‘Charlie Parker’ brings street to Harris Park

For those who fancy a splash of colour and artistry in their day-to-day lives, as well as the ambience of a culturally diverse community, Coronation Property’s latest boutique, residential tower in the leafy suburb of Harris Park – Parramatta’s cultural answer to Surry Hills – is set to deliver this to the market by way of its latest development known as ‘Charlie Parker’.

With exceptional design collaborations already established as befit all Coronation Property developments, Charlie Parker will span 22 storeys, including open-air pool and gym on the terrace level, and will comprise just 111 apartments. On this occasion, the Sydney-based property development company has partnered with award winning Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmt) architects for the artdeco-inspired design of Charlie Parker – aptly named by the two streets it is positioned on – Charles & Parkes Streets.
The boutique development will also be easily distinguished by the quirky imaginings of contemporary public artists Gillie & Marc, whom Coronation Property has commissioned to create bespoke artworks including the very ‘character’ of Charlie Parker himself. In the unique style coined by the talented artists of presenting many of their sculptures as new beings made up of two different halves – one human, one animal, Gillie & Marc have brought the concept of Charlie Parker to life by envisioning him as a suavely dressed, artistic and classy fellow with the head of a curvy and confident elephant. Director of Urban Transformation of Coronation Property, Mr Aras Labutis said the project’s concept and the bespoke artistry that will embody it, is something that is best experienced first-hand at the Charlie Parker gallery and display apartment currently taking shape and due to open 4th November 2017. “While it may all seem playful and light-hearted at this stage unlike many typical property campaigns, all will become clearer as our launch date approaches and the artistic collaborations are completely on display alongside the world-class architecture,” Mr Labutis said. To illustrate the plush and decadent, art-deco theme of the development, Charlie Parker will also incorporate a high-end, resident’s lounge, open-air pool, fully
equipped gymnasium and relaxation area of which will have various curated artworks on display. Other design collaborations announced for Charlie Parker include Durie Design – headed by international, award-winning landscape designer Jamie Durie, which Coronation Property has partnered with on two prior developments to develop extraordinary landscaped areas, including nearby 8 Phillip Street in Parramatta and The Paper Mill precinct in Liverpool. Convenience is at the very heart of Charlie Parker, with two train stations – Parramatta and Harris Park, just 500 and 650m away, respectively, and ideal positioning right within the suburb’s delightful ‘Little India’ eat streets for which it is well known. As with each of Coronation Property’s residential and mixed-use developments, clever design and innovation will feature right throughout the building and this will also translate from afar due to the development’s corner positioning and distinctive, curved architecture. Mr Labutis said Charlie Parker will open up the opportunity for those working in Sydney’s second largest CBD of Parramatta to purchase a home within walking
distance of the city, without some of the associated downsides of living right within it, and at a palatable price point. “Situated so close to both Parramatta and Harris Park train stations and just a few minutes from Western Sydney University, Parramatta Westfield and Parramatta River, Charlie Parker is big on lifestyle, with unrivalled convenience and connectivity,” he said.
‘Add to this its many nearby public transport nodes, including the Parramatta to Sydney rail project due for completion in 2023, we are receiving strong enquiry from
many different buyers, including young professionals, investors and first home buyers.” With almost half the Harris Park population aged 24-35-years old, Charlie Parker is
expected to sell particularly strongly to Sydney young professionals, for whom the suburbs’ trendy and artistic vibe has great appeal. Coronation Property has a long history of investing in the future of western Sydney, with its The Paper Mill development in Liverpool leading the way for riverside living in the area and 8 Phillip Street in Parramatta – launched last year, also paving the way for intelligent, luxury design that is still obtainable. Coronation’s highly successful nearby 8 Phillip Street in Parramatta has experienced unprecedented sales since it launched late last year, with multiple price records broken for penthouse apartment purchases in the area. “Although we are expecting some cross-over from those who may have missed out on their apartment of choice at 8 Phillip Street, we are also expecting successful buyers at this development to enquire about the residences at Charlie Parker in order to take full advantage of our
loyalty program, Coronation Society, which we welcome wholeheartedly,” Mr Labutis said.
Prices for apartments at Charlie Parker start from $475,000 for a one bedroom suite, $567,000 for a one bedroom residence, $785,000 for a two bedroom and
$898,000 for three bedrooms, with two four bedroom penthouses also available, with price on application.
