Brian Boyd - PAYCE unveils revised plans for South Sydney CBD largest residential apartment development

  • PAYCE Headquarters, Sydney:

Just south of Sydney's CBD at the site of the old Brick pits, PAYCE proposes to build a $350 million apartment development consisting of a vibrant new community of luxury residential apartments with an exclusive retail, shopping precinct.

Brian Boyd – managing director of one of Sydney's leading property development companies - PAYCE Consolidated Limited, has unveiled revised plans for the Kirrawee brick pit project, plans which are even now being ratified through the Department of Planning and Infrastructure.

PAYCE says that subject to the project getting the green light, work could start in late 2014, with the first apartments comprising one, two and three bedrooms coming onto the market from late 2014 to early 2015. It expects to complete the whole project by 2017.

PAYCE's proposal is currently on public exhibition and submissions can be lodged with the Department of Planning and Infrastructure up until 21 March 2014.

From brick pit to vibrant urban community in the heart of Sydney's CBD

The future for Kirrawee's old brick pit site looks promising, with leading Australian property development company, PAYCE Consolidated Limited lodging a set of revised concept plans with the Department of Planning and Infrastructure for determination following an extensive review by PAYCE of the previously approved concept plan.

PAYCE plans to transform the 4.25 hectare Kirrawee Brick Pit site into a mix of residential luxury apartment developments and retail businesses developments in what would be the largest urban renewal project ever undertaken in the Sutherland Shire.

The brick pit site is situated on the southern side of the Princes Highway and lies within the block bounded by the Princes Highway to the north, Flora Street to the south, Oak Road to the west and existing industrial businesses to the east.

The site is conveniently located approximately 150 metres due north of Kirrawee railway station and 25 kilometres from the Sydney central business district.

The New South Village Community at Kirrawee

Once one of many brick pits scattered across Sydney and with a history stretching back over a century, for the past decade the site has lay dormant to much speculation and debate within the community regarding its future use.

PAYCE's managing director, Brian Boyd says his company's project at Kirrawee, is to be known as South Village, and is set to transform the residential and commercial aspects of the area into a vibrant, integrated community that will have long-lasting benefits for the Southerland shire.

Brian Boyd said the site affords a unique opportunity to create a wonderful urban environment, giving residents access to a wide range of new retail and commercial businesses, literally on their doorstep.

"South Village will offer a wonderful quality of life for its residents and the local neighbourhood, with new community facilities incorporated into the design and an expanded and enhanced village shopping precinct," Brian Boyd said.

PAYCE, ever conscious of the residential community, made several modifications to the proposed layout, giving the site a more open design by improving road access, reducing the retail area and reconfiguring the luxury residential apartment component.

PAYCE's vision for an integrated urban community of luxury residential apartments

Brian Boyd says the revised concept plan is a more open design, especially in the marketplace area, with more access points to businesses and a greater area of parkland.

"All the luxury apartments will include eco features in their sustainable designs, such as cross-ventilation, water and power saving devices, natural lighting, LED lighting and solar hot water systems, as well as rainwater harvesting to irrigate communal plants and gardens across the complex."

"The shopping centre, which is has been approved for two supermarkets and a number of exclusive speciality shops, will cover 14,190 square metres.
"Parking for residents and shoppers will be accommodated onsite in underground car parks, as will all loading bays servicing the retail outlets.

PAYCE – luxury apartments and the Sydney housing market

This level of buyer interest seems to be borne out of the response to recent apartment sales in Cronulla and Woolooware Bay, where most residential properties and apartments were scooped up the day they hit the market.

PAYCE's general manager, Dominic Sullivan is confident PAYCE's Kirrawee luxury apartment development will appeal to a wide range of buyers wishing to stake a claim in the investment apartment or luxury residential apartment housing markets.

"It is just a short walk of 150 metres to Kirrawee railway station and minutes' drive away from the Royal National Park.

"When you add the proximity to Cronulla Beach and the waterways of the Georges River and Port Hacking, the location is all the more desirable to home buyers and investors."

PAYCE residential communities

Brian Boyd says PAYCE prides itself on creating exceptional places to live, work and play and has a great success record with its projects reaching back to 1978.

PAYCE can certainly boast an impressive list of luxury residential apartment developments in and around Sydney focusing on best practice designs and delivering integrated lifestyles.

Recent property developments in former industrial areas include luxury apartments and retail opportunities and three luxury residential apartment development projects in Platinum by PAYCE, Apex Living apartments and East Village, all around Victoria Park at Zetland.

PAYCE developed one of Sydney's first comprehensive master plans for Homebush Bay and oversaw the transformation of an industrial wasteland into the new suburb of Wentworth Point, creating of a thriving new urban community of luxury residential apartments.

According to Brian Boyd, much of PAYCE's continuing success with their luxury residential apartment developments, can be attributed to having the best network of quality building and property industry professionals.

"When you have the best building architects, designers, builders, interior designers and landscape architects in the land you have the ability to create very special places to live, work and visit."

PAYCE have gained a strong consistent reputation for delivering projects in time and on budget.

"Our speciality in urban renewal has created a legacy of quality mixed use urban precincts and active communities with improved and modern lifestyles."
