By Emily Moseley-GillisThe Riverview Condos have been a hit in Australia’s capital and have been voted one of the top five best new condominium developments in Australia, according to the latest real estate rankings.
The Riverfronts are being touted as a new model of high-quality living in a low-rise development in the CBD, and they’re getting rave reviews from those who’ve been living there for the past two years.
But it’s not just the high-end of the market who are impressed with the project.
The project has been voted by our readers as one of Australia’s top new developments and a great place to live, says our managing editor, Sarah McBride.
“This is an exceptional, high-performance development with a high standard of design and amenities and an outstanding view across the River at the intersection of Central and Swan Streets,” she said.
“The River View has been built on a very high-density footprint with a large mix of residential, commercial and office units and an extensive underground parking lot.”
“It is a very unique concept and the design of the River View makes it particularly appealing for the location,” she added.
It is in a good position to capture the best of both worlds for the Riverfront’s owners, who have secured $2.7 million in financing from the NSW Government to complete the development.
The development has been designed by Australian firm, Nantos, and built by BHP Billiton.
The units range from two-storey to three-storeys, and there’s a lot of open space to create a space that’s well connected to the river.
The property is located at the heart of the new Riverview precinct, which is set to be the city’s new central business district.
“We’ve been working with a number of architects, engineers and builders to make sure that we can build a building that will be in the top level of design, that will make the Riverwalk feel more like a city, and the development is an ideal place for that,” said Ms McBride, who said the project is one of a number in the Riverwest, a suburb that sits on a beautiful river.
The project has the support of the NSW government, which will provide a $1 million grant to help pay for the development of the project and the construction of the public spaces that surround it.
The City of Sydney is also investing in the project, and is now investing in about half of the units.
The rest of the costs will be paid for by the developer.
“It’s an extraordinary opportunity to be part of an incredible project,” NSW Premier Mike Baird said.
The developer has been given approval for up to 40 more units.
It’s also expected that the project will be completed by 2019, with the remaining 40 units in operation by the end of 2020.
