MA­RINA LEAVES OTH­ERS IN SHADE

Southern Gazette (Victoria Park) - - Residential -

Artists’ im­pres­sions of Black­burne’s Ma­rina East. BLACK­BURNE will launch Stage 2 of its Ma­rina East project in As­cot this week­end.

Stage 1 of the 91-apart­ment de­vel­op­ment met a strong re­sponse.

“We’ve had 913 regis­tra­tions of in­ter­est since launch­ing the project and stage 1 has been an over­whelm­ing suc­cess, with over $28 mil­lion of apart­ments al­ready sold,” man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Paul Black­burne said.

“In re­sponse to the de­mand that ex­ists, we are re­leas­ing 10 new apart­ment de­signs at the stage 2 launch this Satur­day at 11am.”

De­signed by ar­chi­tect firm Hames Sharley, Ma­rina East will in­clude a mix of one, two and three­bed­room apart­ments and pent­houses, most with di­rect river views, over three bou­tique-sized build­ings.

There will also be a ground-floor cafe over­look­ing the ma­rina and res­i­dents will have ac­cess to a pri­vate in­ter­nal gar­den and al­fresco bar­be­cue and din­ing area.

Recre­ation fa­cil­i­ties will in­clude a gym, yoga room and sauna, and a wa­ter sports room.

“This will in­clude a cou­ple of SUP boards and kayaks for res­i­dents to use, where they can pad­dle up the river and around the park­land in the area,” Mr Black­burne said.

“Res­i­dents will also have the op­tion to store their wa­ter sports gear in this area.”

Ma­rina East’s lo­ca­tion, on the only ma­rina east of Perth, will pro­vide easy ac­cess to shops in May­lands and Mor­ley, while res­i­dents can take their boat along the river from the Swan Val­ley to Fre­man­tle, pass­ing the As­cot Race­course, May­lands Penin­sula Golf Course, Perth Sta­dium, Crown Perth and Elizabeth Quay along the way.

Mr Black­burne said buy­ers were com­ing from across Perth and were mainly owner-oc­cu­piers, par­tic­u­larly down­siz­ers want­ing larger twobed­room apart­ments, three­bed­room apart­ments and pent­houses and the lo­ca­tion held a lot of ap­peal.

“One buyer loved the shaded walk­ways and cy­cle­ways along the river, which their lo­ca­tion in South Perth doesn’t of­fer,” he said.

“They also liked the birdlife, out­look, prox­im­ity to work and the new sta­dium – they have al­ready walked it and it took 35 min­utes – and the mix of the amenity.”
