Sorrell, the $35.4 million Hindmarsh Development and ACT government joint venture, was unveiled yesterday.

The three building complex, built by Hindmarsh Construction, comprises 132 apartments. Construction of the development was completed earlier this month. Sorrell is part of the ACT government’s efforts to revitalise the former Burnie Housing precinct.

According to the ACT manager of Hindmarsh Development Brett Smith, the residential project exemplifies the benefits of working with the public sector.

“Sorell stands as a model of collaboration between Hindmarsh and the ACT government and the positive response to the project vindicates the joint venture’s vision to bring premium quality residential development to the precinct. We are proud to be associated with a project that has breathed new life and vitality into Lyons,” said Smith. The development sold 93 apartments off the plan immediately after its launch in March 2011.

Sorrell was designed by Antoniades Architects, with interiors by Hindmarsh. The complex also includes a 15 metre gas heated swimming pool and a furnished outdoor barbecue area.

Hindmarsh has been operating in Canberra for 30 years. Its other projects include Altitude Apartments, which was completed last year.

The company, which has completed projects with value in excess of $2 billion, recently commenced construction of the Creswell Residences in Campbell, which comprises 52 apartments. It is also planning a redevelopment of the RSL national office, which is set to include a new national office for the RSL in addition to 174 apartments.
