A visionary undertaking set to transform Gordon’s residential landscape, Altessa is a bold new address that reflects an urban sophistication and a design-conscious way of life. Renowned architects, Nettleton Tribe, have delivered a collection of three harmonious buildings which exude a sense of grandeur and presence, housing beautifully crafted one, two and three-bedroom apartments. aoyu
A unique ridgeline setting opens up sweeping views from every aspect of these perfectly planned apartments. Even from the lower levels, the leafy natural surrounds create a lush green backdrop to these refined residences. As the site cascades away at the rear, they gaze over the dense foliage of the Lane Cove River National Park to the south and to the Blue Mountains in the west. Sun streams in, bathing them in golden afternoon light. Many are set above the tree line, achieving a sense of vast open space.
Altessa is perfectly located at the gateway to Gordon and the apex of a number of important commercial centres, including Chatswood and the Macquarie Park business precinct. As a resident, this affords you easy access to the ultimate retail experiences, entertainment and amenities.
Head to Chatswood where you’ll find Westfield and Chatswood Chase for all of the fashion, specialty shops and department stores you could ask for. Alternatively, Macquarie Centre has all of your shopping needs covered along with a cinema complex and one of only two ice rinks in Sydney. Nearby you’ll find Macquarie University along with the state-of-the-art Macquarie University Hospital.
Life at Altessa is designed to be easy, with convenience integral to its appeal. It’s only a level 700m walk to Gordon train station, which takes you to Chatswood in just nine minutes, North Sydney in 23 minutes and Central in just 36 minutes, or utilise one of the many bus routes at your door, taking you to various reaches of Sydney.
Local schools, both private and public, are highly regarded, reflecting the family oriented nature of the area, with Gordon East Public, Pymble Ladies’ College, Knox Grammar, Ravenswood and St Pius X College just minutes away.
Altessa breathes new life into a prominent site, capitalising on its topography and aspect. Designed as a family, its three buildings feel intimate, with their varying heights creating a sense of scale. A complementary palette of external materials achieves a fine grain and detail which is a common theme throughout, with the rear building accessed via a dramatic open atrium space.
The project complements the leafy character of the area. Earthy sandstone and green walls create a landscaped podium from which the upper levels rise, with timber-look panelling, textured finishes, timber screens and glass creating visual interest.
Innovative design unlocks the hidden assets of the site that are not immediately evident from the ground.
Stunning panoramic views are spectacularly revealed, natural light is optimised and prevailing breezes are captured. A central communal courtyard garden ties the buildings together, creating a sanctuary and a focal point for community life as well as providing an aesthetically pleasing backdrop to the apartments.
Every fine detail has been carefully considered to achieve an air of understated sophistication and timeless elegance, enhanced by premium features and finishes.
The layouts are generous and perfectly planned, enhanced by appointments such as European oak floorboards. A choice of two colour schemes allows you to personalise your surroundings– ‘Luna’ in grey tones and ‘Solar’ in more neutral sandy shades. An abundance of clever storage spaces are found both internally and in the basement parking areas.
Clever design principles mean that many apartments enjoy a prized Northerly orientation, taking full advantage of this desirable aspect and harnessing sunshine throughout the day.
They encourage natural air-flow and excellent cross-ventilation, capturing summer breezes. North-facing apartments gaze towards the lush greenery of the Upper North Shore, taking in the tree-lined streets and the vast expanse of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
