Haitchin Group have broken the Hills District apartment record at their Norwest Infinity Park development.
They’ve sold a four-bedroom, sub-penthouse on level 22 in one of the two towers for $3.7 million. It topped the former record, believed to be $3.4 million.
The north-facing apartment spans 199 sqm of internal living space and a further 124 sqm of balconies. It has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three car spaces.
PRD Norwest Director David Inkster said the sale reflected the strong demand for premium, generous-sized apartments as well as the distinct lack of supply for luxury apartments in the area.
“A degree of fear of missing out or FOMO is setting in in the Norwest as local downsizers, looking for lifestyle and sophisticated amenities are eager to secure their next home, as there’s only a small amount of supply coming online in future years,” Inkster says.
A recent market report for July prepared by My Housing Market Chief Economist and property commentator, Dr Andrew Wilson found Norwest was the best performing market in Sydney’s Hills District and one of the best performing markets in the city, seeing a 9.5 per cent uplift in property prices since the start of the year.
“The Sydney housing market has maintained its strong revival through the first half of 2023 with the north west reporting the strongest regional price growth over the past year,” Wilson said.
“With Sydney home values still just below the peak results recorded over March last year, buyers will continue to take advantage of the value opportunities that remain in the local market – particularly in high demand areas to the north west of the city.”
Overlooking the Castle Hill Country Club, Infinity Park will comprise 287 apartments across three residential buildings. The project consists of a 25-storey tower, Marque, along with two five-storey low rise buildings, marketed as Alpha and Omega, comprising the most premium two and three bedroom apartments in the precinct.
A seven-storey commercial tower, Infinity Commercial, is situated opposite the residential buildings and comprises 95 strata commercial suites including a 193 sqm rooftop fine-dining restaurant by acclaimed hatted chef, Joshua Mason.
“Infinity Park is certainly one of the most premium mixed-use communities in Norwest. The project has received strong interest already with local downsizers who want to stay in the area,” Mason said.
The buildings are centred around a resort-inspired, tropical lagoon-style swimming pool, the largest in Norwest.
Haitchin Group’s General Manager, Robert Tasevski, said one of Infinity Park’s greatest selling points is the enviable lifestyle it will offer, positioned within walking distance to the picturesque Castle Hill Country Club, with meticulously designed, generously-sized apartments and balconies, designed with downsizers in mind and those looking for more space than the average apartment in Sydney.
“The larger style two and three bedroom apartments will cater to local downsizers looking for a stunning new home, close to all amenities including the Castle Hill Country Club as well as the Norwest Metro station, Norwest Shopping Centre and local schools,” Tasevski said.
The residential component of Infinity Park is due for completion in mid-2025, with the commercial building completing earlier in April 2024.
