Fans of Married At First Sight that appreciate drama as much as design can now stay in, or even buy. apartments in the same building the reality show couples called home during the experiment.
Contestants on the popular reality show had an extended stay at SKYE Suites Sydney atop Arc By Crown apartments, where there are several units for sale – including the palatial penthouse.
This week the newlyweds moved in with each other for the next phase of the TV experiment, and over the following weeks viewers will see them living all loved up (or not) in the luxury complex where the development’s hotel rooms and residential flats share the same address.
Crown Group’s chief operating officer Pierre Abrahamse said the development’s relationship with the high-profile show, now in its seventh season, cemented the hotel as one of the most sought-after stays in the city.
“With its plush interiors and ice cave-themed pool and jacuzzi area, it was soon attracting guests, photographers and Instagrammers from all over the world for its photo-worthy backdrops and unbeatable location,” he said.
In the award-winning 25-storey tower there are 148 residential apartments – several of which share the same layout as the MAFS couples’ temporary homes – 73 serviced hotel apartments, plus luxury facilities for residents and guests.
Keen buyers who like the look of the MAFS couples’ designer digs might want to consider purchasing a one-bedroom flat for $1.05 million, a brand new two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit for $1.18 million, a new two-bedroom apartment with study for $2.65 million or potentially the near before lived in penthouse for $6.5 million.
The sky-high home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a central atrium garden plus a rare wraparound rooftop water feature.
Given that a popular career path post-MAFS is as an Instagram influencer, it only makes sense that their home this season already has a social media presence.
Within months of opening, the property hosted the Grazia x ICON magazine launch, a Grazia magazine fashion shoot, has been recently snapped by the likes of influencers Alona Kalinina and Brock Ashby, celebrity fitness trainer Jono Castano, TV presenter Nikki Phillips and international model Cartia Mallan.
But the attention goes deeper than the social media scene. The residential building has turned heads in the design world, receiving several gongs at the 2019 MBA awards including Best Mixed Use Development, Best Use of Steel and Best Use of Bricks, Best Commercial Pool and Best Commercial Spa awards.
It also won Best Apartment Complex at the 2019 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Award and the Excellence in High-Density Development accolade at the 2019 UDIA’s NSW Awards for Excellence.
