The NSW Government has selected Malaysian-owned Mulpha to develop a 'civic gateway' on the site adjacent to Norwest Metro Station in Sydney's Hills District, where the company is also developing the residential project Norwest Quarter and has just completed construction of commercial building The Bond.

Mulpha was the successful tenderer for the site at 25-31 Brookhollow Avenue with its vision for three multi-level towers sitting atop two biophilia-designed mixed-use podiums, weaving in business, education and retail uses.

The podium and a public plaza will be enlivened by community spaces and retail, delivering dining and retail shopping convenience.

Mulpha's head of developments Tim Spencer says the project will be a centrepiece for delivering the Norwest Smart City vision.

"Mulpha is thrilled to have been chosen to activate this landmark development site which will be the civic gateway to and from Norwest, and an integral component of Mulpha’s broader planning vision for Norwest," Spencer says.

"Importantly, it will be a transit-oriented commercial development that aims to increase job supply in Sydney’s northwest and set the benchmark for the next phase of Norwest’s vibrant business centre.

"We want to create an environment that engages people and fosters the connectivity and creative energy that will underpin Norwest as a lifestyle destination and dynamic business centre in the global knowledge economy."

In developing the site, Mulpha will work closely with Landcom, Sydney Metro, Hills Shire Council and the State Government, to ensure planning requirements are met and the development delivers on its full potential.

The news comes as construction is currently underway for the developer's zero-carbon 9-tower residential development Norwest Quarter in the Hills, backed by an $80 million green loan from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) to cut energy costs by as much as 50 percent; a loan that is being matched by an $80 million green loan from the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ASX: ANZ).

Mulpha has also recently completed construction of ‘The Bond’ - a 12,000 sqm commercial building in Norwest.  This landmark timber and glass building has a focus on health and medical tenancies to support Norwest Private Hospital and add vital health infrastructure to The Hills.

Prior to completion of The Bond, Mulpha sold 100 percent of the 64 strata suites, ranging from 50sqm – 840sqm, to a mix of owner-occupiers and investors, reflecting a testament to the strength of the emerging suburban office market, post-COVID.

The company has also lodged a planning proposal for the adjacent Norwest Marketown Shopping Centre which, if successful, will cement Mulpha’s long term vision for Norwest Business Park and drive the next phase of the town centre.

Norwest is already one of Australia’s largest master-planned business parks with 800 organisations employing more than 30,000 people.
