The Orchards by Sekisui House News / Project Milestone / 09.05.2017

Inspired by nature and the rich history of the Hills district, Global Developer Sekisui House has embarked on The Orchards - a community comprising 1,300 new homes balancing life through modern living and nature. Set on the site of one of Sydney’s first commercial citrus orchards the landscape by McGregor Coxall includes a publicly accessible 1.4 hectare Linear Park to protect remnant Cumberland Plain Woodland and heritage listed Bunya Pines. The site wide WSUD initiative captures and treats site stormwater through a series of terraced bioretention systems, protecting the local creek and remnant ecologies from pollutants generated by the development. The Masterplan and Phase 01 Development Application for ‘The Orchards’ has been submitted and is currently being assessed by the Hills Shire Council.
