The Justin Brown-led Abadeen Group, who specialise in high-end apartment developments predominantly on Sydney's Lower North Shore, have filed plans for another Neutral Bay development.

Following their recently launched Enso Neutral Bay, Abadeen will look to target the affluent downsizer again with their latest project at 7-11 Premier Street, near Forsythe Park.

They've had PBD Architects draw up plans for a part four-level, part five-level development with 18 apartments, broken down into 14 three-bedroom apartments and four-two bedroom apartments. The two penthouses feature full-width terraces and a separate study space.

In their design statement submitted to the local council, PBD said the built form will respond to the immediate environment, with open community space a focus in the design process.

"The articulation of the built form is designed to effectively reduce the scale of the height of the building perceived from Premier Street through the introduction of various setbacks, a selected natural material palette, horizontal pre-cast concrete band, as well as featured curved planters on balcony edges," the report noted.

"The interplay of curvaceous architectural form defines the spatial design, separating the building into two cores with a centralised passage into the entrance foyer.

"With a strategically layered façade, the design creates seven opportunities to maximise direct northern sunlight into the entrance space."

The upper-level penthouse apartments are crowned with a bronze-toned metal cladding to create a material contrast to the overall mass.

Abadeen have another project in Neutral Bay, Enso, a collection of just nine apartments designed by the renowned architect Koichi Takada.

There's a mix of one, two and three-bedroom apartments in the Grosvenor Street development.

Abadeen also had Takada design their newest Crows Nest project, Koyo.

Koyo, a Japanese terms which refers to the changing colours of the leaves in autumn, has been geared toward the owner-occupier, with its generously-sized living and outdoor areas.

Takada said he was inspired by the parks and the deciduous trees in the area.

"We really wanted to bring that external element of nature into the internal space", Takada said.

Abadeen also recently branched out to Queensland, where they've seen huge success in Palm Beach with their debut Gold Coast project, Villea.

Only three-bedroom apartment remain in the 69-apartment tower at 26 Mawarra Street.

Justin Brown said Palm Beach is one of Australia’s premier beachfront locations.

“The location of the site is close to northern Palm Beach’s pristine beachfront precinct as well as Tallebudgera Creek and is located in an area where there are very few development opportunities for such a project.

“We know the market is running very strongly on the southern Gold Coast, in Palm Beach particularly, and believe the market is primed for this project."
