Can you really have it all? When it comes to purchasing a property, is it possible to be surrounded by the bush capital’s natural beauty Canberra is famous for while also having access to exceptional coffee, cosmopolitan restaurants and amenities within walking distance?

At Southquay, Tuggeranong’s newest precinct, residents will have parkland and walking trails at their doorstep along with shopping and dining options, all while being minutes from the convenience of Tuggeranong Town Centre. Southquay forms an integral part of the Tuggeranong Town Centre Master Plan and is located on the south-east and south-west foreshore of Lake Tuggeranong. The area is set to enliven the Tuggeranong Lake foreshore and strengthen the town centre through a mixture of residential and commercial development, a central park with children’s playground, and a lakefront boulevard. The Master Plan will also see the completion of the shared pedestrian and cyclist loop around Lake Tuggeranong and will include two new bridges to unite both sides of the lake so residents can genuinely have it all.

New development, Essence, is set to take full advantage of the unique new area by offering residents the calm and peaceful views of a lakeside retreat, with direct access to a number of running tracks, bike trails and outdoor recreational activities. At the same time, being right in the middle of all the action, living moments from the Tuggeranong Town Centre giving a real sense of connection, proximity and convenience.

With construction well underway and move in dates locked in for late-2018, over 50% of apartments have already sold at
Essence. The prime location – next to The Belvedere which is set to become an engaging, atmospheric waterfront boulevard that will offer a sophisticated selection of new restaurants, cafes and bars. Being this close to everything means immersing yourself in the pace and excitement of modern life, or taking a step back and just soaking in the views.

The modern, industrial-inspired design from Architects Ring & Associates unites glass, raw materials and landscaped gardens, forming a striking central feature of the area. Essence is a much smaller development than others within Southquay, offering only 62 apartments in total, across two separate buildings. The first building is a striking 7-storey tower with only 4 apartments on each floor, offering a private retreat without many neighbours. The second is a 5-storey building comprising 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences with larger penthouse-style apartments above.

Sales Agent, Lauren Laing from Independent Property Group says, “The majority of apartments are a north aspect, either have park views or water views and are designed larger than what’s currently out in the marketplace today.” With her favourite feature of the development being, “the views that you get from every single apartment.”

Inside, each residence was designed to have a functional, practical open floor plan that maximises usable space and integrates fully with outside areas. Kitchens feature a range of high-quality Ariston appliances. Bathrooms offer designer tap-ware and shower-heads along with feature mosaic tiles. With a minimum EER of 5.0, NBN connectivity and video intercom access, Essence provides the best of contemporary living with a community feel.

Located in Greenway’s new Southquay precinct – Anketell St, Greenway, the display suite is opening to the public Saturday, 2nd June and Sunday 3rd June 10 am – 4 pm.

For your opportunity to see a finalised apartment, fully furnished with inclusions and the views available at Essence, contact Lauren Laing for more information – 0423 349 566 or lje@independent.com.au
