NewActon South is one of the four buildings in the NewActon art precinct.
The ambition was to create a lively network of street level activity within a genuine urban community, tied together by art and landscaping.

NewActon South is a 17 level building comprising a number of retail spaces, residents facilities and approximately 190 apartments. The glazed facade is intended to maximise the views from the apartments, with tower apartments designed to benefit from the spectacular views.
The ground floor residences are townhouse-style two storey apartments, each with their own individual street address and entry points. They contain lofty double-height living spaces, and their private ground floor courtyards provide a transition between the more public street, and the private domain.
The podium roof has extensive landscaped roof gardens with integrated art commissions, providing elevated recreational space within the development for residents of the apartments.
