Sydney suburb, Marsden Park using fastest internet and home automation to sell appartments

One of Sydney’s newest north-west suburb, Marsden Park is leveraging technology to sell apartments in a new masterplan.  Rezoned under the Government’s Precinct Acceleration Protocol, the area aims to blend high-end, cutting-edge technology with contemporary design, open green spaces and sporting and recreational facilities.

In a first for any Australian development, the entire masterplan, it’ll utilise FiberCorp network which offers Calix internet (details below) and high-end smart home technology as standard inclusions. Each home will have an internet speed capability that is up to 100 times faster than the highest plan currently offered by the NBN.

Each apartment will also be able to benefit from smart home automation, enabling occupants to control lighting, climate, free-to-air and pay TV, video intercom, security systems, home access and internet – as well as booking recreational areas such as basketball courts and the cinema room – all from a wall keypad and a smartphone app. The technology will be achieved with a singular application branded specifically for Marsden Central.

In addition to the technology, Marsden Central will have ample green spaces and picnic areas in the midst of Marsden Park’s sporting and recreation fields, as well as a community facilities hub that will include a café, a 50-metre lap pool, a spa, a library, gym and four basketball and multi-purpose courts – all to facilitate connected community living. A large range of commercial spaces will also be created to meet the needs of local businesses.

Development Manager at Kanebridge, Joe Aflak says,

Marsden Central will host the fastest internet speeds over a fibre network in a Sydney residential building. As a result, our dwellings will boast unprecedented internet speeds alongside the most cutting edge home automation capabilities that are future-proofing the community we’re designing.

The technology will run over a fibre backbone with the ability to even order your pizza from the local participating pizza store in the future.

Given its close proximity to Sydney Business Park, Marsden Central also boasts attractive employment opportunities, with the park planning to deliver 17,000 direct jobs to the area. Only a five-minute drive from Sydney’s M7, Marsden Central has been designed with the aim of connecting its community to New South Wales’s two biggest CBD’s, Sydney and Parramatta, as well as Northwest Business Park and The Hills District.

Aflak went on to say,

We’re excited about the possibilities for the community we’re creating, given that this neighbourhood is benefiting from billions of dollars of investment over the next 20 years as part of the Government’s Western Sydney Deal.

The Government’s investment will make Marsden Park among the most connected communities to the big CBDs of Parramatta and Sydney, while Marsden Central will ensure it is the most technologically connected.
