Where: Caddens Road, Caddens
Area: Caddens is a new residential community masterplanned by UrbanGrowth NSW. The newly created suburb is located approximately five kilometres south-east of Penrith City Centre and is situated between the suburbs of Kingswood, Claremont Meadows, and the rural area of Orchard Hills. The Penrith Local Environmental Plan (Caddens) was gazetted on 25 September 2009.
UrbanGrowth NSW owns approximately 55 hectares of the total 120 hectares release area.
What’s proposed: The release area will ultimately include approximately 1,250 dwellings, 10,000m² of retail and commercial floor space, conservation, drainage and recreation spaces.
Our role: We plan to deliver approximately a quarter of the completed residential lots within the release area, along with landscaped open space. However, one of the key elements of our involvement in this project is delivering the essential infrastructure that will assist other developers to commence work and encourage further housing supply in this area. This includes a sewer carrier main, a new collector road and drainage facilities.
Where it’s up to: Development of stages 1 – 6 of the Caddens project is nearing completion. The project is enjoying strong demand in the market, with over 200 lots in stages 1 – 4 sold and completed. Stages 5 (38 lots) and 6 (41 lots) are currently under construction, with Stage 5 already released and sold, and Stage 6 to be released in coming months. UrbanGrowth NSW has also secured a rezoning to deliver an additional 45 lots and new hilltop park on a site known locally as ‘The Knoll’. Construction will commence on this site in the near future.
Features: Caddens will feature a high quality public domain and the restoration of a riparian corridor. The development will also provide a range of lot sizes and housing choice, making it an important contributor to affordable housing.
