Markuan Announces Swan Suites Mascot, The Environmentally Conscious Office Tower Inspired By Australian Paperbark Trees

Brand Voice

Sydney-based fund management company, Markuan, has recently initiated construction of their new environmentally conscious commercial office tower named Swan Suites. To commemorate the groundbreaking, an Aboriginal Smoking Ceremony was performed. This traditional practice brings protection and good energy to visitors and the land.

Swan Suites is located in Sydney’s growing suburb of Mascot and was designed by Koichi Takada Architects. The Architect’s structures are internationally renowned for Koichi Takada’s philosophy of “being one with the world”. This approach is clearly reflected in Swan Suites as the exterior was inspired by paperbark trees native to coastal eastern Australia. Through Markuan and Koichi Takada Architects, Swan Suites has already won a design excellence award and is targeting a five-star NABERS sustainability rating.

Being one of three strata buildings in Sydney’s foremost emerging precinct, Swan Suites provides a truly unique working experience. The building is made from eco-friendly materials and operates a sustainable energy strategy through heat absorbing glass and solar panels. Greenery and wood accents on each floor bring comforting natural aesthetics. The 11 storey tower has three sides of floor to ceiling glass and a solid interior wall to maximise natural lighting within the work environment. Swan Suites is accommodating all types of work arrangements by offering flexible floor plans starting at 413 m2 up to 617 m2. Each floor offers break-out areas and kitchen facilities that promote wellness and healthy living. 

End of trip amenities like bike storage, lockers, changing rooms, and showers are also offered to encourage work-life balance and make commuting a convenient experience. Outside the property, 14 above ground parking spots increase ease of access for commuters or visitors.

Markuan chose Mascot for Swan Suites because it provides inner city convenience while also being in close proximity to natural spaces, the central business district, well-connected train stations, and an international airport. Mascot is a constantly modernising and fast growing suburb that makes Swan Suites a promising opportunity for investors. The sustainable tower has an indicative gross rental return of 5% per annum and indicative capital growth rate of 3-5% per annum. 

Mascot is already home to multiple high-profile hotels and businesses and the area has been supported by government and council initiatives like the WestConnex Interchange and Green Square urban renewal project to cultivate a healthy diversity of work and living options. 

Office details, availability, and CGIs are all listed on the Swan Suites website and Markuan’s online project portfolio. Interested parties can learn about the multiple levels for sale and what long-term benefits the tower produces. Since the conception of Swan Suites, Markuan and Koichi Takada Architects anticipate the tower to awaken conscious sustainable living for society. 

Markuan has many other projects under development and will soon be constructing a 19 storey tower on Chevron Island. The tower provides short term accommodation and is targeting similar sustainability goals that Markuan stands by for all of their properties.
