Top Spring Australia has received development application (DA) approval from the City of Sydney for its residential project in the Eastern Suburbs hotspot of Elizabeth Bay.
Located at 11-13 Greenknowe Avenue, Elizabeth Bay, the project will replace the disused building most recently occupied by SHMH Group Australia, which was formerly the headquarters of the NSW Country Women’s Association.
With the existing building confirmed by City of Sydney as having no heritage significance, the new PBD Architects-designed scheme approved for the site will reflect the surrounding area’s heritage through its brick façade and art deco features.
The six-storey residential development will feature 30 luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom residences, including a penthouse, above a single level basement car park accommodating 31 vehicles.
In order to complement the architectural design envisioned by PBD Architects, Top Spring Australia has also recently appointed award-winning Melbourne-based designer, Miriam Fanning, of MIM Design.
The project consultant team also includes Taylor Brammer Landscape Architects, whose design narrative seeks to introduce a natural landscape setting to the surrounding urban environment.
Taylor Brammer’s lush landscaping and greenery will create a green haven for residents, ideal as a peaceful retreat, or to enhance productivity when working from home.
According to Sydney Ma, Director and General Manager of Top Spring Australia, Greenknowe Avenue will also demonstrate the company’s ambition to incorporate the character of the local area into each of their projects.
“Elizabeth Bay is well-known for its stunning architecture, so with our Greenknowe Avenue project, we are committed to delivering an exemplary level of quality and design, while respecting and honouring the distinctive architectural character of the local surroundings,” explained Mr Ma.
“In this context, it will be of utmost importance for us to deliver an outstanding building design that complements Elizabeth Bay, and it’s pleasing to know the City of Sydney approves of our vision.”
