Wollongong is a city set along some of the most beautiful coastline in Australia, within 90 minutes of Sydney and adjacent to National Parks and State Forests. Dramatic sandstone cliffs frame the landscape and cradle the city, providing a lush green backdrop to our golden beaches and excellent surf.
Within this natural beauty, a dynamic and vibrant city is awakening, with world class coffee, fantastic dining and entertainment. A number of wonderful Festivals have grown into highly regarded events, including the Illawarra Folk Festival, the Yours and Owls Music Festival, Viva La Gong Cultural Festival, as well as numerous art and design, food, and farmers’ markets throughout the city.
The increased number of small bars are patronised by the growing urban population. They are the living rooms of the apartment dwellers where friends are met and guests entertained.
Ranked in the top 2% of universities in the world, University of Wollongong provides high quality research, undergraduate and postgraduate study options. With excellent hospitals and allied health services, Wollongong is ideally placed to cater to a range of age groups, from young families to older “empty nesters”. Because of Wollongong’s enviable lifestyle quality, excellent schools and health care, and direct accessible transport links to Sydney makes it a desirable location for living and for business.
Your Sanctuary in the City
PARQ on Flinders is BRDB’s latest key development on one of the most significant sites in Wollongong. Situated at the northern gateway to the city centre, the residential complex is in walking distance of the beaches and the entertainment precinct and a short drive from the university.
Designed as four residential towers around a large internal, landscaped, park. This substantial park at podium level is the size of 4 basketball courts providing a range of outdoor spaces for family gatherings and activity spaces within this urban village. PARQ on Flinders creates a community with all the benefits of inner city living only metres from the best dining in Wollongong.
A green building with substantial landscaping at ground level framing the site on its three street frontages. Green walls on the large north facing façade filter the natural ventilation through the car park levels. Roof gardens continue the verdant theme capping the residential towers with a total area landscaped area the size of 7 tennis courts. All the landscaped common areas are sustained by rainwater collected and reused on site.
The Council has an ambition for Wollongong to be an iconic city. We are excited that the Gateway project sits comfortably in its context and makes a significant contribution to this goal. The Wollongong campus is a stone’s throw from Parq on Flinders, as well as the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music.
