The art of living
An innovative design from two of Canberra’s leading architectural
firms, Arté is an integrated retail, commercial and residential
development that captures the energy of its Braddon location.
Positioned to take advantage of the cosmopolitan growth of Lonsdale
Street and within walking distance of Civic, Arté will offer residents
the opportunity for inner-city living in the heart of Braddon.
The ground floor will incorporate a café and retail precinct to be
populated by independently run eateries and boutique shopping,
while the first floor will be given over entirely to office space.
The residential component of the development will be in the form
of 57 apartments, with one-bedroom units selling for an average of
$420,000 and two-bedrooms for $530,000.
All apartments are set to have an energy rating of at least 5.3
according to the Nationwide Home Energy Rating Scheme
From the second floor up, Arté’s residential apartments will be above
the direct hustle and bustle of street level to offer reflective living
spaces that are never too far removed from inner-city living.
Arté will also feature well-appointed kitchens, stylish bathrooms,
contemporary interiors, lift access and a rooftop terrace. The
development, which is the result of collaboration between Dezignteam
and Ring and Associates, is set for completion in early-2012.
