New neighbours for Docklands

27 Aug 2012

New neighbours for Docklands Image

Docklands has welcomed some new neighbours with the opening of the Lacrosse stage one east tower at 675 LaTrobe St.

The first residents of the Charter Hall development began moving into the building on June 26 and close to 100 apartments are now occupied.

A Charter Hall spokesperson said this number was increasing daily with new tenants and owners taking up residence.

The 18-level tower houses 312 apartments. It is anticipated the building will be close to fully occupied by December.

“We have found that Lacrosse residents are predominantly young professionals and students working and studying in the CBD,” the spokesperson said.

20-year-old Kimberley Beck fits the bill as one of Lacrosse and Docklands’ newest residents.

Kimberley moved into the building last month and loves the Docklands lifestyle.

Kimberley’s 10th-floor apartment faces the water and she said she loved waking up each morning to the view of the harbour and the Bolte Bridge.

Even before moving to Docklands, Kimberley had already spent time in the area visiting her favourite restaurant, Berth.

Now that she lives so close by Docklands News is sure she will become a regular.

“I think I’ve already been there about six times since moving in,” Kimberly said.

Construction on the $165 million Charter Hall development began in May 2010.

Construction on the Lacrosse stage two west tower is yet to start. Developer Pan Urban was unable to provide a time-frame for construction.
