Erko
 
 

Erko is located in Erskineville not far from Sydney Park and within walking distance of Erskineville Railway Station.

The site is a redundant industrial complex with the surrounding area being mainly terrace houses, 2 storey housing and some low rise apartments.

The approach taken to the design of the site by Leighton has been to develop street edge apartment blocks of 6 to 8 storeys. This has given a consistent feel to the precinct while keeping a scale that is sympathetic to the surrounding area.

Open space is provided by defining a small park as part of a broader development of the precinct.

The Erko housing is very popular and is selling fast. The location is ideal for young families, working couples without children and for retirees. There are local shops nearby, ovals and even a training ground for children bicycle riders. Public transport is excellent.

Erko is the first step of a large development of the existing Ashmore Industrial Estate. The City of Sydney has developed an overall master plan for the area.
