90 minute sellout for Erskineville apartments
Peter O'Meagher 30 JUL 2014
The overwhelming demand for apartments in the final stage of Erko confirmed the general public had embraced the vision of a functional, pet-friendly community in keeping with the established character of Erskineville.
The 41 apartments in East at Erko sold out within 90 minutes, a great result for the 1.6-ha development which Leighton Properties and its joint venture partner, LaSalle Investment Management had unveiled two years earlier. The Erko precinct has appealed to a varied demographic of ages, professionals, families and investors. The apartments and terrace houses blend sustainable, architectural design with high quality public spaces, tree-lined laneways and streets, pedestrian zones and bike paths.
"Erko continues our strategy to develop urban communities close to transport and lifestyle amenities," said Gavin Tonnet, National Head of Residential at Leighton Properties.
As all three buildings in stage one - comprising 263 apartments - reach their full height in July, the construction workforce will grow to around 280 people, with joinery, plaster boarding, bricklaying and painting duties moving into full swing.
