Mirvac Group and
UrbanGrowth NSW today revealed the latest residential offering, Ovo, at Green Square Town Centre in Sydney.
Featuring 224 luxury apartments, Ovo represents special significance as Green Square Town Centre’s tallest tower, occupying a prominent location at 956-960 Bourke Street and setting the tone for the new precinct.
Ovo’s distinctive design, from award winning architecture practice Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (FJMT), features a unique, ellipsoid shaped tower that maximises views of the city and surrounds.
Mirvac’s Development Director, Paolo Razza, said the launch of Ovo had been brought forward due to unprecedented demand from buyers looking to own a piece of the Green Square vision and lifestyle.
“Due to the successful sell-out of Green Square’s first two buildings, Ebsworth and No. 8 Ebsworth, we have fast tracked the launch of Ovo, and if last November and December is anything to go by, we are anticipating an enthusiastic reception from the market.”
“Ovo benefits from Mirvac’s 40 years of experience and expertise in creating exceptional living environments. The apartments will feature world-leading design principles, while the location at the very heart of the new Green Square Town Centre retail precinct offers a range of amenity."
"The building itself, with its glazed façade and prominence, will become an important part of the new public domain. It will be a sleek and sophisticated addition to Green Square,” Mr Razza said.
Richard Francis-Jones, Design Director at FJMT, said Ovo is set to become a distinguishing landmark in the Green Square precinct.
“The distinctive ellipsoid form and podium of the Ovo tower will open up the corners of the Green Square site, maximising views and cross ventilation far more than a traditional, rectangular-shaped building. A series of coloured panels across the façade will play with scale, blurring the distinction between levels and creating the appearance of the building as a single form – it will truly be an impressive site to behold,” Mr Francis-Jones said.
“The building will be oriented to the north, ideal for city views, and will elevate the perception of Green Square.”
Ovo is the second apartment building to be delivered by Mirvac in the Green Square Town Centre with UrbanGrowth NSW.
Construction is set to begin in the second half of 2015, with expected completion by early 2018.
