Denman Prospect will soon be home to a development of 410 units, complete with a roof terrace and swimming pools with palm trees, if the plans of Canberra developer Core Developments are approved. The development has been largely welcomed by the Molonglo Valley Community Forum, but a representative of the local residents’ group expressed concern about the area’s tropical-inspired design. The proposed Boulevard, or BLVD, development will include three separate buildings up to seven stories each, on the corner of John Gorton Drive and Holborow Avenue. According to the development application documents, the total cost of works is estimated at up to $ 51 million. MORE PROPERTY NEWS: Core Development Director Ryan Cappello said the area, designed by Canberra architectural firm Judd Studio, would feel like a “luxury vacation” destination. “It consists of the affordable option of one-bedroom lofts with five and a half meter glass windows enclosing all three buildings, with large light-filled cavities between each level, and it fits all the way into the three-bedroom penthouse with roof terraces and landscaped areas,” he said. One-bedroom apartments are estimated to start at $ 335,000, while two-bedroom apartments are expected to be priced at $ 450,000 and above. Sir. Cappello said the buildings will be well located to allow for public access and green spaces, while local amenities will include car charging stations, a bicycle repair shop, co-working space and a private dining room for rent. “We are currently looking at all the common areas that are powered by solar energy,” he said. Ryan Hemsley, interim spokesman for the Molonglo Valley Community Forum, said the proposal made good use of green space, but questioned whether the tropical style was the right fit for the area. “I am pleased to see that this development has a significant part of the common green space on the site, certainly higher than many of the other developments we have seen in other parts of the Molonglo Valley to date,” he said. “I am less convinced by the Miami Vice-inspired landscaping with its heavy emphasis on palm trees and pink flamingos. But in the end, there is nothing in the territory plan that will prevent them from taking that approach.” Overall, Mr Hemsley welcomed the Boulevard proposal. “I think given the rapid pace at which this development is coming through, it’s hard to measure society’s emotions,” he said. “I think what people are most worried about is, is it in line with the zoning plan? Is it in line with the rental conditions for the land?” “I am pleased to see that this development is in line with the maximum number of housing units outlined in the rental conditions for the plot.” The development will also include part of affordable housing in accordance with the suburban agency’s guidelines.
