Green facilities to help connect residents with nature
The latest project from Sydney-based developer Crown Group features a cascading water wall and takes on new heights in its use of green space.
The $395 million residential development is located five kilometres from Sydney’s central business district, and its facilities are set to include four buildings, 331 apartments, vertical gardens, a rooftop infinity pool, a cantilevered gym, a function and dining room, a music room, private rooftop gardens, retail outlets, and a rooftop lounge.
In addition, it will include a water wall, which will stretch 22 metres, or seven storeys tall, along with a rainforest-inspired bamboo-covered walkway, a private rooftop lounge, and balconies.
Crown Group chief executive officer Iwan Sunito says the vision for the development is to create a green revolution in Sydney’s architecture. “We set out to revolutionise the use of green space in residential developments, breaking away from tradition to cater for people looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle,” Sunito says. “It is everyone’s desire to find a place of escape; a place of tranquility.”
Designed by Sydney-based architects SJB, the project aims to provide residents more engagement with nature via natural materials, a tranquil lagoon, mature trees, outdoor retreat areas and rooftop gardens.
Crown Group will also build a new public park adjacent to the development and will dedicate this area to the community.
“Our vision is for the buildings to feel like an extension of the green space; a place where residents can relax and breathe,” Sunito says.
The development is set to begin construction next year and is scheduled for completion in 2019.
