Directly adjacent to the train station, just metres from the 7th largest Westfield in NSW and surrounded by more than 1000 retail stores, Thornton Central has been purposefully designed to be Penrith’s most exciting hub, and the cornerstone of the area’s flourishing CBD expansion.

In conjunction with joint venture partners St Hilliers, Thornton Central has seen the transformation of North Penrith into a vibrant, urban village style precinct with beautifully appointed 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and in excess of 4000 residents currently in-situ. 

Furthermore, the proposed retail and commercial sites have been designed to feature world-class amenities including a gymnasium, medical centre, childcare, supermarket, retail outlets and eateries.


The project at a glance

  • Thornton Central is an exemplar of a mixed-use, transport oriented development directly adjacent to Penrith Station and comprising a total of 1050 apartments with a vibrant retail precinct designed to activate the existing station plaza.
  • The retail precinct is designed to deliver approximately 4,600sqm of supermarket and specialist retail and 2,400sqm of commercial space including a medical centre, gym and childcare.
  • To date, 546 apartments have been 100% pre-sold and completed across the first 4 stages. Future stages are planned to deliver another 505 apartments in two landmark towers that will establish the future skyline of Penrith.
