Construction will start in July on the Antipodean apartment building at 39 Beach Rd.
The development by Paul Doole will have 161 apartments. The green light for a construction start followed the signing of 100 contracts through Barfoot & Thompson Projects.
The property is on freehold land across the road from the leasehold Scene 3, so upper levels of the 50m building will have an unobstructed view to the harbour over the Scene units on Quay Park, where there’s a 30m height limit.
One-third of the units in the development are “up-&-over” maisonettes, apartments on 2 levels with a bedroom on each level and living space on the upper level. A separate one-bedroom unit slots into the rest of the space on the lower level.
A feature right across the 65m-wide building is that all apartments will have wide frontages, all with balconies. Internal sizes range from 32m² studios and 41m² one-bedroom units through 64m² for some one-bedroom units, 81-85m² for single-level 2-bedroom units, 90m² for the maisonettes, up to a small selection of 126m² 3-bedroom units. Balconies will range from 6m² for the studios up to 49m² on some of the upper-level maisonettes. The units were priced in a range of $10-15,000/m² plus parking, with 2.7m stud heights throughout.
