Greenland Australia and its joint venture partner, GH Australia, have appointed Richard Crookes Constructions as their construction partner for Stage 1 of Park Sydney in Erskineville, in Sydney’s inner-west.
The 6.9-hectare masterplanned residential community will be one of the largest urban renewal projects in Sydney and will feature nine development blocks ranging from two to eight storeys.
The masterplan Development Application (DA), which was approved on 3 March 2017, is expected to result in the construction of 1,400 apartments over five stages.
Park Sydney will also feature a 7,446m² public park and major retail amenity, including a full-range supermarket, and specialty shops.
The City of Sydney approved the construction DA for Stage 1 in February 2018, which includes 330 apartments across two buildings, a fresh food precinct, eat street, medical centre and a childcare centre.
Greenland Australia managing director Sherwood Luo said: “It’s great to see projects like this coming to life – together with GH Australia, we’ve been planning Park Sydney since 2016 so it’s particularly exciting to see major projects of this scale starting to take shape and watching how they transform the local area.
“We are converting this large former industrial precinct into an engaging and inclusive residential community that will ultimately become home to some 3,000 residents.
“Large industrial sheds are making way for the beautiful WMK Architecture-designed residences, featuring interiors by Alexander & Co, with beautiful grounds and landscapes designed by Tract set to replace the concrete and bitumen that’s defined the area for so long.”
Luo said that the selection of Richard Crookes Constructions will be vital in helping Greenland Australia deliver Park Sydney‘s first stage.
Richard Crookes Constructions managing director Jamie Crookes said: “Park Sydney will be a major addition to our portfolio, and we’re really pleased to be delivering Stage 1 of this major urban renewal project.
“We’ve enjoyed the journey of working with Greenland Australia in the past and pride ourselves on repeat work from our clients.
“We look forward to building on our long and productive working relationship with Greenland Australia.”
