A local construction firm has been selected by Frasers Property Australia to build 184 townhouses, creating around 200 construction jobs.
Located in south-west Sydney, the construction works will be part of Frasers Property Australia’s Ed.Square development.
Growthbuilt was selected to construct a range of Torrens Title and strata housing, including 156 townhouses, 14 terrace-style homes and 14 urban lofts with private parking.
The townhouses will be set across five blocks, each with a common parking area. The contract also includes private landscaping, pocket parks and two landscaped ‘mews’ area.
It is the first of several building contracts to be awarded at Ed.Square.

Growthbuilt Director and Joint Chief Executive Officer, Colin Rahim, said the company is continuously looking at ways to create an exciting future for its people, clients and communities.
“It is an honour to work alongside other community-focused and residential specialists who, like Growthbuilt, only have the finest and most powerful expert teams,” Rahim said.
“We align with partners that share the same values and visions as we do, and therefore we are delighted to work alongside and deliver success through collaborative outcomes with Frasers Property Australia, bringing this vision and masterplan to reality.”
Liverpool City Council Mayor, Wendy Waller, said Ed.Square is a great example of a contemporary town centre that Sydney should be looking to as a model.
“Ed.Square is a good addition to the rich and varied fabric of lifestyle offerings in our local government area. We have distinct suburbs, a recognisable CBD, semi-rural and new-release areas,” Waller said.
“This new town centre at Ed.Square offers a truly urban living experience putting jobs, people and public transport together.”
Construction on the first 184 homes is expected to take 18 months. The first stage of the Ed.Square Town Centre is estimated to be completed in the second half of 2020. Stage two will include an additional 15,000 square metres and will aim to bring the total retail space to 40,000 square metres.
