Goodman is venturing into the build-to-rent market with an ambitious project in western Sydney, transforming its existing Waterloo Business Park in Macquarie Park into a modern residential complex featuring six apartment blocks.
Macquarie Park, NSW
Architecture Interior Design
The proposed development encompasses a 1.6-hectare site on Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park, and is a state-significant development. A central design feature is a “green spine,” facilitating pedestrian connections throughout the development. The landscape architect is a frequent DKO collaborator, OCULUS, who are also working closely with the Connecting to Country consultant Bernadette Hardy.
As part of the project, a new road connecting Lane Cove and Dirrabari roads to the north of the site. This road enhancement aims to improve accessibility and connectivity in the area. A strategic master plan for the Waterloo Road corridor was initiated by Ryde City Council, recognising the transformation of the region from a sprawling business park to a burgeoning central business district. With job growth projected to reach 79,000 by 2036 and student enrolment expected to increase to 55,000 by 2030, Macquarie Park is a pivotal hub for employment and education.
