Parkes’ only residential address can be found at The Griffin, a luxury apartment development from the local and respected team at Amalgamated Property Group.
On Canberra’s prestigious Constitution Avenue, with sweeping views in every direction, The Griffin is at the front of the lake and the edge of the city – the perfect location for anyone who wants to be at the centre of it all.
LJ Hooker Project Marketing ACT Director, Andrew Ligdopoulos, says The Griffin’s prime position in one of the most enviable spots in the Territory is absolutely second to none.
“Everyone talks about location,” he says, “but The Griffin is truly a couple of minutes’ walk to the Lake Burley Griffin foreshore, but only a kilometre from the centre of the city. You’ve got the best of both worlds – the accessibility to what you need but the spaciousness you want.”
The one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses at The Griffin are available in a number of floorplans, designed to suit nearly every buyer, and they are some of the most generous with space that we’ve seen. The level of thought from Amalgamated Property Group that has gone into these floorplans is outstanding, to maximise space, light and outlooks throughout every home. Ligdopoulos says sales have been popular among future owner-occupiers.
“We’re finding The Griffin is in demand with up-sizers, people who are looking for larger, high-quality apartments.”
The development has also been popular with ‘right-sizers’, who have typically come from family homes with large backyards, and are now looking for “something more sustainable to fit their new lifestyle … lock up and leave”.
“There’s also a high proportion of younger professional couples and first home buyers who are buying there as well,” he says. “There’s also interest from investors who are seeing the benefits of all this amenity offered within The Griffin, who can envision this would be a long-term safe investment in a quality building.”
Ligdopoulos says The Griffin has been designed with its unique location in mind, the buildings paying homage to their home within the Parliamentary Triangle.
“Given it’s located in a historic part of Canberra, a lot of the design and material elements in The Griffin are reading off those national institutions,” he says, institutions such as the National Library, the National Gallery and the Australian War Memorial.
“The other part that’s quite unique is the heritage component of the project, which is the ANZAC Park West Pavilion that was built in 1969 and the grounds surrounding it that will be retained as part of the development.”
Outside of their luxury apartments where every apartment feels like a penthouse, residents of The Griffin will enjoy a range of premium amenities. Living close to the city centre as well as the suburb centres of Canberra’s inner neighbourhoods, The Griffin offers not just a place to live, it offers a lifestyle.
Communal spaces for residents will include large podium gardens and a hotel-style lobby area with a concierge service, as well as lifestyle inclusions such as a state-of-the-art gym with weights, cardio and fitness rooms, an indoor 25-metre lap pool, sauna and even a steam room.
“You’re close to everything the city has to offer in terms of work, entertainment, shopping and restaurants, and this location means you’ve got a choice of some very special outlooks such as towards Lake Burley Griffin or Mount Ainslie,” Ligdopoulos says. “You can even take the direct pedestrian underpass that will sit alongside The Griffin and within three minutes you’re at the water’s edge and can enjoy Canberra’s biggest backyard.”
Apartments at The Griffin range in price from $430,000 to $2.95 million, with an EER of 5.0-8.0.
