If approved, the $15 million residential development would include four residential towers, featuring 361 apartments in total, ranging in heights between seven and 11 storeys at 19-31 Ashford Ave and 15 27 Partridge Ave, Castle Hill.

A public walkway and pool are also proposed as part of the development.A total of 361 apartments are included in the proposal.

“The four buildings are separated by a central landscaped podium which provides common open space areas for the residents and includes a swimming pool, and extensive landscaping,” the spokesman said.

“A further two common open space areas are provided on the rooftops of (two) buildings.”

The development application argues the proposal is consistent with the future character of the Showground Station precinct, and will include the widening of Ashford Ave to accommodate increases in traffic flow.

A series of private rooftop spaces are also proposed.

“The proposal is a high quality transit orientated development that will provide housing choice in a location that enjoys exceptional access to the forthcoming Showground Train Station and employment opportunities within the Showground Precinct and wider Sydney area,” the proposal said.
