pedestrians and heavy traffic when Lachlan’s Line precinct is opened to the public a little later this year.

Greenland Australia procured its two sites at the highest point of Lachlan’s Line, totalling 1.53-hectares, to build the mixed-residential development (Lots 104 and 105). Greenland will operate within the parameters of the City of Ryde’s consent and will proactively liaise with the project’s relevant authorities in accordance with consent conditions.

UrbanGrowth NSW is Lachlan’s Line masterplan developer. Lachlan’s Line is a 9-hectare precinct that forms part of the North Ryde Station Precinct and is centrally located between Macquarie Park and North Ryde train stations in Macquarie Park, Sydney. Greenland is developing the first two lots within Lachlan’s Line. The site is 250 metres from North Ryde Train Station with direct access to Epping, Chatswood, North Sydney, City and Parramatta train station, and 1.2-km or 10 minutes’ walk to Macquarie Park Train Station and bus interchange.

nbh’s ‘High Street’ will include a large anchor supermarket, health and fitness club, the precinct’s medical centre and childcare centre, along with its ‘Eat Street’. A secondary square called ‘Laura’s Place’ will be more intimate and is proposed to hold cafes and restaurants with alfresco dining. It will overlook the precinct’s 3000sqm Central Park and will have a major through-flow of foot traffic from the Lachlan’s Line masterplan.

nbh at Lachlans Line falls within a large employment catchment with major global brands in technology including (Microsoft, Sony) telecommunications (Optus, Foxtel), pharmaceuticals (Johnson & Johnson) and medical research (Cochlear).
