Sydney’s north west could be set to benefit from a new 25-storey hotel and commercial building in a booming business park, to be designed and constructed by NSW Government developer Landcom.
A planning proposal for 25 Brookhollow Ave, Norwest, had met previous objections by The Hills Shire Council on previous occasions due to building heights and a lack of parking spaces at the site — which neighbours the Norwest Metro station.
The plans for the 1.7ha site at the centre of Norwest Business Park were submitted to The Hills Shire Council in December by the NSW Government developer and includes a mix of commercial office space, retail opportunities to attract new employers to Norwest Business Park and the addition of another hotel to The Hills.
Last month, A Landcom spokesman revealed to the Hills Shire Times construction of the 25-storey tower was expected to commence within the next three to five years.
The hotel and commercial precinct at the Norwest Metro station site is set to bring more than 2500 jobs.
“Landcom’s vision is for an integrated, transit-oriented development in the heart of Norwest Business Park, creating a new town centre focused on Norwest Station,”
the spokesman said.
“The proposal supports a mix of uses, including commercial office space, local-serving retail such as cafes or restaurants, other uses to support local businesses such as potential short-term accommodation which could include a hotel or serviced apartments.”
