Pent up demand in Sydney has been released at Paramount on Parkes in Parramatta, one of the first apartment buildings to launch sales since Sydney came out of its prolonged lockdown.

The launch of sales at Paramount on Parkes, the 39-level tower to be developed by the well respected and local developer ALAND, saw 25 sales secured over the weekend, with a further 60 appointment scheduled.

ALAND released the first 135 apartments of the 294-apartment tower, designed by Sketch Design Group and Stanisic Architects, which were a hit with investors and owner-occupiers.

They were drawn to Paramount's prime location on the fringe of Parramatta, a stones throw from Parramatta train station and minutes from riverside parks, shopping precincts and a number of fine dining restaurants, bars, and cafes.

The spacious floorplans were also a tick for buyers, as well as the state of the art amenities which will include a resort-style pool on the podium level, a 300 sqm rooftop terrace with barbecue area, lush landscaped gardens with local Western Sydney flora, and resident-only children’s play areas.

Buyers so far have been predominantly young couples and young families in their early and mid 30's, moving to the area from within a 10 kilometre radius of Parramatta.

The first stage will see 10 one-bedroom apartments up for grabs from $573,000, 115 two-bedroom apartments starting at $767,000, and 10 three-bedroom apartments starting at $1.083 million.

ALAND Sales Director, Mark Bernberg, said purchasers are keen to see new supply become available that also represents great value for money.

"Paramount on Parkes has created a lot of buzz among buyers who‘ve spent their lockdown period reassessing what qualities they’re seeking in a home," Bernberg said.

"Given the excellent lifestyle amenities of this flagship development and its very convenient location, it offers an extraordinary move for homeowners and investors alike."

Each apartment is designed to maximise light and space with floor-to-ceiling windows framing panoramic district views and covered balconies.

Finished with neutral colour palettes so buyers can add their own personal touch, the apartments also have ducted air-conditioning, Fisher & Paykel appliances, Grohe tapware and marble surfaces.

Some apartments come with the option of convenient study nooks and additional storage.

Head of Development for ALAND, Ryan Lane, said the premium Western Sydney development had been a passion project for the family-run business, which is also the major sponsor of the NRL’s Parramatta Eels.

“With the ALAND name proudly emblazoned on the jerseys of the local team every weekend, we feel that we’ve earned our place as part of The Fabric that makes up Parramatta. The launch of Paramount on Parkes now further cements that position,” Lane said.

Lane added that with Parramatta taking pride of place as Sydney’s second CBD, the dynamic destination has become a highly desirable location for both owner occupiers and investors.

“As the geographical heart of Sydney, Parramatta offers its residents a wealth of cultural, educational and employment opportunities. And with the second airport at Badgerys Creek underway, as well as easy access to other transport links, it will soon offer locals even more convenient travel connections,” Lane added.

Paramount on Parkes is an approximate 10-minute walk to riverfront reserves or the Parramatta Wharf and is a short stroll from the soon-to-be-completed Parramatta Square employment hub and Civic Centre.

There are a number of local attractions, including Eat Street, Riverside Theatre, the Powerhouse Precinct, walking tracks, cycleways and the 85ha of green space at Parramatta Park. Westfield Parramatta is 600m from the doorstep.

In addition to a number of in-demand public and private schools in the vicinity, Parramatta is also home to campuses for the University of Western Sydney and University of Sydney.
