New Macquarie Park community reaches ‘topping out’ milestone

Stage 1 of ‘nbh at Lachlan’s Line’ will deliver nearly 592 new dwellings
in the north-west Sydney suburb of Macquarie Park


Greenland Australia has held an official ‘topping out’ ceremony at its master-planned project in north-west Sydney, ‘nbh at Lachlan’s Line’, signifying the structural completion of the highest floor of the development.

The first stage of the ‘nbh at Lachlan’s Line’ development includes four towers of 17, 14, 14 and 11 storeys, and will comprise 592 apartments and 5,000sqm of retail floor space.

The ‘topping out’ milestone was celebrated by a gathering consisting of Greenland Australia representatives, project builders Ganellen, Landcom and other project consultants in a ceremony held on top of the 17-storey Nexus building, which boasts views to the Sydney CBD and over the neighbouring Lane Cove National Park.

In marking the occasion, Greenland Australia’s Managing Director, Sherwood Luo, spoke of the bright future for Macquarie Park and the ‘nbh at Lachlan’s Line’ community.

“Macquarie Park’s strong business community and central location means it is fast becoming one of Sydney’s most sought-after residential suburbs,” said Mr Luo.

“The area is well serviced by major transport connections such as the nearby North Ryde Metro Station, which is only 200 metres from site, with nbh residents to have direct access to the CBD via the Metro when it reopens for business in mid-2019, courtesy of a new footbridge which is being built by Landcom.

“Frequent bus services also run along the Epping Road corridor, and ultimately, these transport links will used by over 12,500 residents in the new Macquarie Park, which is set to become a highly connected urban village with a bright and promising future.”

Mr Luo also praised the efforts of Ganellen in delivering the nbh project to this point.

“Ganellen have been exceptional to work with and their team has ensured this project has remained on or ahead of schedule throughout,” added Mr Luo.

“The standard of their build is first-rate and will be integral in ensuring ‘nbh at Lachlan’s Line’ is a highly desirable community for the people of north-west Sydney when it completes in the second half of 2019.”

Mr Luo’s comments were backed by Ganellen CEO Peter Maneas, who said, “For a global Fortune 500 company such as Greenland to adapt and grow into the Australian market in such a short time is impressive.

“The relationship we have developed with Greenland Australia ensures our teams remain on track for an early completion, just as we did on Greenland’s Primus Hotel project in the Sydney CBD.

“This success is a credit to Greenland and their ability to work dynamically with us at a local level, despite their global scale and footprint.”

The development’s residential towers – known as Habitat, Hideaway, Hearth and Nexus – will wrap around the future Lachlan’s Square, which is set to become the community’s key retail destination, lined with supermarkets, food emporiums and essential services, as well as day care and playground facilities for young families.

Prices at Hearth start from $647,000 for a one-bedroom apartment – for further information and pricing, please call Greenland Australia on 1800 388 788.
