Set on a prominent corner site in a heritage conservation area , Urbico Glebe reinterprets the heritage typology into an exemplar for co-living accommodation.
Consisting of 33 compact yet high quality self-contained studio apartments, a commercial tenancy and a rooftop terrace with city skyline views, the development caters to both the nearby Sydney University as well as the growing and varied demand for inner city living.
The masonry massing is articulated through circulation spaces, screening and fenestration suggestive of the surrounding terraces, whilst the white face brick incorporates a striking curved brick corner creating a strikingly contemporary façade.
Set to become the flagship offering for Co-living market leaders, UKO, Urbico Glebe has been described by Rhys Williams, Director of Veriu Group as
‘ currently the best example of a high quality, intelligently designed, commercially successful co-living development in the Australian market. This will serve as a the benchmark for future developments in the space and will ensure that Australia is well regarded as a genuine opportunity for global institutional investors to further enhance this space. ‘
