At pinnacle of success
THE first residents have moved into South Perth’s tallest apartment tower, a landmark 20-storey building opposite the Perth Zoo.
The $63 million The Pinnacle complex is the first high-rise building constructed in the riverside suburb in almost 50 years due to previous restrictions in the council’s town planning scheme.
New residents Janine and Robert Denner downsized from a five-bedroom family home in the suburb to a 7th floor two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit in the building.
“We really enjoy our new apartment lifestyle and it felt good to get rid of unnecessary belongings,” Mr Denner said.
“We love South Perth and were happy to remain in the area.
“Our apartment has a large northeast corner balcony and the view is amazing – it extends from Matilda Bay right around to beyond Manning.”
Fewer than 10 apartments remain in the development, which was designed by award-winning architects Hassell for Chinese residential developer Zone Q and built by Jaxon on the corner of Charles and Labouchere roads.
“Many buyers have told us they shopped around but were drawn back to Pinnacle’s great location, smart design and obvious quality,” Zone Q sales manager Vivian Zhang said.
