The fourth and final tower within Far East Consortium's (FEC) $1b West Side Place multi-tower development has been released. Located on Spencer and Lonsdale Streets, West Side Place is directly opposite FEC's now complete Upper West Side neighbourhood.

Known as The Park Release, the 70-storey mixed-use tower follows the success of the 72-storey Gold Release fronting Lonsdale Street. The approx. 235m high building will accommodate 684 apartments and a 4-star 312 room Dorsett branded hotel, offering views across the Flagstaff Gardens.

As part of the redevelopment of the 12,000 sqm former Age site, a new laneway will be developed connecting Lonsdale St and Little Lonsdale St, providing restaurants and an extensive number of retail sites focused around a central landscaped public realm.

The Park Release features a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments all designed to maximise natural light and completed with high-end quality fit-outs.

Residential amenities are located on levels 9 & 10 and include a residential lounge, private dinning rooms, wine tasting room with wine cellar, garden terrace with BBQ facilities, rooftop cinema, virtual golf, lap pool, plunge pools, gymnasium and yoga and pilates spaces and more.
