Roxy-Pacific launches its new West End Residences. West End, Roxy-Pacific Australia's exciting new $280m residential development in Glebe, is uniquely placed to offer some of the best urban living choices in inner city Sydney. Vibrant local environment, rich history, charming character, and proximity to many of Sydney's key destinations provide great foundations for inspiration. Following from their hugely popular development in Potts Point, The Hensley, which has ushered in a new Belle à â?°poque to the inner city suburb as well as the recent success of Octavia in Killara, Roxy-Pacific is cementing its reputation for creating one-of-a-kind projects. West End promises to be no different. TPAA3450 Glebe E04_Cutaway_D copy Designed by the multi-award winning architects Turner with Interiors by Siren Design, the project will be released in two stages " The Foundry and the Arthouse. The first will feature New York style Soho apartments, arches and a distinctive warehouse style with brick and concrete detailing. Arthouse (while sharing some elements such as asymmetrical arches to designate entries and special spaces) will reverse these architectural motifs, being created in concrete with brick highlights. Atop The Foundry will be stunning penthouse architecture and both buildings will sport communal roof gardens and divided elevations to resemble a terraced village with views of the CBD. TPAA3450 Glebe E05_Detail_D copy Roxy-Pacific Director, Benjamin Hopkins, says they wanted to maintain the rich history of the site's prominent location. "Our vision for the site was inspired by the culture of Glebe, the rich architecture of Ultimo as well as the inner city living allowing residents to walk to the CBD, Broadway and Sydney Harbour in a matter of minutes. We wanted to create a village atmosphere so the residents would be inspired by their place of residence, which will be timeless with its unique design and attention to detail," said Mr. Hopkins.   Turner's challenge was to recreate Ultimo's urban culture and Glebe's village culture, highlighting the distinctive character and urban scale of both. Many apartments have views over Wentworth Park and to the CBD while others gaze down at internal courtyards creating a quiet sanctuary that doesn't compromise on privacy. Balconies have been carefully considered for entertaining with balanced views and street privacy while top-level apartments feature private rooftop gardens. TPAA3450 Glebe E04_Cutaway_D copy Inside, apartments are generously proportioned, light-filled, and minimally realised. "We saw a unique opportunity to design iconic, livable apartments for Glebe, that have an industrial edge mixed with a warm and refined aesthetic," says Mia Feasey CEO of Siren Design Communal spaces won't disappoint. A vibrant and interesting rooftop garden features stunning landscaping and a variety of spaces to suit individuals and small or large groups. Residents can enjoy the night sky and vistas of the city, relax and entertain with a BBQ for friends and family or kick back on grassed areas surrounded by trees and landscape designed planting by Oculus Landscape Architects.   Stephen Cox, Director of Turner said the firm designed West End to suit a wide range of residents. "The site is perfectly located with access to schools and universities for families and students, 2-minute access to the harbour-side and fish markets and easy nearby amenities for empty nesters," said Mr. Cox.

"With the ongoing gentrified area of existing industrial warehouses transforming into residential, West End will appeal to both owner-occupiers and investors and we expect 50% of the local demographic to be the "Ë?Smart Crowd' with a degree or higher education," said Mr. Bennett.

West End will be holding private VIP appointments from March 11 and will hold a grand opening launch on April 1. TPAA3450 Glebe E08 Elevated Dusk_D copy
