Crown Residences at One Barangaroo, billed as Australia’s most luxurious residences, are being offered to ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNWIs) from the Middle East and other regions as “a once in-a-lifetime” investment opportunity.

The property lies within the heart of Sydney’s newest CBD precinct and offers unique views of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House. It offers ultra-luxury accommodation, services, restaurants and other amenities.

The design will reflect the ultimate in luxury living, and is influenced by London architecture, furnished with Manhattan interiors, and Balinese landscape design.

As well as offering the best of luxury living, Crown Residences at One Barangaroo provides a unique investment opportunity within one of the most stable, prosperous and strongest economies in the world, says Erin van Tuil, Partner, Crown Residences at One Barangaroo.

“Crown Residences at One Barangaroo will sit within the tallest residential tower in Sydney and boasts views over the world’s most beautiful harbour overlooking Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The architecture is a marvel. The building will be a sculptural form made of three petals that twist as it rises up. It really will be inspiring,” says Van Tuil.

 “The Crown Residences is a once in-a-lifetime investment opportunity where a location and developer of this magnitude have united at one of the world’s most famous harbours, and I can’t see that it could ever be replicated again in terms of location.

“If you had to put it on a scale, it’s the Burj Khalifa of Sydney,” explains Van Tuil.

The One Barangaroo development will stand at 275m tall. There is a limited supply of 82 residences, specifically two-, three-, four- and six-bedroom residences from floors 33 to 65. All residences are over-sized as one would expect with a premium product.

It is the country’s first fully-integrated, six-star hotel branded residences and is equipped with high-end facilities such as a hotel-style concierge service, residents-only pool deck, gymnasium, tennis courts, spa, steam room and sauna.

The property is surrounded by urban parks, the new Headland Park, the commercial bustle of International Towers, and the re-born Darling Quarter.

The property will provide residents with the best concierge service in Australia, as well as valet parking and access to all the amenities of a hospitality branded residence, says Van Tuil.

“The six-star service offering at Crown Residences at One Barangaroo is second to none, which can be invaluable to those from the Middle East, who are commonly seeking an overseas destination to escape the heat in the midst of summer for a few months,” continues Van Tuil.

“Residents can call ahead of their arrival and have everything prepared in advance, from clean bed sheets through to a restocked fridge, or even request a private chef to prepare a meal for them. After travelling from afar, residents can arrive knowing everything is taken care of.

 “Investors can work closely with our development team on customisations for their residences to create something unique and bespoke. We have also worked with clients to amalgamate more than one residence to create something that truly responds to their needs. The residences have beautiful high ceilings and provide ample living and dining space.  From stone and marble fittings, to furnishings and lighting, the Crown Residences holds appeal for all nationalities,” confides Van Tuil.



The ground-breaking building will be a sculptural form made of three petals that twists as it rises, designed by award-winning British architecture firm, Wilkinson Eyre. Each residence offers unique, discreet and optimised spaces. Crown Residences at One Barangaroo will leverage the world’s best practice sustainable building design.

Renowned international design company, Meyer Davis Studio Interiors, based in New York, is responsible for the interior and design for the project. Each of Meyer Davis’ unique floor plans and designs will create individuality, warmth, and a timeless style that is tailored to suit the architecture of this one-of-a-kind building.

Each residence will be stylishly appointed with furnishings crafted from premium materials that reflect the contemporary style of Crown Sydney. From state-of-the-art appliances to cool gleaming marble, and supple, inviting leather touches, the bespoke designs for each residence will create spaces that are opulent and luxurious.


Super services

Sydney offers a superior lifestyle to those looking at property overseas. It boasts some of the world’s best beaches and an ideal climate, coupled with a good healthcare and education system, further supported by a strong economy and stable political system.

Speaking further on why the property will appeal to UHNWIs and Millennials, Van Tuil says: “UHNWIs are continuously looking for that next level of luxury when looking to invest and branded residences provide trappings like super concierge and high levels of service that appeal to this desire. Being Australia’s first and only six-star branded residences, Crown Residences at One Barangaroo provides not just the perfect home, but an experience that cannot be rivalled anywhere else in Australia.

“For millennial investors, the high level six-star service and its efficiency will be the biggest attraction. Millennials are more globally-minded than previous generations, so a base that is equipped to meet every need gives them the freedom to easily come and go as they please.”

Highlighting the importance of Sydney as a key investment destination, Van Tuil says: “Sydney has fast become a global city, with direct flights to all other major destinations of business: the UAE, Singapore, the US and China, making it ever-more attractive to investors from overseas.

“Australia’s economic resilience, adaptability and 26-year record of steady growth provides a safe, low-risk environment in which to invest and do business, alongside a world-class education for younger generations looking to further their education.

“When it comes to waterfront property, there isn’t a location more distinguished than Sydney. According to Knight Frank’s Global Waterfront Report 2019, waterfront property in Sydney generates the highest premium in the world – at an astounding 89.3 percent. What’s more, harbour-side addresses fetch an uplift of 59.1 percent, illustrating that the location of Crown Residences at One Barangaroo couldn’t ask for a greater premium,” adds Van Tuil.

‘The Crown Residences at One Barangaroo is recalibrating Australia’s prime property market as a landmark set to change Sydney’s skyline forever,” she concludes.

Crown Residences at One Barangaroo is due for completion in early 2021 and residences start from US$6.7 million.
