A modern sculptural addition to North Sydney’s skyline, Crown Group’s long anticipated landmark development has reached its top.
Designed by Koichi Takada Architects, the 20-storey Skye by Crown Group includes 242 apartments, a grand foyer, a top-floor gym, an infinity edge rooftop pool and views over the leafy Lower North Shore.
After more than two years of construction, Skye by Crown Group will mark its official “topping out” as the building’s highest structural feature is finished this week.
Skye by Crown Group will be home to hundreds of new North Sydney residents when completed later this year. The tower’s new eateries and retail outlets will become part of North Sydney’s thriving commercial community; attracting residents, visitors and workers.
North Sydney Mayor Jilly Gibson, at an official ground breaking ceremony in 2014 said Skye by Crown Group would add significantly to the area’s urban renewal, providing homes for hundreds of new North Sydney residents.
“Developments such as this cement North Sydney’s status as a growing commercial and residential district,” North Sydney Mayor Jilly Gibson said.
Skye by Crown Group is located at 211-223 Pacific Highway North Sydney with a ground-level pedestrian through-site link set to provide public access between Pacific Highway and Angelo Street.
The tower is close to shops, transport, top-ranked schools and within easy reach of Sydney’s CBD and major universities.
Crown Group Director of Sales and Marketing Roy Marcellus said there would be nothing else in North Sydney like Skye by Crown Group.
The building’s design captures views over North Sydney and Sydney’s CBD, one of many features which set it apart from other new developments in the area.
At North Sydney’s Skye by Crown Group, five luxury penthouses positioned on level 20, will offer premium high-rise living combined with a sprawling private rooftop gardens, lush greenery, outdoor seating and expansive landscaped terraces.
“These penthouses are enhanced by the building’s quality design, generous residential amenities and its outstanding location in North Sydney,” Mr Marcellus said.
“We are excited to mark this important milestone for Crown Group as Skye by Crown Group reaches its top.” Mr Marcellus added.
