A CONNECTION TO NATURE SOFTENS THE FOOTPRINT OF A LUXURY DEVELOPMENT
Imagine living in an apartment complex with a fruit tree and herb garden maintained for the exclusive use of the residents, who prepare their pickings at a central table equipped with a tea brewing station. This vision of an idyllic lifestyle is within the reach of buyers seeking a mix of luxe and eco-friendly apartment living in the heart of Macquarie Park, Sydney-based developer Romeciti has launched stage one of its latest project ‘Natura’, with the promise to buyers of a lifestyle experience that has “the latest in green living and smart luxury”.
What sets the 357-apartment complex apart from its competitors is a connection to its location beside a creek and an array of day-spa style facilities intended to give the project a high-end edge. Urban style meets the natural environment in a harmonious blend. The $450-million development set on 11,000 sq m offers more open spaces than similar developments in the area, with 7000 sq m set aside for landscaped gardens that will include garden and forest entrances, a botanic sanctuary and a bike path that connects to a nearby path. Two 20-storey towers connected through a concrete and steel podium will be built on the site at 82 Waterloo Rd, Macquarie Park.
Five floors of the complex will be given over to private amenities, each with a different theme.The ground floor will be dedicated to social activities and will include a function room, wine cellar, kitchen, reflective pool, business lounge, outdoor lounge with garden and dining area with a barbecue.Flame trees are included in the native plantings at Natura. The second and third floors have a health and wellness theme fulfilled by a saltwater pool, sauna, gym and yoga room. Level three has a library and meditation zone while level 5 has the bucolic fruit garden and a “green roof” to help suck up co2 emissions. A sky lounge on level 20 will be for the exclusive use of penthouse owners.Other eco-friendly features are electric car chargers in the car park and a solar roof above the pool area to power the development’s amenities. It is expected that young executive couples will be drawn to the development, along with “high tech savvy locals” working in Macquarie Park’s innovation hub and owner occupiers looking for a “premium lifestyle in an urban setting.”
