At Kindred, Astute Property's latest residential development in the heart and soul of Marrickville, every space tells a story. Focussing on the suburb's distinctive community atmosphere, Kindred is leading the curve by realising a design that is as individual as its location. Just 7 km from Sydney's CBD, the considered design has been created by renowned local architects Benson McCormack who have crafted homes with heart inspired by Marrickville's authentic village vibe. The two striking buildings house a boutique selection of just 39 superbly crafted one and two bedroom apartments under a metallic zinc-like mansard roof that speaks to the elegant church spire next door while contemporary use of traditional materials knits Kindred into the existing local fabric. CBRE Director Colin Griffin says Kindred is unlike any development Marrickville has seen before and Astute Property has ensured the project will complement the area's village-like atmosphere which flourishes with a variety of cultures. 170621_MARRICKVILLE_V03_REAR_HERO_FINAL "We expect to receive interest from investors, young couples and local downsizers who are conscious of the benefits the Marrickville community has to offer. Investors see Marrickville as a real growth opportunity given the proximity to the CBD, transport options, great schools, all within a vibrant village community. Much like the booming interest and price escalation in Surry Hills, Marrickville has all the ingredients to be the next "Ë?growth' suburb," noted Mr Griffin. "Considered as inner west property specialists who consistently raise the benchmark for quality development, Astute Property recognised buyers were searching for an exceptional product in both design and finish and the developer has certainly met the brief," he said.
