The urban environment at Dickson is changing into an arts-inspired lifestyle zone. Developer ART Group is using COX Architects and interior designer Darren Palmer to add resort-style living apartments to the inner north, refreshing the lifestyle options available in the area.

Mulberry apartments will be within the precinct of Soho, a new urban cultural hub that will also feature Soho Gardens and extensive landscaped green communal areas, including two of the heritage-listed Dickson Flats buildings, which will be kept as a feature of the precinct, but internally refitted as high-end apartments.

The interiors of Mulberry are by Darren Palmer, one of Australia’s most prominent interior designers. The interiors include soft-close doors and drawers, 40mm composite stone kitchen benchtops in the kitchen, premium tapware and fittings in the bathroom, a combined washing machine and dryer, reverse cycle air conditioning and double glazing throughout. Those who buy off the plan will be able to select a light, contrasted or dark palette for their apartment’s interiors, and can opt-in for furniture packages hand-selected for the Mulberry apartments by Palmer.

The lifestyle choices are intelligent and attractive to the environmentally conscious, with BYKKO bike-sharing and Popcar car-sharing services available, free wi-fi throughout all communal spaces in the building, an embedded network to supply power with savings of up to 20 per cent compared to the standard retail rates for hot water and internet, and an electric car charger.

Mulberry will have a rooftop pool and sundeck with a Zen garden, with landscaping to the building’s common grounds and a communal vegetable garden. And, if you’re doing the grocery shopping by riding your BYKKO bike up to Dickson, you’ll be able to have your groceries delivered to your own refrigerated locker.

Additionally, ART Group Sales representative Josh Morrissey says that for a limited time, buyers are able to secure an apartment and receive up to $25,690 towards their deposit depending on the size of their apartment.

A feature of the development will be The ART Group restoring the Dickson Flats to their original glory as they looked in 1959 when they were built.

“Visitors to Canberra will be welcomed by heritage listed and fully restored 1959 buildings, landscaped green areas, and the new Mulberry building,” said Mr Morrissey.

“There will be gardens wherever you can put gardens all around the heritage-listed buildings, on rooftops, and through to the surrounding precinct. It’s a very sustainable green zone,” he said.

One, two and three-bedrooom apartments at Mulberry are currently selling off the plan.

“a combined washing machine and dryer”
In other words, they are so stretched for space in these apartments that they need to put in one of these diabolical “doesn’t do either job properly” combined machines, rather than having the room to put in separate washer and dryer.
