Frasers Property have been rapidly developing their Hamilton Reach master planned community over recent years with Riverlight East launching in mid-2018. Riverlight is a multi-tower luxury residential apartment development located to the western edge of the community. It is afforded open river views to the south and enjoys direct access to Northshore Riverside Park, Riverwalk, local café and ferry terminal. It boasts a generous and vibrant landscape, reflective of its riverside location and commensurate to its benchmark high quality living experience, that flows seamlessly from the public entry park to the communal garden areas and private courtyards.
The landscape design has been inspired by the ‘ebb and flow’ of the riverside context to craft a diverse array of landscape ‘rooms’ to address all aspects of daily life including a 20m swimming pool, covered BBQ and outdoor dining structures, yoga lawn, sensory gardens, atrium gardens, intimate lawn pockets surrounded by lush gardens and open lawn areas to interface with the tree lined streetscape. The attention to detail is exquisite with the clever use of salvaged wharf timbers restored for use in shade structures, ‘totem’ sculptural installations and informal seating elements. All aspects of riverside living have been accommodated with the inclusion of purpose-built kayak storage and wash down facility.
Lat27 has enjoyed long-term involvement at Hamilton Reach with Riverlight forming one of the most significant riverside instalments to date to complement the recently completed neighbouring developments at Atria, Newport, Keelson and Riverhomes.
