Striking Boost for Northbridge
The West Australian
30 April 2016
Northbridge’s revitalisation is set to get a boost from a new sustainable apartment development called Velo, 89 Aberdeen Street.
The striking building, which is being developed by Baltinas Made, will comprise 61 apartments and three commercial spaces.
Each apartment includes stone benchtops in the kitchen and bathrooms, designer chrome tapware, semi-frame glass shower screens and wool-blend carpets in bedrooms and living areas. Windows and balcony doors will be fitted with a high-performance acoustic glazing system.
Baltinas Made development manager Rebecca Frost said there has also been a heavy focus on sustainability at Velo.
“Baltinas believes as architects and developers that it is our responsibility to create spaces that will set a benchmark as well as being well positioned as a sustainable development for the future,” she said. “Velo’s fundamental design is focused around passive and active energy management.”
“The central common spaces will enjoy open-air gardens that are automatically watered through water – harvesting technology, while photovoltaic systems which harness the energy from the sun will also power common areas. There will also be electric charging stations in the carpark to promote electric vehicles.”
Ms Frost said public transport and all amenities were within walking distance, Velo’s vibrant location had appealed to a range of buyers, including professionals who worked in the CBD, first homebuyers, investors, downsizers and overseas buyers.
“Velo is sited in one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan parts of the City of Perth,” she said.
Velo is expected to be completed in June.
