As a thriving hub for business and innovation, Macquarie Park is no stranger to investor interest, but with a growing community feel, it’s also attracting families.
A new mixed-use development on Herring Road looks set to appeal to both groups of buyers.
Macquarie Rise by TOGA Group will deliver high-end living across three architect-designed residential towers – ranging from one, two and three-bedroom floorplans to four-bedroom penthouses.
Macquarie Rise is an elevated luxury living experience in Sydney’s Macquarie Park.
The 250 “family-sized” apartments offer innovative architectural inclusions, such as multi-purpose rooms, and access to hotel-like resident amenities and entertainment zones.
Two expansive storeys of commercial, office and retail spaces will further enrich the fabric and functionality of the precinct, including a fully landscaped public plaza.
Construction is set to begin in 2024, with completion scheduled for early 2027.
‘The Silicon Valley of NSW’
Macquarie Park is a robust investor market and busy hub for business and innovation, casually known as “the Silicon Valley of NSW”, says TOGA Group Executive General Manager Anthony Falas.
“Statistically, it’s the largest non-CBD office market in Australia,” he says.
The area is home to 180 international corporations, including pharmaceuticals, electronics and telecommunications, as well as start-ups, innovators, and educational institutions such as Morling College and Macquarie University close by.

Falas says a recent 4.5 gold star rating by the Independent Construction Industry Rating Tool (iCIRT) was another drawcard to Macquarie Rise.
“That’s resonated very well with our enquiries and purchasers… It definitely does give confidence to the market,” he says.
However, more than half of enquiries to date have come from owner-occupiers and families, drawn to the curated green spaces and ‘urban village’ feel.
He says buyers want a strategic location with room for growth, and Macquarie Park fits the bill with a range of educational, business, medical, retail and cultural amenities.
“We’re getting a lot of upsizing… [buyers] still want to stay in the area but want to upgrade into a bigger apartment.
“On the other hand, we’re noticing a lot of downsizers, coming in and buying a two-bedroom or two-bedroom plus multi-purpose room; selling their large homes on 600-700 square metres in Macquarie Park, North Ryde, Eastwood, Epping and those areas and coming into Macquarie Park.”
A vibrant precinct for dining, entertaining, retail and business.
Access is everything, with local amenities including shopping at Macquarie Centre, studying at Macquarie University or working at Macquarie Park Business Park.
Macquarie Rise is also less than 20km from Sydney’s CBD and 30km to Sydney Airport.
For nature lovers, there’s an array of parks, bushland, and walking and cycling paths.
An impressive public transport network catering to local needs will be further enhanced by a new metro line in 2024.
“We love the area because it’s got these real fundamentals,” says Falas. “It’s a very integrated, well-linked suburb.”
Innovation isn’t just reserved for local business, with Macquarie Rise including a range of well-considered design features that pre-empt future requirements for residents.
Stunning kitchen design and finishes.
Designed by award-winning Turner Studio, with interiors by renowned Stack Studio, Macquarie Rise embodies an ‘urban village’ lifestyle with resort-style amenities, secure living and clear considerations around space and wellness.
Over half of the apartments include a multipurpose feature in their design to enable flexible living.
“The multipurpose room is an adaptable room. You can have as a study area or you can open it up and extend your living area,” Falas says.
The apartments come in a variety of floor plans, offering balconies, terraces, courtyards and bespoke personalised elements. Many also have secure parking and basement storage.
Inside, there’s a natural aesthetic with striking natural stone and timber elements, with plenty of light and space, and bushland views across the Lower North Shore.
A gym and Pilates studio are part of the development’s wellness offering.
From a 20-metre lap pool to a Pilates studio, gym, and karaoke and cinema room, Macquarie Rise prioritises health and wellbeing, and deliver high-end living in “family-sized” apartments, ranging from one, two and three-bedroom floorplans to four-bedroom penthouses.
The green central plaza offers lush outdoor spaces and play areas for children.
Club Rise on top of a mixed-use podium is perfect for barbecues and bonding with neighbours. Retail spaces downstairs add up to 1000sqm of eateries and shopping options.
The design also accommodates evolving work culture with apartments catering to remote-work needs, as well as a business centre with workstations overlooking common areas, plus lounge areas and a kitchenette.
“This way, home can be home, and your work can be elsewhere,” Falas says.
