The A-Z of living wellness
The A-Z of Living Wellness has been developed around the WELL v2 concepts incorporated into Portman on the Park, encompassing air, water, nourishment, light, movement, thermal comfort, sound, materials, mind, community and innovation to enhance mind, body and community wellness. Each concept has been considered through the lens of the Australian climate and environment, working with nature, not against it, to set a blueprint for cities of the future.
A is for AIR
Clean air is fundamental to human existence, influencing our health, productivity and overall state of wellbeing. Cross flow ventilation in the majority of apartments allows fresh air to circulate freely, reducing the need for air-conditioning always being on, a bonus for health and the planet.
B is for BELONGING
By offering places for residents to meet and get to know each other, Green Square helps to break down the anonymity of the city, fostering a sense of belonging. That warm sense of being part of something bigger, with a past, a present and a future, and there is a place for you within it.
C is for COMFORT and COMMUNITY
We recognise that comfort is personal. Windows made from performance glass provide thermal comfort and acoustic privacy, residents can return to a home designed with high end finishes. Public spaces including the library, aquatic centre^, child care centres and community hubs have been designed to encourage stronger connections between residents and visitors.
D is for DESIGN
From esteemed architects CO-AP in collaboration with Mirvac Design comes design that celebrates a unique provenance of Sydney modernism. Maximising light, space and airflow, each apartment reflects the rigour and crisp sophistication of the best in luxury design.
E is for ENTERTAINMENT
Let your creative juices flow at the award winning Joynton Avenue Creative Centre. Green Square’s dining precinct will feature some of Sydney’s favourite restaurants, while in the library you will find the cafe. Within the wider surrounds, The Cannery has a host of food, drink and design offerings and The Grounds of Alexandria keeps the vibe going with craft beers on tap and a produce driven menu.
F is for FITNESS
Achieve your fitness goals at the future Gunyama Park Aquatic and Recreation Centre^. Your home will be just a skip away to this state of the art centre with its 50m outdoor pool, 25m heated indoor pool and leisure pool, health and fitness centre and outdoor yoga deck and multipurpose sports field. Closer to home, the Drying Green^ will offer an invitation to step outdoors and get active.
G is for GROWTH
Work on your personal and professional growth, supported by environments that promote wellbeing and community. Less time commuting and more time communing with friends and family, brings its own reward at work and at home. Carefully considered floorplans are designed to adapt as you journey through different life stages so you can plan for the long term.
H is for HOME
An address to call your own; a space to be yourself. We understand there is nothing more important than this. With all the features of a traditional home, The Portman Collection is designed to feel truly yours. After all, home is where the heart is.
I is for INNOVATION and INTERNATIONAL
Mirvac and Landcom* introduce the first residential development in Australia to pursue a WELL v2 certification, addressing the impact of the built environment on physical, mental and community health. Internationalism is celebrated in one of Sydney’s most diverse, multicultural pockets of the city. In Green Square, global cuisines and customs create an exciting and dynamic cultural mix.
J is for JOY
The joy of nature right outside your window. Of knowing your barista by name and them knowing your brew. The joy of a friendly smile from a neighbour, or discovering like minded dog lovers live right next door. The building blocks for a joyful existence are being assembled in the City of Sydney’s first town centre to be designed in over a century.
K is for KNOWLEDGE
From kindergarten to year 6, the future proposed primary school^ will provide for the growing community of families. As well as proximity to Sydney’s leading high schools, universities and colleges, residents have ready access to a range of learning facilities at the award winning Green Square library.
L is for LIGHT
Apartments blessed with natural sunlight not only reduce energy demand, but have a positive effect on our mood. To align with our natural circadian rhythm, a customised smart lighting upgrade is available and produces warm white light of differing intensity allowing residents to tune in to their personal sleep wake cycle.
M is for MINDFUL, MOVEMENT and MATERIALS
Homes are tailored to improve wellbeing. With immediate access to Green Square’s park, the Drying Green^, and worldclass amenity, including the future Aquatic Centre^, it is easy for residents to walk and cycle as their preferred transport option. We consider the many elements that go into our buildings. We follow thorough procurement processes and quality control checks, to ensure only quality materials are used.
N is for NOURISHMENT
Nutrition and our overall wellbeing are undeniably linked. With access to an abundance of fresh food from independent cafes, grocers and restaurants, The Portman Collection’s residents will be able to nourish and care for themselves from the inside out.
O is for OUTLOOK
Views across the landscaped green of the future Drying Green^, and north facing windows framing the serene and leafy private residents’ courtyard, and if you are lucky, a city view, present a natural outlook to brighten any day and any mood.
P is for PARKSIDE
The Portman Collection offers some of the only apartments fronting the main avenue to the future Drying Green^ with its lush green expanse of lawn, shady trees, barbecues and places to picnic and play. This is apartment living with your very own big backyard. The anticipated park of approximately 6,200 sqm will form a balm for body and mind and a place to unwind and have fun.
Q is for QUALITY
For over 48 years Mirvac has enjoyed an unrivalled reputation for quality in design and construction. The Mirvac promise of quality and care in every little detail can be seen in landmark buildings across Australia, that attest to its expertise and experience.
R is for ROAM
From bars to supermarkets, restaurants to entertainment, Green Square is set to be humming with inviting establishments. Step out into a pocket of the city where all your needs are met, or venture to the nearby shopping meccas of Paddington and Surry Hills.
S is for SPACE and SOUND
Entertain friends and family at home with access to a stunning residents' courtyard or nestle into your home to enjoy the soothing sanctuary of your own making. Quiet time is treasured with external sounds from the street and neighbours minimised through well insulated windows, walls, floors and ceilings and the considered layout of bathrooms, bedrooms and living rooms.
T is for TIME
The greatest luxury of all. With fast connections to Sydney’s CBD, airport and a selection of universities, and the convenience of amenities at your front door, you can win back time for the people and activities you love most. This is your time. Live it.
U is for URBAN
This is urban living reimagined to focus on what really matters. People. From the wellbeing of the individual to the strength and resilience of the broader community, at Green Square we are creating an urban oasis fit for now and the future.
V is for VITALITY
Age is just a number when your living environment has the power to restore the vitality of youth. With mind and body in synch, energy levels are boundless, positivity flows and life beckons with infinite possibility. Call it chi, qi or vitality. The Portman Collection aims to offer a lifestyle that supports reaching your full potential. Not just living, but thriving.
W is for WATER
As vital to life as the air we breathe, water is a precious resource not to be wasted, nor taken for granted. In addition to water efficient appliances and fixtures, water filters will be included in kitchens to ensure cleaner water from the tap.
X is for XENIAL
To host is an art, and Green Square plans to do it well. A cosmopolitan melting pot of cultures, this is a welcoming place of inclusivity and belonging. Back home, residents can hope to find all the space they need to strengthen bonds over the dinner table.
Y is for YOU
Your sense of style, your way of living. The Portman Collection is designed with a sophisticated and minimal finish, meaning you can make your place your own. Tailored to your every need, this is a new kind of flexible, inner city living.
Z is for ZEN
