Renowned developer GURNER™ continues its impressive trajectory with the submission of revised plans for a landmark project worth $800 million at 189 Kent Street.

The proposed modifications, building upon the existing approved scheme, primarily concentrate on internal design enhancements aimed at offering a luxurious experience tailored to owner-occupiers. The updated blueprint includes an increased number of 3-bedroom residences, reducing the total apartments from 125 to 91. Moreover, there is a heightened emphasis on health and wellness amenities and resident services reminiscent of top-tier global hotels.

Drawing inspiration from the success of Gurner’s Saint Moritz and Hawksburn Place projects, which redefined high-end living in Melbourne, the revised plans aim to set a new standard for luxury living in Sydney’s prestigious harbour precinct.

“This is one of Australia’s most important sites, and we are very focused on bringing our signature high-end residences to the location, where owners can live their ultimate life with unsurpassed views of the harbour.” stated Gurner.

“We get many enquiries from Sydney residents wanting us to bring the prestige, amenity and service of Saint Moritz to Sydney, and that is exactly what we will be doing.

“The building is now fully focused on owner occupiers, with large two, three and four bedroom options that are almost all full-floor residences, with direct access lifts, incredible views and very high security.”

Central to the new vision is an extravagant 400sqm double-level penthouse boasting unparalleled views of Sydney Harbour and unmatched amenities.

At the ground level, 189 Kent Street will feature a sophisticated restaurant and bar, complemented by spacious lobbies catering to residents. Additionally, a range of resident-focused services including concierge assistance, butler services, prestige car share facilities, and on-site health and wellness services will be available.

Tim Gurner spoke of the changing buyer demographic evolving currently, looking for size and quality.

“We know the appetite is there for larger floorplans, particularly if they’re full-level, for wealthy downsizers and right-sizers, high net worth individuals and international buyers, who are flooding back into the Australian market.” Gurner stated.

“Health and wellness will remain a key focus for us as a business, and this will be reflected in the design for the buildings. We want our residents to feel like they can live their best lives, with all the wellbeing facilities and practitioners they need to achieve holistic wellness”

“We’re looking forward pushing our own standards even further with this scheme, and elevating this site to a level above what we’ve been able to do in Brisbane and Melbourne.”

A distinctive feature of the development is the majority of 3 and 4-bedroom residences, designed as full-floor apartments spanning approximately 250sqm. These residences will offer private lift access and outdoor terraces, providing panoramic views of the CBD skyline and Sydney Harbour.

Designed by FJC Studio, the architectural firm selected through an international design competition, the building promises to be a masterpiece that seamlessly integrates luxury living with iconic waterfront vistas.
