Australia offers some of the world's most glamourous pools, a number of which can be found in Canberra.

Despite the generally colder weather, that doesn't stop the elaborate and intricate construction of open-air pools across a number of new, planned and under construction developments.

The leading new apartment developer in Canberra is the Geocon Group with 14 different projects, across multiple stages of readiness and completion listed on Urban.

1. The Establishment

Inspired by Chicago’s industrial warehouse scene, The Establishment offers one, two, three-bedroom and loft apartments “designed for luxury and forged in style,” the marketing reads. Homes begin at just $313,000 for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in the complex.

The residence offers private amenities, including a rooftop infinity-edge lap pool (pictured in the title) with outdoor spa and an exclusive outdoor strength and agility gym. It is located just five minutes from Yerrabi Pond and numerous parklands and walking tracks.

The project offers two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartments from $452,900. 

It is one of many ACT offerings from Geocon Group and is set for completion in 2021.

2. Aspen Village

The residence offers price amenities including an outdoor rooftop entertaining area, including BBQs, dining facilities and fire pits as well as a heated infinity-edge pool.

Prices in the Geocon development start from $330,000 for one-bedroom apartments, $440,900 for two-bedroom units and three-bedroom apartments start from $713,900.

3. Grand Central Towers

Grand Central Towers comprising two 16-storey and 25-storey buildings is comprised of 448 residences. Around the time of it's announcement in 2018, the Woden development broke the ACT sales record, according to joint developers Geocon and Zapata.

Buyers snapped up more than $100 million worth of property at a special sales event, with the development’s proximity to the Stage 2 of the light rail line being a key factor in the property’s appeal. A rooftop infinity pool also helped.

“Selling 250 units, including a penthouse and 100 per cent of the commercial spaces is a phenomenal outcome not just for us, but for the whole of Woden," Geocon Managing Director Nick Georgalis said.

One-bedroom apartments start at 260,900, while two-bedroom units are available from $541,900. A Penthouse sold for $1.5 million. It is also a Geocon Group offering.

4. Highgate

Another development that is home to a luxury pool is the new waterfront Republic precinct in Belconnen, High Society, Canberra’s tallest towers.

The twin towers rise above Lake Ginninderra with uninterrupted views of nature. Designed by Fender Katsalidis, the towers will comprise 541 one, two and three-bedroom residences across two 27 level towers and a 135 suite Abode Hotel.

The panoramic floor to ceiling windows let sunlight flood into all bedrooms and living spaces with higher ceilings than the average apartment development.
