WITH local councils expected to meet infill development targets set by the state government, many areas are experiencing rezoning and redevelopment.
The City of Stirling’s Telford Crescent sub precinct is one such area and will soon include Establish Property Group’s (EPG) new boutique Locale development on Trevithick Close.
EPG have a strong track record of successful developments including the mixed-use Richmond Quarter, East Fremantle, Parklink, Success and Taskers, North Fremantle.
Designed by Proekt Architecture and to be built by Northerly Group Australia, this project aims to meet the missing middle of Perth’s development housing opportunities.
“While apartments serve an excellent purpose in housing affordability, the residences at Locale intend to create an intimate living destination,” EPG development advisor Andrew Willis said.
“With only 21 units, the benefits of apartment living have been balanced with a community feel and built on with the creation of the first-floor garden and barbecue terrace.
“The terrace not only serves a purpose in disguising any views to a car- park, it also creates an internal communal area capturing northern light and park treetop vistas.”
Locale will include five one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments and 16 two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartments with spacious living areas.
It has been designed to ensure privacy, with all residences looking out to streetscape or parklands.
The apartments will also be energy-efficient, reducing heating and cooling costs.
“The residences in Locale engage with the northern and western elevations to encourage passive heating of the units,” Mr Willis said.
“Window openings are located on each plan to encourage cross-ventilation between the living and bedroom areas and reduce airconditioning demand.”
Buyers will be able to choose from two interior colour schemes and the apartments will have a range of quality features including stone benchtops, Italian Artusi electric appliances, Fisher & Paykel clothes dryer and reverse-cycle airconditioning.
The complex will provide secure living, with video intercom in the lobby connected to all apartments, plus air-key based access to the automated carpark gates and lift.
Mr Willis said Locale was the ideal place to call home for anyone looking to be close to transport, the city, amenities and the beach.
“It is exceptionally well located within the suburb of Stirling, being nestled between the sought-after established residential areas of Talia Gardens and Princeton Estate, it provides excellent access to the Stirling train and bus station as well as on-ramps to the freeway both north and south,” he said.
“A short walk away are the tranquil Stirling Civic Gardens, which offer ample opportunity for an easy stroll, an exercise route or simply a place to just relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings the park has to offer.
“Within a five minute drive or a leisurely stroll, you have all the amenity that Westfield Innaloo (soon to be known as Westfield Stirling, following a circa $600 million redevelopment) has to offer.”
Prices start from $349,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and from $485,000 for a two-bedroom residence.
