Meet Drew and Warren - first home buyers at Midtown macpark

09 June 2021

Drew Johnson and his partner Warren Bell had been renting an apartment in Greenwich for over two years when they decided it was time to buy their first home together.

“We were looking in areas like North Ryde, Epping, and obviously Macquarie Park. We looked at Midtown MacPark and we really liked the development, but financially we were not in a position to do anything at that time,” says Drew.

That changed when Frasers Property Australia offered an opportunity for buyers to secure their preferred home at Midtown MacPark with just a $10,000 deposit, then pay the balance of the required 10 per cent over a 15-month period while their new home is being built. 

“When we saw the offer we thought we’d investigate further. We met with Michelle from the sales team at Midtown and discussed whether it would be realistic for us to purchase an apartment. We worked out how much we’d have to put aside per week and it turned out it was very feasible,” says Drew.

“Initially we were looking at a one-bedroom apartment but with the offer, we ended up buying a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment at Midtown, which suits us so much better.

“We were very surprised and excited knowing we could actually afford to do this, especially in Sydney,” he says.

The couple love the layout and modern design of the apartment, but what really drew them to Midtown MacPark was the convenient lifestyle on offer in the masterplanned community.

“Midtown MacPark has so much potential. It’s a beautiful area surrounded by all these beautiful gum trees, lovely greenery and shops. It’s like a little oasis in the middle of Sydney and we won’t have to go far at all to get everything we need,” says Warren

“We also like the idea of having a pool and a gym on site. We love staying fit so having these facilities will be amazing.

“We feel like Midtown is a development with a real community focus. It’s like a community within a community. We look forward to moving in, attending the night markets and getting to know the people around us,” Warren says.

Frasers Property is working with the NSW Government to deliver the $2.1 billion masterplanned mixed tenure community, which will integrate approximately 3,300 apartments with a range of community facilities including a proposed school and childcare, aged care, a new central park, pocket parks and playgrounds, a community centre, pool and gym, and all the amenities for modern living within walking distance, underpinned by world-class design. It will be developed in stages over the next 10 to 12 years but the vision is already apparent.
