The New Sydney Northwest Metro Opens
Last month saw the opening of the long-anticipated Sydney Metro – with the first stage of the project - Northwest, opening in May. Stage one has seen the opening of 13 stations, with services running from Tallawong Station, through to Kellyville, Norwest, Castle Hill, Epping, Macquarie Park and University, North Ryde and onto Chatswood.
The Metro Northwest is part of a larger Metro service planned for Sydney, with future services connecting the Northwest line through to Crows Nest, North Sydney, Barangaroo and Martin’s Place in Sydney’s CBD. Recently the Government has also announced further connecting services through to Parramatta, Sydney Olympic Park, the Bays Precinct and onto Marrickville, Campsie and Bankstown in the 2020’s.
With Stage one now open to the public, commuters are seeing the benefits of living along the Metro service line, with services every 4 mins during peak times, along with ample parking, drop off zones and bike storage spaces across the new stations. Making it easier for commuters to arrive at and enter the Metro.
One such project that has seen the benefits of the opening of the new station is Country Garden Australia’s Ryde Garden project. Ryde Garden is a masterplan of 830 one, two and three-bedroom apartments over three buildings with basement car park, situated just 50m from the new North Ryde Metro station. The recently completed, Bates Smart designed project offers convenient living on Sydney’s North Shore, with generous green spaces including, roof-top gardens with BBQs, gymnasium, swimming pool, kids water play and equipment and a central park.
The new North Ryde Metro station is at the footsteps of Ryde Garden’s doors – allowing occupants access to the Northwest line within just 50 meters from their front door. The North Ryde Metro station is one stop to Chatswood and Macquarie Park – yet the final apartments selling in the development are a fraction of the price of comparable apartments in both suburbs.
“Ryde Garden presents potential property investors and even first home buyers a unique opportunity to invest in this growth region of Sydney,” said Blake Schulze, Director, Residential at Colliers International.
“The opening of the Metro last month means that occupants at Ryde Garden will be one-stop from Chatswood and Macquarie Park, and will be able to access further services to Sydney’s CBD, North Sydney’s Victoria Cross Station and Crows Nest in the 2020s. The project has been on the market with Colliers International for only a few weeks and we have seen a huge demand for these apartments, given their competitive price points, with many savvy investors being drawn by the developments proximity to the Metro station, and future potential.”
