As the CEO of a development company, the successful completion of any project always indicates a significant milestone.

But as the head of the Australian arm of a company that has 1,500 projects currently under construction in 300 cities across the globe, and is one of the world’s largest property developers, the delivery of your first local project is indeed a defining moment.

We’re extremely proud that we’ve reached this point with the completion of our first Australian project, Ryde Garden, in Sydney’s North Ryde.

We now have a project that showcases our international expertise right here, and our strong presence in the Australian market is now evident for all to see.

Construction commenced in May 2016 and, at its peak, 550 workers were working onsite each day. Completion of the project in a two-and-a-half-year time period required meticulous planning and focus, and is a significant achievement in itself.

With the project reaching completion in December last year, we’re proud to say that buyers have now started to move into the first of Ryde Garden’s three towers.

Designed by Bates Smart architects, this A$580 million high-rise project includes 830 apartments across three towers, which range in height from 12 to 28 storeys, and border a 4,000-square-metre park.

Around 2,500 residents will call Ryde Garden home, with the project’s one, two or three-bedroom apartments enjoying uninterrupted views of the city and surrounding district.

Resident amenities include a private 30-metre lap pool, gymnasium, childcare facility, street level retail and concierge, as well as dedicated rooftop gardens with BBQs and other landscaped areas.

However, despite Ryde Garden providing lasting proof of our capabilities in delivering masterplanned communities to the Australian market, the most exciting and rewarding aspect of this milestone project is to see the residents moving into their new homes.

This is ultimately what our business is about – providing homes for our local community. But our role goes even further than that. It’s about building engaging communities. That is why we build.

We are all extremely proud of this project and look forward to the development of the Ryde Garden community as all three towers become inhabited.
