Ellipse Property’s master planned community, Carrington Place, receives DA approval in the heart of Castle Hill, promising a nature-immersed haven on the serene banks of Cattai Creek.
Sydney, 7 June 2023 – Ellipse Property Group, a local property developer, has obtained the Hills Shire Council’s green light for its remarkable $850 million master planned community, Carrington Place. Nestled at 36 Carrington Road in Castle Hill, just a 36-minute drive northwest of Sydney CBD and 16 minutes from Parramatta, this development aims to captivate residents with its harmonious blend of urban living and natural surroundings.
Ellipse Property acquired the expansive 3.2-hectare site, which marks the largest residential project in the pipeline for Castle Hill, back in April 2016. Carrington Place will be comprised of five elegant buildings, ranging from eight to 12 stories, housing a total of 771 thoughtfully designed apartments. Offering a diverse range of one, two, and three-bedroom layouts, as well as premium two and three-bedroom residences that emulate the feeling of spacious homes, this development redefines luxury and comfort in Castle Hill.
Collaboratively crafted by renowned architectural firms Tony Owen Partners and Stanisic Architects, the buildings seamlessly integrate with the surrounding natural landscapes, gracefully embracing the tranquil curves of the adjacent Cattai Creek. This exceptional design synergy captures the essence of nature, creating a truly immersive living experience for residents.
Carrington Place Project Director Joseph Chiha emphasized that Carrington Place is envisioned as a multi-staged urban village with a strong connection to nature, prioritizing lifestyle, sustainability, and community.
“The project seamlessly blends with the surrounding nature and aims to become one of Sydney’s most sustainable urban communities.” Mr. Chiha stated
Ellipse Property Founder Sam El Rihani acknowledged that Carrington Place represents a significant milestone for the company, as evidenced by the anticipation surrounding its highly anticipated launch.
Highlighting the community-centric aspects of the Carrington Place project, Mr Rihani expressed, “At Ellipse Property, we believe in creating more than just buildings; we strive to develop thriving communities. With Carrington Place, our goal is to foster a sense of belonging and connection among residents. We envision a place where neighbours become friends, where families create lasting memories, and where the community flourishes together.”
Setting a new standard in sustainability, Carrington Place will boast over 20,000 square meters of outdoor recreational space and verdant gardens, meticulously envisioned by the esteemed landscape architect, Site Image Landscape Architects. This commitment to greenery positions Carrington Place as one of the most environmentally conscious master planned communities in the Hills district. Each tower within the development will achieve a minimum average 6-star NATHERS rating according to the (Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme).
A standout feature of the project is the one-kilometre boardwalk stretching along the Cattai Creek, seamlessly connecting to Fred Caterson Reserve—a sprawling 58-hectare local reserve. The reserve offers an array of amenities, including picnic areas, children’s playgrounds, and multiple sports facilities, enriching the community’s outdoor experience.
In line with their dedication to community well-being, Ellipse Property has pledged to allocate over 6,500 square meters of the Cattai Creek area for public use within the masterplan. Additionally, the developer has worked closely with the Council to ensure the meticulous revegetation management and landscaping of the Cattai Creek Masterplan, affectionately known as ‘The Green Belt’ by locals. This area serves as a habitat for various wildlife, flora, and fauna, notably including the Powerful Owl, Australia’s largest owl species.
With the DA approval secured, Carrington Place stands as a promising testament to Ellipse Property Group’s commitment to crafting a harmonious and sustainable community that merges contemporary living with the tranquillity of nature.
The first stage in the development, Atrium, will comprise 151 apartments within one mid-rise eight storey building and will offer a range of amenities. Residents of Atrium will enjoy the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape from rooftop recreational spaces. Serving as the gateway to the Carrington Place precinct, Atrium embodies the community’s vision for a sustainable and healthy lifestyle.
Carrington Place, strategically situated opposite The Hills Showground Metro Station, offers future residents unparalleled connectivity to key destinations across Sydney. With seamless access to the CBD, Chatswood, North Sydney, Macquarie Park, and Norwest Business Park, this development ensures optimal convenience. Residents will enjoy the highest level of connectivity on Australia’s first driverless railway, with trains operating every four minutes during peak hours in both directions.
Construction is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2023, with the completion of Stage 1, Atrium, targeted for the third quarter of 2025. The entire five-stage precinct is expected to reach completion by 2032, promising a comprehensive and well-planned community.
