PROXIMITY to work opportunities was one of the factors that encouraged Cameron Trevor and partner Lauren Rountree to buy a new home in Parramatta, rather than Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
Mr Trevor, who works at an insurance office in the Parramatta CBD, said the couple purchased a one-bedroom unit in Starryland’s Promenade development because they wanted their home to be a good future investment, not just a convenient place to live.
“We were originally looking in places like Maroubra, but you get more of a sense in Parramatta that you’re in the middle of Sydney,” Mr Trevor said.
“The public transport is really good and a lot of new businesses are coming into the area. There’s a real CBD feel to it now. I think people will want to keep living here, so it will be a good place to own property.” The property’s location on the banks of the Parramatta River was another plus, he said.
“We really liked the building. It’s 12 storeys high and in a slightly quieter location.” The final stage of the Promenade project was recently released to the market. The apartments will be completed in 2018.
