    Luxury living planned for Panthers site

    A new urban lifestyle village is coming to Penrith with ESQ 1818, the residential quarter of the Penrith Panthers’ Entertainment Precinct, receiving approval for stage one of its $500 million development. The development from Sydney developer CABE will feature 850 apartments plus retail, lake frontage, communal spaces and landscaped boulevards, nature walks and running tracks. CABE CEO Andrew James said it will be the first of its kind for western Sydney. “ESQ 1818 will become the residential quarter of the Penrith Panthers’ Entertainment Precinct,” he said. “East Side Quarter references the site location East of the Nepean River and East Side of the Lakefront and Penrith Panthers – creating an important lifestyle activation and connection into the town centre and Riverwalk Link. “The project will create a vibrant urban village on the door steps of the Penrith Panthers’ Entertainment hub.” Mr James said the new development would be of international standard. “ESQ 1818 will offer world class amenities, from the retail and lake frontage to the communal spaces, landscaped boulevards, nature walks and running tracks,” he said. Maintaining space between the buildings means views of the lake and Blue Mountains was essential for the development, with 50 per cent of the site allocated to landscaping, creating a green oasis for residents and the broader public. “The Blue Mountains is a Sydney icon,” Mr James said. “The natural attraction and fantastic backdrop is a direct visual connection to nature. It is our vision to create a village atmosphere bounded by parkland and landscaped boulevards. “Our landscape designers, Oculus, known for their work in both Barangaroo and the Central Park Development in Sydney, have been commissioned to realise this vision.” With one, two and three bedroom apartments on offer, the site will provide not only additional homes for the growing region, but a new vibrant and luxurious lifestyle currently missing from Penrith. “We believe space is the ultimate luxury,” Mr James said. “In addition to the amenities this project will deliver in the heart of Penrith’s entertainment precinct, we also have plans for a future eat street as well as resort-style living with wellness retreat, private club, dining and exclusive entertaining areas.” ESQ Stage One is scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2018.

    Apartments add chic option to downsizing

    Targeted specifically for buyers over 55, Watersedge in Sydney’s northern beaches proves that apartment living isn’t just for young first-home buyers. Alison Cheung reports Watersedge is the latest residential project released in Bayview, with property developer CABE setting its sights on the over-55s market. The development, at 2079 Pittwater Rd, will consist of four triplebedroom units and a penthouse. With only five dwellings in total, managing director of CABE Lou Zivanovic said Watersedge will provide an alternative to offerings for the over-55s market, which are typically higher in density. “Making the decision to downsize doesn’t mean that buyers have to compromise on size and design,” Mr Zivanovic said. “Watersedge is an opportunity to secure a beautifully appointed apartment home that still offers spacious living and entertaining areas.”

    New Homes: We look at three of the best waterside developments

    This state has some of the most beautiful waterways in the world so it’s no wonder developers are seeing their potential. Up on the northern beaches, developer CABE is tapping into the over-55s luxury housing market with a swish offering at Bayview, on the doorstep of Pittwater’s yachting and boating playground. The boutique project of five residences is also close to Mona Vale and Newport beaches and has walking tracks nearby, including to Church Point. Prices in the eco-friendly building, designed by Lesiuk Architects, start from a cool $2.5 million. Meanwhile in the southwest of the city, construction has begun on The Paper Mill in Liverpool, whose developers are promising to spark a new era of waterfront living for the area. Coronation Property has a vision of residents strolling and cycling along the Georges River boardwalk in what it says will become a “food, local produce and beverage” hub with community facilities and cultural pursuits. The first sod at the former industrial site was turned this month after a second wave of apartments was released for sale. Another centre undergoing gentrification is the city of Newcastle, which has had an overhaul of its waterfront areas in the last decade. Sydney developer Thirdi has launched its third development in the city, a two-tower apartment block just to the west of the CBD known as WestEnd. Future residents might spot former Australian cricket captain popping in the Newcastle CBD for holiday supplies – Clarke has recently snapped up a weekender in the Johnson Property Group’s Trinity Point development at Lake Macquarie, about 50 kilometres south of the former steel city. Watersedge, 2079 Pittwater Rd, Bayview Three-beds 279-313 square metres $2.5 million+ Penthouse 457 square metres $3.5 million Strata levies From $2204.33 a quarter Due for completion December 2016 Agent CABE, (02) 8818 3600; cabe.com.au Three of the five exclusive over-55s apartments at Watersedge have already sold – including the 260 square metre penthouse, which traded for $3.5 million after initial expectations of about $3.7 million. Watersedge has been designed by Lesiuk Architects, a firm known for its Balinese design bent and eco-friendly approach. The internal look and feel was crafted by SJB Interiors. The building will employ the power of nature, with plants cascading over the exterior to give residents greater privacy and help cool the interiors in summer. CABE development manager Joe Bevacqua expects the two remaining apartments to sell before Christmas. He says the business is interested in developing more small, premium projects “should the opportunities and zonings present themselves”. WestEnd, 3-13 Charles Street, Wickham One-beds 51-60 square metres $327,500+ Two-beds 68-75 square metres $481,500+ Three-beds 92 square metres $757,500+ Strata levies From $715 a quarter Due for completion 2017 Agent 02 9409 7200; westendnewcastle.com.au The gentrification of Newcastle’s former industrial areas is stepping up with several new apartments on the drawing board at Wickham, to the west of the CBD. One of those is WestEnd, a 126-apartment offering that will be housed in two buildings ranging from nine to 10 storeys high. Wickham will be given a boost by a proposed $75 million state-government transport interchange to be built in the suburb. It will allow commuters to switch between trains, light rail, buses, taxis and private cars. WestEnd will have the Newcastle CBD on one side and the harbour foreshore and the Hunter River mouth on the other. The apartments will be close to a walking trail that stretches along the foreshore to Nobbys Beach and lighthouse past a series of restaurants and cafes. The Paper Mill, 20 Shepherd Street, Liverpool One-beds 57-59 square metres $420,000+ Two-beds 77-96 square metres $542,500+ Three-beds 95-130 square metres $700,000+ Strata levies From $600 a quarter Due for completion 2017 Agent CPC Sales, 1800 78 33 22; www.liveatthepapermill.com.au AFTER selling out of apartments on the lower floors of The Paper Mill earlier this year, developer Coronation Property has recently released 88 apartments in its river-front Liverpool offering. The Woods Bagot-designed apartments are being built where one of Australia’s oldest and largest paper mills once operated. The design will blend re-purposed 19th-century heritage-protected industrial buildings with modern apartment towers. The Paper Mill is 650 metres from Liverpool station and has buses nearby. Construction of the 29-storey development began this month. The project has proved popular with buyers.  More than 500 apartments and two-level town homes have already been sold at the site, which incorporates The Paper Mill and The Bindery.
