Luxury living planned for Panthers site

21.12.17

A new urban lifestyle village is coming to Penrith with ESQ 1818, the residential quarter of the Penrith Panthers’ Entertainment Precinct, receiving approval for stage one of its $500 million development.

The development from Sydney developer CABE will feature 850 apartments plus retail, lake frontage, communal spaces and landscaped boulevards, nature walks and running tracks.

CABE CEO Andrew James said it will be the first of its kind for western Sydney.

“ESQ 1818 will become the residential quarter of the Penrith Panthers’ Entertainment Precinct,” he said.

“East Side Quarter references the site location East of the Nepean River and East Side of the Lakefront and Penrith Panthers – creating an important lifestyle activation and connection into the town centre and Riverwalk Link.

“The project will create a vibrant urban village on the door steps of the Penrith Panthers’ Entertainment hub.”

Mr James said the new development would be of international standard.

“ESQ 1818 will offer world class amenities, from the retail and lake frontage to the communal spaces, landscaped boulevards, nature walks and running tracks,” he said.

Maintaining space between the buildings means views of the lake and Blue Mountains was essential for the development, with 50 per cent of the site allocated to landscaping, creating a green oasis for residents and the broader public.

“The Blue Mountains is a Sydney icon,” Mr James said.

“The natural attraction and fantastic backdrop is a direct visual connection to nature. It is our vision to create a village atmosphere bounded by parkland and landscaped boulevards.

“Our landscape designers, Oculus, known for their work in both Barangaroo and the Central Park Development in Sydney, have been commissioned to realise this vision.”

With one, two and three bedroom apartments on offer, the site will provide not only additional homes for the growing region, but a new vibrant and luxurious lifestyle currently missing from Penrith.

“We believe space is the ultimate luxury,” Mr James said.

“In addition to the amenities this project will deliver in the heart of Penrith’s entertainment precinct, we also have plans for a future eat street as well as resort-style living with wellness retreat, private club, dining and exclusive entertaining areas.”

ESQ Stage One is scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2018.

    Sky High Revolution- East Side Quarter, Retreat Drive Penrith

    EAST SIDE QUARTER Retreat Drive, Penrith MARISSA GEORGOPOULOS WESTERN Sydney hub Penrith is due for its biggest transformation yet – a $500 million residential development that will push the suburb to new heights. The monumental new estate known as East Side Quarter will include 11 buildings ranging from four to 15 storeys and offer panoramic Blue Mountains views, a resort-style pool deck, play areas for kids and a retail laneway. The estate will also have a lakefront dining precinct, wellness retreat and regional play spaces. The first luxury apartments will hit the market next month. Telegraph the project was the culmination of long-time planning. “We’re very excited to finally put it out to the public,” Mr James said. “All up, it is 850 apartments, 3500sqm of retail, and it will be what we’re calling the first urban village of Western Sydney as it spans more than 6.5ha. Over half the site is landscape.” Neighbouring the site is the Penrith Panthers Leagues Club. Mr James said the proposal was welcomed by the Panthers board. Club members have been offered an early chance to buy into the 152 units being made available in the project’s first release in July. “We have gone out to them over the past week and in that time we have had over 50 per cent of the apartments pre-sold. This shows the local market has been crying out for this level of development. “There has been a healthy mix of buyers but downsizers have certainly shown strong interest.” Each apartment will have at least one car space. The one-bedders start from $400,000. Two-bedroom units are upwards of $550,000. The threebedders are priced from $700,000. Architects Turner will incorporate stone benchtops, porcelain floor tiles and mirrored splashbacks in kitchens and bathrooms. Construction of the first two buildings will start this year, with doors set to open to residents in 2020.
