Earlier this year, a Chinese developer paid $10 million for a 5.59 hectare property at 120 Ingleburn Rd, Leppington. It’s all part of the rapid development planned for Leppington proposed by the State government as part of the South West Growth corridor.
The DA for the site was submitted to Camden Council on Monday. The usual planning and environmental investigation documents that accompany these types of applications have yet to be added. I’ll let everyone know when they come in.
However, the description below indicates a $197.5m development just a few hundred metres up the road from this one.
The description reads (I’ve broken it into dot points for ease of reading):
- New Multi Unit Housing, Demolition and Torrens Subdivision 672 units Demolition of existing dwelling and sheds; clearing of limited vegetation outside zone RE1;
- Torrens title subdivision of the entire lot into three main development 'blocks';
- Construction of the public road corridors; construction of a mixed-use development consisting of basement and ground-level parking;
- Ground floor commercial/retail uses, either top-shop housing or residential flat buildings consistent with Precinct Plan;
- The residential component will consist of 672 units containing a mix of unit sizes; associated/ancillary site works including earthworks, drainage and landscaping; public open space and riparian corridor rehabilitation.
It certainly looks as if Leppington will go from being a rural area to medium to high density housing very quickly indeed.
