Top 3 Suburbs to look at if you want to buy an apartment

 

There are so many great apartment developments on offer at the moment. From breathtaking new developments to established, highly sort-after complexes, we have become spoiled for choice if we want to pursue the apartment lifestyle.

Here are our recommendations for 3 great suburbs to buy an apartment to live in or rent out. 

 

Kingston 

As Kingston locals know, strolling out your front door and onto the bustling boardwalk is something very special. From crispy-fried wild duck to Canberra’s most celebrated burger; from sparkling wine to freshly pressed orange juice – find the best bite during the day or night at the Kingston Foreshore precinct.

This enviable array of restaurants, bars and cafés means local lakeside cuisine is never more than a short walk from home.

It’s your choice. Stroll the length of the Foreshore boardwalk where walking routes, cycle paths and landscaped gardens unwind around Lake Burley Griffin. Or escape the everyday with a picnic at Norgrove Park, where over a hectare of landscaped land, 2500 square metres of wetlands and an abundant eco-pond offer the perfect spot to let go of the working week.

Enjoy the vibrant convenience of a newly established waterfront hub, amongst echoes of our Capital’s history. Meet the artisans within Canberra Glassworks, or walk around the heritage listed former Transport Depot – now home to the local merchants selling their wares at the Old Bus Depot Markets.

Take advantage of your prime position. Nestled only a kilometre from the Parliamentary Triangle, the Jerrabomberra Wetlands and the boat harbour, you can easily get to wherever your day takes you. Travel to Canberra Airport in 10 minutes, or take a fast commute into Canberra City on one of six bus routes.

 

New Acton 

NewActon is a mixed use precinct incorporating landscaped gardens, art, retail, hotel, restaurants, cinemas, residential and commercial spaces all linked by an inspired vision. NewActon is more than just a place to live, work and play--it’s a living art and design precinct that has won more awards (local and national) across architecture, property development and urban design than any other in Canberra’s history.

With a prime position in the city, by the lake, these apartments have unparalleled views over Lake Burley Griffin, Parliament House and other national icons along with all the necessary amenities right at the doorstep. Located in Canberra’s most awarded precinct, these affordable inner city one, two and three bedroom apartments (spread across NewActon East, South and Nishi) have long term potential for capital growth. 

Not to mention the fabulous current future development planned for the lake and The Grevillea Park Master plan which provides a vision for Grevillea Park as a recreational hub for community use.

Braddon 

Home to the up and coming trendsetters of Canberra, the former light industrial area of Braddon has changed dramatically over the past decade. A carefully planned redevelopment has created a thriving entertainment and residential precinct right on the doorstep of the Canberra CBD.

But why do people love Braddon so much? It’s the lifestyle, the endless options and the fact that you are in the heart of what’s trendy in Canberra. 

Hip suburbs like Braddon are at the leading edge of cosmopolitan trends, and offer an unusually rich source of information on future consumer directions. Like fashion trends, not everything that happens in a hip suburb will become mainstream, but much of it will be taken up by the broader consumer market in some form. 

Now is the time to get your foot in the door before the market booms in this up and coming suburb and this best kept secret is out.
