Welcome to Society, the Inner West’s best new apartments. Boasting prime position in the McGill Street Master Planned Precint, this is Sydney’s newest property hot spot. Society is the pinnacle of boutique residential development – where über design meets fabulous finishes meets awesome location. It is perfectly positioned right by the Lewisham West Light Rail, with boutique retail at the doorstep and a beautiful new park directly opposite. The majority of these designer apartments are North-facing with lovely outlooks. Summer Hill and its vibrant village are across the tracks, literally a stone’s throw away, with Leichhardt, Dulwich Hill, Ashfield and Marrickville close by. And with great public transport including light rail, train and buses, Society is perfectly connected to the rest of Sydney. Acclaimed architects Baker Kavanagh have created a variety of sublimely beautiful, supremely liveable apartments within a verdant landscape that belies its proximity to urban life.
Lewis loves Lewisham. He’s lived here all his life and is about to make his first purchase. His parents still live in the home he was bought up in and he’s renting just around the corner. He loves the little shops that only locals know about. He loves how his suburb is evolving… still a lot of history, beautiful federation homes and tree lined streets, but changes coming for the better. Most of all he loves how Lewisham is the hub of the Inner West, so connected to all of Sydney. He doesn’t own a car and doesn’t need to. His legs take him to Summer Hill Village shops and the Light Rail takes him quickly to the city, where he works and studies. And Lewis loves Leichhardt, too. Italian food is his favourite and the Light Rail takes him there in minutes. For Lewis, it’s all here. This is his centre. It’s home and always will be.
Summer’s favourite shopping in Sydney is the Summer Hill Village. It’s like nowhere else. The shopkeepers know her by name, her neighbours are actually friendly and the pace of life just seems more relaxed than most of Sydney. Summer loves the local parks… her favourite thing to do on Sunday is to lie under a tree, read a book and doze. She loves having a long weekend lunch with friends at one of her local cafés, such great food and atmosphere. She loves sitting in the village square by the fountain, watching the world go by. Then at night, it’s da Vinci’s or Mancini’s for Italian or One Penny Red when she’s craving fine dining. Summer can’t wait for Society. She’s a big fan of the council vision for the McGill Street precinct linking Summer Hill, Lewisham and the Light Rail.
Syd likes Sydney. He works there and he plays there. But he doesn’t want to live there. He wants somewhere close enough to the action for a quick commute but he wants home to be more laid back, a place to relax and unwind from his work life. Syd’s looking for somewhere he can afford a bit more for his real estate dollar. He has friends in the Inner West who are raving about it… so central to everything… really happening….great energy. Syd likes Lewisham, he’s heard it’s starting to take off. Syd wants in.
Multi-award winning architects, Baker Kavanagh, have created homes that respect individuality, providing architectural canvases to decorate your way. The development faces North, so has optimal solar access which can be controlled by way of louvered shutters. Living areas are spacious and sublime, reflecting intelligent design and spatial generosity. Most balconies are North-facing, sun-drenched and generous, overlooking the park and providing ideal outdoor entertaining areas. Choose from wonderful one, terrific two and thrilling three bedroom apartments and penthouses. The floorplans are diverse, with some apartments offering generous landscaped courtyards extending off the indoor living areas. Two penthouse apartments have private landscaped garden space and all have spacious balconies.
Gourmet kitchens feature Bosch European stainless steel appliances, double sinks and Caesarstone benchtops. Generous bedrooms offer roomy wardrobes and sumptuous wool blend carpet, with master bedrooms featuring ensuites. Beautiful bathrooms boast decadent baths, in-wall toilets and circular tiles that create character and soften the edgy design. Floors are either porcelain tiled and wool carpeted or timber floorboards imported from Europe. Choose between light or darker colour palettes. The Radiant scheme tones are neutral and warm, imbuing the apartments with an uplifting and airy feel. Organic white Caesarstone and whitewashed Oak joinery all add elements of luxury. The Avant-Garde scheme creates contrast, with earthy coloured wool blend carpet, striking black circular tiles and Raven Caesarstone benchtops all adding a touch of drama.
The architectural design on the impressive exterior has been influenced by the park across the road. The building is strongly horizontal in response to the linear design of the park, providing an ideal solution that produces predominantly North facing apartments with sun-drenched balconies and beautiful park views. Landscaping for the development is green and verdant, reflecting the organic nature of the design and beautifully complementing the park.
There is a beautiful communal landscaped roof garden overlooking the park, designed by landscape architects, Ecodesign. This rooftop is expansive and features two alfresco dining spaces, two seating areas, a timber decked area, pergola and a covered BBQ with outdoor kitchen area, all surrounded by verdant plantings. It will provide a fantastic place to relax and unwind or entertain friends. On the ground floor there will be three retail spaces, ideal for café, restaurant and boutique commercial and retail use. The development has three separately located lifts to ensure easy access to all apartments and common areas are generous and have a superior level of finish. Storage in these homes is plentiful, either within the apartment itself or on the basement level. The building has secure basement residential and visitor parking.
Marrickville Council have developed a Masterplan for the McGill Street Precinct that is located at the border of the suburbs of Lewisham and Summer Hill. The precinct is set to be completely transformed into a predominantly residential area with small businesses such as restaurants and boutique shops providing further amenities to residents. The Greenway is an environmental, active transport and cultural corridor that will link the Cooks River with Iron Cove via the Hawthorn Canal. This green belt sits adjacent to the Society development. The Council is introducing a new park directly across from Society. The design is to be ecologically sustainable and the Council is tightly controlling scale and density of development (with a finite number of apartments), landscaping, public domain improvements and the mix of uses. It also requires built form to be diverse, the area to be sustainable, all roads to be upgraded and a village atmosphere to be created. The unique qualities and possibilities for the McGill Street precinct will revitalise the area, opening it up to the community to realise an exciting, vital and aesthetically attractive precinct that complements and supports its surrounding neighbourhoods.
