About Sydney Metro Northwest Urban Transformation Projects

The Sydney Metro Northwest Urban Transformation Projects aims to capture the opportunities created by the $8.3 billion Sydney Metro Northwest, which is currently under construction and due to open in 2019.

By integrating world leading urban transformation principles with innovative and sustainable urban design, Landcom is contributing to the creation of dynamic urban centres built around a world class transport link.

The mixed use precincts need to be safe, active and walkable, and respond to the unique local settings and market factors in the northwest. The project will attract investment, stimulate economic development, and provide a diverse range of jobs and housing. It will help to future-proof northwest Sydney and create economic resilience for the local community.

The associated urban renewal will transform the corridor over the next 20 to 30 years. Landcom is working with stakeholders to build a legacy for future generations in northwest Sydney.

What is proposed

The program of projects will deliver:

  • early activation around the stations precincts to ensure they will be safe and activated when opened in 2019 
  • vibrant and well-designed places that capitalise on the new metro system
  • creative and diverse housing solutions, retail and employment opportunities 
  • infrastructure to support the long term urban transformation of the corridor 
  • development that will stimulate the local economy and attract long term investment.

Current status

Initial studies are underway to define the projects and we have begun talking with councils, the community, adjoining landowners, industry and other stakeholders to understand their needs and aspirations for the future.

Notice of Development Application

Landcom is now consulting community about the residential subdivision plan and Concept Proposal for the site at 240-244 Beecroft Road in Epping.

What is proposed?

  • The land at 240-244 Beecroft Rd, Epping is currently in use for the construction of the Sydney Metro Northwest project.  When these construction works are complete, part of the site will become available for future development.
  • The Stage 1 proposed subdivision will create separate lots for the proposed residential development and the Epping Service Facility which is required for the future operations of the Sydney Metro railway.
  • The land for the residential development is marked as ‘proposed development’ on the plan overleaf.
  • Concept Proposal for development comprising:
  • building envelopes for mainly residential  building(s) up to a height of 48 metres
  • gross floor area (GFA) of approximately 40,000 m2
  • approximately 450 apartments
  • non-residential uses in the lower level/s of the building

The development outlined in the Concept Proposal will comply with relevant existing planning controls applying to the site. The Concept Proposal sets a framework for the future detailed design of buildings on the site.

Please note that a more detailed application will be required for the final form of development which could vary from the concept proposal.
