(Sydney, Australia) Thursday October 19 2017 – Infinity by Crown Group has been selected as one of the World’s Best Projects at this year’s Property Congress.
Hosted by the Property Council of Australia, The Annual Property Congress is one of the largest events in Australia’s property industry and this year will be held at the Cairns Convention Centre from October 18-20.
Projects from around the world were considered for the World’s Best Projects session on Friday October 20.
Set to become one of Green Square’s most recognised structures, the 20-storey building designed by Koichi Takada Architects will be distinguished by its unique looped shape and a large void in its north-facing façade, allowing natural light to penetrate the tower’s 1180-sqm central landscaped plaza.
The $575-million development will sit the corner of Bourke Street and Botany Road – with pedestrian access from Green Square’s new Ebsworth Street and will feature approximately 30 retail outlets, restaurants and cafés; plus a conference centre to hold 450 people.
Improved public transport access forms part of the design; with the extension of an underground pedestrian walkway and construction of a new wheel-chair access lift linking Botany Road’s public plaza with Green Square train station.
Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO Iwan Sunito said he envisaged Infinity by Crown Group would become a residential and retail hub, as well as a continued driver of collaboration and innovation within the new Green Square Town Centre.
“We are immensely proud of Infinity By Crown Group and it has been an exceptional project from the start – from the first stages of development and design selection through to the most successful sales launch in Crown Group’s history,” Mr Sunito said.
“We are proud to be included as one of The World’s Best Projects at this year’s Property Congress,” he said.
Crown Group Development Director Chris Pope said the Infinity by Crown Group design was endorsed by the City of Sydney Council after an independent design competition.
The project attracted more than 2000 people to the unveiling of its design in Sydney in 2015.
Crown Group later went on to sell more than $380-million worth of apartments within five hours at the project’s sales launch in August of the same year.
“Infinity by Crown Group is designed to maximise access to sunlight and cross ventilation in apartments and take advantage of city views,” Mr Pope said.
Construction of Infinity by Crown Group will be completed in 2019.
Crown Group is now offering a premium selection of one, two and three-bedroom apartments at its latest development in Waterloo, Waterfall by Crown Group priced from $702,000 – $1,716,000.
