Astute Property will soon launch their latest residential development, Kindred, in Marrickville.
Located seven kilometres from Sydney’s CBD and designed by local architects Benson McCormack, the two buildings house a selection of 39 one and two bedroom apartments under a metallic mansard roof that references the church spire next door.
CBRE Director Colin Griffin said Kindred was likely to attract investors, young couples and local downsizers.
"Investors see Marrickville as a real growth opportunity given the proximity to the CBD, transport options, great schools, all within a vibrant village community.
"Much like the booming interest and price escalation in Surry Hills, Marrickville has all the ingredients to be the next ‘growth’ suburb,” Mr Griffin said.
Astute Property has worked closely with the architects to ensure apartments are generously proportioned and will ultimately cater to the downsizer buyer. The homes demonstrate a thorough grasp of the modern lifestyle – each floor only houses four apartments in order to boost the feeling of separation and space.
The interiors contain timber floors, high ceilings and open layouts, which offer study nooks or separate study rooms, ducted air-conditioning and secure parking.
Buyers can select from two light and dark palettes – and choose to combine chrome or matte black tap ware with white marble or slate grey quartz stone and oak timber-look cabinetry in chalky beige and dark silvery grey textural tones.
Communal spaces include a central courtyard that residents can use as their private green sanctuary for alfresco dining, barbecues or "quiet contemplation".
Just steps to the heart of Marrickville’s village lifestyle retail hub and the train station, the suburb also has numerous bus and cycle routes taking travellers to Newtown, Bondi Junction, the CBD, airport and beyond. Soon the new rapid-ride Sydney Metro line will make travel even easier by linking to the new city harbour at Barangaroo.
Astute Property will launch Kindred on 29 July 2017. Construction will commence in April 2018 with completion expected June 2019.
