The sky is the limit for a development in the northern suburbs of Sydney that could see the city become the world’s third largest.
The development would be called Lakeview Condominiums and the owners are hoping it will transform the way residents are treated in the city.
The owners of the development are from the city of Los Angeles and they’ve set their sights on the South Coast of Sydney.
“The city of LA is the biggest and most beautiful city in the world, but what they’ve failed to do is bring their people together,” said Chris Hill.
“They have a different way of thinking.
They’ve failed on the north side, but they’ve succeeded on the south side.”
Hill is a real estate agent who owns property in the LA area and works for one of the most famous real estate firms in the area.
He’s been involved in the development of the Lakeview condos since 2015 and says he’s had his fair share of challenges.
“In LA, there are so many different kinds of buildings that are built around a central location,” he said.
“One of the problems is that there are too many different types of apartments.”
You can’t just say, ‘We’ll build this one, and this one is the one.’
“That’s what LA has done with the condos, and they’re not necessarily the best, but that’s how they’ve gone about it.”
Hill said he’s not the only one.
“There are a lot of other developers who are in the same boat,” he added.
“It’s a bit of a problem.
You can’t do it all at once, so it’s really, really hard to plan.”
Hill has been working on the project for the past year and it’s been completed in time for the Sydney Olympics in August 2018.
“We have to make sure that the whole community is engaged in this project, but we don’t have to be the ones to do that,” he explained.
“This project is about making sure that there’s a connection between the residents of the city and the developers who’ve put this on the table.”
Hill says Lakeview condo owners will have a choice of either living in the luxury apartment or living in their own townhouse.
“If you have a family that lives in a townhouse, you can’t really be the only family living there,” he noted.
“But if you have to have a car, you’ll have to drive a long way to get to the lake.”
Lakeview condos are planned to be located in the north of Sydney, close to the Sydney CBD.
