Overall Development

  • 168 Luxury Apartments.
  • 24 Ultra Luxury Skyhomes.
  • 10 Food and Beverage outlets at ground floor, right at your doorstep.
  • The whole complex is a 5-star, Green Star rated building - This rating has only been achieved in a small handful of residential towers in Western Australia.
  • Designed by Norup + Wilson, to have a presence in the new Canning Bridge Precinct - created a lasting aesthetic building on a landmark site.
  • Extensive street front landscaping that provides for one of the most inspiring streetscapes in Western Australia.
  • The introduction of an 'art wall' that provides for a visual light display at night - controlled by 2200 programmable LED lights provides an array of moving images.
  • Fully sprinklered building, applying state of the art smoke alarm and fire detection system, and best practice design for fire protection of the building and its façade.
  • Apartments are designed for the local market - that means good sized balconies, good sized living spaces and modest bedroom space.
  • The Building is designed for owner occupiers - so we have a large number of owners living in the building. This is not to say it is not a good investment product. To the contrary, if it so appealing to owner occupiers, then tenants are no different. In fact, the rental yields achieved to date in the building are providing an outstanding return.
  • Custom building app to control access, lights, air-conditioning, messenger, intercom etc.
  • Internet speeds of up to 1Gbps through embedded fibre network.
  • Super low strata fees due to advanced technology within the building.
