Residents of Avantra, the Longton Property Group’s $300 million smart-apartment project in Sydney’s Mascot, have a fresh lifestyle addition.  

Woolworths, BWS, Priceline and a host of other leading retail brands will be a short walk, with Meriton recently unveiling its $250 million Mascot Central project.

The 5,000 sqm development will have around 20 shops with a mix of retail, cafes and convenience stores that include a full-line Woolworths supermarket, Oliver Brown, boutique florist with a café, Destination Roll -- best known for its pork rolls -- and Camy’s Charcoal Chicken.

The Mascot Central Retail Precinct is Meriton’s largest retail development to date, says a post on Meriton's website.

The retail precinct is expected to add to the appeal of the 328-apartment Avantra project by Sydney-based developer Longton.

Spread over a 8,762 square metre site Avantra comprises two multi-storey buildings, including ground floor retail and a courtyard garden.

The internal size of studios in Avantra are 60m² to 61m², one-bedroom plus MPR units are 75 m² to 82m², two-bedroom plus MPR units are 100m² to 127m² while three-bedroom plus MPR unit is 154 m². 

In addition, there will be communal areas such as a shared rooftop area in which residents can swim, barbeque and interact. 

Construction is in full swing and residents are expected to move in by December 2017.

In line with the developer's focus on community and home automation, Avantra residents will have their own information sharing network and a unique iButler service that aims to reduce shopping, car wash, pet care etc to a few clicks on a smart device. 

Residents will be able to use their provided iPads and other personal devices to book services simply by entering their postcode from any location and choosing the desired service.

It also including ‘smart’ digital lockers that residents can use to receive home delivered goods.

The information network, iCommunity will provide updates on news, weather and finance. 

The complex has been designed by architects MD+A and interior designer Archer + Wright.

Mascot had a population of 8,514 people, according to ABS census data 2011. Apartments made up 34.4 percent of the total dwelling composition in the area, the data showed.
