The northwest growth centre is seeing significant population growth with local services and amenities struggling to keep apace of housing supply.
Dickson Rothschild began with review of a recently rezoned site in north west Sydney which provided opportunities for a local retail hub and medium density housing. An initial vision was produced seeking to create a mixed-use community hub that breaks down the traditional segregation of land uses in new suburbs. The Shopping Centre was proposed as a mixed-use development with Woolworths as the lead tenant, with speciality retail, a gym, childcare centre, public open space and 40 apartments above. Key challenges were staging of the development in relation to major road upgrades, a land swap with Council and development of a local centre hub in a new and relatively untested market.
