16 January 2019 – Construction has started on Sydney’s highly sought-after new residential development, Mastery by Crown Group, in Waterloo. When completed in 2021, it will offer an affordable resort-style destination in the heart of Waterloo, complete with luxurious apartments set in a lush new precinct only minutes from Sydney’s heart.

Located at 48 O’Dea Avenue, Waterloo, the highly-anticipated $500 million project, being developed in partnership with Mitsubishi Jisho Residence, Mastery by Crown Group will comprise 374 luxury apartments in five distinct buildings. It will feature an infinity-edge rooftop pool, gym, spa, mini-cinema, community room and a ground-floor retail precinct comprising a mix of restaurants, cafes and shops.

World-renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma’s innovative 20-story tower features lush, timber-clad design on the building’s green exterior emulating a ‘stacked forest’.

Three further towers are the work of award-winning architect Koichi Takada Architects, while the fifth residential building is designed by established Sydney based architects Silvester Fuller; adding a uniquely local perspective to the development.

Inspired by the interplay of light (hikari) and shadow (kage), apartment interiors designed by Koichi Takada Architects, features modern and sophisticated urban lifestyle. Japanese inspired conceptual interior design offers natural, neutral modern luxury, utilizing generous use of timber-like materials and soft, warm hues.

Mastery Project Director Prisca Edwards said world-class communal facilities added great value to Sydney’s residential developments. Mastery by Crown Group provided Sydneysiders an option to live in the finest resort-style destination, in the most sought-after architectural precinct, at an affordable price.

“High-end apartment buyers believe it’s a must to have resort-style facilities like a swimming pool, gym, rooftop garden, and communal spaces so they can escape from the hustle and bustle of modern city life,” Mrs Edwards said.

“Everyone deserves some sort of break and to find the place where they can enjoy the perfect hassle-free resort-style lifestyle. At Mastery by Crown Group, you can have it all – enjoy the most luxurious urban resort living everyday but at an affordable price compared to the expensive cost of living in a five-star hotel.”.

Residents will also have a novel new dining concept on their doorstep: Sydney’s first Japanese eat street, offering an unrivalled and authentic dining experience for urban dwellers. From the sprawling streets of Tokyo’s Shibuya and Shinjuku special wards, replete with bustling Izakaya, sushi trains and ramen restaurants, to the more formal and reverential tea house that serve Cha-kaiseki.

“At Crown Group, we do not just sell a luxury residence, but the opportunity to enjoy an appealing lifestyle, with luxurious apartments, vibrant dining and shopping experiences, at your doorstep,” Mrs Edwards said.

The new Mastery by Crown Group Display Centre is open every day from 10am to 4pm at 30-36 O’Dea Avenue, Waterloo.

A collection of premium apartments in Mastery by Crown Group is now available for sale priced from $632,000.
