Construction has officially commenced on the new $115 million Cascade Gardens, in Pymble. The development project is being created in conjunction with LFD developments and property developers Tian An, with GrowthBuilt to be the appointed contractures. Construction is expected to span 20 months and is set to be completed early in 2020. More than 150 jobs will be created by the major development project.
Cascade Gardens will be located at 2-8 Pymble Avenue, and comprise of 98 apartments over three separate buildings amongst a vivid backdrop of lush landscaped gardens. The development is also conveniently located next to a train station and pedestrian underpass. Cascade Gardens is also set to feature a communal terrace featuring barbeque facilities and a kitchen garden where residents are able to grow fresh vegetables and herbs.
Designed by Become Architecture, Cascade Gardens’ master plan embraces its natural setting nestled by established native trees and distinctive views. Cascade Gardens has been designed with generous outdoor spaces in mind, with aims in providing a network of tiered gardens for residents.
The three buildings have been devised to layer across the development site, to enhance vistas and provide a high level of amenity. Interestingly, a ribbon of screening with perforations designed to emulate the dappled sunlight through the surrounding tree canopies will be used throughout.
Stage One of Cascade Gardens was launched earlier this year, consisting of 27 apartments in one, two and three-bedroom configurations, priced from $725,000 for a 59 square metre one-bedroom apartment, to $2.68 million for a 170 square metre penthouse apartment.
“We are delighted to have commenced construction and be a step closer to delivering this boutique apartment complex to Sydney’s north shore,” said Ben Lin, Managing Director of LFD Developments, the same company which recently developed a well-received luxury townhouse development in Annandale.
Extensive excavation on the site is also required, with GrowthBuilt set to remove close to 24,000 cubic metres of material throughout the process.
“Growthpoint believes it will set a new benchmark for residential development in the North Shore region”, said Colin Rahim, Joint CEO and Director of GrowthBuilt.
