Central Element submits DA for landmark Coogee project

Central Element is pleased to announce the submission of an exciting new development at Oberon St, Coogee.
12/06/2019

The site currently contains a single-level residential house and a two-storey residential flat building. The proposal recommends a boutique residential building comprising 16 units over 4 levels, with architecture by MHN Design Union (MHNDU).

The addition of the development to Central Element’s portfolio is in line with Central Element’s “People Shaped Property” philosophy.

“At Central Element, we focus on delivering ‘people-shaped properties’ that are designed with our customers in mind, while also providing superior architecture for the streetscape and the broader community. Coogee definitely exhibits this mindset well, and the development will retain the existing art deco building onsite,” says Central Element’s Development Director, Nathan Chivas.

The site has a rich and interesting past, with the existing building part of Coogee’s “Art Deco Walk” – a trail that explores buildings that illustrate the Art Deco architecture so popular in the 20s and 40s.

With the newly proposed property, Central Element will create a prestigious development of luxury and indulgence, whilst still staying true to the relaxed lifestyle and art deco aesthetic that is synonymous with Coogee.


Staying to true Coogee’s relaxed aesthetic


Under the proposal, the design will be contemporary, yet remain faithful to the site by maintaining a large proportion of the art deco façade.

The building’s exterior design will feature timber and vertical screening with planting while existing brick features will be enhanced with natural concrete and profiled metals.

Paramount to the proposed scheme is the quality of communal open space, with outlooks from apartments being prioritised. Furthermore, a unique and characterful architectural identity will come through the juxtaposition of the retained features and contemporary architectural form.

For Chivas, the development will be a positive addition to the area.

“I have no doubt that the proposal will add to the rich culture and liveability of the Coogee neighbourhood. As Sydney’s population continues to grow, so too does the demand for spacious and efficient living spaces in beachside suburbs like Coogee.”
