Charlie Parker is situation in an excellent location – just 400m from Parramatta Railway Station and walking distance from the Parramatta CBD – in the Harris Park neighbourhood, an area with great potential, and extremely low vacancy rates.
While initially acquiring the site with approval for 40 apartments, Coronation Property expanded this vision to accommodate an art-deco inspired FJMT-designed building, incorporating 113 luxury apartments.
Charlie Parker represents a fusion of scales, geometries, community and culture. Charlie Parker’s tower is bold and distinctive yet softened by curves – creating a contemporary, streamlined design reminiscent of early 20th century modern architecture with all the comforts of contemporary urban living which features a wellness space and swimming pool, library, and lush landscaping.
It is a truly modern building that draws on the environmental and cultural strengths of the site. Extensive glass has been used to create a sense of light and space, while brickwork wraps around to form a ‘cradle’ that supports the tower. On the building’s south side, the relaxed formal architecture creates a relationship to the neighbouring buildings, and the entrance is elevated off the street to invite visitors inside.
