Convenience meets luxury

Tech-forward residences wow Canberra buyers

For Canberra buyers with busy professional careers, study, or young families, genuine convenience and tech-savvy living are essential requirements. These factors are at the heart of a new JWLand development, De Burgh at Northbourne Village, just 3km from the CBD and Australian National University. Construction is due to commence later in 2023, for completion around mid-2025.

Paul Ryan, a senior economist, PropTrack, says the location of De Burgh – just 600m from two light rail stops – clearly caters to this trend. He says a desire for convenience has seen the value of ACT apartments remain solid, with the median unit value up 1.4% over the past year to $620,000.

With absolute convenience comes the expectation of having the latest in technology, which De Burgh has put front and centre. There’s a smart lock system as an optional upgrade, so you can open and close your apartment’s front door using your phone. De Burgh also features app-controlled air conditioning, heating and lighting as a standard inclusion, so residents can have their apartment set just as they like before arriving home. Other tech features include fibre-to-the-premises for speedy data connectivity and an audio-visual security intercom.

“That’s one of our biggest points of difference in the market. Not many developments offer this level of technical capability,” says Nick Babic, JWLand project marketing manager.

Prices at De Burgh start from $440,640 for a studio, $479,400 for one bedroom, $678,300 for two bedrooms and from $945,000 for three bedrooms.
