I’ll admit I rolled my eyes when I heard Harris Park was dubbed the Surry Hills of the west. That’s a super trendy inner city suburb for those unfamiliar with Sydney. But checking out the display apartment for Charlie Parker, a boutique, residential tower in the leafy suburb of Harris Park, well it’s fair to say the suburb is getting cool!
Inspired by the art-deco era, the visually impactful, curved Charlie Parker building by Coronation Property is the brainchild of award-winning architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp (fjmt), while on the inside, interior styling is courtesy of Shannon Vos of VOSCREATIVE, the 2014 winner of The Block: Glasshouse.
With furnishings by GlobeWest, Shannon had raw luxury in mind when presented with his design brief, think tribal trends, rustic timbers and plenty of natural textures. “We have endeavoured to highlight the building’s beauty and pay homage to its strengths,” explains Shannon. “We have infused the interiors with subtle notes of playfulness and whimsy throughout, built upon excellent workmanship and the best in planning and design.”
Comprising of 111 apartments, Charlie Parker will span 22 storeys and will include an open-air pool and gym on the terrace level. Charlie Parker – aptly named by the two streets it is positioned on, Charles and Parkes Street — will also incorporate a high-end residents’ lounge, open-air pool, gymnasium, a relaxation area and landscaping by award-winning landscape designer Jamie Durie.
Harris Park is already known for its unique eat street, eclectic bars and cafes, as well as its superb connectivity. Charlie Parker is only minutes from Parramatta and Harris Park train stations, while the new light rail station for Harris Park will be situated directly across the road from the building.
Prices for apartments at Charlie Parker start from $475,000 for a one-bedroom suite, $567,000 for a one-bedroom residence, $785,000 for a two bedroom and $898,000 for three bedrooms, with two four-bedroom penthouses also available, with price on application.
The Charlie Parker display suite is now open Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 4pm, located at level 1, 8 Phillip Street, Parramatta.
