Buyers have secured the purchase of 117 apartments within the 142-unit stage two of the Platinum project at Victoria Park on the weekend.
The sales ranged from $499,000 for a one-bedroom units to $1.3 million for three-bedroom apartments through Link Marketing Services, who maintained strong Asian buyer connections.
The initial 180 apartments in the first stage of Platinum sold off-the-plan within 30 days of release in late 2012.
Payce has started construction of Platinum, which comprises five buildings, each with its own identity and colour scheme. The first stage is slated for completion by July 2014.
The project was designed by architect Nick Turner, with interiors by Koichi Takada.
The current 142 apartments are within a 15-storey complex which has an inter-connecting eight level building.
Payce’s earlier buildings at Victoria Park – Apex and East Village – sold out within four and two months respectively in mid-2011.
“The only thing Victoria Park lacks is shopping facilities, and that will change early next year when Payce completes a major fresh food and retail centre called the East Village Urban Marketplace,” said Basil Klevansky, managing director of LINK Marketing Services.
“It will have up to 50 specialty shops with an emphasis on fresh produce, a Coles supermarket, and a health and fitness club with a 25-metre indoor swimming pool,” he said.
