  • Resurfacing, kerb and guttering, construction of a traffic island, drainage works and line marking of George Kendall Riverside Car Park
  • Construction of two observation decks within River Park adjacent to the Parramatta River
  • Landscaping and embellishment works within the Pocket Parks
  • Construction of a children's playground within Halvorsen Park

Improved amenities for the broader community - Dominic Sullivan

PAYCE General Manager Dominic Sullivan said the work would provide improved community amenities for not only residents but the broader community.

"This location on the Parramatta River offers a stunning lifestyle and it is important that residents and the public can enjoy everything it has to offer.

"Parramatta City Council has shown a great willingness to negotiate an outcome that is a win for the local community and the project."

"Our goal is to not just build very liveable apartments, but to develop new communities and improving local infrastructure and facilities is a very important element of that objective," he said.

With the project due for completion by the end of the next year, excavation work ready for the construction of nine buildings on the site has already been completed.



Wentworth Point, Sydney:

Mayor turns the first earth on the new PAYCE development site at Wentworth Point

To mark the commencement of construction on the new JEWEL Apartments, the Mayor of Auburn, Clr Ronney Oueik, arrived today to turn the first sod of ceremonial earth.

The iconic gateway development project, Jewel is the latest apartment development project from PAYCE.

PAYCE`s latest apartment project – the Jewel at Sydney Olympic Park

Joining the Mayor was Sydney Olympic Park Authority CEO, Alan Marsh; Toru Abe, CEO and Managing Director of Sekisui House Australia; PAYCE General Manager, Dominic Sullivan and project representatives.

The project sets a new benchmark in urban development and sits front and centre of the NSW Government's long-term plans for the entire Wentworth Point Peninsula.

JEWEL is being developed jointly by leading Australian property investment companies, PAYCE and Sekisui House Australia.

Unparallelled urban re-development on Sydney`s leading resort peninsula.

PAYCE General Manager Dominic Sullivan said: "We had a vision to create something special and exciting, with Sydney Harbour attracting more than 10 million visitors a year, this site is a gateway to the whole of Sydney Olympic Park,"

"What we are constructing here, with potential for an unparallelled community lifestyle, is a glistening new iconic entry into a leading suburb currently regarded as Sydney's resort peninsula," he said.

Both project partners share a philosophy of cultivating community orientated projects. The Collaborative efforts of previous projects are represented by the functional luxury of The Waterfront in Wentworth Point, which presented an entirely new approach to contemporary inner city lifestyle.

"We assembled a world-class team of architects, designers and builders in the form of HDR | Rice Daubney Architects, who created the initial concept design, Stanisic Architects, TURNER Interior Architects, landscape designer, Context Landscapes and DASCO Australia as the construction partner to bring this latest development to Wentworth Point."

"The buildings are designed as three fingers reaching out to the water, casting a golden hue and allowing amazing views and light into the building," Mr Sullivan said.

The development includes 256 apartments and 4,300 square metres of mixed use retail on ground level known as 'Pierside', which will accommodate restaurants, cafes and shops, a small supermarket and a childcare centre. The whole development covers an area of 10,430 square metres on the northern tip of Wentworth Point Peninsula.

"We will continue to work closely with Auburn City Council and the Sydney Olympic Park Authority to ensure that this project delivers the very best in urban and community living," he said.

Mr Sullivan said when the project is due to be completed in 2017, it will become a community hub where people can live, eat, relax and enjoy life whilst interacting with their community.
