Glenview Court, Tamarama

Uplift: remedial expertise & large scale construction restoring iconic Tamarama apartment block

Following a ten year journey of planning, design and review, the apartment owners of 20 Illawong Avenue, Tamarama are starting to see their vision come to fruition. Buildcorp’s Asset Solutions team are rapidly progressing with the uplift works to the seven-level, 1960s residential building, adding dual lifts, secure basement parking spaces for all owners and new balconies to optimise panoramic views over Tamarama Beach.

From early in the process, the project team has supported the owners with cost planning advice. After an investigatory period, the team developed solutions to strengthen and stabilise the building and achieve the design for the sleek new façade. 

A key feature of the redevelopment is the addition of two spacious penthouses on the upper level. Both penthouses will sit below a curved roof-line and provide a source of revenue to assist in funding the project. 

With upgraded services infrastructure, secure landscaped gardens and new windows and doors adding to the improved, contemporary exterior, it is expected that the owners will see significant ‘uplift’ in unit valuations.
