Perth

Poised for Prosperity Summary of the Poised for Prosperity Seminar, 7 Dec 2011. Renowned demographer Bernard Salt advised a packed audience that Perth was on the threshold of an amazing decade.

But Bernard also said that people’s lifestyles were evolving along with a new trend known as ‘apartmentia’. “Perthites are just like other National city residents and there is a greater expectation that there will be a range of choices with inner-city living,” Bernard said.

With Perth’s ideal position on the Indian rim, the city would grow to become an enviable lifestyle destination, with a cosmopolitan CBD and a high degree of security.

Typically residents are living 19 years more then their relatives in the 1930’s and as such they want to enjoy their lifestyle in a City where there are cafés, culture and a sense of vibrancy.

Mr Salt further advised that Perth’s reliance on mining would help catalyst other complementary industries including defence, education and aviation.

“With the proposed investment in Perth Waterfront, Riverside and Northbridge Link, Perth will be catalyst into a new era and CBD residents will enjoy the full benefits of a cosmopolitan lifestyle.”

“Premier Barnett is correct, because WA will not be looking to the East as a major driver for the state, but rather the North,” Mr Salt said.

“All the fundamentals are in place to ensure that Perth continues to drive the Australian economy for the next 5-10 years and on that basis the city is about to take a significant step, as we saw for Pyrmont in Sydney and Docklands in Melbourne.”

Above - Bernard Salt


Inset - Frank Allen

“The next decade will be an amazing period for Perth.” Western Australia is a standout state Mr Frank Allen, also a key note speaker, continued the positive news story for WA and Perth. Frank advised that WA had the strongest economy in the nation, delivering the fastest quarterly GSP growth in Q3 on record and accounting for half of the nation’s growth in that period. The Director of Property Markets for Westpac Banking Corp, Mr Allen also stated that fundamentals showed that the state had a prosperous medium to long term future, based strongly on the resources sector. “While there is some concern that the world economic growth will slow in 2012, in the medium to long term Perth is perfectly poised to take advantage of the expansion being experienced in evolving countries such as India and China,” said Mr Allen.

At present WA incomes are on average 15-25% higher than the rest of the nation, residential vacancy rates are falling and rental yields are increasing. Given the economic outlook for the State and the low level of supply currently underway, this is a sound foundation for growth. “Overall WA is Australia’s stand out state and hence Perth people should have more confidence that the market is moving into a positive cycle.” Mr Allen concluded by stating that Perth prices were unlikely to fall further. “Perth and WA are performing ahead of the rest of the nation and in fact is Australia’s key driver,” Mr Allen said. Perth will certainly evolve over the next 5-10 years and the key success factors such as rental yield will be sustained. While Perth CBD prices have fallen overall just 2% since 2006, it is still a very affordable location and hence any current purchaser would benefit in the medium to long term.

Finbar Lifestyle Summer 2012

Now is the time to invest Finbar has been producing apartments in Western Australia and particularly in Perth for over 20 years. Finbar is the largest developer in this sector by far. Finbar has invested greatly in the CBD area, because the company is extremely confident that WA was somewhat buffered from the GFC due to the state healthy resources sector. Finbar decision to invite Frank Allen and Bernard Salt to Perth was in fact to also share their views of this good news that Perth is ‘Poised for Prosperity’ to the general public. Mr Darren Pateman, Finbar’s Managing Director mentioned that “72% of first release of Adagio Apartments at Symphony City has been sold and construction has only just commenced. That means that many of our buyers will be able to buy at 2011 prices and not have to settle until 2013/2014 when they have realised positive growth for their current property.”

The full benefit of Adagio is that this will also be the final apartment, at this price point, on Terrace Road, and such if you purchase an Adagio apartment now, you will have an incredible view of the Swan River, starting from just $800,000. Adagio will be joined by two further premium apartment complexes and as such will become a precinct in its own right known as Symphony City. With the cultural heart of the CBD about to be kick started with the Perth Waterfront and Riverside projects, Adagio will represent the only real choice for inner-city lifestyle living. Finbar have a few number off the plan apartments, such as the recently launched AU Apartments (opposite the Perth Mint), Knightsgate Residences, St Marks Apartments, Pelago West Apartments, Lime Apartments, and two other apartments that are due for completion in the next couple of months namely 18 on Plain and Fairlanes Perth. Again these apartments are built to the highest Finbar standard and will represent a viable investment over the next 5 to 10 years. Whatever your decision is in regards to purchasing an apartment, the overall good news is that Perth is still a positive performer, and in fact WA is the only state in Australia to be moving into a growth cycle. On that basis WA is the state in which to invest and buyers can be confident that they will realise positive growth for their properties over the medium to long term. ■

Adagio’s luxury apartments will be an extremely rare commodity as the opportunity for buyers to secure a brand new apartment on Terrace Road in East Perth becomes less and less. Symphony City will be built upon one of the last large development sites on Terrace Road. Terrace Road is the most desirable address within the inner-city CBD. As the first of four landmark buildings within the eagerly anticipated Symphony City, Adagio is the apartment complex that will set the tone for what is destined to become Perth’s definitive riverside development. Meaning ‘restful, at ease’, Adagio will be an oasis of calm in the city, promising an exclusive luxury lifestyle. As a privileged resident, you’ll enjoy the very best facilities and amenities including the 25-metre lap pool, the inviting spa or the state of the art gymnasium. Why not invite friends over to enjoy the onsite theatre!

Adagio offers 114 luxuriously appointed apartments over 23 storeys with a choice of two and three-bedroom apartments, as well as a subpenthouse and penthouse, all boasting spacious open-plan layouts, large balconies and the finest finishes. Almost all apartments include river views. The minimum two bedroom apartment size is 102sqm of internal living, which is larger than the typical Terrace Road apartment. The emphasis by Finbar for Adagio has been one of creating ‘the best on Terrace Road’. The specifications are higher than any other development on this road with items like double glazing, electric blinds, timber floor, timber veneer entrance door, higher 2.59m ceilings, 40mm bench tops, Miele appliances and reverse cycle ducted air-conditioning all included. This vision as to what living in the City of Perth will all be about is coming together with the redevelopment of the Perth City Waterfront near the Bell Tower and also the Riverside Redevelopment Precinct that is getting under way, near the causeway. These two areas will provide a real increase in the facilities and services that the city has to offer with many riverside restaurants and cafés being planned within these schemes.
