Submitted by architecture firm Rothelowman, the plans envision four new buildings on a two-hectare site at 26 Egmont Street, adjacent to the existing Parklands at Sherwood complex.

The proposed development aims to make efficient use of the space by co-locating the four buildings on site whilst still providing green spaces and retail options.

The dwellings themselves offer a mix of unit types, mostly one-bedroom units but also some three-bedroom options.

Specifics of the proposal include realigning internal roadways to improve site access, increasing bicycle parking to 54 spaces, enhancing communal amenities like public gathering areas, and ensuring private outdoor space for townhouse residents.

The buildings are designed to take advantage of nearby public transit whilst also providing 325 on-site car parking spots.

The development application seeks to modify prior approvals for the site by extending into unused stages and tweaking prior building envelopes and dwelling mixes.

According to planners, developers have taken this opportunity to re-evaluate the masterplan and update the development’s design to align with present-day market preferences and standards. The revisions aim to produce housing that caters to current demands and expectations. 

If approved, it would represent a major extension of the Parklands complex, bringing hundreds of new modern housing options to a neighbourhood already seeing rapid growth and evolution.
