Thornton Central at Penrith



Few people in the Mountains seem to have heard of Thornton - the massive high and medium density housing project the NSW State Government is having built in Penrith.

It demonstrates the way the government instrumentality Urban Growth is showing how Sydney will need to live to meet planned population growth over the next 30 years.

UrbanGrowth NSW is the government’s urban transformation agency with a mandate to focus on large-scale projects while transitioning out of greenfields residential land development, a legacy of the former Landcom.

Sited on previously Commonwealth Defence land, Thornton covers 43 hectares right next to Penrith Railway Station and CBD. It will comprise 1400 apartments, 600 small lot detached houses, 600 affordable housing units and an onsite aged care facility. Construction is due to be complete in 2020.
