A multimillion-dollar vision for 375 homes in a series of high-rise apartments neighbouring the Rouse Hill Metro Station precinct has been approved by NSW Planning Panel.

Developer Deicorp secured the tick of a approval for the major northwest Sydney development at Civic Way Rouse Hill this week.

A spokesman for the developer said in addition to the mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments, the approval also provides for 2500sq m of commercial and retail floor space. Deicorp managing director Fouad Deiri said the development, dubbed Proximity, delivers the “Deicorp DNA by being well-designed, well-built and close to transport”.

“These elements are at the core of every project Deicorp delivers”, Mr Deiri said.

“Our consistent aim is to achieve beautifully designed, well-constructed and conveniently located projects. Proximity ticks all of these boxes.”

The development, which is expected to start construction in October, will see the creation of six high-rise residential buildings with a series of communal open space.

The Deicorp planner said the Proximity project would be completed in 2022.

The Sydney Central Planning Panel approved the major proposal on September 17, following the approval of 272 apartments in Castle Hill by Deicorp, as well as a proposal for 987 units at the Tallawong Station site.
