Parramatta Promenade bucks trend with 74% owner occupier interest

Despite off the plan apartments increasingly attracting investor attention, from both Australian and offshore buyers, Parramatta’s Promenade has seen 74% of its current early buyers identify as owner occupiers.

The five-hectare waterfront development is on Parramatta’s northern bank, and of those providing a registration of interest deposit – $3,000 – the majority are looking to live in the Promenade development.

Irene Lau, a director of Savills Residential project marketing, said that it’s due to the focus on lifestyle from Starryland Australia developers.

“People appreciate that Promenade will provide a healthy lifestyle in which to raise their family, especially given its close proximity to quality schools, universities and hospitals,” she said.

“Promenade will also have expansive lush landscaping, tree-lined streets and a central square.”

It will include 1.2 hectares of landscaped foreshore open space.

The 12-storey building three hits the market on 2 August, offering 153 apartments.

Starryland Australia was established by the 23rd largest publicly-listed company in China, Fuxing Huiyu Real Estate Co Ltd. Promenade will be across 11 towers and 774 apartments in a $550 million project, and Starryland’s first foray into Australia.

Starryland Australia reveals the latest of the ‘Promenade’ development

The third building in the Promenade residential development in Parramatta has just been released by Starryland Australia and has an end value of approximately $550 million.

The new 12-storey building will contain 153 apartments on the northern bank of the Parramatta River, just minutes from the Parramatta city centre. Parramatta has now been rated Sydney’s most liveable city by the Urban Development Institute. It is expected to attract the same level of feverish excitement as did Promenade‘s first two buildings (124 apartments) which sold out on the launch weekend in May 2014, with the majority of apartments selling in just hours. Both of these buildings are now under construction with completion in late 2016.

Building Three is expected to attract a lot of young couples or business professionals making their first property purchase as the area provides a healthy lifestyle in which to raise their family, close to quality schools, transport links, restaurants and cafes, shopping centres, recreational facilities, universities and hospitals. Parramatta is a city of its own.

The apartments will also feature high ceilings and spacious balconies and courtyards with glass balustrades to maximise views of the river and the Parramatta CBD. Kitchens feature stone island benches with high level finishes which include accents of bronze or copper mirrors throughout both the bathrooms and kitchens.

On completion Promenade will have 1.2 hectares of resort-style landscaped foreshore open space, a pedestrian bridge across the river and an extensive walking and cycling network.

Apartments in Building Three comprise of:

  • 6 x one-bedrooms (44.2 – 49.4 sqm)
  • 17 x one-bedrooms plus study (46.7 – 69.9 sqm)
  • 125 x two-bedrooms (63.1 – 98.8 sqm)
  • 5 x three-bedrooms (83.8 – 112.4 sqm)

The apartments have one or two security car spaces, while there are 70 visitor parking spots allocated for the development.

Starryland Australia has built a display centre at 1/28 Macquarie Street, Parramatta which features a full kitchen, bathroom and living area to showcase the quality of the interiors designed by architects, Smart Design Studio.

Overall Promenade is an extensive addition to Parramatta’s growing skyline and is a landmark development for Western Sydney.

Parramatta’s tower race

Here is the first look at the third building released by Chinese property giant Starryland Australia.

Parramatta’s building boom is in full swing with Chinese property giant Fuxing Huiyu Real Estate unveiling the third building in their 774-apartment development.

The company’s Australian offshoot, Starryland Australia, only purchased the five hectare site on the Parramatta River nine months ago and already they’ve started construction of the first two buildings – both of which sold out within hours of the launch in May.

The first two buildings comprising 124 apartments will be complete by late 2016.

The firm is known for building mega-communities in China’s second-tier city of Wuhan, selling as many as 1000 apartments a day.

Just east of the Parramatta CBD, Promenade is their first foray into the Australian market but have flagged further expansion plans.

The third building will contain 153 apartments with one-bedroom apartments starting at $440,000, two-bedders from $585,000 and three-bedroom apartments from $850,000.

Building three will comprise one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments ranging from $440,000-$850,000.

Selling agent Irene Lau from Savills Residential Projects said “there were a lot of young couples making their first property purchase”, an increasingly difficult feat in the Sydney property market.

Ms Lau previously noted that there was also considerable interest from the parents of children who were in Australia studying.

When complete the $550 million development will include 1.2 hectares of foreshore parkland and a new pedestrian bridge across the river.

Developers have swoopped on Parramatta with 33 major projects in the pipeline worth an estimated $8 billion. If the current pace continues Parramatta could overtake Adelaide as Australia’s fifth-largest CBD.

Parramatta lord mayor John Chedid described Promenade as “a welcome addition to our expanding skyline”, which would bring more residents into the CBD and modernise the riverfront.
