Mirvac has returned to one of its favourite stamping grounds with the launch of Pavilions at Sydney Olympic Park.
Pavilions will be Mirvac’s third major development in the Olympic precinct having made its mark at Newington, which was originally created to serve the needs of 15,000 athletes at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.
The proposed 422 apartments, designed by multi-award winning architects BVN, are arranged in four buildings, ranging from five to 15 storeys encircling approximately 4,000 square metres of gardens, with a planned retail component to include a supermarket.
At the corner of Figtree Drive and Australia Avenue, Pavilions is located within the Central precinct, part of the Sydney Olympic Park Master Plan 2030 which sets out the vision for Sydney Olympic Park to become a vibrant town in its own right, home to 14,000 residents and more than 31,000 workers.
Mirvac’s Head of Residential, John Carfi, said the development of Pavilions and the fulfilment of the Master Plan 2030 vision were important elements in the wider strategy to make Sydney a more liveable city.
“Here we have all the essential ingredients for connected 21st century living already in place,” said Mr Carfi.
“We are 500 metres from Bicentennial Park, one of Sydney’s biggest parklands, there is a train that departs every 10 minutes, commercial offices, restaurants and cafes are well-established and the quality of the sporting and leisure facilities speak for themselves.
“It’s a place that is well known in Sydney and around the world, as the home of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games and a destination for major events. However that is only one part of the story and we will be seeing a more diverse picture emerge as people come to realise its potential as a place to live and work.”
Located 14 kilometres from the Sydney CBD, Pavilions has the further advantage of proximity to Parramatta and the scientific and technology corridor linking North Ryde, Macquarie Park and Macquarie University.
