Home-buyers will have their last chance to purchase an apartment in one of Australia’s most vibrant inner city neighbourhoods with the launch of Lendlease’s final release at Darling Square.
The first two residential releases sold out within hours and equally strong interest is expected in this launch in the lead up to the official sales day on 28th May.
Jonathan Emery, managing director, Urban Regeneration, Lendlease, said, “Darling Square provides the first opportunity for people to live in Darling Harbour and we are thrilled to set a benchmark for the new Australian dream of inner city living. People want to live in a cosmopolitan neighbourhood that offers both convenience and community spirit. Darling Square delivers all that and more, with everything on your doorstep.
"Darling Square is really well located, achieving a 100% walkability score because of its convenient access to public transport, jobs and amenities. This is a hugely appealing prospect for a range of buyers from young professionals all the way through to families, who want to avoid the hassle of long commutes to the city and instead use that time more enjoyably.”
Architects Francis Jones Morehen Thorp designed the 391 apartments in the spacious and naturistic setting which will be developed and constructed by Lendlease. The concept promotes an active lifestyle and a friendly environment where residents can mingle. There will be a heated swimming pool, outdoor gym equipment, secluded seating areas, two barbecues under a covered pergola and grassed open space. There will also be a variety of retail outlets including artisan bakers and coffee shops, and services such as hairdressers.
At the heart of Darling Square will be Sydney’s new icon, the Kengo Kuma designed civic building which is proposed to house a new City of Sydney library with an Innovation Exchange to support creative and technology startups.
