Just over a decade ago, only around 3,000 people called Sydney's inner-city suburb Zetland home.

Fast forward 10 years and the population has spiked by 230 per cent, with government infrastructure and the appeal of living in Sydney's inner-fringe saw investors, renters, and prospective home buyers look to the small 0.3 square kilometre suburb.

The spike is no doubt in part to the revolution of Green Square, the new $13 billion precinct that's been particularly popular with Millenials due to its proximity to the city and relative affordability in comparison to other city fringe suburbs.

There's also the $106 million Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation which has been a focal point of the community since opening in 2021.

Recognising the emergence of Zetland was prominent Sydney developer builder Deicorp, who in 2020 paid $140 million for a 2.16-hectare site on Epsom Road, on the fringe of Green Square.

That's exactly what they've done with Downtown, their striking mixed-use development at 106-116 Epsom Road, on the fringe of the creative suburb Rosebery.

They had architecture giants MHNDU and BVN work together to create four distinct residential buildings homing 546 one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

The Epsom Road, city fringe location has been one of the main drivers in demand at Downtown.

Green Square Station is just an eight-minute walk, while the Eastern Distributor is even closer.

Within a short walk from Downtown residents will find a number of dining options including Buku Eatery, Social Society, Treetop Cafe, Cicco and Lucio Pizzeria and Village Crown.

The nearby Alexandria is home to further popular eateries like South Dowling Sandwiches, Textbook Boulangerie Patisserie, and Sushi Jones Japanese Bistro, while the well-known Kepos Street Kitchen can be found in the nearby Redfern. 

East Village Shopping Centre is located at the northern end of Zetland. That boasts over 60 convenience food and lifestyle shops.

Residents are within proximity to prestigious golf courses, racecourses, and sporting stadiums, including Moore Park Golf Course, Royal Randwick Racecourse, Sydney Football Stadium, and the historic SCG.

The inner east location puts Downtown residents within easy access of the beaches to the east, or Sydney's thriving inner west, with Newtown's King Street not far.

There are six parks within three kilometres of Downtown, 12 educational establishments within two kilometres, and 127 parks and green cafes with five kilometres.
