AURA by Aqualand the $1 Billion Sydney Build That Is Perfecting the Penthouse

21/10/2022 | SOHO

If you haven’t heard about it yet, there’s a new build in town, and it’s going to be a stunner. AURA, the $1 billion mixed-use luxury residential project in North Sydney, is developed by Aqualand and is set to complete mid-2024.

While first class amenities, spectacular vistas and a city-fringe location are not foreign to Sydney’s luxury apartment market, one of the defining features about the penthouses at AURA is their size. 

When Aqualand conceptualised AURA, their endeavour was to attract buyers that would normally be looking at houses over apartments. And in that, their solution was simple—really big apartments. 

Instead of adhering to the standard size of a 3-bedroom Sydney home, measuring around 110 square metres, the penthouses at Aura are up to double the size. 

“Often downsizers moving from larger homes are looking for the ease of apartment living without compromising on size,” explains AURA’s interior designer, Kirsten Stanisich of Richards Stanisich. 

Which is exactly what drew in the downsizer from Northbridge who made the most recent sub-penthouse purchase. Attracted to the area’s convenience, he snapped up a 4-bedroom apartment for $7.25 million (or $36,802 per square metre). 

So what else makes these top-floor residences so extraordinary? Kirsten clues us in on the universally appealing penthouse features at AURA that stand out to buyers and continue to provide capital growth prospects.
