Payce Consolidated develops Victoria Park luxury apartments in the heart of Sydney – Platinum by Payce
The Payce development Platinum is a fitting finale to the Victoria Park development according to Payce Managing Director Brian Boyd.
Mr Boyd says the Victoria Park site which was home to not only horse racing but also had a car and bike track in the 1920s is the crown jewel in the company`s 35 year history.
"These luxury apartments designed by award winning architectural group Turner are a great example of what should be offered in a luxury apartment," Mr Boyd said.
The final stage of the Victoria Park development includes 322 apartments.
Comprising of five buildings ranging from six to 15 storeys each with its own colour scheme, Platinum promises to be a luxury environment for residents. Platinum takes luxury apartment living in Sydney to new heights. With features of the highest quality and finishes, each apartment offers buyers the ultimate in luxury living in one of Sydney`s best entertainment precincts. Natural materials are used throughout the building in both the apartments and common areas. The lobbies and the health club feature natural stone and timber extensively with concealed lighting and refined, modern finishes such as smoked mirrors and patinated metals. The bespoke designs and finishes contribute to a luxurious and glamorous look reminiscent of a hip New York bar or members only club. Platinum by Payce offers luxury apartment living in Sydney at its finest.
Platinum by Payce – Luxury off plan apartments Sydney.
Overwhelming demand for off plan apartments in Stage One of Platinum by Payce at Victoria Park in Sydney prompted the early release of the remaining 142 apartments. The Stage Two release of off plan apartments sold equally as quickly with buyers emerging from local and international regions. Sydney boasts an internationally recognised level of lifestyle and this is mirrored in the popularity of luxury apartments in the Sydney city area. The Platinum development sold-out very quickly with all luxury apartments purchased off plan.
The complex – with its on-site health club complete with gym, spa, steam room and zen gardens is far cry from the original site uses.
The site has a colourful history – the lagoon and swamp on the site was drained in the early 1900s to create a racecourse that was privately owned and developed by Sir James John Joynton Smith who was a hotelier, racecourse operator and newspaper owner.
But that was not only colourful land use – in 1908 a clay-and-cinders track was built on the same site and was home to speedway racing.
The mechanical theme continued when the site was used as a vehicle assembly facility until it closed in 1975.
Today the street speed limit is walking pace as residents stroll to nearby parks and the Moore Park entertainment centre.
Modern apartments in Sydney offer contemporary urban living opportunities to buyers
"This is a location that offers so much for residents – it is all on your doorstep and I am sure that is one of the reasons why these apartments have sold so well," Mr Boyd said.
"The design of these apartments, in particular the interiors are another world – the work of our designer Koichi Takada is outstanding."
Payce has taken the concept of contemporary urban living in Sydney to a new level with the release of the Platinum apartment development. Boasting interiors and fittings of the highest quality, Platinum extends the contemporary aspect of the development where a landscaped central courtyard is included in the design with an outdoor kitchen and raised timber and bamboo ‘ pods ’. Platinum offers unsurpassed urban living opportunities in Sydney. Sustainable practices have been incorporated into the Platinum development and the Victoria Park precinct. This includes solar collection, passive design, emission reduction and water retention / reuse. The site features almost four hectares devoted to open space and beautiful parklands, ensuring quality contemporary urban living at its best.
Platinum by Payce - Contemporary apartments in Sydney deliver modern lifestyle choices
Mr Boyd said he was extremely proud of the Platinum development which is Payce`s third on the Victoria Park site.
"Platinum is a great site with parks on three sides and great views – I am sure people living here will have a great quality of life."
One of the driving qualities of the Platinum development is the incorporation of green spaces and parklands. Australia`s modern lifestyle is a mix of social and sporting activities and the Platinum development delivers access to both with a level of unsurpassed luxury. These contemporary apartments sit perfectly in a green oasis of modern landscape design. The lifestyle choices open to Platinum apartment buyers are vast and sure to appeal to a wide range of people. Contemporary apartments in Sydney do offer a myriad of modern lifestyle choices and the Platinum development has shown its leader status by incorporating the highest of standards to every aspect of the project.
Mr Boyd said Victoria Park was a great example of what can be achieved by well thought and planned projects.
"When you see how the site is changing it is hard to believe that this was a manufacturing facility and even further back a racecourse."
