Rosebery is a suburb in transition, just 6km south of the Sydney CBD, well connected to public transport and ripe for redevelopment.
Many of the old industrial buildings and commercial warehouses are being demolished and replaced by attractive-looking apartment complexes. The latest of these is Astor by LIVstyle, a boutique developer who has achieved great success with its other Rosebery projects, Verde and The Parker Residences.
Astor is within 600 metres of the entrance to the Eastern Distributor which provides direct links to the CBD, the Eastern Suburbs and the North Shore. Green Square Railway Station is within walking distance, and Sydney Airport is just a few minutes’ drive away.
Aaron Tippett, a Director of LIVstyle, regards Rosebery as a “social and cultural hotbed” undergoing extensive urban renewal.
At 105 apartments Astor is our largest project to date, which stems from our confidence in the growing popularity of Rosebery. With Darlinghurst and Surry Hills virtually moribund through road closures and parking hassles, Rosebery has the potential to offer a similar cosmopolitan lifestyle but with less congestion and at a much more affordable price.”
Astor comprises two seven level buildings, sited 23 metres apart, with a large central courtyard that will be landscaped with mature trees and have an outdoor kitchen for social gatherings, custom-designed seating, and areas for private relaxation.
Environa Studio has designed both buildings to be visually complementary, with vertical green walls and slots in the façade to create visible entry points. The 105 apartments at Astor range from one-bedroom to three-bedroom options, and include penthouses with large rooftop terraces and garden units that provide a natural connection to the outdoors.
“Most things you want are within walking distance, including restaurants, theatres, boutiques, galleries, and shopping facilities. Those who buy here will appreciate the benefits even more in years to come as Sydney becomes more crowded and properties close to the CBD grow out of the financial reach of most.”
