Also attending the event were PAYCE's General Manager, Dominic Sullivan and Jessica Lane and from Sekisui House Australia, its CEO and Managing Director, Toru Abe and Chief Financial Officer, Kohji Fukano.

The public works project started today is part of an agreement, known as a Voluntary Planning Agreement (VPA), between the council and the developers.

    The works include:
  • Construction of two observation decks within River Park adjacent to the Parramatta River
  • Construction of a children's playground within Halvorsen Park
  • Landscaping and embellishment works within the Pocket Parks
  • Resurfacing, kerb and guttering, construction of a traffic island, drainage works and line marking of George Kendall Riverside Car Park
  • Pedestrian lighting between the George Kendall Riverside Car Park and Parramatta River along an existing shared path within the park

Improved community amenities for the broader community - Dominic Sullivan

PAYCE General Manager Dominic Sullivan said the work would provide improved community amenities for not only residents but the broader community.

"Our goal is to not just build very liveable apartments, but to develop new communities and improving local infrastructure and facilities is a very important element of that objective," he said.

"This location on the Parramatta River offers a stunning lifestyle and it is important that residents and the public can enjoy everything it has to offer.

"Parramatta City Council has shown a great willingness to negotiate an outcome that is a win for the local community and the project."

Excavation work ready for the construction of nine buildings on the site has been completed.

The project is due to be completed by the end of the next year.

Joining the Mayor was Sydney Olympic Park Authority CEO, Alan Marsh; Toru Abe, CEO and Managing Director of Sekisui House Australia; PAYCE General Manager, Dominic Sullivan and project representatives.

JEWEL is being developed jointly by leading Australian property investment companies, PAYCE and Sekisui House Australia.

The project sets a new benchmark in urban development and sits front and centre of the NSW Government's long-term plans for the entire Wentworth Point Peninsula.

Unparallelled community lifestyle on Sydney`s leading resort peninsula

PAYCE General Manager Dominic Sullivan said: "What we are constructing here is a glistening new iconic entry into a suburb now regarded as Sydney's leading resort peninsula with an unparallelled community lifestyle.

"Being the gateway to Sydney Olympic Park via Sydney Harbour which attracts over 10 million visitors a year, we had a vision to create something special and exciting," he said.

He said both project partners share a philosophy of cultivating a community orientated projects as evidenced by earlier developments in Wentworth Point such as The Waterfront, which was an entirely new approach to lifestyle.

"We assembled a world-class team of architects, designers and builders in the form of HDR | Rice Daubney Architects, who created the initial concept design, Stanisic Architects, TURNER Interior Architects, landscape designer, Context Landscapes and DASCO Australia as the construction partner to bring this latest development to Wentworth Point."

The development covers 10,430 square metres on the northern tip of Wentworth Point Peninsula and includes 256 apartments and 4,300 square metres of mixed use retail on ground level known as 'Pierside', which will accommodate restaurants, cafes and shops, a small supermarket and a childcare centre.

"The buildings are designed as three fingers reaching out to the water, casting a golden hue and allowing amazing views and light into the building," Mr Sullivan said.

Mr Sullivan said when the project is due to be completed in 2017, it will become a community hub where people can live, eat, relax and enjoy life whilst interacting with their community.

"We will continue to work closely with Auburn City Council and the Sydney Olympic Park Authority to ensure that this project delivers the very best in urban and community living," he said.
