Founders Lane precinct is fast taking shape in Civic, and the final stage, SOL, is presenting buyers with their last opportunity to purchase a piece of Canberra’s prime inner city.
With the first two buildings of the precinct, The Mark and Provenance, now completed and the third residential apartment block, Dawn, underway, SOL is set to be released to the market this week in a parcel of land that promises the ultimate in location and lifestyle.
SOL is opposite the Canberra Centre, two streets away from Lonsdale Street in Braddon, and with stunning views across the heritage-listed Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centre and towards Mt. Ainslie.
Residents will be able to soak up the vistas from their shared rooftop garden, which has sweeping 360-degree views of Mt. Ainslie, Black Mountain and the city skyline. It will be the ultimate place to meet your neighbours or invite your family and friends for a barbecue.
Michael Prendergast, National Head of Development for JWLand said, “SOL was designed so that it embraces the established American Elm and Evergreen Oak trees which have been on the site for many generations”.
“We made this a focal point for the building design so that the internal-facing apartments will have great views of the trees,” he said.
At street level, SOL will have its own cosmopolitan buzz with shops and cafés adding to the lively community atmosphere, providing valuable amenity while also connecting residents with the Founders Lane precinct.
“We have a diverse range of one, two and three bedroom plan types that will appeal to a variety of buyer types and needs while making SOL a vibrant community,” said Mr Prendergast.
Each apartment will be as high spec as the outside building with SMEG appliances seamlessly integrated into designer kitchens and contemporary tactile finish selections ensuring SOL delivers a modern and enduring aesthetic.
Expansive windows allow ample natural light to flow through the apartments, while double glazing helps control the temperature and insulates owners from the city bustle when they want to cocoon inside.
The engineered Hickory timber flooring and clean lines give each apartment an ambience that’s welcoming and serene.
For those who crave nature as well as that city buzz, both Glebe Park and the Mt. Ainslie reserve are just streets away.
Sales into Founders Lane have been strong given its foothold of the land between the CBD and Braddon. This is particularly evident given that nearly half the building has been sold in the pre-release.
With apartments starting from $397,000 and completion expected in the first quarter of 2022, SOL is eligible for the $25,000 Home Builder Grant provided that buyers meet the criteria.
