(Sydney, Australia) Monday, November 17, 2014 – Australian property developer Crown Group has opened its new display suite ahead of the launch of Sydney by Crown this Saturday.
The Grand Opening of the Sydney by Crown Display Suite was marked with an invitation-only media event held at the display suite at Level 29, 1 Market Street, overlooking Darling Harbour and the Sydney by Crown building site today.
The new $250-million tower to be built at 161 Clarence Street, Sydney will begin sales with same-day launch events in Sydney, Jakarta and Singapore on Saturday, November 22.
The new Sydney by Crown display suite showcases the innovative, modern interiors within the landmark 220-apartment tower, set to be the only new apartment building in the central business district (CBD) to be launched before the end of the year.
Designed by internationally renowned Koichi Takada Architects and chosen from a selection of world-class designs during an international design competition, the 25-storey building will feature heritage-inspired lower levels transitioning to a modern glass-and-steel tower, capped with dozens of steel arches.
The unique arches will envelope the tower’s rooftop bar and garden, forming a striking addition to Sydney’s skyline.
Lower levels will include an eight-storey cathedral-like atrium rising 20 metres above street level over a new public laneway between Kent and Clarence Streets, joining historic Skittle Lane.
The tower will be within walking distance to Sydney’s new waterfront precinct at Barangaroo, new Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, Wynyard station and Darling Harbour.
Construction is scheduled for completion in late 2017.
Crown Group CEO Iwan Sunito said Sydney by Crown would become one of Sydney’s architectural centerpieces and a globally recognized icon.
Sydney by Crown will also be home to a collection of Crown Suites.
“Sydney by Crown draws on Crown Group’s 18 years’ experience developing some of the most prestigious and award-winning projects in Sydney. We had clear vision to create a building to reflect the international, forward-thinking nature of Sydney,” Mr Sunito said.
“The launch of Sydney by Crown is an important milestone for Crown Group as we continue to experience solid growth both locally and overseas.”
“Sydney by Crown has already proved popular in Australia and internationally and we anticipate a strong result this weekend,” he said.
“Sydney by Crown will be unlike anything seen before in Sydney.”
Crown Group was flooded with enquiries after Sydney by Crown registrations of interest opened earlier this year and now has received hundreds of expression of interest deposits ahead of this weekend’s launch.
The final apartment at Crown Group’s multi-award-winning, seven-tower development Top Ryde City Living was sold last week.
Crown Group has received a host of awards in recent years including UDIA NSW Concept Design Award 2013 and 2014, UDIA High Density Development award 2013, UDIA NSW President’s award 2013 and a Master Builders Association Excellence in Housing Award 2013.
At ground level residents will have access to health and fitness facilities including a pool and gymnasium.
Sydney by Crown’s spectacular rooftop will include water features, greenery and a rooftop bar open to residents and guests.
Launched last year with an impressive $100 million worth of apartments sold within the first week, Crown Group’s North Sydney project, Skye by Crown, features an infinity-edge rooftop pool, top-floor gym and indoor/outdoor common area.
After a string of successful residential projects in Sydney since it formed 18 years ago, Crown Group has established a solid reputation around the world for its resort-style amenities and aftersales service.
