Ellipse Property’s $850m Carrington Place Approved

Ellipse Property’s $850m Carrington Place Approved

A masterplanned Castle Hill community has received approval and is being touted as the largest and greenest development in the suburb west of Sydney. 

The Carrington Place development is a 3.2ha site at 36 Carrington Road and comprises 771 apartments across five towers of up to 12 storeys. 

The Tony Owen Partners and Stanisic Architects-designed towers will be nestled alongside the Cattai Creek on the western border of the development. 

Carrington Place project director Joseph Chiha said the project would be a multi-staged urban village with a strong connection to nature and a 20,000sq m landscaped recreation space, which made it one of the greenest developments in Castle Hill.

“The project seamlessly blends with the surrounding nature and aims to become one of Sydney’s most sustainable urban communities,” Chiha said.

Ellipse Property founder Sam El Rihani said the approval and start of Carrington Place would be a significant milestone for the company.

“We believe in creating more than just buildings; we strive to develop thriving communities,” El Rihani said.

“With Carrington Place, our goal is to foster a sense of belonging and connection among residents. We envision a place where neighbours become friends, where families create lasting memories, and where the community flourishes together.”

The first stage of the development, Atrium, will comprise 151 apartments across an eight-storey tower with rooftop recreation facilities. 

Each tower within the development will achieve a minimum 6-star NATHERS rating.

Construction is planned to begin in Q3-2023 with the first stage due for completion in Q3 2025. The entire five-stage precinct is due for completion in 2032.

It follows a slew of approvals for the western Sydney suburb in the past month. 

Msquared Capital recently won approval for its five-tower development planned for Castle Hill after its Land and Environment Court appeal was upheld. 

It now has the green light for stages one and two of the Cadman Crescent development—comprising 242 apartments across five buildings around a central courtyard.

Developer Kassis’s plans to swap out one and three-bedroom apartments for four-bedroom units in the dual-tower project Grand Reve were also approved. 

While building A in the project planned for 6-12 and 6-20 Garthowen Crescent, Castle Hill, was unchanged, the amendments for building B approved by The Hills Shire Council cut the total number of apartments to 185 from 192 in the Giles Tribe Architects-designed development.
