1A Morton Street, Parramatta
Located on the picturesque riverfront of Parramatta, River Vistas captures scenic riverside and parkland views, sought-after cityscapes and an abundance of northern light.
JQZ purchased the site for a 500-unit residential development proposed for the old Parramatta City Council depot, and the client’s priority was to complete construction as quickly as possible.
The site is adjacent to the Parramatta River and therefore subject to flooding levels of up to four metres across the site. Northrop’s initial focus was to aid in the planning of the buildings so that residences were above the flood level. We liaised closely with Council’s officers to facilitate an ‘in principle’ agreement that would enable us to commence early works onsite.
A staged construction certificate for the early works enabled the builder to deliver the agreed program. Northrop was able to draw on its relationships within Council to circumvent the usual course of proceedings for such approvals.
