The Carinya Apartments project in Blacktown is proving popular with young families.
WESTERN Sydney’s population boom is seeing fibro homes in suburban hot spots knocked down to make way for apartments.
Blacktown’s Carinya St is the perfect example of this. Close to Westpoint Blacktown and the train station, the many units currently sprouting out of the ground are set to be joined by hundreds more as development applications flood in.

RSL SELLING ‘RAFFLE APARTMENT’ ON THE HARBOUR
Carinya Apartments is one of the projects proving popular with buyers — but unlike those closer to the city, this one is attracting families.
KRE Property’s Hossain Mehdee said about 20 of the 58 apartments have been sold, and most have gone to local couples with young children.
Seamless indoor to outdoor flow.
“The two- and three-bedroom units with studies are selling well — including a study is quite a new concept and people like it because they can use it to work from home or make it a play room for the kids,” the operations manager said.
He said the families also liked the idea of a rooftop, which will have seating and be bordered by gardens.
All apartments have a breakfast bar in the kitchen.
“Carinya is an Aboriginal word meaning happy, peaceful home — and it works because it’s a quiet street near everything,” Mr Mehdee said.
Each unit has a balcony and car spot. Modern floor tiles, split-system airconditioning and video intercom are internal features. Kitchens have breakfast bars while bathrooms come with frameless glass showers.
