Highrise living: 6 of Sydney's best apartment rooftops

Australia has seen rapid development growth of high-rise apartments across its major cities, with the Australian Bureau of Statistics noting that 667,394 apartments, flats and units were built nationally between 2000 and 2019. While in their early days, apartments were considered to provide limited access to the outdoors and lacked space, in recent years, developers and their design teams have taken a more holistic approach when it comes to designing for modern liveability. We’ve seen creative, modern rooftops with integrated dining, recreational facilities, and even sky-high produce gardens to provide the benefits of living in the suburbs without the compromise of a city lifestyle.

With two-thirds of our global populace predicted to be living in a city by 2050 and the growing demand for rooftop living, today off-the-plan buyers are treated to state-of-the-art apartment amenities in any Australian city. For Sydneysiders, here is our round-up of the 6 best apartment rooftop developments on the market right now.
