171 GLOUCESTER STREET THE ROCKS
Occupying a coveted position in The Rocks historic quarter, this will be one of Sydney city's finest and most exclusive residential developments.

Comprising 122 grand tower apartments over 30 levels (The Stamford Residences) and five luxury terraces (The Reynell Terraces), these consummate residences will be status CBD living at its best. With an anticipated start in late 2007 and completion date forecast for late 2010, this is a rare opportunity to share in SydneyÂ’s future and its historic past.

Making the most of this extraordinary location, the views will sweep across the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, the North Shore and Lavender Bay, Observatory Hill, Walsh Bay and on, to the Blue Mountains.

Prestige is reflected in every aspect, from the elegant contemporary architecture to the unprecedented spaciousness and luxury of the meticulously designed interiors. High rise living at The Stamford Residences is taken to a whole new level: rich marbles, handsome granites, fine woods and veneers, solid block, hand laid parquetry and luxurious, 55oz wool carpets all convey a refined ease with sophisticated, timeless style.

Designed from the inside out, expansive rooms give way to seamless terraces, balconies or loggias, blurring the lines between interior and exterior space. Dual aspect views from most apartments and generous ceiling heights up to 2.7 metres (9 foot) provide an added graciousness to the classical dimensions, which include one, two and three bedroom layouts. Most will also offer separate studies or media rooms and all residents will have access to a shared rooftop garden and BBQ area, a luxurious private indoor pool and gym, and dedicated parking.

From the elegance of its whisper-quiet Gloucester Street address to the opulence of its penthouses, every aspect of this development has the residents' comfort in mind.

Stamford Land Corporation is at the helm of this landmark development, fresh from its success with the Stamford Marque in nearby Kent Street. Kann Finch Group has provided the architectural strength, with Burley Katon Halliday and Thomas Hamel honing the interior design and decoration. St Hilliers Contracting will see the project to fruition.
This unique landmark will create history as the last grand residential tower permitted in The Rocks - Australia's first neighbourhood. It is a privileged opportunity that will not present itself again.
