The man behind an upcoming Subiaco development that could revolutionise the area says the complex’s $3 million rooftop area will offer six-star luxury.

The 2000sqm rooftop in the One Subiaco complex will include a heated pool, cabanas, a fitness centre, sauna, a private dining room, a barbecue and an outdoor lounge, an urban orchard, cocktail lounge and VIP concierge services.

Paul Blackburne says it will rival the world’s most prestigious hotels, based on his observation of other resorts. He believes it will offer a higher level of service than any other apartment development.

This includes private concierge and personal assistance services, some of which involve extra costs, including grocery shopping and completing local errands, cleaning services, transport assistance, pet walking, physiotherapy and massage services.

There will also be a range of community events such as yoga and tai chi classes on the rooftop and cooking classes in the chef’s kitchen.

The buildings have been rated as four star, which is defined by Green Building Council of Australia as “best practice”.

Green initiatives include electric-car charging points, high efficiency lighting, a gas central hot-water system and photovoltaic cells.

Leftover food from on-site restaurants will be dehydrated and then used as compost at local parks and gardens.

The project includes three buildings. The tallest, called the Seddon, is 24 stories high and will have 125 apartments.

The Rokeby building will have 22 residences, and the Roberts building will have 90 apartments. The penthouse costs $17 million.
