The Centennial Collection: sets new benchmark in luxury apartment living in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs
As reported by Ken Stanley | Full story here
Private rooftop swimming pools, bedroom fireplaces, wet bars, full-size wine fridges and butler’s pantries are just some of the distinguishing features which raise the bar on luxury in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs at the soon to be launched, The Centennial Collection by Stargate Property Group.
Situated in an iconic gateway location overlooking Centennial Park and moments’ walk to Woollahra’s famous Queen Street, The Centennial Collection is proudly being delivered by local developer Stargate. Stargate has developed more than 20 residential buildings, delivered with exceptional quality.
A boutique two tower development, both at 10 storeys in height, The Centennial Collection boasts 270-degree panoramic harbour, city skyline and parkside views, setting a new benchmark for luxury apartment living in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
Having undertaken a design competition between multiple top tier firms, award-winning architects, SJB, were successful in winning Waverley Councils’ first design excellence competition. The developer received development approval in August 2022.
SJB, Design Director Adam Haddow conceived the development’s artisan architecture while SJB’s renowned Senior Associate Victoria Judge designed the exquisite, European-inspired interiors.
Adam Haddow describes his design vision for the precinct:
“On one of Sydney’s highest points, the buildings have this beautiful sense of elevation right at the edge of the city. Their sculptural organic form feels timeless, reminiscent of rocks worn down over millennia.
“In the residences themselves, the architecture and interiors are seamless. We have these amazing, highly-tailored, house-like environments; each residence with two or three edges to enhance the outdoor relationship.”
Victoria Judge describes her design intent for the refined luxury interiors:
“Sited as castles high on a hill, the residences are luxurious with a high level of amenity. Envisioned as comfortable, liveable, house-like apartments featuring separate entry vestibules, wide, generous living areas with fireplaces, bedrooms with ample wardrobes and luxurious marble bathrooms, full room-sized laundries, and lots of natural light and airflow, they provide an elevated apartment living experience.
Finishes are opulent and refined; generously detailed stonemasonry features softened edges and double bullnose trims, timber veneer joinery features curved corners and bold pediments that together bring an air of traditional monumentality. Large format stone flooring in elegant creamy white is complimented by custom chequerboard timber parquetry and silky carpets. We wanted to give the spaces enduring qualities so people can still enjoy them in 10, 15, 20 years’ time.”
Ray White Projects Partner, Marcello Bo said: “There is nothing like this level of luxury in this enclave of the Eastern Suburbs. Stargate is unequivocally raising the bar on luxury apartment living with this exquisite collection of extraordinary, house-sized residences. Not a stone has been left unturned in the range of elevated finishes and inclusions being offered.”
Delivering the wow factor in spades, the project will feature opulent penthouses, with rooftop swimming pools and terraces which capture spectacular-harbour as well as parkside views over Centennial Park. Communal facilities in the building will include a rooftop pool with outdoor dining and entertaining spaces and an indoor winter pool. Other luxe facilities include a concierge, cold and dry goods delivery rooms and a wellness hub including a cardio and personal training area. Dedicated secure parking ensures hassle-free commutes. The building will also have EV charging stations and storage for all residences.
The project is set to get underway mid in 2023 and is earmarked for completion by the end of 2025.
