Bathla Four-Block Blacktown Residential Plans Lodged


Bathla Group has submitted plans for a four-block residential development in Blacktown.

The complex, at 184-194 Guntawong Road in Rouse Hill, will deliver 146 residential apartments. 

Unusually, the majority (111) will be three-bedroom apartments, with 19 two-bedroom and 16 one-bedroom units. Seventeen will be “adaptable dwellings”, according to DKO Architects.

The apartments have been designed to front either the respective street frontage or the communal open space area in the middle of the site.

Plans also consist of 237 parking spaces, a gym and communal roof terraces.

The subject site is part of a superlot that is proposed to be subdivided, and is under assessment. 

Surrounding the site are an “eclectic mix” of single dwellings houses and rural structures, in addition to recently approved and constructed residential developments.

“The locality is therefore expected to undergo transformation” as a result of changed planning rules in the area relating to zoning, building height and minimum density requirement.

▲ Central River City Precinct is expecting and experiencing “unprecedented” levels of investment.

Rouse Hill straddles The Hills Shire and Blacktown Councils and has been the subject of major residential and mixed-use developments in recent years.

The area was annexed as the Central River City Precinct in 2021 and expects “unprecedented public and private investment” as a result of its proximity to the Greater Sydney region and Parramatta.

Bathla has been prolific in its Sydney developments, planning a $215 million Liverpool residential development, another 219 apartments in Western Sydney and a $19 million Box Hill residential complex, all in the past year.
