The first stage of a $300 million development set to transform the Kingborough region in the state's south is officially underway, with the breaking of ground by the Premier Peter Gutwein.
Kings Quarter at Kingston Park is a project that will see the building of 360 homes, commercial office space and entertainment facilities.
Sydney company Traders In Purple is undertaking the project. Development Director Jennifer Cooper says it's an historic day.
"Kings Quarter is an innovative residential, retail, and lifestyle destination, which has the potential to reinvent Kingston and is the Kingborough region’s most significant urban regeneration project to date."
“We attribute the growing interest in Kings Quarter to the fact it is located in the heart of Kingston and it is offering a diverse range of housing types including freestanding homes, townhouses and apartments."
She says homes are energy efficient and offer low-maintenance living.
“Kings Quarter is all about lifestyle and community. The project will provide beautiful streetscapes with extensive landscaping and well-lit footpaths to encourage residents to incorporate a healthy stroll into their daily routine. The private Residents Club available for use by all Kings Quarter residents for relaxing or socialising, as well as a pocket park with BBQ facilities and a residents’ garden form part of the first stage of 80 homes,” Ms Cooper said.
