Beyond Hurstville is the latest project from the design-minded developer Fridcorp.

The $700 million project at 93 Forest Road, Hurstville in Sydney's south-west has 563 apartments across four towers and is set to be one of the best mixed-use developments in the suburb.

Urban has taken a look at the eight reasons why Beyond Hurstville should be on your shortlist.

1. The developer

The Melbourne-based Fridcorp is one of Australia's most designed-focused developers. Founded in 1997 by Paul Fridman and Nigel Givoni, Fridcorp have primarily focused their development efforts in their home state, which makes a quality Fridcorp development in Sydney hard to find,

They developed the Erskineville apartment development Eve, comprising 197 apartments, which they completed in 2016, as well as the nearby apartment and townhouse development Wonder.

They've had success with a number of developments in South Yarra including Avenue and lilli.

Fridcorp believed in Beyond Hurstville so much that last year they bought out the remaining 50 per cent share of the project from Wingate.

2. Architects 

Fridcorp called in DKO Architecture, who designed Eve in Erskineville, and Woods Bagot, to create the four sculpted towers articulating a timeless, organic form.

The two revered architects have worked in collaboration alongside 360 Degrees Landscape and Piety Group to deliver the project which will also feature work from artists Dina Broadhurst and Brooklyn Whelan.

3. Wellness by Fridcorp

Fridcorp recognised the need for residents to have more than just a solid wellness focus within its communal facilities.

‘Wellness by Fridcorp’ systems introduced in the apartments focus on enhancing the natural elements of indoor air, water and light through air purification, water filtration and innovative circadian lighting technology to promote a well-balance mind, body and regenerative sleep.

4. Wellness features in the development

The wellness elements of Beyond Hurstville don't just exist in the apartment. The development features a raised podium complete with a gym, yoga studio, sauna, tai chi meditation deck, community garden and a communal sports court.

Residents will be able to reserve spaces using the Beyond community mobile phone application, as well as access a virtual concierge, book a dog walking service or a personal training session.

The app will also allow users to connect with the precinct and wider Hurstville community, explore nearby activities and receive offers from local retailers.

There will also be restaurants located at the foot of the building.

6. Affordable entry price

First home buyers have already descended on Beyond Hurstville due to its entry price.

One bedroom apartments in Beyond Hurstville start from $585,000, well below the soaring Sydney median apartment price of $738,254. CoreLogic's monthly update in March saw apartment prices rise 1.2 per cent over February.

The one bedroom apartments with a multi-purpose room are just over the median, starting from $785,000. Two bedrooms are priced from $870,000 and three bedrooms from $1,325,000.
