Demand on the rise as Melrose Park off the plan apartments released for sale
The recently released off the plan apartments in Melrose Park’s ‘The Village’ are already proving to be in high demand. In previous releases of Melrose Park apartments at One Melrose, The Residences, Pulse, and Pavilion, 90% of off the plan apartments were sold out during the initial release. This broke all former sales records for PAYCE, and was helped by the apartments far exceeding modern buyer expectations.
The Apartments at One Melrose, which were developed under the first stage of this exciting urban renewal project, are now complete. The community is welcoming couples and young families as they begin moving into their new homes. The Residences – apartments developed under the second stage of the plan – are now undergoing a final internal fit-out ready for occupants to begin moving in shortly. Pulse and Pavilion – the third stage apartments – are now sold, with construction already well underway.
With Melrose Park now entering its fourth stage of development, The Village offers off the plan apartments for sale with a beautiful collection of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments being released for sale. These apartments have been designed with first home buyers and small families in mind and are an ideal investment for young professional home buyers, and young families seeking to invest in property in a growing, welcoming, and friendly community. The latest apartments are located in Melrose Park’s ‘The Village’ area, in the heart of the development’s commercial and retail precinct. As with previous apartment releases, these residential apartments are already selling fast, showing signs of creating new sales records across the local housing market.
PAYCE’s vision is for an urban renewal project that provides all resident apartments with facilities right on the doorstep. All Melrose Park apartments are located a short distance from the Sydney CBD and connected via new infrastructure that features roads, footbridges, cycling trails, rail and ferry services. The strategic master planned design ensures first home buyers, young families, and professionals have easy access to the Central Business District from their apartment, nestled away within a natural, green community.
The Village brings fully integrated ‘Smart City’ living to apartments in Sydney
The release of the new apartments at The Village brings PAYCE one step closer to achieving their vision of creating Sydney’s first fully integrated ‘Smart City’; composed of a community of digitally connected apartments utilising the latest advanced digital communications technologies to maximise sustainability, and boost overall quality of modern apartment living.
The apartment community at Melrose Park features a variety of cutting-edge technologies including environmental monitoring systems, vehicle charging stations, sensor street lighting, and NBN node-to-residence connectivity. Apartment residents will also benefit from a bespoke smartphone app. Melrose Park living really will be tailored for modern lifestyles made available to first home buyers and young families.
The Village apartments include many smart home features, such as automatic blinds and control of at-home energy consumption. Apartment residents will also be able to communicate via voice-activated devices, and use the simple app to book transport, make restaurant reservations, and arrange for a cleaning service. They’ll be able to keep up-to-date with the latest neighbourhood news from across the Melrose Park community.
Following funding from the Federal Government’s grants for Smart Cities and Suburbs program, Melrose Park will also play host to an exciting smart climate project. This is a joint venture between PAYCE, the City of Parramatta, and the University of Technology, Sydney. Under the collaborative project, Melrose Park will use 70 environmental sensors to collect data on local environmental conditions. These will include temperature, humidity, air quality, rainfall, noise, stormwater, and the changing UV index.
“The project also aims to be a fully integrated smart community, with not just smart buildings, but a smart precinct that uses data and digital technology to improve liveability, social connectivity and sustainability”, says PAYCE representative Dominic Sullivan of the revolutionary smart climate project.
The Village is on track to become Sydney’s most connected residential apartment city
As with all other Melrose Park apartments developments, the new releases at ‘The Village’ will benefit from unrivalled connectivity – both physically and digitally – to both the neighbourhood itself and the Sydney CBD. Under PAYCE’s development plan, new roads and footbridges have been built to connect Melrose Park to the Central Business District via walking, cycling, and driving routes. Local public transport options have also been expanded to include regular bus, rail, and ferry services between the two nearby locations. The Sydney CBD can be reached in 30 minutes by car, while Parramatta is just a 10-minute drive away.
Apartment residents will also benefit from free shuttle services with the Melrose Park Rider to the Meadowbank train station, where local public transport services shuttle workers and shoppers to the Sydney CBD in just 26 minutes.
Every new community developed in Sydney is expected to meet the ‘30-minute city’ rule. This is an initiative to ensure that every new neighbourhood is located within 30 minutes of employment opportunity, retail spaces, and recreational activities. However, PAYCE is striving for a ‘5-minute city’ with the development of Melrose Park residential apartment community. “Your social life should be a 5-minute transit, with parks, cafes, child care, gyms, and supermarkets on your doorstep”, says Sullivan. To achieve this, Melrose Park will feature two shopping centres with two supermarkets, in addition to a multitude of boutique and speciality stores.
Residents of The Village will also find themselves connected digitally, not only through the Melrose Park app, but also through the communal workspace that’s in development. This will feature fast internet, printers, and webcam facilities for remote meetings, accommodating the growing ‘work from home’ trend.
Apartments that facilitate a modern, sustainable and health-conscious lifestyle
As part of PAYCE’s vision of a sustainable lifestyle, apartments in ‘The Village’ will be connected to other areas of Melrose Park by sprawling green spaces. With bicycle and walking paths, pet-friendly areas, playgrounds, and a children’s outdoor adventure park connect these luxury apartments. ‘The Village’ features a private communal garden which offers access to a unique wild play area, open lawn, and BBQ facilities available exclusively for Melrose Park Village residents. These facilities are surrounded by aloe vera and lavender, along with a variety of fruit trees such as lemon, fig and native plum, helping residents to actively foster a healthy lifestyle.
In total, the Melrose Park master plan includes 50,000 square metres of parkland and open space, of which 20,000 square metres – around 3 football fields of open land space – will be dedicated to the Grand Central Park.
Melrose Park apartments is designed to make it easier, more convenient – and more enjoyable – to live a healthier lifestyle. As well as the lush green open spaces, apartment residents can also enjoy the community’s dedicated yoga space, meditation room, and gymnasium, with an infrared sauna and additional wellness and fitness options. All apartments are fitted with air and water filters for convenience, safety and health. Residents can quickly connect to local health services for advice and support when needed, through the Melrose Park residents’ smartphone app.
Melrose Park Village Apartment’s Commercial and Retail Precinct opportunities to be released soon.
Following development approval from the City of Parramatta Council, Melrose Park’s ‘The Village’ will feature a well-equipped commercial retail precinct, providing easy-access shopping opportunities for apartment residents. The 1000 square metre retail village is expected to feature a supermarket, liquor store, and pharmacy, offering everyday essentials and luxuries and an opportunity to check out boutique shops.
The new retail precinct will complement Melrose Park Central in the heart of the neighbourhood, which features a major supermarket, restaurants, cafes, lifestyle and speciality shops, as well as a childcare centre. “Our research shows that there is strong demand for retail in the area, with locals currently having to travel to shop”, says Simon Adams, Project Director at Sekisui House. “For residents moving into Melrose Park Village, it will add a higher level of convenience, and for existing residents, a new retail option.”
With the development of the new shopping precinct, as well as the smart facilities and proximity to the Sydney CBD, off the plan apartments at The Village are selling fast.
