From a car park to prestige city address – the Barracks precinct’s first residential development One City Hill will transform the western side of Civic and offer convenient apartment living in a spectacular setting.
The developer, Morris Property Group, will offer a taste of what that address will be like when it teams up with FRANKE Appliances to present A Day in the City at The Barracks Sales Gallery, corner of London Circuit and Farrell Place, on Saturday 3 August from 11 am to 2 pm.
Slade Minson from Morris Property Group says the Barracks Gallery is possibly Canberra’s biggest home display area, with more than 400 square metres on show, including a full three-bedroom apartment and showcasing all three interior colour schemes.
One City Hill has been designed to echo the geometry of nearby Lake Burley Griffin, with a mix of precise angles and soft curves uniting the natural and man-made worlds. The design also maximises privacy while allowing expansive views of the City Hill parkland and beyond to the Lake.
With its significant frontage to Vernon Circle and southern approach to the city, the distinctively curved building is destined to become a Canberra landmark.
A Day in the City is designed to give potential owners a feel for what life could be like in the heart of the city, while learning more about the mixed-use Barracks precinct being developed on Section 100, formerly Section 63, near the Law Courts.
Other attractions include cooking demonstrations from FRANKE’s professional chef, with lots of tasting opportunities and a range of FRANKE cooking giveaways, live music, free coffee and hot drinks.
There is also a chance to win a night at Jamala Wildlife Lodge, to be drawn on the day.
Mr Minson says A Day in the City presents a great opportunity to get a taste of the city lifestyle while speaking to those in the know.
“With Stage Two of the light rail basically running past the front door, One City Hill presents the perfect opportunity to see what city lifestyle can be like,” Mr Minson says.
“The Barracks precinct captures the closeness and convenience of living in a central location, easy access to city amenities, and walking distance to the ANU.”
