A premium residential opportunity
The planned development, which includes several basement levels, a commercial ground floor, three separate residential towers and roof levels, will total a ground floor area of 41,394 square feet. The site will also sit only 200 metres from the Epping Railway station, offering residents and customers easy access to the main northern line, connecting with the Newcastle, Central Coast and the Sydney CBD. This location, will provide a premium residential opportunity to customers and further support the high-density growth of Sydney as the population expands.
Architectus, Arcadia Landscape Architecture, GM Urban Design & Architecture (GMU), Cbus Property Pty Ltd, Linker Surveying and Urbis are among the design and development teams who have shaped the proposal, stating: “This development will further create a presence in Epping acting as a key node to support high density growth in a well serviced area.
“The proposal seeks to expand the public realm and through-site linkages by providing a pedestrianised plaza connecting Langston Place with the Library and Park. This new plaza provides an important extension to the retail offer whilst providing heart to the scheme with high quality public domain for the residents and wider community… There is a balanced provision of unit sizes, which is a reflection of the site’s appeal to young professionals, couples, families as well as retirees.”
Take a tour inside the development
The development will consist of three separate residential towers of varying sizes and facilities, constructed over a commercial ground floor. Tower one, the smallest of the three towers, is planned to stand 62.4 metres high and include 18 residential levels, a parapet roof level and a plant room located on level 16. Tower two will consist of 23 residential levels standing at 77.3 metres, a plant room on level 23, and another parapet roof. Tower three, the tallest tower of the Epping complex, will stand at 92.9 metres, hold 28 residential levels with the plant floor located at level 23 and a high-rise parapet roof looking over the city.
A local hub
Thanks to the size of the development in comparison to the local suburb, the Langston Place high-rise offers a strong contrast to surrounding areas and will serve as a hub to the local community. All towers, although varying in size, will have a panoramic view of the suburb. The site, offering a pedestrianised plaza with access to the local park, will also have a separate library, community walkway and architectural installments. Arterra interactive published a 3D rendered animation of the project, providing a visual representation for the tender process.
Demolition of the existing commercial facility and parking structure will soon be underway as the site is prepared for major excavations to construct basement levels and groundworks for the ultra-modern development.
