Six-storey mixed development approved for Kingston Foreshore

The ACT government has approved plans for a six-storey mixed development on a prime Kingston foreshore waterfront spot. The Sapphire development would see 79 apartments of two-, three- and four-bedroom along with six penthouses along Honeysett View with prices starting from $839,900.

Developers Keggins lodged the development application in November 2017, which was approved this week. Keggins bought the waterfront block at the foreshore’s peninsula precinct at an auction in June 2016. It paid $21.65 million for the 3697 square-metre site, the most expensive sale of land in the lakeside region.

The development application from local developer Keggins Estate was approved this week. Keggins will deliver the 79-unit mixed-use development on Kingston Foreshore’s prime waterfront peninsula along Honeysett View.

Sales will launch early next month. The development includes two, three and four-bedroom apartments, along with six penthouses, with prices starting from $839,900. The ground floor will have a small area of commercial space and there will be two levels of basement car parking.

Plans for six-storey mixed development for Kingston foreshore prime waterfront spot

A six-storey, 79-unit mixed commercial and residential development is planned for one of Kingston foreshore’s prime waterfront spots.

Canberra developer Keggins Homes has applied for an exemption from having to do an environmental impact statement. The block is identified on the register of contaminated sites and asbestos has been found in soil testing, including in the footprint of a former rowing club building on site. The rowing club is being demolished.
