APART­MENTS AIM FOR NEW WORK­ERS

Melville Times - - Residential -

A NEW $115 mil­lion apart­ment and ho­tel de­vel­op­ment is ex­pected to de­liver more res­i­den­tial and tourism op­tions to Fre­man­tle.

On the cor­ner of Point and Ade­laide streets, the SKS Group project will in­clude 98 apart­ments and a 150-room, four-star Dou­bleTree by Hil­ton Fre­man­tle Ho­tel.

Col­liers In­ter­na­tional sales ex­ec­u­tives Sa­man­tha Fer­raz and Ash­lee Arnott are ex­pect­ing strong in­ter­est for the An­cora apart­ments, which they said would de­liver a new stan­dard of ac­com­mo­da­tion.

“Around 1500 pub­lic ser­vants work­ing for three gov­ern­ment de­part­ments will re­lo­cate to a new of­fice build­ing at Fre­man­tle’s Kings Square in 2020 as part of the State Gov­ern­ment’s move to de­cen­tralise jobs from Perth’s CBD,” Ms Arnott said.

“The ar­rival of these gov­ern­ment de­part­ments will be a ma­jor boost to Fre­man­tle’s work­ing pop­u­la­tion and a cat­a­lyst for new in­vest­ment.”

The project was de­signed by Box Ar­chi­tects.

Its red-brick fa­cade will pay trib­ute to Fre­man­tle’s in­dus­trial past and a ship­ping con­tainer mu­ral will recog­nise Fre­man­tle’s sta­tus as a work­ing port.

The ware­house aes­thetic will con­tinue in­side the one, two and three-bed­room apart­ments with spa­cious open plan-de­signs and a mix of con­trast­ing tex­tures and fin­ishes.

Slid­ing bal­cony screens will pro­vide shade and pri­vacy while let­ting in the sea breeze.

The apart­ments will frame a re­sort-style pool and the build­ing will also have a gym and a res­i­dents’ lounge.

“This project has the best of Fre­man­tle on its doorstep and even the train sta­tion is just a short walk away, so it will be hard to beat in terms of amenity,” Ms Fer­raz said.

Prices start from $349,000 for a one-bed­room apart­ment, $520,000 for a two-bed­room apart­ment and $725,000 for a three-bed­room apart­ment.
