The new proposed scheme from Cox Architecture for the $1.3 billion residential and commercial development at Rouse Hill has been revealed.
Situated within 600 metres of the new Sydney Metro Rouse Hill Station, the Northern Precinct of the Rouse Hill development will feature integrated residential, commercial, retail and community spaces.
Prepared with Civitas and landscape architect Oculus for developer GPT Group, the new masterplan from Cox has been revised following the refusal of an earlier application.
Revealing eight ‘super lots’ with 2,100 residential dwellings spread across them, the proposal envisions a density of 230 dwellings per hectare. Town Park, a new civic place, will form the centre of the precinct and provide public space.
Three neighbourhoods will surround the precinct offering a variation in both style and block configuration. Along the southern edge, the Community Hub neighbourhood will include mostly retail commercial and community spaces in the podiums, with residential buildings above.
Close to the metro station, the Urban Village neighbourhood on the western edge will be designed to be compact and easily walkable, combining commercial and residential ground-floor activation. On the northern edge, the Garden Mews neighbourhood will be entirely residential with tiered building heights to show off rooftop gardens and planting.
