Or­a­cle set to take apart­ment liv­ing to new heights

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

BLACKBURNE’S Or­a­cle Apart­ments are set to be com­pleted ahead of sched­ule with the 21-storey project top­ping out last month.

Or­a­cle is on the cor­ner of Aberdeen and Stir­ling streets, Perth, and part of the new Stir­ling Street precinct where the CBD, North­bridge and High­gate meet.

Blackburne founder and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Paul Blackburne said it was the only project un­der con­struc­tion in that area and would in­tro­duce re­sort-style apart­ment liv­ing con­ve­niently placed.

“We’re re­ally ex­cited about the progress of Or­a­cle,” he said

“Any­one in Perth can see this ar­chi­tec­tural icon re­ally tak­ing shape now as it has reached full height and the fea­ture blue cur­tain glass wall is over half­way up the eastern side of the build­ing.”

The project is ex­pected to be com­plete in Novem­ber and will in­clude 130 apart­ments.

Res­i­dents will en­joy the use of a range of ameni­ties, in­clud­ing the Level 21 Rooftop, with pri­vate din­ing fa­cil­i­ties, bar­be­cue ar­eas and me­dia room – all with panoramic views of Perth.

Mr Blackburne said in­ter­est in Or­a­cle re­mained con­sis­tent, es­pe­cially as it drew closer to com­ple­tion.

“For the first quar­ter of 2017, we have seen more than 200 en­quiries and are cur­rently sell­ing about one apart­ment ev­ery 10 days,” he said.

“This brings the project to over 75 per cent sold and all three-bed­room apart­ments are com­pletely sold out.”

Su­san Ja­cobs and David Row­bot­tam bought a three-bed­room apart­ment in the devel­op­ment.

Their chil­dren have left home and they are look­ing to down­size from their four-bed­room, three-bath­room home in Mt Clare­mont.

“The house is too big for two peo­ple and is ex­pen­sive to run,” Ms Ja­cobs said.

“We want to down­size our liv­ing style and our re­spon­si­bil­i­ties so that we have time for other things and the free­dom to choose how we spend our time.

“An apart­ment com­plex of­fers us the smaller liv­ing size and the re­lease from do­mes­tic and gar­den du­ties, as well as the life­style changes we want.”

Ms Ja­cobs said they looked for­ward to tak­ing ad­van­tage of the life­style op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered by Or­a­cle’s lo­ca­tion.

While the three-bed­room apart­ments have sold out, one and two-bed­room apart­ments are still avail­able, with prices start­ing from $420,000.
