Tony Owen's Eliza apartments in Sydney's CBD approved and starting construction

The Eliza luxury apartment block by Tony Owen Partners has just been approved in Sydney and is commencing construction imminently. The Eliza - developed by Ceerose - is located on Elizabeth Street in Sydney's CBD on prestigious Hyde Park.

With only 19 apartments, this exclusive 17 storey development hopes to create a new standard in luxury and contemporary design for Australia, with units featuring a unique parametrically designed façade. It responds to the changing solar, view and planning conditions on each level such that the façade on every level is different.

The design features 2 and 4 bedroom units with panoramic park and harbour views as well as a 3 storey penthouse. The penthouse boasts a roof-top pool, private elevator and grand staircase and ceiling heights. For design inspiration Tony Owen Partners looked to the classics of 20th century design to create a ‘world class building for a truly unique site'.

The Eliza is located alongside some of the best examples of historic Sydney architecture, combining fluid digital profiles with classic and elegant materials to create a building which is at once progressive and stately.

This project is one of several by Tony Owen Partners currently at the construction stage in the pulsating city of Sydney, with student housing for Boston University nearing completion. Developed by Ceerose Pty Ltd, construction is now commencing on site and is expected to be completed by 2012.
