The 360-degree vistas from the Metrolpol rooftop take in some of Canberra’s best-known landmarks, including Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial, Lake Burley Griffin and Telstra Tower on Black Mountain.
In fact, many of Canberra’s iconic buildings influenced the unique butterfly facade and edgy urban design of Metropol’s three towers.
Geocon Group Head of Sales Adam Morgan says Fender Katsalidis Architects have boldly created an inner-city habitat where vertical lines and angled facades make for a commanding street presence.
He says every apartment in the striking new Braddon complex has been designed to take in sweeping views of the city or beautiful Glebe Park.
With the precinct soon to be completed and residents excited about a spring settlement, Adam says owners and prospective buyers have been flocking to see the recently opened display apartments.
“People can come in and get a feel for the high level of inclusions and the sweeping views from the rooftop terrace, from Mount Ainslie to the Brindabellas,” Adam said.
“The owners have been overwhelmed with excitement about seeing their new homes come to life, and the project has exceeded their expectations.”
Adam said about 90 per cent of the 550 apartments have been sold, with only 50 opportunities remaining across the three towers.
He says the apartments offer an affordable opportunity for people seeking the vibrant, inner-city lifestyle, without the average $1.2 million price tag for a house and land in the inner northern suburbs.
“If people want to live in the cool CBD area, we have two-bedroom options with a four in front, which is pretty exciting.”
New residents include a mix of corporate couples and downsizers moving in from the suburbs who are seeking a maintenance-free turn-key property in the city.
The one, two and three-bedroom apartments boast balconies, high-level finishes and a range of floor plans. Residents will also have exclusive access to the private amenities, including a breath-taking infinity-edge pool on level eight overlooking Glebe Park.
Residents can entertain guests in the shared chef’s kitchen and resident lounge areas and live the resort lifestyle every day with private spas, saunas, relaxation room and viewing decks. There are also three roof-top gardens and a kids play area.
“We’ve gone above and beyond the standards set by our competitors, with true luxury appeal taking apartment living to the next level,” Adam said.
Metropol’s inner-city location gives residents easy access to all the CBD offers. Transport, including bus and light rail, is close at hand, and there’s easy access to bicycle paths and walking tracks. It’s also close to the city’s many bars, pubs, restaurants, cafes and shopping centres.
Metropol captures a unique vision that is both urban and suburban.
