Developer reveals design of future civic square

April 10, 2018 by  

The exterior design of the new civic square of Sydney’s lower north shore has recently been unveiled.

This major project located at Christine Street in St. Leonards, named Eighty Eight, is being built by residential developer JQZ. The architect firm responsible for the design is PTW.

In 2017, JQZ purchased the site for $300m after knocking off strong competition from other developers, including Mirvac, Meriton and Greenland.

The project will provide pedestrians with an underground connection to Friedlander Place and into the St. Leonards heavy rail train station. Also included in the development plan are new laneways, a new library, a community square, and a large rooftop communal area. The new Crows Nest metro station is also being built a few blocks away. The developer has already sold 70% of its off-plan apartments, which will begin construction in August 2018.

Eighty Eight showcases professional planning principles of a high-density mixed-used precinct. The project involves the development of public and communal areas similar to Central Park in Chippendale, which was built by Frasers Property and Sekisui House. PTW also worked on the architectural design of the Central Park project.

Home buyers or investors who are interested in purchasing apartments in St. Leonards can contact real estate agents for some professional advice. Contact details of real estate agents can be found from business cards or via word of mouth.
