An Australian property developer has been honoured for his “brilliant” effort to turn the once-desolate and dilapidated houses of the sagebrush wilderness into luxury luxury apartments.
The Sage House Development Group said the project will see the property developed into apartments, retail and a hotel.
The project has been in the works for more than a decade, but it will take almost three years to build the apartments and retail complex.
It is understood the property will include 1,000-square-metre buildings with “unique and elegant design” which will be able to accommodate up to 250 people.
The development is one of the largest developments in NSW.
Mr Smith said the property would be a great fit for the surrounding community.
“It will be a wonderful opportunity to create an amenity for the community, for the residents and the businesses that will be within the community,” he said.
“The residents will be very happy to be living in an apartment, a great opportunity to make the community a hub and a hub of tourism for the city of Sydney.”
Mr Smith and his partners also have the backing of a local business association.
“This will be an opportunity for people in this community to become more involved in the local business sector, particularly with a large retail and hotel complex,” Mr Smith said.’
I don’t think it’s fair’The project will cost $8.2 million, including $1.2 billion in government funding.
“There’s no doubt that it’s a really exciting project, but we don’t see it as a subsidy to the local community, we see it very much as a project that will support the local economy and the economy of this community,” Mr Mitchell said.
Mr Mitchell said the Sage House development would help to revitalise the property, which has been the focus of a long-running environmental and planning battle.
“We’re looking at the development as being a part of a broader scheme to regenerate the sage brush that is a critical part of our heritage and this is really the first time that the project has got the support of the community and it’s the first thing that the community has been involved in,” he told ABC News.
“I think it shows that people are really passionate about this.”
