Allhomes. Domain. Canberra. August 21, 2017. An artist impression of Jardin stage two, a 12-storey building planned for Greenway’s Southquay precinct. It includes more than 300 apartments, plus ground-floor commercial space.More than 300 extra apartments are earmarked for Tuggeranong’s Southquay precinct.
The second stage of lakeside development Jardin includes plans for 339 residential units across 12 storeys.
The building, at the corner of Anketell Street and Oakden Street, will also feature ground-floor cafes and restaurants, plus a rooftop terrace for residents.
Plans for the project’s second stage have been lodged with the ACT government on behalf of developer Empire Global and Stewart Architecture.
Empire Global sales manager James Herbert said the building would feature a range of quality inclusions, with many apartments boasting sweeping views across the Tuggeranong Valley.
A standout feature is a spacious rooftop terrace with a barbecue area, fire pits and a walking track.
“A lot of time and energy has gone into the thoughtful design,” Mr Herbert said.
“There is going to be a couple of nice penthouses with three bedrooms on the top level, with mountain views and lake views. Related: Jardin apartments built on green thinkingRelated: More apartments, townhouses slated for CanberraRelated: Brindabella Mountain views from Avani homes
“There are some really cool little studios as well – probably some of the most affordable prices seen in Canberra in many years.”
Mr Herbert expected a diverse range of buyers to be drawn to Jardin’s second stage, once it hit the market.
He said about 60 per cent of stage one apartments had already sold, with an almost-even split between first home buyers, downsizers and investors.
Jardin’s first stage includes 237 apartments and terrace-style homes and two rooftop gardens.

“All [buyers] are from the Tuggeranong Valley,” he said.
“There are 20-somethings who have grown up in Tuggeranong, buying their first place; downsizers who brought up their families in Tuggeranong and are selling their big house and yard; and mum and dad investors who own their own home and are using their equity to buy an investment property.”
Mr Herbert said Jardin’s location, close to Greenway’s main shopping drag and Lake Tuggeranong, was a key drawcard, as was the development’s inclusions and competitive prices.
Energy-efficiency is also a design priority. Stage one apartments will have an average energy-efficiency rating of 8.4 stars.
Mr Herbert said burgeoning development in Greenway – and the extra foot-traffic that will come with it – will have an “unbelievable” impact on businesses in the existing town centre.
“The whole area is going to pick up, I think.”
He expected construction of Jardin’s second two to begin next year, pending development application approval.
This includes a lease variation to amend the site’s purpose clause from 229 to 580 dwellings.
Completion is scheduled for 2020.
Construction of stage one is due to begin in October or November, while completion is set for mid-2019.
