Another group of higher education students have moved into new custom-designed student accommodation at Central Park in Chippendale.

The Steps Central Park is part of the accomodation mix at the $2 billion mixed-use masterplanned community.

Developed by joint venture partners, Frasers Property Australia and Sekisui House Australia and operated by UniLodge, The Steps Central Park building was designed by international architecture practice, Foster + Partners and local architects, Nettletontribe.

The Steps Central Park is the second stage of student housing to be delivered following the launch of UniLodge @ Kensington Street in February 2015.

Frasers Property Sales and Marketing Director, Paul Lowe noted the accomodation was located opposite two major universities, UTS and University of Notre Dame, and a short walk to The University of Sydney.

The Steps Central Park comprises 770 apartments within 14 levels, offering a combination of purpose-built self-contained studio suites, a mix of share apartments and student-focussed communal areas.

UniLodge general manager, Phil Shelley said UniLodge fully furnished rooms with air-conditioning and heating and exclusive use bathrooms, along with flexible living spaces which facilitate social and educational experiences. 

A defining design feature of The Steps Central Park is the central foyer atrium which incorporates a series of timber steps, conceived as the social learning hub of the building.

The first student to move into The Steps Central Park was 26 year old Charlie Wang, who is studying a PhD in Civil Engineering at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS).

“One of the most appealing things about living at The Steps is the convenience of being part of the Central Park precinct and having everything I need within walking distance. There is Woolworths, coffee shops, juice bars, a Commonwealth Bank and endless dining options right on my doorstop – between university and Central Park, I pretty much never need to leave the area!"

The opportunity to live at The Steps Central Park is still available with rooms starting from $340 weekly.
