Indonesian Born Entrepreneur to Create a Modern Village

Set to regenerate the neighbourhood and create a vibrant new urban hub, Eastlakes Live will comprise luxury apartments ranging from one-bedroom to penthouses across seven buildings and retail outlets within a new restaurant and retail precinct; offering residents and neighbours a diverse range of spaces and experiences for interaction or escape.

Located in the Bayside Local Government area, encompassing Botany and Mascot and close to the Green Square and Alexandria areas, Eastlakes has a population of 6920.

In 2016 the Eastlakes-Mascot area was the fifth fastest growing region of NSW, growing by 7.9% or 1904 people to a total of 26 099 in the 12 months to June 30 2016.

The residences will be situated atop the Eastlakes Town Centre, a new restaurant and retail precinct offering residents and neighbors a diverse range of spaces and experiences for interaction or escape. The new Town Centre will be designed as a modern urban sanctuary that sets a benchmark for retail excellence with major supermarkets, fresh food offerings, a restaurant promenade, street cafes, and a medical centre as well as densely landscaped gardens.

The new development draws on the success of Crown Group’s multi-award-winning Top Ryde City Living project which successfully integrated 653 residential apartments and resort-style amenities within seven towers above a modern shopping centre.
“We are pleased to be able to showcase Eastlakes Live to the public for the first time,” Crown Group Chairman and Group CEO Iwan Sunito said.

“This development is designed to create a new entertainment and lifestyle precinct for Sydney.”

“These new images give life to our concept of creating a thriving and modern urban village – anchored by a residential component and filled with dynamic retail, entertainment and outdoor recreation opportunities,” Mr Sunito said.

There are four golf courses within 6 kilometres of the development; The Australian Golf course, Moore Park Golf Course, The Lakes Golf Course and Botany Golf Course

Crown Group Sales Director Roy Marcellus said the design of Eastlakes Live responded to need for a revitalised Eastlakes Town Centre.

“Crown Group is at the forefront of creating dynamic urban areas integrated with residential apartments demonstrated in our popular project Top Ryde City Living.

“Eastlakes Live has been designed to be a fully-integrated village, with the convenience of being just 8km from the CBD,” Mr Marcellus said.

“We’ve already had a large number of enquiries for people eager to know more about Eastlakes Live, even before the commencement of our official marketing campaign which kicks off this week,” Mr Marcellus said.

“There is excitement about this new development for Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and we look forward to revealing even more images of Eastlakes Live at a special event in May.

“Eastlakes Live presents Sydneysiders with a rare opportunity to live above a brand new shopping centre,” Mr Marcellus added.

Images released today reveal a design that is inspired by the concept of “bringing together the best of town and country,” envisioned by Richard Francis-Jones, principal of fjmt. With a location in the heart of a swath of greenery – the Eastlakes Golf Course to the southeast and the Eastlakes Reserve to the west – the new images depict a modern sanctuary for Sydney’s Eastern suburbs.
fjmt’s designs have been awarded some of the industry’s most prestigious awards including; UDIA NSW’s award for Excellence in High Density Development for the fjmt-designed Anadara, Baranagaroo, the City of Sydney Lord Mayor’s Prize for Liberty Place in Sydney, and the NSW Master Builders Award for ‘Public Building’ for The Waterfront Pavilion.

“The new concept for Eastlakes needed to be sympathetic to the local character and yet also create a new and exciting integration of landscape and architecture,” explained Mr Francis-Jones.

“We expect the development to be embraced by the broader Sydney community and become a leisure, food and shopping destination in its own right,”

“The diversity of the local community will be reinforced and re-energised by new arrivals to a much enriched and enlivened Eastlakes Shopping Centre.”

Crown Group will begin sales the first stage of Eastlakes Live in June 2018, including 134 apartments luxury apartments ranging from one-bedroom apartments to penthouses and 12 retail outlets. Stage two of Eastlakes Live will include a mix of residential and retail components, completing the modern new town centre.

Construction of the first stage is scheduled for completion in 2020. (EKA)
