Neighbouring the river, park and city in East Perth, Haven Apartment's location had enormous lifestyle potential.
Completed in June 2014, Haven comprises of 76 one, two & 3 bedroom apartments architecturally designed to maximise space efficiency.
Prior to Blackburne’s involvement, there was an existing approval for 39 luxury apartments on the site. Following the GFC, this original scheme was deferred due to tight credit conditions and a struggling property market.
A revised DA was subsequently obtained for Haven Apartments – a seven storey mixed-use development comprising of 3 offices and 76 apartments. The Hillam Architects brief was to produce ‘affordable luxury’ – compact, well-designed, well-finished apartments that could be sold at prices starting below $400,000 for a one bedroom and $500,000 for a two bedroom apartment
Blackburne quickly discovered that buyers were willing to trade off ‘space for place’ with Haven. Following marketing launch in January 2012, the project achieved presales within 12 weeks and was sold-out by October.
