Property developer Mulpha Australia has won development approval for the first timber commercial building as part of its $3 billion Norwest masterplan in Sydney’s west. 

The $53 million development, known as The Bond, was initially rejected by Sydney Central Planning late last year.

The developer lodged an appeal against the decision to reject the 7-storey building, which will now be located on the corners of Elizabeth Macarthur Drive and Norbrik Drive, adjacent to the heritage-listed Bella Vista Farm.

The Fitzpatrick & Partners-designed timber building will comprise ground floor retail, a co- working lobby space, along with six floors of commercial office space and a 110 capacity childcare facility.

The  Norwest City scheme is intended to realise a smart cities concept. Mulpha Developments executive general manager Tim Spencer says Norwest is home to entrepreneurial start-ups and listed companies, including Woolworths Group, ResMed, Subaru, Westpac, Capital Finance and Norwest Private Hospital.

“As Sydney’s population and economic centre moves west, our vision is to create a highly desirable work and lifestyle destination.”
