Qantas Magazine Interview with James Swete, Starryland Sales & Marketing Director

What were the inspirations behind the Promenade project?
“It’s very designer-focused. We have used a natural palette and incorporated timeless finishes such as stone benchtops, mirrored splashbacks
and bronze framing that fit in well with the appliances.”

Why did you choose Bosch kitchen appliances?
“We’re promoting luxury resort-style living so we were looking for a number of things in the appliances to fit that; the first being quality – and that’s one of the main reasons we chose Bosch. Other important factors were reliability and energy efficiency, which are demonstrated in
the performance of its products. Then there’s the design; Bosch appliances have a timeless and contemporary look that works beautifully with our interiors. We used Bosch’s four-function electric wall oven, the four-burner gas cooktop and the two-speed range hood. The first stage of the development is complete and all of our purchasers have been extremely happy with their Bosch appliances.”

How much work goes into details such as selecting which appliances to use in a project like this?
“We spend a considerable amount of time making sure we get it right and that it matches what the target market is looking for. The quality of the project, as well as our quality as a developer, is reflected in the appliance brands we use.”

Promenade’s Proximity Priority For Buyers

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.
