SOLID DEMAND FOR NEW APARTMENTS
URBAN revitalisation across the Perth metropolitan area is breathing new life into established suburbs, with infill apartment developments anchoring many of these plans.
In Midland’s historic Railway Workshops precinct, which is part of the area’s $1 billion-plus renewal plan, Victoria Quarter is a contemporary multi-storey development combining commercial and retail space with 70 one and two-bedroom homes.
Construction of the mixed-used project began last year and is set for completion in the fourth quarter of this year, according to developer Mustera Property Group.
More than half the apartments, including all one-bedroom apartments, have sold.
Selling agent Paul Conti, of Time Conti Sheffield, said strong buyer interest in a short amount of time was heavily influenced by the substantial redevelopment happening around the suburb.
“Without doubt, the completion of St John of God public hospital, just 300m from Victoria Quarter, together with the planned 121-bed St John private hospital and the Curtin University Medical School have been big selling points,” he said.
“Interest from health professionals who want to be close to their place of work has made the development appealing.
“Other buyers are those simply looking to downsize and want the reassurance that modern facilities, such as medical, health, retail and transport options, are within reach while still enjoying the feeling of living in a regional town steeped in history.”
Victoria Quarter is on the corner of Helena Street and Foundry Road and will sit alongside Railway Square, a vibrant open space where shops, cafes and restaurants will create a piazza-style ambience.
The remaining two-bedroom apartments, which start from $375,000, have quality appliances and high-end finishes, including designer kitchens, luxury bathroom fittings and ample storage.
The homes have a free-flowing layout centred on an open-plan main living area, which extend onto large balconies, and also include a parking bay.
