Beach for Sydney's West

Wednesday, 15th September 2010

A sandy-bottom 'beach' that captures the feel of a tropical getaway will be the stunning centrepiece of the latest stage of The Waterfront, a vibrant community enjoying a fun-filled resort atmosphere at Wentworth Point.

After taking a dip in the azure water, swimmers can laze on sun lounges, spread a towel on glistening white sand, relax on manicured grass or retreat to the shade of the gently swaying palms. Designer gazebos, timber decks, covered pergolas and recreational pavilions will provide ample space for families and groups to gather, while contemporary outdoor kitchens, private showers and dressing chambers will encourage casual meals after a day spent by the pool. From dusk, stunning lighting will transform the ‘beach’ and the surrounding landscaping into a mesmerising aquatic attraction befitting a five-star travel destination. The ‘beach’ will be for the exclusive use of residents at The Waterfront, which has evolved over the past decade on the western shore of Homebush Bay. The socially-sustainable and environmentally—friendly residential showcase is being developed by Sekisui House, Japan's largest home builder. The ‘beach’ will add to the resort-style facilities already at The Waterfront, which includes five swimming pools, a fully-staffed gymnasium, two tennis courts, a day spa, function centre, four restaurants/cafes, convenience store, delicatessen, bakery, bottle shop, gelateria, medical centre, hairdresser and library. The Waterfront also has its own integrated communication system called Homelinx, which provides access to broadband and pay television. The ‘beach’ will be created as part of Messina - the third apartment stage released at The Waterfront in the past 12 months. Corsica (215 apartments) and Catania (301 apartments) were rushed by purchasers, and Messina is sure to prove just as popular. The 162 apartments in Messina offer a range of floorplans, with one-bedrooms starting around $400,000, and two-bedrooms from around $550,000. With the State Government waiving stamp duty for off-the-plan apartments under $600,000, Messina’s appeal is further enhanced. Architects Robertson + Marks are using pergolas, sunhoods, balustrades and external shutters in powder-coated aluminium, set off against facades combining face bricks with rendered and painted masonry, to add refinement and visual interest to Messina. The facades and forms are articulated with setbacks, voids and penetrations to create contrasts of light and shade. The interior design ensures good light and natural cross-flow ventilation in most apartments. Living areas and bedrooms are arranged to balance privacy and solar access, and flow onto terrace areas, blurring the distinction between inside and out. Quality touches include tiled entries, recessed lighting, high-grade carpets, and built-in wardrobes in bedrooms. Kitchens have stone benchtops, ceramic tile splashbacks, polyurethane cupboards, stainless steel appliances from Omega, and polished chrome tapware. Bathrooms and ensuites have vanities with stone benchtops, recessed basins, a semi-framed shower screen and polished chrome taps. Intelligent lighting and access to all communications facilities - including broadband and pay television - are incorporated into the building’s services. All apartments come with one or two security parking spaces and storage cages, and the full-security complex is accessible by swipe card. The Waterfront has proven an overwhelming success, with around 2,500 residents and a vacancy rate of less than 1%, making it Sydney’s most in-demand estates. At its heart is The Piazza, where residents socialise and enjoy special events such as jazz concerts, food festivals and wine tastings. The Waterfront has access to the Sydney Olympic Park Ferry Wharf, which provides services to the city and Parramatta. Trains at the nearby Olympic Park Station and Strathfield Station are part of the Sydney network and run frequently, as do Sydney bus services. Just outside the palm-fringed entrance to The Waterfront is the 480-hectare Millennium Parklands - the largest park in Sydney - and more than 40 kilometres of cycle paths and walkways to explore. “Accommodation at Wentworth Point will continue to be strong, particularly as the adjoining Sydney Olympic Park is earmarked to become a major commercial centre catering for approximately 48,000 employees,” said the Managing Director of CBRE Residential Projects, David Milton. The Waterfront, at 21 Bennelong Parkway, Wentworth Point, is open daily from 10am to 4pm. Information is available by calling 1800 333 818 or through the web site:
