Lachlan’s Line is a new residential community at the south-eastern end of the Macquarie Park Corridor, in the North Ryde Station precinct.
North Ryde Station, on the Epping to Chatswood Rail Link, has been operating well below its patronage capacity primarily due to the surrounding precinct being largely undeveloped. Poor pedestrian, cycle and vehicular connectivity between the station and nearby commercial development to the east, south, north-west and residential catchments to the south and west further compound this. In order to rectify this situation, a transit oriented development encouraging station usage and improving connectivity was proposed for the vacant lands around North Ryde Station.
Urbis previously provided urban planning, social planning and retail economic advice to the NSW Department of Transport on rezoning the land, and subsequently assisted UrbanGrowth NSW to gain the necessary approvals to subdivide the site and establish the public domain.
Greenland successfully acquired the first development parcels at Lachlan’s Line from the NSW Government. Urbis has assisted Greenland to prepare a Development Application for their vision of a high quality, mixed use development close to green spaces and public transport, known to as NBH at Lachlan’s Line. The development comprises 885 apartments across two development lots, a new 6,000sqm retail centre, a community facility, and two new attractive public plazas.
Lachlan’s Line by Greenland will be a vibrant mixed use precinct consisting of six residential buildings organised around a new public plaza and a retail street. It will be a place for people to meet, eat, relax and entertain.
