A co-working space. Luxe, private dining rooms. Resort-style recreational spaces. The ground breaks on the Boulevard this month and brings with it a promise of the good life.
The latest project in locally owned company CORE Developments’ portfolio will be constructed over the next two to three years at Denman Prospect.
At a $399,000 starting price for one-bedroom apartments, the property represents a rare opportunity in the current market for first home buyers. The development will include two and three-bedroom apartments, and penthouses.
LJ Hooker Project Marketing development manager James Herbert, who will be selling the apartments, said the development had not only been popular with first home buyers but also investors and owner-occupiers looking to downsize.
The Boulevard – Denman Prospect offers a range of affordable 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments, available off the plan right now. The stunning development features landscaped gardens, pool, co-working space and a top floor, 20-seat community dining room with sweeping views of Canberra. Cam Sullings spoke to James Herbert from LJ Hooker Project Marketing ACT to find out more.

“Denman Prospect is popular with all Canberrans because it’s geographically central. It provides access to the north, south and the city, has everything you would need in a suburb and is in such a beautiful area,” he said.
With sweeping views over the hills, Boulevard will claim a prime corner position in Denman Prospect. Nestled into the Molonglo Valley, it’s a 15-minute drive to Woden, Belconnen, Manuka and the CBD.
Denman Prospect, near popular indoor and outdoor recreational facilities, has a primary school and high school not far behind. The village offers dining options, fitness facilities, a supermarket and an impressive playground.
It’s not only the price and position drawing interest. The development’s value proposition is all-encompassing – a place where people can live, work and enjoy life.
James said many of today’s homeowners continued to work from home post-lockdown, so adequate work-from-home spaces were important. That’s why the 150 square metre co-working space – with desks, self-service kitchen and meeting rooms – had been a “huge selling point”.
“It’s one thing to work from home, but not everyone wants to invite their work into their personal space,” he said.
Boulevard will also host three large, top-floor private dining rooms available for residents to book. They feature a fully-functional kitchen and astounding valley views.
“Residents can have their families around for a birthday party or mates over to watch the footy,” James said.
Or they may choose to relax on the rooftop pavilion with its covered and open-air lounge areas and barbecue space.
“The outdoor pavilion will be very popular with residents,” James said. “You can picture yourself enjoying some drinks with friends on a hot summer’s night.”
James said architect JUDD.studio was made aware of the superb vistas in its brief to build something “architecturally significant” – not only the structures but in the way they embraced the location.
“You’ll see stunning overall aesthetics on the building exteriors, then beautiful landscaping and glass frontages and balconies to address the views, which are truly amazing. Then the apartments are designed to take in lots of natural light, so they will feel really beautiful inside, too.”
Due to the site’s high position, even lower-floor apartments share in some of the views of prominent landmarks including Mount Stromlo, the Lake Burley Griffin fountain, the arboretum, Telstra Tower, the city and even the Parliament House flagpole.
James said some of the interest in Boulevard had come from purchasers of CORE Developments’ three previous projects in the area.
“It’s because they know the quality CORE Developments delivers,” he said.
