It's the changing face of Sydney – new apartments on top of shopping centres and close to train stations.
It’s the changing face of Sydney – apartment living with the convenience of shops, restaurants and transport at your doorstep. And it doesn’t get much more convenient than Rosebery, which is close to the city and has a plethora of transport options, including buses and rail at Green Square station.
Designed by Environa Studio with interiors by Bennett Murada, a new Rosebery development known as the Astor will have 105 apartments across two buildings, both of seven storeys. The developer is LIVstyle, whose other Rosebery projects include Verde and The Parker Residences. LIVstyle’s director Aaron Tippett says Rosebery is a “social and cultural hotbed” that is in the thick of urban renewal. “Every day you can see the area changing for the better,” he says.
Another fast-changing location is Ashfield, where a long-held plan to add 101 apartments above the sprawling Ashfield Mall will come to fruition in 2017 when Ashfield Central is completed. The two buildings will comprise 101 apartments, designed by JPR Architects. Selling agent Sam Elbanna, of CPM Realty, says the location, which is across the road from Ashfield’s train station, will give buyers the opportunity to be at the centre of a revitalised and thriving inner-west suburb. “It puts all the energy and convenience of urban life right on your doorstep,” Elbanna says. In the city’s north-west the Jardine development in Epping will be about 350 metres from the train station. It is scheduled to be built within two years. McGrath chief executive John McGrath says the north-west corridor is one of the highest growth areas in Australia. “With significant private and public infrastructure investment, it will only get better and better,” he saysAstor Respected architects Environa Studio have added their signature green touch to the Astor. It will feature vertical green walls and slots in the facade that create visible entry points. Residents will enter their apartments through a series of walkways leading them past large and small communal spaces. “One of our design tenets is to ensure the journey for residents to their front doors is an interesting one,” says Tone Wheeler from Environa Studio. “When they enter their apartment they will experience a feeling of sanctuary.” The result, says Peter Shield, residential project director of the selling agents Ray White Erskineville, is “a warm and inviting feel”.
