August 8, 2013 – Crown Group has announced Viva by Crown, the final stage of its award-winning $500 Million residential development Top Ryde City Living will be launched for sale in early-September.

Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito made the announcement at a special Viva by Crown VIP Preview event at Top Ryde City Living attended by more than 400 guests yesterday, August 7.

Viva by Crown comprises 166 apartments within two buildings including architecturally-designed interiors by Koichi Takada Architects.

After more than 90 per cent of released apartments at Top Ryde City Living sold-out earlier this year – including the entire selection of one bedroom apartments – Crown Group has received hundreds of enquiries for the final release, Viva by Crown.

Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito said Viva by Crown would set a new benchmark for residential apartment living in the Ryde area.

Residents will have full access to Top Ryde City Living’s expansive, well-appointed, common facilities including a music room, library, media theatres, indoor/outdoor function area and pool.

A brand-new Viva by Crown display suite will open on August 10.

“Viva by Crown will be the last chance buyers have to secure an apartment at Top Ryde City Living. There is a huge amount of interest from buyers ahead of the opening of our brand new display suite,” Mr Sunito said.

“The first five buildings at Top Ryde City Living have sold exceptionally well and demand continues to increase as Top Ryde rapidly becomes one of Sydney’s property hotspots,” Mr Sunito said.

“Viva by Crown’s exceptional location, close to shops, transport and major employment hubs, is a major drawcard for investors and owner-occupiers alike,” Mr Sunito said.

Celebrity Chef Pete Evans added a splash of flavour to the Viva by Crown VIP Preview event yesterday with a live cooking demonstration before guests were given an exclusive first look at Viva by Crown’s brand-new promotional video.

Viva by Crown apartments will feature high-quality European appliances, five-star resort style facilities and the convenience of a large, new shopping centre below.

Top Ryde City Living was named the best High Density Development in NSW and the ACT at the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW Awards for Excellence 2013 held last month, awards which acknowledge the best in urban developments across NSW and the ACT.

Crown Group Project Sales Manager Roy Marcellus said enquiries had been flooding in for Viva by Crown and urged people to register their interest before the launch to ensure they didn’t miss out.

“It’s important for people interested to register early before the launch in early September,” Mr Marcellus said.

“From my experience the earlier my clients have registered the happier they have been with their results on launch day. They get a greater selection of apartments to choose from and the best price.”

Positioned at one of Sydney’s most spectacular vantage points, Top Ryde City Living residents enjoy panoramic views to the Blue Mountains, Chatswood, North Sydney and the Sydney CBD and The Sydney Harbour Bridge visible from many apartments and common viewing platforms.

“We have received a huge amount of enquiries from both our local downsizers and savvy investors. Being on top of one of Australia’s newest and largest shopping centres makes Viva by Crown perfect for both downsizers and investors,” Mr Marcellus added.

“The view from the shared outdoor viewing area is also a huge drawcard.”

Construction of Top Ryde City Living’s final two buildings commenced in March this year and five buildings, landscaped gardens and the full suite of common facilities are already complete.

The entire project is expected to be completed in mid-2014.

Viva by Crown – the final release of apartments at Top Ryde City Living – will be launched in early-September 2013.

A brand-new Viva by Crown display suite will open exclusively to people who have registered their interest on Saturday August 10 and Sunday August 11 and open to the public from August 12.

Viva by Crown offers apartments in the final two buildings which are now under construction and will be completed in mid-2014.

Viva by Crown display suite is located at:

Shop 3019, Top Ryde City Shopping Centre
Corner of Devlin Street & Blaxland Road, Ryde (Ground Floor next to the Post Office)

Viva by Crown display suite will open Monday to Saturday 9am – 5pm and Sunday 10am – 5pm.
