Dyldam Media Release: 2 March 2017
Following the resounding success of Dyldam’s Carlingford master precinct, the industry leader is now launching THE OPERA MERRYLANDS, a game-changing new precinct in one of Cumberland LGA’s current hot spots.
“THE OPERA precinct is clearly the best development location in Merrylands” stated Sam Fayad, Managing Director of Dyldam. “Walkability was a big factor in our Live, Work, Play philosophy. It is less than 150 metres from the train station and directly adjacent to Stockland Mall.
“Connectivity is important too as Sydney strives for the 30 minute city. We are confident that THE OPERA MERRYLANDS will achieve the 10 minute city. The precinct is just 7 minutes or 2 train stops from Parramatta – Sydney’s true central CBD. Westmead Medical Precinct – which is transforming into an international medical hub – is also within easy reach”
“Council recognise the strategic importance of Merrylands’ proximity to Parramatta. They are creating a new town square. A $300 million redevelopment of the mixed use Shopping Centre is also underway. Merrylands is ideal for buyers wanting to connect with Parramatta at their own lifestyle pace” stated Mr Fayad.
Dyldam commissioned the best design and planning talent in the country to create a lifestyle destination that will put Merrylands on the map. These include industry icon Tony Caro Architecture, who created the design concept; Plus Architecture who were recently selected to collaborate with Zaha Hadid Architects on a Melbourne project, Australia’s leading urban development services consultants JBA and the inspiring Site Image Landscape Architects who have 30 years’ experience in the Australian, Asian and Middle East markets.
The project’s design coherence benefits from a single landowner to create a lifestyle hub that links the natural beauty of Holroyd Gardens to the bustle of the town centre. The precinct will enjoy private spaces for residents including rooftop terraces, along with civic parklands with riparian features and a café, retail feature.
Dyldam are releasing CONCERTO as the first stage of the project – a mixed use development comprised of four buildings including a rooftop swimming pool will be home to 358 apartments and approximately 2,500sqm of commercial space. Concerto will be followed by Pavane, Opus and Aria to complete THE OPERA MERRYLANDS PRECINCT SERIES.
