A brand new build, ready for you to complete the interiors to your very own specifications. A concrete shell, both floors are the only commercial units for this building, ripe for development. The location is just one road up from the very busy, bustling Long street, so near enough to lots of foot traffic, and yet set a little apart from the Victorian architecture, in a brand new contemporary design.
Expansive in size and setting, with views of the High Court buildings from the first floor balcony and foot traffic on the street. A central location, with good parking options in the basement or the street or for any of the residents in the building or other nearby buildings, such as the Pepper Club, or employees of the commercial blocks along these roads, to access on foot.
There are three commercial units of 507m² + 210m² + 205m², totalling 922 square metres. There are three entrances, one on the ground floor on Loop street, and two staircases situated one on either of the streets for the first floor, as it is situated on the corner.
Ideal for a combined restaurant and grocery shopping centre, as there is a need for this in the area especially for residents of the block.
There is also a balcony on the first floor which would be an excellent outdoor seating area for the restaurant.
The Sentinel is a mixed use development in the central part of the city. The building has a gross construction area of 16,000m2, the site being 900m2.
There are two levels of retail due to the steep aspect of the location, with two basement parking levels and six stories of parking above the retail totaling 125 parking bays.
The remaining 11 stories accommodate the 96 apartments – bachelors, one, two bed and 3 bed duplex penthouses. The building totals 19 stories in height.
The concept developed from long discussions with the local authority, where the zoning scheme calls for a ziggurat type from, which the architects, as well as Heritage Committee, felt would be detrimental to the city scape and consequently two years were spent obtaining certain departures to try and limit the feeling of the ziggurat.
There is a distinct two story feel at the street level to respond to the scale of the existing fabric of the surrounding properties. There is a podium of 24m before the setback of the main structure of the residential block.
There was also a conscious effort to try and fragment the facades by layering the building both with the setbacks, and facades of sliding shutters, and louvred pergolas.
