The New Parramatta Road is a NSW state government project to regenerate the Parramatta Road Corridor, which is defined as the land adjoining and at least one block back from the 22-kilometre Parramatta Road, as well as eight identified growth precincts.

It proposes that the majority of the residential development arising from the project will be concentrated in Auburn, Homebush, Burwood and Five Dock and facilitated by land use zoning changes.

The NSW Minister for Planning, Rob Stokes, said the new Parramatta Road project was part of the government’s plan to link Sydney from east to west and eradicate the congestion along the busy road. It comes as the government and local councils identify western Sydney as the growth sector.

Parramatta’s office vacancy is one of the lowest in the state at about 5.9 per cent.

By bundling up residential lots, the owners can get more economies of scale.

Deals already completed along Parramatta Road have raised a total of $17.25 million for the parties involved.

Recent acquisitions include the purchase of collection of individual properties in Burwood for a total of $9.65 million. This comprised 2, 4, 8 and 10 Hornsey Street, 2-4 Stanley Street and 7-13 Conder Street.

Another significant sale involved 9-13 Gloucester Avenue, Burwood, which sold for $7.6 million.

According to CBRE, which completed the sales, developers have been buying up houses in one line with a view to capitalising on future rezoning opportunities that will arise from the project.

CBRE’s manager, capital markets, Nick Tuxworth said developers were moving ahead of the project’s implementation to secure a foothold in the market.

“Off market deals are occurring, with developers buying up houses in a line or offering options to home owners to purchase their properties subject to rezonings occurring as part of the New Parramatta Road urban renewal,” Mr Tuxworth said.

“The majority of the transactions that have occurred in the past 12 months have involved local developers. However, with the Australian currency underperforming we are likely to see more foreign capital, particularly from China, looking at these types of development opportunities.”

Mr Tuxworth said that developers were showing a particular interest in sites without development applications, believing they could acquire these more cost effectively and add value.

“Whilst the market’s perception may be that development site acquisitions are slowing down, from the conversations that we have been having with developers, there is still significant activity,” Mr Tuxworth said.

However CBRE’s Victor Sheu said the firm’s review included a note of caution for property owners and highlighted that further clarity on the government’s New Parramatta Road strategy was required to ensure that vendors and purchasers could compose deals that resulted in win-win outcomes.

“Home owners likely to benefit from the New Parramatta Road uplift should be prepared in terms of understanding the procedure of selling amalgamated sites,” Mr Sheu​ said.

“They also need to recognise that, until there are any public exhibitions or official announcements, it is extremely difficult to provide definitive advice on site values because of the potential pricing fluctuations and demand changes that could occur in the market for residential developments.”

Urban Growth NSW is presently considering feedback and submissions received following public consultation on the draft Parramatta Road Urban Transformation Strategy, which was held between October and December last year.
