Just as the face of every big city is changing, so is the way we choose to live. Increasingly, people are looking to live closer to work and nearer to the vibrant hub of the city, with its restaurants, cafes, bars, theatres and retail stores.

The Fairlanes Perth mixed-use development has been designed for just such a lifestyle. Located in the thriving east end of the city of Perth and developed by Finbar Group, Fairlanes Perth is being built on the site of the old Fairlanes Bowling Alley at 181 Adelaide Terrace.

Finbar managing director John Chan says the company took the historical significance of the site into consideration when planning the 27-storey residential and commercial tower, which was designed by SS Chang Architects.

"The relevance of the site to the community makes this a special development," Chan says. "We believed it was important to create a new entertainment focal point at the east end of the city. Consequently, a public plaza and terraced amphitheatre will form a key part of the development."

In addition to the amphitheatre and stage, which will be used for unobtrusive music performances, the north-facing public forecourt will include a water feature, seating, grass and shade trees. The development also provides for ground-level cafe, restaurant and wine bar tenancies that will activate this part of Adelaide Terrace by day and night.

Architect Sin Chang says to further enhance the street appeal, the design maximises sunlight and public viewing corridors to the Swan River.

"We wanted to create an inviting and dynamic public space that will become an invaluable component of the Adelaide precinct," he says.

The lower seven floors of Fairlanes Perth are given over to commercial space, with apartments starting on the eighth level and culminating in three spacious penthouses on the top floor.

The 128 apartments, many of which will have views to the river or city, range in size from 87m² to 119m², and will have balconies between 15m² and 34m². The penthouses will have sweeping river and city views and will offer up to 180m² of living space and balconies of almost 170m².

Chan says each apartment will be finished to the highest specifications. Kitchens, for example, will feature granite or reconstituted stone benchtops, glass splashbacks, European stainless steel appliances and polished floor tiles. Apartment interiors will also feature high-quality carpets in the living areas, and wall-mounted air conditioning.

"With security an important consideration for many home buyers today, the development will include a security camera surveillance system and keyless electronic entry to the ground floor and basement lift lobbies and car park," Chan says. "An audio intercom system will also control access."

Leisure facilities will include a 25m lap pool, outdoor spa, gas barbecue area and a poolside lounge with sun loungers and tables. In addition there will be a games room with pool table, bar and refrigerator, and a fully equipped gym and sauna.

Residents of Fairlanes Perth will also have the exclusive use of the Sky Lounge on the 25th floor, which provides expansive river and city views.

Agents Peter Copley and Robin Schneider are confident the apartments will sell quickly.

"Finbar has an established reputation as a developer of quality projects in Western Australia one that always finishes projects to a high standard and on time," says Copley. "Already, a huge amount of interest has been shown by prospective buyers."

Schneider says the apartments are well priced for the current market. Buyers and investors have the opportunity to purchase apartments today at reasonable prices and to reap the benefits later when the market builds back up again.
