Arguably one of the most sought-after places to live in one of our country’s most popular cities, downtown Sydney is teeming with buyers looking for an energetic and edgy address that makes the most of what the city has to offer. That’s where Downtown comes in. Located in Sydney’s lively southern suburb of Zetland, Downtown is the latest apartment project from award-winning developer Deicorp. 

With its current stage nearing completion meaning residents can move in next year, Downtown provides a great opportunity for home buyers looking to embrace Sydney’s inner-city lifestyle while still being far enough away to unplug from the hustle and bustle. It doesn’t hurt to have a 2024 move-in date either!

Downtown is conveniently located 10 minutes from Sydney’s CBD and a short stroll from East Village Shopping Centre and Green Square train station. Sydney’s domestic and international airport is also less than 10 minutes away. This central location affords residents at Downtown a lifestyle of true convenience – a rarity for many new home buyers in Sydney.

Rob Furolo, executive manager of corporate communications at Deicorp, shares his thoughts on the project, saying, “We’re seeing an acceleration of enquiries and sales at Downtown as we approach completion of Stage 1. 

“Buyers like the fact they can start their property ownership journey soon, and not have to keep paying rent!

“They’re also drawn to the architectural detail within the Downtown project that will ensure a private and secure village atmosphere with walkable streets and beautiful landscaping, all within easy reach of cafes, restaurants and good shopping,” he said.

Comprised of four unique buildings that are linked via laneways, Downtown creates a village-style atmosphere at street level - the perfect spot to meet friends for a meal or a casual drink after work. For those who prefer to venture a little further afield, Green Square lies only a short eight-minute walk from Downtown. Recently approved for a $540 million upgrade, the square will boast a new library, parks, playgrounds, an aquatic centre, a childcare centre, and plaza upon completion.

As for other amenities, Zetland and its surrounding suburbs offer a variety of dining options right on your doorstep. Try Yulli’s in Surry Hills or The Grounds of Alexandria for a more traditional dining experience. For something more casual, The Tramsheds or the Zetland Hotel are also great options. 

If you’re looking for fitness and recreation options nearby, Gunyama Park sits directly opposite Downtown. The aquatic and recreation centre provides world-class facilities where residents can take time out to relax with a yoga class or join one of the many swim and exercise programs on offer.

If the beach is more your thing, Sydney’s iconic Bronte Beach is a short 20-minute drive from Downtown. Alternatively, Bondi Beach is also only a couple of bus stops away. 

For residents who take their sport seriously, enjoy teeing off at Moore Park Golf Course or The Royal Sydney Gold Club in Rose Bay. Prefer a day at the races? Nearby Randwick Racecourse is a perfect spot to enjoy a flutter on the horses or a day out with friends and family. Footy fans won’t miss out at Downtown either, with Sydney’s historic SCG easily accessible for residents who follow the cricket in summer and the AFL in winter.

Amenities aside, Downtown’s interiors aim to meet the needs of its residents while simultaneously exceeding all expectations. The generously sized apartments are split over two levels and include off-street access. An extensive selection of floorplans also provides buyers with an opportunity to select an apartment layout that works best for them and their lifestyle. 

Each apartment is sophisticated and functional, featuring spacious living areas, engineered timber floors, gourmet kitchen cabinetry, polished stone benchtops, Smeg stainless steel appliances, built-in wardrobes, and high-quality carpet in all bedrooms.

Enjoy sun-drenched mornings and balmy evenings at home with comfortable outdoor spaces that are an extension of Downtown’s stylish interiors. Common rooftop gardens create a sense of community, providing a perfect spot to meet with neighbours or host friends and family for a barbeque. You’ll find that with a home like this, even the most polite guests will overstay their welcome.

Collaborating on the inner-city project, architects MHNDU, Architectus, and BVN created a different look and feel for each of the buildings at Downtown. From the street, the distinct features of each building ensure they stand out in their own right but come together cohesively to create the sought-after inner-city precinct.

There are only 61 apartments currently for sale at Downtown, ranging in size from one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom options, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to live only 4km from Sydney’s CBD.
