Vakili Family Unveils Striking Chatswood Double-Towers Project: The Aeon

In a dynamic move set to reshape the Chatswood Central Business District, prominent developers Harry and Jilla Vakili have officially submitted their ambitious plans for a mixed-use tower project known as “The Aeon.”

This remarkable development, encompassing 27-storey and 18-storey towers connected by a shared podium, is set to redefine the skyline of Sydney’s Lower North Shore. The Vakili family, renowned for their active role in the property development scene, is poised to make a significant impact with their latest endeavor.


The Vakili family’s strong presence in the real estate sector extends across Sydney, and they have played integral roles in various projects, including those in Chatswood, Crows Nest, and Hornsby. Their latest proposal at 3 McIntosh, 2 Day, and 40-42 Anderson Streets in Chatswood has been met with great anticipation from both local residents and industry insiders.

The Aeon project is designed to be a symbol of modernity, offering a sophisticated blend of residential and commercial spaces. The two towers, standing at 27 and 18 storeys, respectively, are expected to be connected by a visually stunning podium, enhancing the project’s aesthetic appeal while providing a functional space for various community activities.

One of the most significant aspects of this development is its estimated cost of $98 million, which underlines the Vakili family’s commitment to bringing this visionary project to life. The substantial investment reflects their confidence in the Chatswood market’s potential and their dedication to contributing to its growth and transformation.

With their latest submission, the Vakili family demonstrates their dedication to elevating the city’s skyline and enriching the lives of its residents. The project’s strategic location in the heart of Chatswood and its proximity to transportation hubs and essential amenities make it a valuable addition to the evolving Chatswood CBD.

“Integrating residential growth on this site will effectively aid the council in meeting its population growth targets while leveraging the inherent qualities of the urban design context,” the application said. “The proposed development considers the existing context and responds to the future character of the site by providing a built form that will sit well within the urban setting.”

The Vakili family’s proposal now awaits review by the Willoughby City Council, a process that will undoubtedly attract keen interest from the local community, architects, and the construction industry. If approved, “The Aeon” promises to be a prominent landmark in the Chatswood CBD, further cementing the Vakili family’s reputation as forward-thinking developers with a vision for the future of Sydney’s Lower North Shore. Stay tuned for updates as this exciting project unfolds.
