Montague Markets & Residences at West End has proved a hit with buyers, who have snapped up more than 75 per cent of apartments in only five months, according to developer Pradella, who says the second stage will be fast tracked to meet demand.

Construction of the new residential, shopping and dining precinct is well advanced with the first stage on track to open in September 2020. The Stage 2 release will be known as Ferry Residences. Montague Residences’ first display apartments opened last month for private inspection, allowing customers an opportunity to experience up close the premium quality, world-class contemporary design.

Stage 1 of the landmark project, which is the crowning glory of Pradella’s visionary $1 billion Riverside West End community, features 89 luxurious one, two and three-bedroom apartments, along with alfresco dining and a vibrant landscaped public plaza.

Montague Markets will have a new full-line 3400sqm Woolworths supermarket – the first for West End – a BWS and around 15 specialty retailers, including popular Bou’s for Men barber shop, Tigerlamb hair salon, Ollie and Lloyd homewares and restaurants Fat Dumpling and Wara Sushi.

Pradella Director Kim Pradella said he was delighted to see the vision for Montague Markets unfolding coupled with the strong level of buyer interest in the new landmark precinct for West End. “We have been thrilled with the continuing strong demand since the official launch of apartment sales in February 2020, with the response in recognition of the new level of sophistication the project brings to the suburb,’’ he said.

“Many of the sales have been to owner-occupiers within the local area and they can’t wait to be part of a new, masterplanned community which will offer them an unmatched inner-city lifestyle with the best of West End under one roof. Residents will enjoy the ultimate convenience of having daily shopping needs and dining opportunities right on their doorstep.”

With the countdown now on to the completion of construction, Mr Pradella encouraged customers interested in living at Montague Markets to act now to avoid disappointment. “With three new furnished display apartments open, now is the perfect time for customers to be among the first to see for themselves how this inspiring project will become West End’s new lifestyle hub.’’  Featuring styling by Coco Republic and Noble House, the display apartments have been designed to a wide range of tastes, with contemporary but timeless colours and textures.

Montague Markets will have more than 2000sqm of private recreational facilities including a lush rooftop skygarden with panoramic views of the entire city skyline. A lagoon pool and shaded lounge deck, outdoor cinema with sculpted viewing platforms, yoga space and lawn area with a waterfall backdrop will add to its ambience. Residents will also have exclusive access to a covered pizza terrace and outdoor oven, a private recreation room and lounge, as well as an outdoor bar and dining area. A fully equipped gym will also be featured in Stage 2.

The Montague Markets & Residences Discovery Centre is at 321 Montague Road, West End.
