Developer Fridcorp will deliver a visionary masterplan to Hurstville with its $700 million BEYOND project, creating a new precinct for the area where sculptural towers will rise above a vibrant retail plaza.

Designed by architecture firm DKO Architecture with interiors by Woods Bagot and landscaping by Openwork, BEYOND will form a mini-urban village in the lively and evolving suburb of Hurstville. Located at 93 Forest Road, BEYOND will comprise a mix of 556 one, two and three bedroom apartments across four sculptural buildings that vary from eight to twenty levels across the 13,927 square metre site.

One bedroom apartments range from 50 to 61 square metres and are priced from $565,000 - $825,000. Two bedroom apartments range from 75 to 92 square metres and are priced from $840,000 to $1,140,000. Three bedrooms range from 95 to 107 square metres and are priced from $1,225,000 to $1,675,000. All floor plan square metre ranges exclude balconies.

BEYOND will provide residents and the local community with a 5,000 square metre landscaped retail plaza that will create a sense of place, as well as a connection to the neighbouring Kempt Field Park via walkways lined with lush plantings. The new retail plaza, which will be a contemporary interpretation on an urban laneway, will link the existing retail plaza to steps that lead down to Kempt Field, creating direct access to the Allawah train station.

Anchored by a 3,500 square metre Woolworths supermarket, the BEYOND retail precinct will comprise a further 1,000 square metres of specialty retail, cafes and restaurants, welcoming activity from dawn til dusk.

Fridcorp is excited to offer buyers thoughtfully designed apartments with immediate access to incredible amenity, which will help drive the evolution of Hurstville,” says Paul Fridman, founder and director of Fridcorp. “The success of our Eve project in Erskineville demonstrated that there is an appetite for our quality designed product in Sydney that appeals to a sophisticated audience.”

DKO has designed the buildings with soft curves to create a beautiful sculptural element for the Hurstville skyline. Façades consist of precast bronze glazing and metal cladding with filigreed balustrades lining balconies. Textural brickwork at the base of the two lower buildings draws from the site’s history as a quarry.

“BEYOND will bring a fresh and sophisticated urban precinct to Hurstville,” says Nicholas Byrne, director at DKO Architecture and the project’s lead architect. “It will also provide apartments with high amenity that respond to the site’s opportunities, such as light-filled interiors and spectacular north-eastern views toward Sydney’s CBD, southern views toward Botany Bay, and eastern views toward Kempt Field.”

Featuring resident-only communal areas on the second level on two of the buildings, BEYOND offers more than 4,000 square metres of recreational space that includes facilities for yoga, badminton and reading pods, as well as barbeque and dining areas.

Woods Bagot has designed BEYOND’s apartment interiors with wide frontages and full-height glazing, providing residents with expansive views, as well as open plan living, dining and kitchen areas catering to the relaxed Sydney lifestyle.

“These apartments give buyers the opportunity to live in a considered, designed space with thoughtful and elegant interiors and great views,” says Jacqui Senior, senior interior designer at Woods Bagot. “The potential for the area is enormous and BEYOND will definitely be a one-of-a-kind place for Hurstville.”

The inspiration for the interior design was gold and navy. Whilst navy is a traditional palette it has been interpreted in a contemporary way, with white walls and custom navy joinery embellished with brushed brass fittings throughout apartments for the dark colour scheme. A light colour scheme of pale grey and white is also available.

All apartments feature lime-washed timber floors and pale grey carpet. A custom television cabinet is available as an additional joinery option, offering extra storage while maintaining a coherent look.

The kitchens feature Smeg appliances and gas stove tops with buyers able to select from three different benchtops materials: composite stone, white marble and a grey marble with contrast veining, which curve up the wall, forming the splashback.

Meticulous details and refined materials define BEYOND’s understated and elegant bathrooms. Large format tiles will line the floors and walls and mosaic feature tiles in either navy or pale grey will compose the feature vanity wall. The bathrooms are appointed with custom oval sinks, brushed gold finish tapware and elegant curved edge mirrored cabinets.

A truly connected suburb, BEYOND residents will benefit from Hurstville’s close proximity to Sydney’s CBD which is only twenty minutes by train. Sydney’s T4 Line runs to Hurstville with both the Hurstville and Allawah stops within walking distance of BEYOND. Westfield Hurstville, as well as a myriad of shops, restaurants, schools and recreation facilities, are all on offer in the vibrant community of Hurstville.

BEYOND will have 600 resident car parks, 80 visitor parking spaces and 200 retail parking spaces.

Fridcorp opens its BEYOND display suite and will accept registrations of interest from 1 October 2016, with the project officially launching on 22 October. Construction is expected to commence in August 2017 and is due for completion in July 2019.

Fridcorp has approximately $1.5 billion of apartments under development, with further projects including Brisbane, South Yarra and North Melbourne in progress, which will introduce an additional 1,700 apartments to the Australian market this year. Fridcorp’s first Sydney-based project Eve in Erskineville sold $100 million in stock within two hours of launching in May 2014.
