(Sydney, Australia) Monday October 31, 2016 –V by Crown Group, better known as Parramatta’s Vertical Village will provide a truly glamorous and vibrant lifestyle for the local residents and tourists of Parramatta, Sydney’s second CBD.

Developed by leading property developer Crown Group, V by Crown Group is a luxury residential address with 590-apartments located at the heart of Parramatta. This project won the Five Star Award for Residential High Rise Architecture Australia at the 2016-2017 Asia Pacific Property Awards in June 2016.

Part of V by Crown Group will be the company’s first foray into the boutique luxury hotel business with Skye Hotel Suites. Skye Hotel Suites will be the first 5 star hotel suite offering in Parramatta, with a sophisticated restaurant and bar and intimate meeting rooms.

Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito said “we are confident the Crown Group brand, with its strong reputation, will appeal to the new generation of domestic and international visitors to the city”.

“Our vision is to create a collection of suites which will set a fresh lifestyle standard in Sydney,” Mr Sunito added.

Featuring 72 studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom suites, Skye Hotel Suites at Parramatta will include access to V by Crown Group’s resort-style pool, gym, expansive foyer, conference room, restaurant, sauna, business centre and vibrant alfresco dining and retail piazza.

Up to 9 tenants will fill the retail piazza including: Shokudo Japanese Restaurant and Bar, The Shed and Neil Perry’s Burger Project.

In August this year Neil Perry AM has announced that the striking V by Crown Group tower will be the location for his next Burger Project.

“Parramatta has such a diverse and emerging food and cultural scene and we cannot wait to add Burger Project to the mix,” Perry said.

Crown Group National Development Director Pierre Abrahamse said that securing Burger Project was ‘a great coup’ for Parramatta.

“We’re pleased to welcome internationally renowned chef Neil Perry and his Burger Project to join our world class V by Crown Group retail piazza in Parramatta,” Mr Abrahamse said.

Visitors staying at Skye Hotel Suites will also have access to Parramatta’s highest bar.

Mr Sunito said “Skye Hotel Suites addresses the growing demand in Parramatta for short-term accommodation in high-quality apartments with resort-style facilities and city convenience”.

“Parramatta as Sydney’s second CBD is attracting more visitors than ever” he added.
