MAB’s final tower is its crowning glory
01 Mar 2011
MAB Corporation has launched its final high-rise development in Docklands, a 600-apartment twin-tower complex to be known at The Quays.
Rising to 32 levels above Harbour Esplanade, the south tower will nestle beside the Conder, with the shorter north tower taking up position on the corner of Docklands Drive. The development also includes a substantial podium section.
MAB says The Quays will be its final residential offering in NewQuay East before concentrating on commercial development on the remaining undeveloped blocks.
The developer is progressing on its low-rise residential developments in NewQuay West and is believed to be close to taking on unsold commercial parcels of Waterfront City from ING Real Estate.
The Quays’ striking glass facade contrasts sharply with the mostly concrete-dominated earlier towers along NewQuay Promenade.
MAB managing director Andrew Buxton said the 100-metre high south tower would be the tallest building in the precinct and would be a powerful architectural statement for NewQuay and the Docklands waterfront.
The south tower will house 275 apartments. The north tower will comprises 230 apartments and the podium will have 95 apartments.
MAB’s residential general manager Kevin Hunt said: “This is an exclamation mark on a key site and the public response has been very positive with strong interest before its formal launch.”
The podium of The Quays will provide a vibrant social hub for the residents. The ground floor will include a health club with a 25-metre swimming pool, spa, sauna, gymnasium and a yoga studio.
On level one, residents will be able to work, relax and entertain in the Residents’ Club with exclusive access to a library, business centre, private dining room and cinema lounge.
The podium will be crowned with an expansive roof-top garden adjacent to a tennis court, clubhouse and barbeque facilities.
“This landmark building is a unique opportunity for buyers to secure an apartment, and lifestyle, in the entertainment heart of NewQuay,” Mr Hunt said.
Prices for the apartments range from $350,000 for a one-bedroom to $1.2 million for a three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment with a study and two car spaces.
Sales opened on Feburary 26 and construction is due to start this year.
