The Bond is the latest building to open in Norwest Business Park, a commercial building that’s part of a larger plan to create a sprawling health and medical precinct in the Hills.
The Mulpha-constructed building prominently features cross laminated timber in, its design, ensuring both efficiency and increased carbon neutrality for occupants.
In attendance at the opening today were Mulpha’s Head of Developments Tim Spencer and Mayor Dr Peter Gangemi, who were proud to present the sleekly designed building to those in attendance.
Mr Spencer was thankful to the entire Mulpha team for their part in making The Bond a reality through the pandemic: “COVID showed how massively important teamwork is… Everyone plays a massive part in getting something like this up.”
Mayor Gangemi was excited to see the building open, sharing its potential as part of the constantly developing Norwest Business Park. “Here in Bella Vista, having a health precinct, us getting more commercial and health facilities, and having an aging population, The Bond here at Norwest really fits what we’re trying to do in The Hills perfectly.”
The Hills District is one of Northwest Sydney’s most rapidly expanding suburbs, and the introduction of The Bond recognises that as residents grow older, they will need access to more specialist medical services in the area. Soon to come to the building are medical practitioners such as Douglas Hanley Moir pathology, psychology providers Talbot Centre and an IVF clinic from fertility specialist Antony Lighten.
Already set up within the building are GenesisCare Oncology, who have invested $10 million into this centre to bring world-class cancer treatment to the region.
GenesisCare NSW’s General Manager Fergus Rourke was excited to see the centre open, building off the work previously done at Macquarie University: “From today, patients from the Hills and across the region are coming to Norwest to receive world-class care in their community, without the burden of travelling to centres in Blacktown or Westmead as they’ve had to.”
The Bond is officially open as of today, with GenesisCare already taking on patients. Other tenants will begin to occupy the building soon, including a cafe and restaurant that will be of benefit to workers, patients and vistors to the area.
