Australian contractor Probuild has been appointed to construct the $300 million prestige mixed-use project, Omnia in Potts Point, after signing a contract with Greenland AustraliaLocated on the iconic intersection of Darlinghurst Road and Victoria Street, Potts Point, Omnia will include 135 high-end apartments and will eventually be home to around 250 residents.
Greenland Australia Managing Director Sherwood Luo said Potts Point offers the ultimate East Sydney lifestyle, thanks in large to its city fringe location that helps it to maintain a sophisticated urban inner city atmosphere.
“With Omnia’s unique design and prime corner position it’s bound to become a real focal point in the area, and the distinctive building will become the gateway of Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Luxury will soon have a new address, with construction set to start shortly," he said.
“It’s great to have Probuild on board again with this landmark project. It’s a challenging job, but our project teams will successfully manage this together."Probuild NSW Managing Director Arthur Williams said the build will add to Probuild’s growing number of high-profile projects in NSW.
Omnia will feature an hour-glass-like façade, making a dramatic architectural statement on the prominent corner site.
The 19-storey building's residential aspect will also be accompanied by two levels of retail and a proposed top-tier restaurant.
A Woolworths store will take the entire second storey with other smaller speciality retail options on the third floor of the complex.
Greenland Australia expressed hopes that Omnia will be one of the most exclusive inner-city addresses in Sydney, incorporating quality amenity and design with "world-leading architectural design and immaculate interiors".
Omnia will also include a number of communal facilities including a landscaped outdoor BBQ area, community garden and residents’ private wine room and lounge.
Omnia will be another project to add to Probuild's current $5 billion pipeline, which includes another Greenland Australia development - Sydney’s tallest apartment tower, the 235-metre Greenland Centre on Bathurst Street.
