Ecco Apartments is a chic destination for those who are looking for the ultimate lifestyle in Perth.
Swanline Group and Finbar formed a joint venture last year to build 90 apartments and eight commercial lots on three blocks of rezoned land in Perth owned by Swanline. Perth-based property developer Finbar will build the apartments with both groups sharing equally in the profits from the project. Recent pre-sales indications have revealed that Finbar can expect to commence the project in mid 2012 with completion due in 2013/4.
Centrally located near the corner of Lord and Bulwer Streets, Ecco Apartments is the latest development in Perth which offers city views and is close by to endless entertainment hotspots including Mount Lawley (Beaufort Street), Highgate, East Perth, Northbridge and the Perth CBD. The entertainment and shopping precincts of East Perth, Northbridge and the Perth CBD are all less than 2km away while East Perth Train Station is easily accessible for work and other leisure activities.
Half the apartments will consist of two bedrooms with the remaining half being split evenly between one and three bedrooms. Prices start at $355,000 for the one bedroom apartments, $479,000 for two bedrooms and $570,000 for three bedrooms. Each apartment will possess European stainless steel appliances, coloured glass splash backs, granite or stone bench tops and multi split-unit air-conditioning to all bedrooms and living areas providing an exclusive stylish haven.
On the ground floor, Ecco Apartments will feature a vibrant selection of offices and cafes while the facilities will capture a ‘hotel’ feel and include:
• Secure lobby with keyless entry and lift access
• Remote controlled security gates
• Fully equipped gymnasium featuring multi-station weight training system, spin bike, treadmill, elliptical cross trainer and 42-inch LCDTV
• 17m solar heated lap pool and timber-lined sauna
• Air-conditioned pool lounge
• Games room
Finbar’s Managing Director, Darren Pateman, said “The first homebuyer in the $350,000 to $500,000 range wants to be close to the city, work, public transport and entertainment. Ecco Apartments fits these criteria perfectly and has resulted in a strong level of interest from buyers and prospective buyers prior to the sales launch. In addition, this market appeals to those looking to downsize and buyers looking for a corporate tenant.”
Named after the Italian phrase ‘here it is’, Ecco Apartments is a chic destination for those who are looking for the ultimate lifestyle in Perth. The two complexes within Ecco Apartments will reflect each other using striking architectural features and ensure they will fit perfectly into its fashionably urban location while blending residential apartment living with dynamic commercial offerings.
Conveniently located directly across from the iconic NIB stadium and Loton Park Tennis Club and less than 1500 metres from the Swan River, Ecco Apartments offers significant recreational opportunities for the local resident while only a few minutes walk from the restaurants, cafes, bars and exceptional shopping of Beaufort Street.
National demographer, Bernard Salt, spoke at the Poised for Prosperity Seminar in December 2011 and said “When you consider major CBD lifestyle redevelopment projects such as Melbourne Docklands, Pyrmont in Sydney and Brisbane’s Treasury Casino site, it is evident that Perth is at the threshold of an amazing period, which will create significant economic gains for the City.”
“With the impending $5.3 billion investment within the CBD, Perth is finally going to contain a dynamic precinct where people will enjoy living and working in the city,” he added.
It seems that Finbar, who has been developing inner city lifestyle apartments in the Perth metropolitan area since 1995 and earned a reputation for producing exceptional quality developments, has identified the Ecco Apartments project as another opportunity to tap into Perth’s high demand for urban stylish developments.
