Starin’s Most Ambitious Project Gets DA Approval from the Ryde City Council – Macquarie Park Serviced Apartments
April 19th 2016 was an iconic day for Starin with its most ambitious project worth $55million receiving approval from the local authorities. Situated in the heart of Macquarie Park, Sydney, the Macquarie Park Serviced Apartments development is set to commence from mid-2016. Pursuing design excellence, the Macquarie Park project is a significant development for Starin. Beginning in November 2013, Starin received permission to construct a staggering 65-metre high apartment complex – the first of its height approved by the Ryde City Council’s Macquarie Park LEP incentive process.
Anurag Thukral, Starin CEO and Managing Director said the process has been a collaborative effort. “Our two and a half year journey involves a prestigious design competition among reputed firms.The winning crown goes to the leading Australian architectural firm, Group GSA. Along with Group GSA, there are contributions coming from urban planners JBA Urban and an extended team of reputable specialists. Starin appreciates each and everyone’s contribution in this project,’’ says Mr Thukral.
In addition to its strategic location in the heart of Macquarie Park, the buildings elevation promises high quality views of Sydney’s CBD and Harbour Bridge. Each of the 154 luxury apartments is fitted with a compact gourmet kitchen, an elegant bathroom, internal laundry and contemporary-styled furnishings. Arguably, one of the most appealing features of the Macquarie Park Serviced Apartments is that it promises to implement major renewable design initiatives. Along with energy savings, these innovative architectural concepts help reduce the size, weight and cost of the service plant that is strategically and uniquely located underneath the building for rooftop recreation and non-obstructed views.
The Macquarie Park Serviced Apartments project exemplifies Starin’s expanding portfolio within Sydney. The prominent project management firms include RPS Project Management and BlueVisions, who will assist in developing outstanding opportunities with long term prosperity and stability.
