The Victor

browns bay


The Victor is a landmark development for Browns Bay. With a strong focus on design and quality, this stunning building will transform the town centre by bringing new life to the abandoned New World site.

It is a development for those who love the relaxed East Coast Bays lifestyle but want the ease of apartment living.

The generous apartments have large balconies to relax in the sun, plenty of storage for the beach umbrella, and full-sized kitchens to cook for the whole family.

It’s a place to call home.


a landmark Design

The Victor’s modern palette of patterned concrete, black metal, grooved timber and frameless glass is a bold step forward for Browns Bay. Whether viewed from the Esplanade or the Clyde Road retail strip, this handsome development redefines the village skyline.

GMC Architects and Archi_ON have designed a mature building that responds to its urban site with ground floor retail to Bute Road and a central atrium that forms a pedestrian axis that runs past the Library back into the Leisure Centre.

The mass of the building is broken down by stepping the penthouse level back from the main northern façade, and a sawtooth roof form gives a residential scale to the western façade.

The incredible lobby opens to a soaring atrium lined with greens walls and criss-crossed by access bridges – and there is a covered courtyard on Level One for the exclusive use of residents.
