$1B Revitalization of Eastlakes Local Town Centre to include 500 apartments and new shopping and restaurant precinct

(Sydney, Australia) Tuesday January 23, 2018 – Crown Group, the award-winning developer of distinctive residential and commercial properties across Australia, is redefining today’s urban lifestyle with the development of Eastlakes Live, a modern village drawing on the success of Crown Group’s award-winning Top Ryde City Living development. Adjoining Sydney’s Eastlakes Reserve and featuring more than 500 high-end apartments and a new Town Centre, the $1 Billion-project will regenerate the neighborhood and create a vibrant new urban hub.

Eastlakes Live is Crown Group’s urban revitalization of the Eastlakes Local Town Centre. Designed by FJMT, Eastlakes Live will provide more than 500 apartments ranging from studios to penthouses across several buildings designed by maximize stunning views over the Eastlakes Golf Course and Sydney CBD. The property enjoys an ideal location just 10 kilometres from Sydney’s CBD and only three kilometres from the University of South Wales, Sydney Airport and Green Square.

The residences will be situated atop the Eastlakes Town Centre, a new restaurant and retail precinct offering residents and neighbors a diverse range of spaces and experiences for interaction or escape. The new Town Centre will be designed as a modern urban sanctuary that sets a benchmark for retail excellence with major supermarkets, fresh food offerings, a restaurant promenade, street cafes, and a medical centre as well as densely landscaped gardens.

“With Top Ryde City Living, we designed an urban resort with access to luxury amenities, fantastic views and a great, central location,” said Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO, Iwan Sunito.

“Eastlakes Live takes that award-winning model, and builds upon it. In addition to the residential component, Crown Group is also creating a comprehensive Town Centre to be a vibrant anchor for the community, complete with supermarkets and a shopping and dining neighbourhood.”

Crown Group is at the forefront of creating dynamic urban areas with residential projects throughout Sydney. One of Crown Group’s most notable projects – and the one most closely similar to the Eastlakes Live project – is Top Ryde City Living, is a perfectly integrated seven-tower 653-apartment complex that features generous common facilities. The resort-style development is situated right atop the Top Ryde Shopping Centre with views to the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Blue Mountains and North Shore. Renowned for its top-rate alfresco areas, Top Ryde City Living features a 25m infinity pool, extensive landscaped gardens, water features, a children’s playground and barbecue zones set amidst nearly 6,000sqm of outdoor space.

Top Ryde City Living is attractive to a wide variety of buyers, like octogenarian couple William and Gloria Wallace looking to downsize. “For more than 30 years, we lived in a house surrounded by bush, and I wasn’t sure whether I would like living in an apartment. But it’s fantastic. We get plenty of sunshine and lovely breezes through our beautiful modern apartment with large balconies and great views,” said Gloria.

“Everything is easier here, even the simple things,” added William. “It feels like we’re living in a permanent holiday house.”

Local mother Allison Mifsud and her son Cooper jumped at the chance to purchase an apartment at Top Ryde City Living which is perfectly located near Cooper’s school and Allison’s job in Epping. “We just love it and the convenient access to the shops, restaurants and movies. Here we have the garden and all the facilities. It’s better than having a backyard!”

Top Ryde City Living has received a number of awards including the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW President’s award 2014, considered one of the highest property development accolades in Australia. Top Ryde City Living was also named Australia’s Best High Density Development at the UDIA Awards for Excellence in 2014, and an MBA Excellence in Housing award in 2013.

The first image of Eastlakes Live will be released in February. The full design details of the project will be revealed during a VIP unveiling event in May, before sales begin in June.

Eastlakes Live will be built and sold in phases, with the first 134 apartments going to market in June 2018.
