Abadeen Group has an incredible reputation as a property developer, having delivered numerous outstanding developments over the past two decades, focusing on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. Similarly, architect Koichi Takada has received multiple international awards, most recently the 2021 New York Architzer A+Firm Awards. 

Bringing everything expected from these renowned firms, Abadeen Group now offers Koyo, designed by Koichi Takada and situated at the heart of Sydney’s Lower North Shore, Crows Nest. This boutique development of only 27 one, two and three-bedroom apartments is a visionary landmark - offering you a rare opportunity to own an architectural masterpiece in an enviable postcode. 

In line with architectural principles of healthier living, Koyo is a hidden, leafy sanctuary inspired by the changing colours of autumn. The tranquil development offers an escape, tucked away in a quiet cul de sac within the vibrant suburb of Crows Nest - harmoniously balancing natural elements with a host of urban amenities.


Handcrafted with an artisan’s eye



“Curved balconies and artfully designed overlapping terraces create a holistic aesthetic that settles the building into the local streets.”

Inside and out, Koyo embodies Koichi Takada’s philosophy of simple lines, an expressive material palette and signature organic forms. From the streetscape, the gentle curves of the facade pay homage to the nearby harbour bays, while the interiors offer an elegant canvas to inject your personality. 

Designed for downsizers and growing families, Koyo offers ample storage, spacious layouts and a choice of luxurious features that add a touch of opulence - without any of the pretension. These include show-stopping stone-surround fireplaces, chic in-built bars and crafted timber study nooks that are sure to elevate your work-from-home days. In addition, all homes offer secure parking, and many feature a dedicated study room and courtyard. 

All Koyo residences are elegantly appointed with premium finishes and inclusions such as natural stone benchtops, timber flooring, high-end V-ZUG European appliances, and ducted reverse cycle air conditioning. Regardless of the configuration, Koyo’s larger than average floor plans ensure you will never feel you are lacking in space. 


True connectivity in the heart of Crows Nest


Backed by Abadeen Group’s extensive experience in Sydney’s Lower North Shore, Koyo offers the ultimate lifestyle upgrade. Rated one of the most liveable neighbourhoods year after year, Crows Nest is a suburb like no other. 

Ideally located only 5km from Sydney CBD, Koyo’s surroundings beautifully balance urban amenities and modern conveniences with lush, leafy surrounds. Within this welcoming village atmosphere, you will find a host of delectable restaurants, cafes, artisan providores and wine bars, including Luho, Johnny Bird and Garfish. The development is also equidistant from Cammeray Village and the North Sydney business hub - offering even more amenities mere moments from home and demonstrating Abadeen Group’s focus on enhancing liveability. 


“With a focus on creating beautifully lasting spaces that integrate with their location and community, Abadeen’s consumer-driven approach to development is backed by the strength of our people, partnerships and in-depth understanding of the Australian property market. It is important that our developments are carefully designed for the people that will live within our buildings and communities. This philosophy is always at the forefront as we embark on our development journey.”
