Plans for nine towers ranging from eight to 26 store\ys tall will go on public exhibition in The Hills. The high -rise residential and commercial towers, known as The Greens in Norwest Business Park, are the vision of developers Mulpha Norwest and will comprise 1040 homes at the precinct’s completion. The proposal recently received the green light from NSW Planning Gateway and approval for a voluntary planning agreement from the council.
A date for plans to go on exhibition is yet to be set. Mulpha Norwest general manager Tim Spencer said the developer would commit almost $19 million towards the upgrade of existing infrastructure and the building of infrastructure under the council’s direction.“Mulpha’s voluntary planning agreement VPA has highlighted contributions to an extensive list of initiatives including smart poles to deliver lighting and security around Norwest Lake, Norwest Blvd inter-section upgrades, passive and active sporting fields and parks as well as pedestrian and cycleway path upgrades,” he said.
“Mulpha’s design intent prioritised the creation of landscaped and public domain space to drive community interaction and wellness in design philosophies. “The community has told us how important quality public spaces are and we are thrilled to be delivering exactly that.”
