Harry Triguboff’s Meriton group has launched the first stage of its Sydney Olympic Park residential development The Retreat.

The development will feature more than 1200 apartments.

The Retreat is being built on a 5.17 hectare site at 5 Carter Street bought from the Goodman Group for $245 million two years ago.

The first stage will have two elliptical buildings. The North tower will be 22-storeys high and feature split-level loft-style designs, apartments with rooftop entertaining and barbecue areas and penthouses with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Harry Triguboff said The Retreat, being developed opposite the ANZ Stadium, is all about green open space, recreation and leisure.

“The Sydney Olympic Park precinct is a very exciting area and we are offering you an opportunity to purchase in the first release before we develop all four stages," he said.

“We have made sure at The Retreat that we provide residents with apartments, resort facilities, shops, a 113-place child-care centre and serviced apartments that complement and add to those attributes.

“We expect to finish the site in the next five years and once completed, we believe prices will rise considerably.

“The Sydney Olympic Park precinct is an idyllic choice for anyone wanting to escape the fast pace of life and more congested living of the city’s heart.”

James Sialepis, Meriton’s director sales, said The Retreat would be ‘in tune’ with the green atmosphere of the Sydney Olympic Park area and a perfect choice for new home buyers.

“The Retreat will have an extensively turfed 2500 square metre central park, with walking and cycling pathways," he said.

“On the third floor of stage one there will be podium gardens where residents will be able to barbecue, dine under cover, or just soak up the views.

“We’ve almost been caught off guard by the demand we’re experiencing for our projects with landscaped gardens and parklands, especially from families and first home buyers, in areas like Lewisham and Sydney Olympic Park.

“The Retreat will be the same and first home buyers will be chasing the great launch prices, with many apartments under $750,000.”

Sialepis said the first stage of The Retreat architects, the SJB group, had designed buildings with glass-faced apartments that capitalised on views across Bicentennial Park and the Parramatta River to the Sydney CBD and the harbour bridge.

Stage one of The Retreat has 149 apartments, some of them the biggest in the area, and they range from one-bedroom through to four-bedroom penthouses with rooftop terraces.

The apartments will start at $585,000 and peak at $2,800,000 for one of the split-level penthouses.

Stage one is expected to be completed by March 2019.
