The second stage of Cbus Property’s The Langston in Epping has been announced, which includes 180 apartments across a 24 storey tower known as Central. It follows on from Stage 1’s 29-storey Langston Tower, which features 192 apartments.
Stage 2 features updated designs that have seen project architect, Architectus, incorporate a range of exceptional new amenities. Chief Executive Officer of Cbus Property, Adrian Pozzo, said the amended designs at The Langston reflect the changing expectations of prospective residential apartment buyers in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
“Without doubt, 2020 has been a challenging year, and what has become evident in the residential high- and medium-density sectors is that homebuyers are looking for an increased level of amenity in and around their homes,” Mr Pozzo said.
“COVID-19 has seen many of us review our home space requirements and nearby amenities, and therefore, we have made our apartment designs for Central even more inviting for buyers than they already were, with additional on-site amenity that reduces the need to leave home.”
Central will include a Pool Deck, Wellness Hub and Sky Lounge & Dining spaces, which have been designed to provide residents with previously unavailable lifestyle options.
The Pool Deck incorporates a 20-metre pool and poolside cabanas, while the Wellness Hub provides comfortable gym and exercise spaces with views over the landscaped gardens and a direct connection to the Pool Deck.
Meanwhile, Sky Lounge & Dining offers a beautifully landscaped terrace with views of the Sydney CBD skyline and the Blue Mountains, perfect for celebrating special occasions.
The building will also include exclusive access to podium-level gardens, which will feature BBQs, casual seating areas, play zones and open green spaces offer even more options for on-site leisure and relaxation.
Additionally, on-site resident study areas and shared co-working spaces provide options for residents to easily work from home.
Central will also be home to a dynamic 2,100-square-metre mixed-use retail precinct incorporating a supermarket, cafés, restaurants, and a number of other retail tenancies.
According to Architectus Principal, Farhad Haidari, Central’s curvaceous form was designed to maximise outlook whilst responding to wind conditions and promoting solar access within the development.
“The building’s striking architecture is complemented by premium amenity that has been curated and designed to seamlessly blend with the residential nature of the building,” Mr Haidari detailed.
Upon its completion in late 2021, The Langston will feature three towers of 19, 24 and 29 storeys, and will include 2,750 square metres of publicly accessible open space.
Hutchinson Builders has been appointed to construct the project, with works now well underway.
The Langston’s towers are expected to reach Level 13 (of 29 levels), Level 11 (of 24 levels) and Level 8 (of 19 levels) respectively, by the end of October 2020.
