Keggins acquires 11-13 State Circle in Forrest in rare opportunity for luxury living

  • Parliament House of Australia rising through the fog.

How do you top a ground-breaking development with unrivalled views of Lake Burley Griffin? For Keggins, the answer came in the form of a rare piece of the Parliamentary Triangle.

“Keggins created a market through the success of Sapphire, and proved our commitment to design and quality. We were focused on acquiring our next landmark project, and wanted something truly iconic and unique,” said Stephanie Davies, Keggins’ Development Sales & Marketing Manager.

“A 3768m2 parcel of land situated opposite Parliament House on iconic State Circle fit the bill.”

Keggins saw the Forrest location—which hadn’t been on the market since 1962—as an exciting opportunity to diversify their luxury offering and offer a new style of product.

Although approved on acquisition for 42 apartments, the leading Canberra property developer chose to significantly reduce that number to create expansive residences that enhance liveability and fit effortlessly into their surrounds.

“We have completely re-designed the site in a bold move to complement and enrich the area,” said Stephanie.

“This project is particularly exciting, as it’s bringing a truly global flavour to Canberra—ushering in a new era of design unlike anything this city has ever seen. It continues our commitment to raising the bar and creating unique spaces against the Canberra landscape.”

Renowned Melbourne Architects Parallel Workshop are the visionaries behind the residences, which have been designed with privacy and convenience top of mind.

“We want to create homes that our clients don’t need to leave—they should be tranquil refuges where everything you need is at your fingertips,” said Stephanie.

“When the right location comes together with people-centric design, the result is harmony—and that’s what we’re all about.”

11-13 State Circle in Forrest will be unveiled soon.
