CON­STRUC­TION of Fin­bar’s $124 mil­lion Sabina Apart­ments has of­fi­cially started, with a re­cent sod­turn­ing event.

Melville Mayor Rus­sell Aubrey, who used shov­els with Fin­bar chair­man John Chan, chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer Ron­ald Chan joint ven­ture part­ner John Ru­bino and builder Gerry Hanssen, said its start was a key mile­stone in the group’s vi­sion for the Can­ning Bridge precinct.

“The City of Melville is com­mit­ted to the re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion of the Can­ning Bridge area through sup­port­ing both ex­cel­lent and sus­tain­able built form de­sign and ap­pro­pri­ate land use mix, which is pro­vided by de­vel­op­ments such as Sabina,” he said.

“This type of de­vel­op­ment is key to the suc­cess of our over­all struc­ture plan, de­signed to sup­port growth and pros­per­ity for Melville, with a fo­cus on in­creased den­sity in key ac­tiv­ity cen­tres con­nected to key trans­port cor­ri­dors, of­fer­ing the com­mu­nity im­proved hous­ing af­ford­abil­ity and diver­sity in these cen­tres.”

Fin­bar chief op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer Ron­ald Chan said the aim was to of­fer fam­i­lies, cou­ples and younger buy­ers an op­por­tu­nity to buy in the es­tab­lished area and pro­vide older Ap­ple­cross res­i­dents the abil­ity to down­size in the area they loved while main­tain­ing a lux­ury life­style.

“The strong mar­ket re­sponse across the range of one, two and three-bed­room lux­ury apart­ments has led to con­struc­tion com­menc­ing in four months from the project’s pub­lic launch date, re­flect­ing the de­mand for the lo­ca­tion, the views on of­fer and the strength of the com­pany and its track record in de­liv­ery,” Mr Chan said.

The 30-storey apart­ment de­vel­op­ment is stage one of Fin­bar’s three­stage Can­ning Bridge de­vel­op­ment.

Prices start from $420,000 for a one-bed­room apart­ment with win­ter gar­den bal­cony, $642,500 for a twobed­room apart­ment, $900,000 for a three-bed­room apart­ment.
