As the ultimate haven for young families, AURA by Aqualand was thoughtfully designed with the needs of modern families in mind. The award-winning North Sydney development comprises the most spacious apartments on offer in the prestigious suburb, with oversized open-plan layouts, premium fixtures and fittings, and ample storage in each residence.

What’s more, AURA provides the ultimate in lifestyle and convenience with its unrivalled on-site facilities. As residents, you and your family will have exclusive access to a world-class Etymon Concierge, a pool of Tesla share vehicles available to hire, a swimming pool and gym, and a rooftop Sky Deck with dining and entertainment facilities. With its very own two-level hospitality precinct, delectable dining, a bakery, and an artisanal providore are just an elevator ride away.

Yet, even with so much to offer within its walls, it is perhaps AURA’s location that truly makes it a family haven, as just across the road will be the brand-new and prestigious Reddam House North Shore school.

The state-of-the-art school next door

Located in the heart of North Sydney, AURA positions its residents moments from a wealth of lifestyle amenities and convenience options, including beautiful parklands, curated retail, and convenient transportation.

Top-rated schools are also nearby, making AURA the intelligent choice for families. With the brand-new Reddam House North Shore steps away, AURA is truly a family haven.

“The brand-new Reddam House high-rise campus will be ideally situated directly across the street, offering private co-education from kindergarten to year 12,” said Alex Adams, Aqualand’s Head of Sales and Marketing.

“It is considered one of Sydney’s most prestigious high schools.”

The globally renowned Inspired is behind the curation of this new Reddam House campus. The world-leading, co-education, non-denominational group of premium schools educates over 85,000 students across 110+ schools on six continents. Utilising the best educational practices from all corners of the globe, they will now bring this expertise to Sydney’s North Shore.

Reddam House North Shore will be the sister school to Reddam House Sydney – the number one independent school in New South Wales based on 2023 and 2022 HSC results. The brand-new North Sydney vertical school will be located in the historic and iconic Harry Seidler-designed Simsmetal House, accommodating up to 1,350 students across eight storeys.

Australian-owned construction and development group, Built, will be on deck to upgrade and transform the building into a K-12 campus. The vast 9,000 sqm space will boast premium facilities built for modern education, including a stunning roof terrace with Sydney Harbour views, outdoor terraces with play areas, multiple libraries, five state-of-the-art science labs, music studios with practice rooms, sports hall and auditorium, and more.

Nadim M Nsouli, the Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Inspired, said, “This exceptional new school in North Shore represents our dedication to Australia and our commitment to building on the successes we have achieved in the country so far.

“Students will uniquely benefit from global exchange and summer camp programmes and opportunities, that, when coupled with the international curriculum and initiatives we have in place, instil in students a heightened understanding and appreciation of their fellow global citizens, equipping them for success in both their academic pursuits and future careers within an ever-evolving global landscape.”

Reddam House North Shore will open in time for Term 1 in 2025, while AURA will be move-in ready mid this year.

Reddam House North Shore is a state-of-the-art vertical school across the road from AURA.


House-sized luxury

When it comes to apartment living, families with children are now comparable in number with singles and couples. Aqualand has taken this into consideration when planning and designing AURA, even going as far as decreasing the number of residences from 448 to 371 in order to expand floorplans.

“The standard size for a two-bedroom apartment in the area is 80 sqm, with many in AURA’s measuring 95 sqm, plus a wintergarden, making them well over 100 sqm in total – perfect for families,” said Alex Adams.

“No other projects in North Sydney offer these well-oversized apartments.

“We did this to provide residents with the luxury of space and privacy.

“We knew families would particularly appreciate this.”

That they did. Family buyers at AURA have been providing feedback on their brand-new homes, and they love the oversized apartments.

Alex said that AURA’s family-friendly design had been a big draw for families, with each home including ample storage in the kitchens, living spaces, and bedrooms – enough to accommodate a growing family with school-age children, including room for computers, textbooks, large musical instruments, and sporting equipment.

“Buyers also appreciate that apartments have adaptable spaces that can be used as study areas,” he detailed.

“The winter gardens provide an adaptable space suitable for play areas, nurseries, or study zones – or when opened, expand the living spaces.”

In the heart of North Sydney

AURA’s central location has also attracted family buyers, providing lifestyle perfection in the form of convenience.

“Being positioned in the heart of North Sydney’s prestigious schools is a major unique selling point for family buyers, as children are able to conveniently and safely walk to school,” said Alex.

With the new Sydney Metro Victoria Cross station adjacent to AURA, in addition to the flurry of trains, buses, ferries, and pedestrian and cycling paths at the doorstep, you will be seamlessly connected to more of Sydney’s best.

“It’s incredibly important especially for working parents needing to commute to work and children often having to take several public transport services to and from school,” affirmed Alex.

AURA is just a 1.3km walk to the Harbour Bridge. Click here to learn more.

With AURA to be move-in ready mid this year and Reddam House North Shore set to open in time for the 2025 school year, there is no better time to secure your place in this family-friendly haven.

One-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom residences are still available at AURA, with one-bedders priced from $1,350,000.
