Velo Sets Pace in Life Cycle

The creators of this $32 million inner-city boutique development believe rising fuel prices will drive strong demand for the units, particularly among Perth’s cyclists.

They have actually dubbed the Northbridge development at 89 Aberdeen Street “Velo” – French for “bike”.

The nine-storey building of 61 apartments and a small bar/café with al fresco dining is the creation of local property development management group Baltinas Made and designed by Baltinas Architecture.

 “Velo sits right in the heart of cosmopolitan Northbridge and offers an unrivalled opportunity for those who want to live where they play, while still being close enough to cycle or catch public transport to the majority of Perth’s major business districts,” developer Barry Baltinas said.

 “The vibrancy of this location, complete with iconic Velo features such as fully enclosable winter garden balconies that can be used all-year round, offers a lifestyle that parallels inner-city living in Melbourne and Sydney.”

Each of the one, two and three-bedroom apartments comes with at least one car bay (equipped with power outlets for charging electric cars), there is a bus stop nearby and Perth train station is 700m away.

Velo has solar rooftop panels, rooftop catchments for water harvesting, and waterwise landscaping.

Open-air walkways between apartments feature sustainable gardens.

One-bedroom apartments start from $355,000 and two bedrooms from $495,000.

A display suite will be open from August 23.
