Exclusive development agents, Urban Greenfield, are proud to offer this outstanding development opportunity located at 28 Harkness Road, Oakville; the newest precinct in the rapidly expanding North-West Priority Growth Area.

Situated two minutes from Windsor Road and providing two road frontages to Harkness and Boundary Roads, this remarkable 16.2 acre site is zoned predominately R2 Low Density Residential with direct access to the future water management basin and adjoining park. In addition, the site provides savvy developers with an opportunity to capitalise on 65,600mof land in close proximity to the proposed Outer Sydney Orbital and just a 7-minute commute to the Sydney Metro (due to open in May 2019.)

Location, Density and Subdivision Potential

Adjacent to the Box Hill Precinct and The Hills of Carmel; Vineyard - Stage 1 will provide newly rezoned development land for an additional 2,400 homes to accommodate approximately 7,400 residents. This exceptional site is in close proximity to the proposed primary school and sporting fields and within walking distance of the future village centre, shops and cafés. Complementing the attractive location, the site comprises the following permissible land uses:

  • 41,959m2 of land zoned R2 - Low Density Residential,
  • 6,646m2 of land zoned RE1 - Public Recreation (future park); and
  • 16,995m2 of land zoned SP2 - Infrastructure (water management basin).

The residential component of the land is divided into three development sectors as per the Vineyard Precinct Indicative Layout Plan. Preliminary research suggests a concept plan of approximately 78-81 residential lots could be realised with an average lot size of 395m2 and 381m2 respectively (based on density cap guidelines not exceeding 18 dwellings/hectare). The maximum building height for future development is 9 metres.
