Developer TWT Property has recently announced the completion of the anticipated NewLife Darling Harbour development in Ultimo, Sydney. An official opening ceremony was held to celebrate the milestone, with a number of industry experts in attendance, including Gavin Zhang (Director of TWT Property Group), Michael Harrison (Principal of Architectus) and Tony Touma (Executive Chairman of Parkview).

Architectus’ final design features 199 contemporary apartments, including luxury penthouse suites, which have been dispersed across four striking towers.

The celebratory event also saw the opening of a brand-new public laneway and art installation by kinetic sculpture artist, Xia Hang.

“We are honoured to unveil a new public artwork, ‘Memory Tree’, by Xia Hang today for residents, the local community and wider Sydney-siders to enjoy. At TWT, we believe experiencing art improves wellbeing and should be part of everyday life, sparking conversations and interactions. Memory Tree is a key element of NewLife Darling Harbour that complements and enhances the surrounding neighbourhood.”

Memory Tree brings a sense of vibrancy and intrigue to Ultimo landscape with its unique aesthetic. The artwork weighs 50 kilograms and is comprised of over 1200 laser-cut stainless steel components. 

“Memory Tree is an intricate, kinetic-lit, eight metre-high ‘tree’ which reflects the site’s history, present and future. I was inspired by my childhood love of early animations such as the Transformers series.”   

Xia Hang, Artist

The buildings have been crafted around a central landscaped courtyard – providing a place for residents to meet and relax. Green rooftops and an organic garden also place an emphasis on the importance of green space within the urban environment.

“We take an active role in curating the communities we create, ensuring a diverse range of vibrant communal areas and experiences that bring people together.”

Gavin Zhang, Director of TWT Property Group

The community laneway which links Harris Street with Bulwara Road, will help aid pedestrian access, and the ability to navigate the precinct with ease. The ground floorplates of the buildings will also be used as retail space, providing amenity for both residents and the wider community.

NewLife Darling Harbour sold 70% of stock within the first release in 2016. Apartments are currently still available for sale or lease.
