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

21.12.17

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

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

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.

    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.”

    ESQ 1818 Penrith gets the go ahead for stage 1

    Award winning Sydney developer, CABE has just received DA approval for Stage 1 of its $500M ESQ 1818 (East Side Quarter) mixed-use development in Sydney’s Penrith. The 850-apartment master-planned development designed by the award-winning Turner Architects will feature retail, lake frontage, communal spaces and landscaped boulevards, nature walks and running tracks. Maintaining space between the buildings means views of the lake and Blue Mountains will never be built out. 50% of the site has also been allocated to landscaping, creating a green oasis for residents and the broader public. “We believe space is the ultimate luxury,” says CABE CEO, Andrew James. “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. This will be the first of its kind for Western Sydney.” “Our plans for this site meet the State Government’s vision to provide high-quality attainable housing with an array of amenities and employment opportunities near transport corridors,” he adds. “We’re looking forward to working closely with Penrith Council, community and all the precinct’s stakeholders to deliver this unparalleled mixed-use destination for Sydney’s booming West.” ESQ Stage 1 is scheduled to launch 2nd Quarter 2018.
