PRIME 5-ACRE R3 MEDIUM DENSITY RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY
20,239m2 of premium land zoned R3 Medium Density Residential in the heart of the Vineyard Precinct (Stage 1)
Situated in the rapidly expanding North-West Priority Growth Area, only minutes’ from Windsor Road, the proposed Outer Sydney Orbital and just a short commute to the future Sydney Metro. This superior 5-acre, R3 Medium Density residential development opportunity provides astute developers with a rare offering to capitalise on 20,239m2 of rezoned land which is predominately cleared and ready for a mix of high-quality R3 Medium Density housing types.
Location, Density and Subdivision Potential
Adjacent to the fashionable Box Hill Precinct and only a 6-minute drive from Rouse Hill Town Centre, Vineyard – Stage 1 will provide newly rezoned development land for an additional 2,400 homes to accommodate approximately 7,400 residents. This exceptional site is one of only a few within the precinct zoned entirely for R3 Medium Density development, and neighbours the proposed primary school and future village centre, shops and cafés.
In addition to the attractive location, the residential density yield for the site suggests 20-30 dwellings/hectare would be permissible. Up to 60 high-quality dwellings could be constructed with a maximum building height of 12 metres. In contrast, residential density yields for R2 Low Density sites within the precinct offer 15-18 dwellings/hectare with a maximum building height not exceeding 9 metres.
Site Attributes and Characteristics
The site itself is slightly undulating with a westerly aspect containing a fine attached dual-occupancy single-story residence set towards the rear of the site, allowing for possible retention during a staged residential development project. All services including connection to the Sydney Water Network, Telstra, NBN and single phase electricity is available at the property. The site dimensions provide for approximately 154 metres of frontage to Harkness Road with a depth of approximately 118 metres (left side) and 152 metres (right side) for a combined net development area of 20,239m2 or 5 acres.
The development upside for this site is remarkable and all interested parties are encouraged to act fast to secure this rare development offering which is already proving highly sought-after within the Vineyard Precinct. Possibilities for future residential use are detailed within State Environment Planning Policy (Sydney Region Growth Centres) Appendix 13 – Hawkesbury Growth Centres Precinct Plan and Development Control Plan (2018).
