Capturing a growing international trend of transforming city rooftops into modern hangouts, Crown Group’s new $88-million development Crown Ashfield features a residents’ rooftop area designed to be an oasis in Sydney’s Inner West.

Set to take advantage of stunning Sydney Harbour Bridge and CBD views, the 325-sqm rooftop pavilion will feature barbeque facilities, a landscaped garden, mature trees, a gymnasium and an outdoor dining and retreat area.

Crown Group has already received hundreds of enquiries for the project to be completed in mid-2016.

Crown Group Project and Commercial Sales Director Anthony Falas said the rooftop was one of Crown Ashfield’s most unique and sought-after design elements.

The nine-story 79-apartment development also features a unique open-air atrium designed to draw natural light and air into the centre of the building.

“There’s a growing demand for high-end apartments in Ashfield and people are looking for something unique with an element of luxury,” Mr Falas said.

Crown Ashfield’s spacious rooftop pavilion allows residents and guests to experience the spectacular panoramic views.

“The rooftop pavilion takes full advantage Sydney’s exceptional outdoor lifestyle,” he said.

Designed by Surry Hills-based architects Turner, the modern development comprises 79 boutique apartments; four exclusive retail spaces suited to restaurants and cafes; resident and visitors’ car parking; a grand lobby lounge; theatrette; piano room; a flowing water feature; lush greenery and natural elements.

Located at 168 Liverpool Road; Crown Ashfield is nine kilometres from Sydney’s CBD, six kilometres from The University of Sydney, 10 kilometres from Sydney’s airport, 300 metres from Ashfield Mall and 750 metres from Ashfield train station.

Crown Ashfield’s unique design and location close to shops, schools and public transport appealed to buyers, Mr Falas said.

Crown Ashfield will be unrivaled in the Inner West,” he added.

The development features a range of apartment types including one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-study, two bedroom and three-bedroom apartments plus top-floor penthouses with spectacular views.
