It’s stood as one of Pyrmont’s longest-standing landmarks for more than a century, watching Sydney evolve and expand as it cemented itself as a world-class city.

Now, the heritage-listed red brick building at Darling Island is set to be home to a luxurious new apartment development featuring 46 freehold residences.

Built between 1904 and 1912, the Royal Edward Victualling Yard, or the REVY, was the first Royal Yard in the southern hemisphere, servicing the Royal Australian Navy for more than 100 years.

The original building, No 8 REVY, is one of the few surviving narrow vertical warehouse designs in Sydney.

This has created a unique opportunity for the architects behind the project, PTW Architects, to convert the site into a one-of-a kind apartment complex at one of Sydney’s most exclusive addresses, all the while working to retain the structure’s legacy.

“Darling Island is one of the most exciting pieces of land in Sydney and this development by Aqualand will create an opportunity for those looking to enjoy a luxury lifestyle on the prestigious Sydney Harbour foreshore,” General Manager of Aqualand, Wayne Xiong says.


“Over the next four years, this will become one of the most sophisticated and attractive residential areas in Australia.”

Selling through CBRE, buyers have the option of two, three of four bedroom apartments within ‘The Revy’, with a range of configurations to suit every taste and lifestyle, spread across eight convenient levels.

If this development wasn’t already unique enough, each apartment has views out to the east and the west, meaning you could watch the sunrise with a coffee from one room, and sit back with a glass of pinot noir while it sets in another.

And while the word luxurious gets thrown around a lot when it comes to apartment developments, The Revy is quite possibly the definition of this word; each apartment comes with its own gold-plated key, while private water-taxis connect from the quay side to Barangaroo and The Rocks.

Inside, parquetry floors complement stone kitchens with stark white cabinetry, splashes of gold line each room, and grand marble bathrooms all combine to create a sophisticated blend of modern elegance with opulence and class.


Each resident has access to a rooftop terrace, 25 metre pool, sundeck, dining and entertainment area designed by with landscaping and landscaping by Daniel Baffsky of 360 Degrees.

Panoramic and unobstructed views of Sydney’s iconic harbour, city skyline and Harbour Bridge surround the building, while the CBD, Darling Harbour and The Star Casino are within walking distance.
