Views, amenity and comfort in city-fringe apartments designed by Doepel Marsh Architects.
LKD Development Group is reporting encouraging sales at its East Perth apartment project 9 Tully, which went to market late last year with a selection of well-designed apartments in a modern complex offering views and a city-fringe location.
The distinctive nine-storey building will be located on the north-western corner of Claisebrook Village and is expected to be completed ahead of the 2019 mid-year deadline that would allow eligible buyers to qualify for the topped-up $15,000 first homebuyer grant.
The project’s 79 apartments are being sold by Colliers International’s Willie Lim who said even in Perth’s competitive market, buyers were clearly impressed by the design of the building and the layout of the apartments.
“Initially, the major lure was the fact that 9 Tully was just minutes from East Perth’s amenity and transport links to the CBD office market but after a closer look at the display suite, buyers have been won over by the interiors,” Mr Lim said.
“Most of the off-the-plan sales so far have been two-bedroom apartments but the three-bedroom and one-bedroom apartments are also selling well.”
Long-term East Perth residents Jude Newberry and her husband Graham Rutter, who have lived on Tully Road for 13 years, purchased a three-bedroom apartment with river and Burswood views on the north-east side of the 9 Tully project.
“We will be moving from a three-storey town house to a single storey apartment but the option to buy a three-bedroom apartment for under $700,000 was a deal clincher for us,” Ms Newberry said.
“I work from home so one bedroom will be used as my office and with most of our relatives in the UK, we also need a spare room for our steady stream of overseas visitors.
“We’ll be giving up a theatre room which we now rarely use but in return we will get the wrap around balcony space at 9 Tully.”
Designed by Doepel Marsh Architects, the building’s bold exterior wraps around an internal atrium that will let in natural light and fresh air to the complex.
Standard features in the interiors will include stone benchtops in the kitchens, bathrooms and laundries, designer tapware and SMEG appliances. All apartments will have combined washer-dryers.
Already the most popular location for Perth’s apartment market, East Perth will have another drawcard to offer next year when Perth Stadium opens and the Burswood Peninsula becomes the main area for major sporting events.
“Residents at 9 Tully will be able to walk to the Burswood Peninsula and Perth Stadium via the Swan River pedestrian bridge which will start from Nelson Avenue in East Perth,” Mr Lim said.
LKD Development Group Director Fabian Deng said despite the more cautious real estate market, the response to 9 Tully had been encouraging.
“With its high-quality interiors and a location that will allow future residents to tap into East Perth’s amenity, 9 Tully has been very well received by apartment buyers,” Mr Deng said.
Located on a 2032sqm corner site, 9 Tully’s upper floors will have views of the city, the Swan River, Perth Stadium and the Burswood Peninsula.
Prices start at $365,000 for one-bedroom apartments, $435,000 for two-bedrooms and $645,000 for three-bedroom apartments.
