When I found out that I was going to visit Adam Hobill and Tina Mizgalski’s…
It goes without saying that the COVID restrictions have been less than ideal.
While more than necessary to help stop the spread, they’ve certainly limited things. But while I’m quite looking forward to being able to visit family and friends care-free and jet off around the world again—sweating by the sparkling waters in Greece would sure beat another frosty morning right now—there are other parts of iso-living I’m less keen to say goodbye to.
Casual Friday on every day of the week? A less chaotic schedule? More time to spend with my partner? Zero commute times? Yes, thank you.
If you’re also enjoying not having to venture too far from home, living in a precinct where you have everything right on your doorstep is kind of like living your best iso-life every day. And precincts don’t come much more impressive than GEOCON’s new Republic Precinct in Belconnen.
It’s not only the largest mixed-use precinct in Canberra, but also the largest being built in Australia, and once complete will include five residential towers, a hotel, a supermarket, shops, restaurants, cafes, bars, a hairdresser, a bank and more.
So whatever you need is just a quick trip down the lift to the ground floor plaza.
And with the Republic Precinct close to UC, CIT, a number of government departments, Calvary Hospital and Westfield Belconnen, it could also mean going to work or study is just a quick nip up the road—no sitting in traffic or on public transport required.
The first two towers in the precinct, Republic and Dusk, were completed in May this year, with the precinct’s first residents moving in.
Stage two is High Society, the tallest towers in Canberra, which is expected to reach completion later this year. And the last opportunity to buy into the precinct has just hit the market, with the final release of apartments in Nightfall, the third stage and final tower.
Located on the southern edge of Lake Ginninderra, Nightfall includes 334 apartments, with one bedroom, one bedroom plus study, and two-bedroom options available with a range of floorplans, starting from the very affordable $361,900.
“We believe these new apartments will be popular for investors, young professionals and students given the building’s clever design as well as proximity to universities, schools, Westfield Belconnen and Lake Ginninderra,” says Elliot Woods from GEOCON.
“And they’re the final opportunity to buy into Republic Precinct, which is like a suburb in the sky. There’s going to be around 3,000 people living there, and it’s transforming into a really exciting, thriving hub with everything right on your doorstep. So if you wanted to, you could easily not have to leave your own little square kilometre patch.”
Nightfall apartments all come with features including stone benchtops, reverse cycle air-conditioning, high-end SMEG appliances and extensive storage options.
“The stone benchtops and SMEG appliances give the apartments a high-quality feel, while the varied floor plans will appeal to buyers from all corners of the market,” says Elliot.
“Residents also get to enjoy a private entertaining space, complete with a barbecue area, chef’s kitchen and private dining room on level two. This space is somewhere residents can take ownership of as an extension of their own homes.”
Nightfall is expected to reach completion in mid-2021.
And because we could all do with some good news right now, Nightfall’s apartments qualify for the Commonwealth Government’s HomeBuilder grants, so eligible owner-occupiers could get a $25,000 boost towards buying their brand new apartment.
What: Final release of apartments at Nightfall in Belconnen’s Republic Precinct.
