In the tightly held Sydney suburb of Darling Point, which seldom sees new residential offerings, the twenty-three new luxury residences at Fortis’ MONA offer unparalleled lifestyle possibilities. The award-winning MHNDU architects and lauded interior design team at Richards Stanisich have designed MONA with clear references to the early art deco apartment buildings throughout this prestigious locale. These residences have been carefully and creatively considered to elevate your day-to-day experiences.

MONA residences come in luxurious one, two, and three-bedroom options, each with a private external terrace or balcony. Some private terraces and balconies capture extraordinary views of Rushcutters Bay, the CBD skyline, and glimpses of the Sydney Harbour. All MONA residences boast large, portal-framed windows that welcome an abundance of natural light throughout each residence. 

One of Sydney’s most desirable suburbs

Moments from Rushcutters Bay and the Sydney Harbour foreshore, few locations rival Sydney’s Darling Point. The prestigious Elizabeth Bay and Double Bay suburbs neighbour Darling Point, and the Sydney CBD is just four kilometres away. MONA enjoys a setting surrounded by lush, tree-lined streets, heritage low-density apartment blocks, some of Sydney's most stately houses, and world-class educational centres including Ascham School and Sydney Grammar School. 

MONA residents will be in close proximity to Potts Point, the dynamic inner-Sydney suburbs of Paddington and Darlinghurst, and the iconic Bondi and Bronte beaches which are easily accessible via public transport options. Two yacht clubs and three waterfront parks, Yarranabbe, Mckell, and Rushcutters Bay, are also a stone's throw from the new MONA residences.

"This location benefits from its nearby neighbouring suburbs giving the best of both worlds – an energetic urban local energy (Potts Point) and Australia's most luxurious offerings (Woollahra and Double Bay) with the commercial convenience and easy access to Bondi Junction and the City. Rushcutters Bay Park and Marina create a great local amenity for locals and visitors alike," says a spokesperson for Fortis.

Art Deco motifs in a new residential icon

Consolidating Art Deco period design themes, each MONA residence embodies sheer artistic excellence. The team at Fortis, seasoned experts in luxury Sydney and Melbourne residential development, have collaborated with MHNDU Architects, Richards Stanisich for interiors, and Wyer & Co. for the landscape architecture at MONA. The product of this collaboration is a building poised to be an elegant residential icon, worthy of its awe-inspiring Darling Point location.

MONA residences boast over-sized floorplans with luxury fit-outs. Kitchens feature exquisite natural stone materiality and seamlessly integrated Miele and Fisher & Paykel appliances, with select residences featuring Sub Zero and Wolf appliances. Custom format engineered timber floorboards are fitted throughout the vast open-plan living spaces in each residence, and natural stone materiality is articulated throughout each bathroom. 

In addition to a contemporary take on Art Deco motifs, the design team for MONA have also been interested in exploring soft curve silhouettes. Curves are expressed throughout the structure of the MONA building, and in more intricate ways such as the double-bullnose edging and soft round strapping details in each kitchen island, and the tumble-stone floor tiles in bathrooms. Bathrooms also express metal-framed shower cubicle doors finished with a soft curve, and infilled with fluted glass evocative of Art Deco qualities.

Darling Point is surrounded by some of the nation's finest cultural and educational hubs, and the charms of vibrant local suburbs. Bus, ferry services, and Edgecliff railway station are all nearby MONA for effortless public transport into the Sydney CBD and suburbs. Richie's Café, Bei Amici Swiss-Italian eatery, Makizo Japanese restaurant, and Margaret restaurant are superb local favourites. The Gourmet Life grocer, Organic Food Markets, and Lizzie Bay Gourmet are also conveniently nearby. Locals can enjoy a range of activities in the area, such as a match of tennis at the Rushcutters Bay Tennis Centre.

MONA’s convenient location, luxurious design and attention to detail in finishes sees the project exude enduring quality, making these residences an excellent choice for owner occupiers and investors alike. 

The MONA display suite will be closing soon, and for a limited time Fortis are offering Stamp Duty Rebate on one and two-bedroom residences.

MONA project completion is expected in early 2024.
