Rich in contemporary styling, Dusk is a stunning new addition to the acclaimed Republic precinct.

Located in Belconnen, this suburb is considered to be Canberra’s largest and fast growing Town Centre, providing access to Lake Ginninderra, schools, shops and much more.

Light and space unite in the cleverly designed apartments, which offer stone bench tops, tiled splashback and abundance of storage options.

An entire floor is dedicated to private amenity including a library, lounge, gourmet chef’s kitchen, dining room as well as a rooftop terrace.

Designed for people with high physical support needs, the single-level apartments feature customisable kitchen, laundry and bathroom features and a two-way communications system that enables tenants to contact concierge services in the event of an emergency or for unplanned support. Apartments are assistive technology ready,  and have structural provisions for the installation of ceiling hoists.

The average apartment size (internal area) for the Dusk apartments is 73.2 square metres.

The beautifully presented apartments have been designed to achieve Platinum level certification under Livable Housing Design Guidelines and meet High Physical Support design requirements under the NDIS.

The apartments will be enrolled with the NDIA as Specialist Disability Accommodation 1 Bedroom, 1 Resident High Physical Support Apartments.

The apartments are due to complete in early 2020.
