7 March 2019 – As Australia’s premier city for culture, commerce and tourism, Sydney has become one the world’s most attractive investment destinations. Now, leading Australian developer Crown Group is creating a new residential community that is set to become the most exciting address in Sydney’s east. Stage one of Eastlakes Live by Crown Group is set to open in 2021, offering a new precinct complete with luxury apartments, the area’s best retail and dining offerings, landscaped gardens, wellness facilities and new playgrounds.

Crown Group Director of Sales Roy Marcellus said Sydney has emerged as one of the world’s most multicultural and diverse cities, attracting people from all over the globe, to live and play.

“Australia is a highly sought-after destination to live in and given its robust and stable economy, it is an ideal place to invest,” he said. “Australia has set a world record with 28 years of consistent economic growth, averaging 3 per cent a year; interest rates are at a record low of 1.5% and unemployment is at an historic low of 5%. Sydney’s median house price has tripled in 20 years and given the economic fundamentals underlying the housing market, we predict there is more growth ahead.

“Sydney has also proven itself as the cultural and business heart of Australia – 41 per cent of Australia’s top 500 companies have their head offices in Greater Sydney, including Apple, Coca-Cola Amatil, Google, IBM, Nastlé, Nokia and Sony.”

The economy is also bolstered by strong demand from visiting tourists and strong immigration.

“There were 1.4 million tourists travelling from China to Australia in 2018, a 250 per cent increase in 7 years; and 469,200 Japanese travellers, a 41 per cent increase during the same period.

“As for education, Australia is regarded as the third top destination in the world for international university students – it also has the 3rd highest number of universities in the world’s top 100 list.”

Eastlakes Live by Crown Group, an outstanding development created in collaboration with internationally acclaimed architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmt), won the 2018 Melbourne Design Awards in the “Graphic Design – Identity and Branding – Lifestyle” category.

Set to create a future lifestyle destination in the new east, stage one of the mixed-use development features 134 luxury apartments ranging from one-bedroom apartments to penthouses and a new shopping precinct with 15 retail outlets. The resort-style health and fitness facilities include a 25m swimming pool, gymnasium, barbeque facilities, function rooms, water feature, landscaped gardens, rooftop lounge and entertainment facilities. Stage two will create a new town centre with a mix of residential and retail components.

“Eastlakes is the new growing suburb in the east of Sydney, offering an attractive lifestyle in a completely transformed destination. Surrounded by all the best that Sydney could offer, residents have easy access to the beautiful beaches, parks, Moore Park sporting stadiums, golf courses, and retail and dining precinct,” Mr Marcellus said.

“Eastlakes Live is creating a charming and exceptional place, a vibrant community that people will flock to and stay for the rest of their lives – enjoying the irresistible and absolute future urban lifestyle.

The construction of Eastlakes Live by Crown Group stage one is scheduled for completion in 2021.

A premium range of apartments is now available for sale, from $679,400 to $1,948,000. Penthouses are priced from $2,520,220 to $2,713,000.

The display centre is now open daily from 10am to 4pm, located at 19a Evans Avenue, Eastlakes.
