Opera Residences

Value: $440M

On the only remaining development site in the Harbour Circle, Opera Residences transformed the former site of the CC Amatil building into a 19 Storey mixed-use development consisting of 109 luxury residential/serviced apartments with public domain improvements to the harbour foreshore and pedestrian connection between Circular Quay and Macquarie Street. As part of the Development Application, a design excellence competition was held with the scheme designed by Tzannes Architects being the selected design.

Urban negotiated the acquisition of the site in 2015 on behalf of the development consortium and continued to act in a Project Development Capacity throughout the delivery of the project. In doing so, Urbans were able to overcome the development of unique site conditions to establish what is arguably Australia’s most prestigious address. Located in the centre of Sydney Harbour’s Circular Quay, the site is bound by the Cahill Expressway to the South, the mixed-used building known as Quay Grand to the North, Circular Quay promenade to the West and Macquarie Street to the East.

Opera Residences Apartment sales broke multiple national records due to its enviable location and masterfully curated design and project leadership.
