Conceived by renowned architects Engelen Moore, Altair was sustainability developed, incorporating green technologies that reduces the buildings energy consumption. Winner of ‘the best residential block in the world’, at the 2001 World Architectural Awards, Altair is a structural piece of artwork and today, one of the most desired residential buildings in Sydney.
The façade is a crisp white concrete structure based on strong sculptural lines with deep-set balconies, horizontal and vertical brises soleil, and blue-black lift cores. These attributes come together to create a highly textured exterior, enveloped with windows – inviting natural light into every corner of the spacious interior.
Delivered to meet a demand for inner city living close to the water, Altair was constructed with a broad market scope in mind. Built over a multi-level podium with commercial space and a three storey car park, the 16 level apartment tower comprises 139 elegant apartments, from compact studios to spacious, efficiently planned one to three bedroom residences; including two spectacular penthouses. Servicing the hundreds of residents, the apartment incorporates a 25-metre heated pool and two gyms.
Situated in an elevated position over Rushcutters Bay, Altair presents picturesque 360° views over the city, harbour and surrounding suburbs. To the North, residents have an outlook over the Harbour Bridge and Opera House right around to the Heads, and South, views over Paddington, Surry Hills and Botany Bay, around to the Pacific Ocean to the East.
Altair offers ease of access into Sydney CBD only 5 minutes’ train journey away, in addition to the many eastern suburb beaches all within a 30 minute commute. Ideally located on the doorstep of Potts Point and Darlinghurst, known as ‘restaurant central’, residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to coffee, cafés and a selection of medium to highbrow eateries and bars.
