Norwest master developer Mulpha has secured two major tenancies by leading specialist medical innovators for its landmark timber building The Bond at Norwest, Sydney. Mulpha has secured commitments for over 30 percent of the building ahead of construction commencing later this year.
Genesis Oncology has taken 1050m2 of space to set up a world class cancer treatment centre in the Hills District, and Dr Antony Lighten has taken 735m2 of space for his IVF Clinic and reproductive surgery. Space has also been taken up by orthodontic, obstetrics and gynaecology practices.
Mulpha Developments Executive General Manager, Tim Spencer said:
“We are thrilled that such leading-edge medical innovators have shown strong commitment to Norwest as it transforms into a major residential, commercial and retail hub in Sydney’s economic growth corridor along the Metro Norwest. Both companies are a natural fit for The Bond, given its focus on wellness, sustainability and innovation, and proximity to the Norwest Private Hospital."
GenesisCare Chief Executive Officer, Dan Collins, said: “We are proud to be designing a world class cancer treatment centre here at The Bond so that patients in the Hills District and Western Sydney can access high quality oncology care close to home.
Dr Antony Lighten, a fertility specialist and IVF and reproductive surgeon who has a 5-month waiting list for new clients, said he was drawn to The Bond because of the beauty in the wood, the glass design and green credentials, all contributing to a health and wellness environment.
“The Bond is going to be a landmark building in Bella Vista. I think it will be a beautiful, relaxing space for the Day Surgery and IVF Clinic. I have been waiting specifically for this building to start construction because of its uniqueness.
Dr Michelle Byrne, Major of the Hills Shire and a former cancer researcher welcomed the new facility. “The Hills is one of the fastest growing LGAs in the country with an expected population of 290,000 by 2036. We need more services particularly in the areas of healthcare to support our rapidly growing population and to ensure residents have access to the best possible treatments.
“We welcome the addition of a brand-new facility that will provide treatments such as radiation therapy close to home without the need for patients to travel to other parts of Sydney to access these services”.
The Bond, located on the corners of Elizabeth Macarthur Drive and Norbrik Drive, will be a landmark timber building at the gateway of Norwest’s commercial precinct, adjacent to the heritage-listed Bella Vista Farm and connected by on-demand shuttle buses to the Metro stations at Norwest and Bella Vista. It will comprise a ground floor retail lobby environment, six floors of commercial office building, childcare facility for 110 children, end-of-trip facilities, basement car carparking, short-term visitor parking and service vehicle and loading facilities.
