March 27, 2014 – Crown Group has marked the sale of the 300th apartment at its landmark Parramatta residential tower, V by Crown.
Since it was launched in 2012, V by Crown in Parramatta – a $309 million, 519 apartment ‘vertical village’ from Sydney-based property developer Crown Group – has been hugely popular with investors and owner-occupiers.
Crown Group is today celebrating the sale of the 300th apartment at the development, secured on Tuesday March 25.
More than 50 per cent of V by Crown’s Midrise City-View Apartment Release has sold since it was released for sale last week.
Crown Group Director of Sales and Marketing, Adam Sparkes said there was a strong demand in Parramatta for high-quality apartments with generous common facilities.
“To reach 300 apartments exchanged is an important milestone for any residential project and we are proud to have hit the mark this week,” Mr Sparkes said.
“V by Crown offers buyers an affordable entry price for both discerning owner-occupiers and investors alike. V is destined to become a landmark residential building in the heart of Parramatta and will set a new benchmark for high quality residential offerings in the area,” Mr Sparkes said.
V by Crown features 519 apartments and resort-style facilities including pool, gym, sauna, conference facilities, music room, theatrette, library and a modern retail and restaurant precinct at ground level.
It is located in the heart of Parramatta’s city centre, close to Church Street’s eateries, Westfield shopping centre, rail and ferry connections, as well as Parramatta Heritage Parklands.
Last month, Parramatta was named the most liveable suburb in New South Wales in a report released by NSW’s Urban Development Institute of Australia. It came out top in a comparison of 20 suburbs which looked at infrastructure, public transport and access to employment.
V by Crown Project Sales Manager, Anthony Falas said buyers were attracted to V by Crown’s location in the heart of the Parramatta CBD, close to transport and shops.
Sales at the development had been strong since the project’s launch and increased after the Christmas break, Mr Falas said.
“I’m pleased with the pace of sales at V by Crown. Demand continues to be strong and there has been a lot of pent up demand for the higher level apartments,”
“Our 300th sale is definitely worthy of a celebration!”
“Buyers are attracted to the high-quality finishes, first-class facilities and exceptional location in the heart of Parramatta’s CBD.”
“The Midrise City-View Apartments offer great views to the CBD and Parramatta Park and have been incredibly popular,” Mr Falas said.
V by Crown is one of Crown Group’s four projects currently under construction in Sydney.
Last week, Nine Network’s Financial Review Sunday described Crown Group as a company “on the tipping point of becoming one of Australia’s largest private developers.”
V by Crown’s Midrise City-View Release includes 76 apartments with a mix of studio, one-bedroom, one-bedroom-and-study, two-bedroom and two-bedroom-and- study apartments.
V by Crown is expected to complete in mid 2016.
