(Sydney, Australia) Tuesday, May 8, 2018 – A fully styled unique display centre showcasing today’s urban lifestyle in Sydney’s most modern village, Eastlakes Live, has opened to the public.

Featuring a luxuriously-appointed penthouse kitchen and bathroom and an architecturally-designed living room and bedroom, the Eastlakes Live display suite opened at 19a Evans Avenue, Eastlakes on Saturday 5th May.

Buyers have the chance to see for themselves the much-anticipated luxurious penthouse before apartment sales begin at the grand launch day on June 2.

Attracting interest from property and design enthusiasts across Sydney, Crown Group’s latest development Eastlakes Live was unveiled last Wednesday at an event attended by more than 1,300 people at The Star in Sydney.

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.

A scale building model will also be exhibited at the display suite showing the unique design, water feature and landscape.

“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,” said Crown Group Chairman and CEO, Iwan Sunito, “With Eastlakes Live, we’re defining the community of the future, the way of future living.”

Being so close to nature, 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.

“Crown Group is taking Eastlakes Live to the next level, creating Sydney’s New East and setting new benchmarks for others to follow,” said Mr. Sunito, “A vibrant community, a modern urban hub of Sydney, feel you senses come alive at Eastlakes Live. The new east, much more than meets the eye.”

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

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