New Life Ultimo’s architecture is a blend of traditional forms and modern detail, fusing contemporary design elements with traditional craftsmanship. At the lower levels, heritage-inspired brick creates an organic look and feel in keeping with the neighbouring Victorian terrace rows and warehouses that once dotted Harris Street.
By contrast, the upper levels seem to ‘float’ above the base – its linear form defined by metallic clad walls, bronzed screens, vast expanses of glass and recessed balconies. Borrowing elements from the precinct’s industrial and residential terraced history, New Life Ultimo’s innovative, sympathetic and eye-catching design is refreshingly unique in spirit and character.
Fusing Ultimo’s historic character with its new modern context, the raw beauty and authentic character of the homes has shaped some of this city’s most stylish residences. Designed as urban sanctuaries, the apartments are an uplifting retreat from the precinct buzz below. They marry luxury and comfort to produce striking signature homes.
Quality shines through in the beautifully realised spaces and exquisite finishes. Everywhere you look you’ll find something to please the eye. Their thoughtful contemporary design and crafted simplicity ensure you can always make the spaces your own.
Its edgy mix of old industrial streetscapes, grand institutions, historic buildings and startling modern architecture gives Ultimo a fascinating sense of place. Ultimo thrives on its diversity – old and new, fast and slow, artisanal and commercial. Close to home find pleasures great and small, from the perfect espresso to the passion of the Opera.
Proximity to universities, transport, Darling Harbour and Chinatown is highly prized as are its foreshore walks, mosaic of neighbourhood parks, and culinary delights. Yet amidst the energy of metropolitan life, Ultimo somehow retains its village feel. It’s the ultimate neighbourhood.
A short walk away is UTS, one of Australia’s leading universities. With its masterplan upgrades in progress, including the award winning Frank Ghery building, the university offers world class education and will become one of Australia’s most recognised university campuses.
Other schools and universities are also within distance including the International Grammar School, Ultimo Public School, and The University of Sydney.
Glamorous high-end retailers are a magnet for the stylish set seeking Prada, Gucci, Dior and Hermés as well as cult boutique labels and corporate couture.

Toast the twilight at Sydney’s numerous seductive rooftop cocktail bars. Try Ivy, Zeta Bar, Sweethearts Rooftop and the 360˚ harbour views from Hotel Palisade.
