Construction kicking off at Jolimont development

With construction set to commence, a new apartment precinct is helping turn this low-key postcode into a modern lifestyle haven.

Jolimont has long been overshadowed by its much more well-known neighbour, Subiaco. But a new development is setting the stage for this part of Perth to have its moment in the spotlight.

Florin Parkside is the latest apartment complex by the award-winning developer Stirling Capital.

Luxury living meets sustainability at Florin Parkside.

It follows on from Stirling Capital’s award-winning Cirque Apartments, a 20-storey residential development on the banks of the Canning River.

Its accolades include the National Award for High-Density Development category with the Urban Development Institute of Australia, as well as the Russel Perry Award for Urban Development Excellence and the Harold Krantz award for design.

Now, Florin Parkside is expected to be one of the most coveted new addresses in Jolimont postcode.

A dream location 

Located 4km from the Perth CBD, Jolimont is a relaxed yet central neighbourhood teeming with potential.

Dominated by parks and open spaces, it’s also a spot with significant visual and lifestyle appeal.

It also ticks all the boxes regarding amenities, with Rokeby Road — the bustling centre of Subiaco — only a stroll away.

The Floreat Beach shoreline is within easy distance for the weekends, and residents also have access to Wembley Sports Park, Goodridge Reserve and the Gold Netball Centre.

Connectivity is another benefit with trains leaving the local Daglish Train station every 20 minutes.

Florin Parkside features 63 exclusive family-sized apartments in the heart of Jolimont.

With so much to offer, it’s no wonder Jolimont is an area in demand, says Angus Moore economist at realestate.com.au.

“The median price is $425,00 per unit, which is up about 20% on the last year,” he says. “This compares to 9% for Perth overall in the same period.”

There’s no sign of this slowing, with demand for local property heating up, Moore adds.

“We’re seeing an increase in buyers from New South Wales and Victoria that are looking west,” he explains.

In fact, WA property searches from NSW and Victorians have surged by 47% and 42% respectively year-on-year to May ’22.

A new kind of living

Construction on Florin Parkside kicks off in August, with the new residential address already garnering plenty of attention.

It boasts spacious abodes that speak to the surrounding parks and natural landscapes, says Jimmy Thompson, Design Director at acclaimed architectural firm MJA Studio.

“We’ve really made the most of the history of the site, which is a former nursery, and its parkside location,” Thompson says.

“We’re bringing that natural aspect into these homes with a whole series of garden terraces in the walkways and the balcony areas.

“We were focused on catching as much light as possible. You look out at these amazing fig trees and you have great city views, as well.”

Florin Parkside is in the heart of LandCorp’s leafy Parkside Walk urban redevelopment area.

Sustainability is front and centre, with northern aspects brining in light. Cross-ventilation and ceiling fans limit the need for air conditioning.

Plus, there are also the bells and whistles expected in a luxury development, including bike storage, an air-conditioned gym, communal barbecue areas, a residence lounge, and even a pet wash.

Luxury abodes

The commitment to sustainability is also continued within each private dwelling, Luke Reinecke, managing director of Stirling Capital, says.

“Sustainability has been carefully considered through each step of the design process,” Reinecke explains.

“From the earliest designs through to project completion, we consider how to optimise energy and water savings wherever possible.

“That includes everything from building material choices, through to the selection of fridges and washing machines with high-efficiency ratings for energy and water performance.”

A range of living options and resident amenities are inspired by the stunning natural surrounds.

“These are very large family-sized apartments, which have a very high standard of finish,” Reinecke shares.

Apartments are fitted with appliances from leading brand V-Zug, while bespoke joinery, storage, built-in robes and wireless charging stations are just a few of the additional features.

“With Florin, we’re trying to build high-quality apartments that are sustainable, but that people want to live in and get a genuine benefit from,” Reinecke says.

“Florin Parkside is about focusing on people first and foremost: how they live, interact, and connect within spaces. Creating lasting value through high-quality design and inclusions, spacious apartments, and world-class amenity in a location that offers universal appeal.”
