World-class facilities attracting high flyers

Writing the next chapter in Subiaco’s revitalisation, Blackburne’s freshly coined One Subiaco development is set to become a landmark project for the historic suburb and has already attracted the attention of a famous cricketer and one of Australia’s top corporate high flyers.

You don’t need to be an A-list celebrity to secure an apartment, however, with units starting from $400,000.

Blackburne Managing Director Paul Blackburne said a new $1 million display suite would open for viewing at 24 Rokeby Road on October 26, with interested parties able to register to preview it before the public launch.

Mr Blackburne said even in a depressed market he had already seen significant interest from potential buyers.

Replacing the vacant Subiaco Pavilion Market site with a spectacular residential precinct, the $280 million apartment development is poised to breathe new life into an area long-maligned for its lack of buzz and activity.

Touted as Western Australia’s largest residential project to date, One Subiaco will be made up of three apartment buildings, all with their own unique character and architectural style.

Named after streets well known to locals – Rokeby, Roberts and Seddon – the boutique buildings will showcase a level of luxury never before seen in WA, according to Mr Blackburne.

“This iconic site deserved something special,” he told West Real Estate.

Designed by Subiaco architecture firm Hames Sharley, each of the boutique developments will comprise one, two and three-bedroom apartments, and penthouses which contain up to six living quarters.

Encompassing 22 residences, the Rokeby building will sit on the corner of Rokeby and Roberts roads, featuring bespoke apartments that embrace earthy and natural tones.

The heritage-inspired Roberts building will contain 90 residences, paying homage to the historic terrace homes that line the streets of Subiaco.

The Seddon development will be the site of 125 apartments, boasting larger floor plans and spacious terraces that display captivating views across Perth.

Recreating the luxuries seen in holiday destinations such as Bali and Dubai, residents at One Subiaco will have access to a $3 million rooftop oasis located on the sixth level of the Roberts building.

Convincing western suburbs locals to embrace high-rise projects is notoriously difficult, but Mr Blackburne said One Subiaco was a mixed-use development done right.

“The Pavilion Markets site on Rokeby Road will become a vibrant mix of alfresco cafes, restaurants, artisan retailers and pop-up market stalls, all surrounded by airy laneways and pocket parks,” he said.

Construction is due to commence in June next year for a planned completion date of mid-2022.

“As a local developer we are proud to be involved in this iconic site and we feel a great sense of responsibility to deliver something world-class to the people of WA,” Mr Blackburne said.
