Revitalization of Eastlakes Town Centre designed for residents to live, shop and play all in one place

 (Sydney, Australia) April 26, 2018 – Crown Group, the award-winning developer of distinctive residential and commercial properties across Australia, is redefining the vibrant urban hub with Eastlakes Live, a modern residential community next to Eastlakes greenbelt, featuring more than 400 luxury apartments and a new Eastlakes Town Centre. The unique design by fjmt creates connections and strengthens existing local community with a range of spaces and experiences with wide appeal across a diversity of residents.

“The great place for people is defined by beautiful buildings, the availability of cultural activities, great public spaces and vibrant communities,” said Iwan Sunito, Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO.  “Eastlakes Live is the intersection of all these things – and more.”

“We’ve built on the strength and diversity of the existing community with a powerful mixed-use design that embraces the environs and brings amenities and services right to the residents’ doorsteps,”

“With Eastlakes Live, we’re defining the community of the future, the way of future living.”

Eastlakes Live is at the tip of a trend of high-end, mixed-use communities like LA Live, an upcoming precinct in the United States and Top Ryde City Living, another of Crown Group’s developments in the northern Sydney suburb of Ryde that integrates the convenience of mixed-use communities with a diverse range of shopping and culinary experiences as well as luxury resort-style amenities. The revitalization of Eastlakes Town Centre builds upon an existing community at the edge of the Eastlakes Reserve. Connected to the area’s vast natural green surrounds, Eastlakes Live celebrates its rich cultural diversity with a new restaurant and retail precinct. The innovative design embraces indoor-outdoor living with a variety of outdoor spaces and shopping and dining venues that are designed for creating a unique sense of shared community.

“Eastlakes Live is connecting people together to create a place where residents can live, shop and play all in the one place,” said Mr. Sunito, “We want to create a great place for people, a precinct, an urban hub, a vibrant community and a destination in its own right.”

With a convenient location being so close to nature, Eastlakes Live brings together vibrant urban life and a welcoming community environment. In the heart of a swath of greenery – Eastlake Golf Course to the southeast and the Eastlakes Reserve to the west, Eastlakes Live is also close to extensive parklands and Sydney’s best beaches including Bondi, Coogee, Bronte, Clovelly and Maroubra.

The development also enjoys an ideal location just 6 kilometres from Sydney’s CBD, 3 kilometres from the University of New South Wales, Sydney Airport, Green Square and outdoor recreation. Eastlakes Live will appeal to a variety of residents, from first home buyers to downsizing couples and young families.

“Eastlakes Live is close to everything, the city, beaches, dining, airport, great schools and universities,” added Mr. Sunito. “As the city of Sydney grows, Eastlakes will become the next ‘big thing’.”

Eastlakes Live is generating a high level of excitement in the market, exceeding its expressions of interest (EOI) target with more than $134 million worth of potential apartment sales to date.

The $1 billion development is designed by Sydney-based architects fjmt, Eastlakes Live aims to set a new standard for retail excellence with two major supermarkets with fresh food offerings reflecting the diversity of the neighborhood, a restaurant promenade, street cafes, a medical centre, as well as densely-landscaped gardens and children’s play areas.

Stage one of the Eastlakes Live development will include 134 luxury apartments ranging from one-bedroom apartments to penthouses and 12 retail outlets. Stage two of Eastlakes Live will complete the new town centre with a mix of residential and retail components, with details still to come.

Sales for stage one will begin in June 2018 with expected construction completion in 2021. Crown Group is now accepting expressions of interest from prospective buyers.

The display centre opens on Saturday 5th May and will be open daily from 10am to 4pm, located at 19a Evans Avenue, Eastlakes.
