Esplanade is a hub of activity, with cafes, wine bars and restaurants all within a stone’s throw away. The new Norwest Railway Station will connect you to Sydney CBD with fast, safe and reliable metro trains to run every four minutes in peak time. All of your shopping needs are catered for at Norwest Marketown or at nearby Rouse Hill Town Centre and Castle Towers where significant expansion plans are happening as a response to the area’s strong population growth.

The beautifully presented single-level apartments have been designed to achieve Platinum level certification under Livable Housing Design Guidelines and meet High Physical Support design requirements under the NDIS.

This means the apartments feature customisable kitchens, bathrooms and laundries, and wheelchair accessible private outdoor areas. A two-way communications system enables tenants to contact support workers (in an additional on-site apartment) in the event of an emergency or unplanned support need. The apartments also have structural provision for ceiling hoists and are assistive technology ready.

The average apartment size (internal area) of the Esplanade apartments is 79.7 square metres.
