ICON CGI cutaway

Frasers Property Australia launches last planned building with on-site event

It's taken 15 years for Discovery Point to transform from vision to reality and with Icon - the last residential building planned - just released, those interested in the Frasers Property Australia community can experience the actual sights and sounds of the locale instead of relying on scale models, glossy brochures or website tours.

The real-life touch has helped generate very strong interest in the wide selection of Icon apartments, with a recent VIP event in the Discovery Point sales centre being well attended by a variety of buyers from different walks of life.

But there’s growing recognition that time is running out to secure a new lifestyle on the Cooks River waterfront with the convenience of an on-site train station. The variety of apartments in the prestigious Icon building start at $550,000, which is proving a strong drawcard – including for first home buyers.

Icon will rise higher than any other building in the community, with one bedroom apartments priced from $673,000 to $750,000, two bedroom apartments from $840,000 to $1,050,000 and three bedroom apartments from $1,060,000 to $1,375,000. 

Potential buyers and residents were especially impressed with Icon’s features, finishes and apartment layouts at the VIP event, says Nigel Edgar, General Manager - NSW Residential, Frasers Property Australia. 

“The feedback from our VIPs was extremely positive with the one bedroom apartments in particular striking a chord with our guests,” says Mr Edgar. 

“Icon will be a prestigious building and it’s no surprise young people are being drawn to this statement opportunity within a truly connected, sophisticated and modern urban community in a freshly revived pocket of Sydney.”

Designed by award winning architectural firm GroupGSA, the name Icon is particularly fitting as the building will bring a visually distinctive and striking presence to the Discovery Point skyline. 

Rising 22 storeys, the building will feature an elegant, slim-line silhouette that will create a sleek, streamlined appearance. Glass louvered winter gardens on its western and southern facades will provide privacy, amenity and originality to the structure. 

Icon will include a variety of recreational facilities for residents such as an expansive outdoor BBQ area on its podium level, to be highlighted by a brilliant vertical garden. On the inside, residents will have the convenience of a media room, gym and swimming pool.

Located just 10km from the CBD and 3km from Sydney Airport, Icon’s individual apartment floorplans have been designed to incorporate clean open plan living and the building’s orientation maximises the views and makes the most of natural light and ventilation. 

This month, the award winning development won the Mixed-Use Development category at the 2016 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) NSW Awards for Excellence and ealier in the year the development won the Masterplanned Development category at the 2016 Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) National Awards for Excellence. The awards highlight innovation, sustainability, industry leadership and recognise excellence in urban development across Australia.  

In 2015, Discovery Point was also awarded the Sustainable Development Award at the UDIA NSW Awards for Excellence and also the award in the Masterplanned Development category. 

Icon is registered for a Green Star – Multi Unit Residential Design As Built rating, and Frasers Property is targeting a 5 star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia.
