8 of NSW's top luxury apartments

From resident room service to places where even the bathroom has a spectacular view, luxury living in New South Wales has been taken to a whole new level. The Urban.com.au database has over 1000 new apartment projects in Sydney alone, so we decided to take a look at some of the most lavish and opulent residences in the state.

Builder: Parkview

Completion: 2020

60 Bathurst was Smart Design Studio’s winning design for the Sussex 286 Design Excellence Competition and will be an exciting new addition to the NSW skyline once completed. The 27-storey tower will feature 95 units, with 36 one-bedroom apartments selling out almost instantly despite being listed for $800,000 each. All apartments has been designed to reflect modern luxury with warm, chevron timber floors, smooth marble surfaces and carefully considered fixtures to ensure the spaces feel effortlessly elegant. Sparkling bronze mirrors and gold trims add a sense of opulence and grandeur, while spectacular bathroom views provide added luxury.

“You can buy in an older complex at 25-30 per cent less, but it’s going to be 20 years old, dated and tired. People are prepared to pay what new apartments are costing because they realise they will be buying high quality.”

Opera Residences are situated in one of Sydney’s most beautiful locations. With views of Circular Quay, The Rocks, the Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge, the unbeatable locale is just one of the many reasons the development has gained significant popularity.

Each of the 104 luxury apartments boasts lustrous marbles, bespoke chevron timber flooring, inlaid Flemish copper and dramatic mirrors. Residents will also have access to private lounge rooms, an on-site library and wine store, as well as 24/7 concierge service.

“With a palette of stone, concrete and glass, the distinctive and complex sculptural form of the building will induce varied emotional responses when viewed from the diverse surrounding urban contexts of Circular Quay, the Opera House, Cahill Expressway and the Botanic Gardens.”

The Loftus Lane apartments located in the heart of the Quay Quarter Sydney precinct currently under development by AMP Capital, bring a new experience of modern living to the city of Sydney. The 106 boutique apartments will be surrounded by activated laneways and offer maximised views. At the base of the apartments, unique lanes precinct with heritage buildings and fine-grain retail will be created. They will also sit adjacent to the new Quay Quarter Tower and 10,000 square metres of retail, which will transform the Bridge and Alfred Street blocks with a heightened focus on community, sustainability and daring design. The Quay Quarter Sydney precinct features one acre of private and public open space.

“Circular Quay is Sydney’s gateway, but it has lacked relevance in recent years – Quay Quarter Sydney is a precinct worthy of a place alongside the world’s most famous harbour.”
