A coveted student address The new-build Urbanest student housing project brings premium student accommodation into Sydney’s vibrant heart. Comprising two multi-storey towers with just over 1000 student accommodation beds, Urbanest student housing is expected to open in early 2016.
Revitalising Darling Harbour The Darling Harbour Live initiative will breathe new life into Sydney’s most renowned precinct, creating a world-leading hub for living, meeting and entertainment. The revitalisation will see significant upgrading of the area’s exhibition, convention and entertainment centres, as well as construction of a new residential, commercial and cultural precinct in The Haymarket.
Iconic surroundings The Urbanest building will be an integral part of the new precinct’s ‘city wall’. Located on Darling Drive between the Pier Street flyover and Macarthur and Hay Streets, it will claim instantly recognisable buildings, ultra-convenient infrastructure and dynamic public space as its backyard.
