The edgy new Establishment apartment complex is complete, bringing a relaxed inner-city vibe to Gungahlin.

Residents will start moving into their new apartments during the Easter holidays – an ideal time to make use of the fantastic facilities, which include a rooftop pool and cinema, barbecue areas and an outdoor gym.

Well-priced to suit first home buyers, and with loads of health and fitness features, the apartments are perfect for those seeking a low-maintenance lifestyle where wellness comes first.

Geocon development manager Brendan Peters says the new residents are falling in love with the complex and are excited to be moving into their new homes.

“The feedback from the buyers has been really positive. People are really impressed with the quality of the apartments, the amenities and the amazing views,” he said.

“Everyone has said they’re really looking forward to making the most of the shared outdoor facilities.

“Canberra gets the extremes of hot and cold weather, so it’s great to have those amenities just outside your door.

“The outdoor entertaining areas are fantastic because in an apartment you don’t generally have as much space as a house to entertain family and friends. It’s nice to be able to have those shared spaces without having to buy and maintain them yourself.”

Residents can host gatherings in either of the two barbecue areas that take in magnificent views, and the kids can sit back on the bean bag lounges and watch a movie under the stars.

Early birds can hit the gym or swim a few laps before work and relax on the rooftop with a sundowner on those balmy summer afternoons.

Both the outdoor areas and the apartments take in sweeping views from every angle, whether it’s over the Yerribee Pond Park, Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve or Black Mountain Tower and beyond.

The living areas and bedrooms have picture windows to make the most of the outlook, which is most impressive from the highest apartments at dusk.

While the stylish homes were quick to sell off-the-plan, there is still a selection of one and two-bedroom units available, some with studies, and a range of floorplan options.

With a starting price of $390,900 for a one-bedder, Brendan says The Establishment offers great value for money for first home buyers, young buyers, downsizers and savvy investors.

“The level of amenity that’s there, the build quality and proximity to the city, offers value for money that is unmatched probably anywhere else in Canberra, or any major city,” he said.

“You’re getting a brand new apartment located within an easy commute to the CBD via the light rail and within walking distance to the shops, restaurants and bars at Gungahlin. You’re not going to find all of that in Sydney or Melbourne.”

Developed by Geocon in collaboration with Empire, The Establishment brings a fresh urban vibe to Gungahlin and offers an affordable alternative to a house on a residential block.

“People are seeking the low maintenance lifestyle so they can spend their time out walking or cycling on one of the many nearby trails, or they can lock up and go on holidays without worrying about getting someone to look after their house and yard,” Brendan said.

The residents moving into the two-building complex are a mix of young working couples and families, downsizers, retirees, first home buyers and investors.

“It’s a great mix and, with all the shared amenities on offer, The Establishment will soon become a nice little community,” Brendan said.

Three commercial premises on the ground floor have all sold, offering residents convenient access to a potential mix of shops and eateries.

While the building is impressive from the street, each apartment also has sleek industrial touches throughout, including bright kitchens with stone benchtops and European appliances, custom-built vanities and frameless shower screens in the bathrooms, and energy-efficient LED lighting.

The apartments also boast reverse-cycle air conditioning, spacious balconies, glazed aluminium framed windows and flexible floor plans to maximise sunlight.

As Gungahlin continues to grow into a stand-alone true town centre, it has really come into its own with great shopping, schools, medical facilities and the light rail.

The Establishment is an easy eight-minute walk from Gungahlin Town Centre and its rapidly-growing selection of supermarkets, bars, restaurants and cafes.

Bustling Belconnen is just a 15-minute drive to the southwest, and you can be at Canberra Airport in just 17 minutes.

The north-side location also provides easy access out of Canberra to the South Coast, snowfields and the stunning regional areas of Yass and Goulburn.

The displays at 87 Gozzard St, Gungahlin are open on Saturdays from 11 am – 3 pm and Sundays 9 am – 12 pm or call Dimitri Georgalis at Geocon on 0417 219 592 to book a private inspection at The Establishment.
