The Retreat is Sydney’s newest and most iconic resort-style master planned community centrally located in the corridor between Sydney CBD and Parramatta CBD, one of Australia’s fastest growing cities.

Meriton’s vision was to create a seamless, curved tower, rising 22 levels, which capture the spectacular panoramas of the surrounding precinct over Bicentennial Park and Parramatta River, through to the Sydney CBD from wrap around floor-to-ceiling glass windows and semi-enclosed balconies.
