Bondi Junction RSL Club build kicks off just as project completely sells out

With a focus on form and function, each home has been designed to celebrate both the city and the sea, with each apartment following an open-plan design, adjoining onto spacious balconies offering views across Bondi and Botany Bay.

The long-awaited rejuvenation of the Club Bondi Junction RSL is officially underway following a formal ground-breaking, signalling the start of construction on the back of a successful project sell out.

The 80-apartment development by Australian development business, Capital Corporation, was launched in October 2020, selling 30 per cent of apartments in the first week on the market, with the final apartment sold just prior to the start of the construction phase. 

The apartments have been designed by Group GSA, while the interiors are by renowned architects, Koichi Takada.

With a focus on form and function, each home has been designed to celebrate both the city and the sea, with each apartment following an open-plan design, adjoining onto spacious balconies offering views across Bondi and Botany Bay.

Capital Corporation Director, Jim Hunter said the strong sales in 2021 triggered the early construction start, with the flow of buyers following on from there.

“Our last sale recently finalised, and the construction program has officially begun, signifying to the community that the project is full steam ahead,” he said.

“This is such an exciting project that provides both a longstanding future for the Club, modern living facilities and terrific benefits for the community,” Hunter added.

Bond is set to revitalise the precinct streets into a buzzing community hub, with the reinvention and modernisation of Club Bondi Junction RSL also planned, which will sit beneath the apartments.

Part of the area’s regeneration includes opening the street frontage on the corner of Gray Street and Bronte Road into a welcoming and dynamic location, with an array of cafes and dining options.

Capital Corporation worked closely with Group GSA, to renew and restore aspects of the Club’s heritage, while also creating a contemporary facade.

Bondi Junction RSL Club President, Bill Harrigan said they’re looking forward to the transformation, attracting all members of the community.

“I am excited about the creation of a different type of club, one that attracts not only veterans and their families but all of the community.”

With the inclusion of the function spaces and the new restaurant, we expect the club to be a central spot for social connection,” Harrigan said.  

The 10-level residential project will be crowned by a landscaped rooftop area, created by Urbis, complete with an outdoor cinema, barbecue areas and a yoga lawn. 

National Director at Colliers Residential, Blake Schulze, said the project had attracted buyers from the Eastern Suburbs, many of whom purchased multiple apartments, with one as their main residence and the second as either an investment or for another family member or adult child.

“We experienced significant demand for Bond from local families and returning Australian expats,” he said.

“This demand resulted in strong sales, even during our most significant lockdown period of 2021.”

After partnering on two successful projects, Veridian in Kogarah and Esplanade in Norwest, Capital Corporation appointed Westbourne Constructions as the builder in December 2021 with construction now officially underway.
