The national construction firm Descon has been appointed to build Tallis Property Group's $180 million South Brisbane apartment development, AKIN.

Construction will soon kick off on the 30-storey tower at 35 Merivale Street, with Descon working to the future forward design plans from architecture firm DBI, who has installed some of the most advanced technologies on the market, from number plate and face recognition, to pin code apartment access and home automation.

There will be 190 apartments across the building, with 80 per cent of the apartments on the low and mid-rise levels sold out. The upper floor sky homes will be launched to the market in January 2022.

Two of the levels in AKIN are reserved for residential amenity, which will include a health and wellness centre with heated pool, spa, gym, yoga studio, and steam and sauna rooms, and a business centre with hot desks, lounge and meeting rooms.

The rooftop features private dining rooms and outdoor barbecue and dining spaces, commercial kitchen, wine cellar and cinema.

Work is expected to take around two years, with completion expected for early 2024.

Tallis Group CEO, Angus Gao, said so far demand has been from owner-occupiers.

“The majority of purchasers at AKIN are owner-occupiers which speaks volumes about its location and design credentials, and the impressive integration of complementary lifestyle and security technologies throughout the building,” Gao said.

“The momentum we’ve achieved from the formal launch in May, through to construction commencing in November, is remarkable and we look forward to carrying this into the New Year when we release the sky home collection.”

MOTIV Group CEO, Carly Cottam, who is marketing the apartments, said the ability for purchasers to amalgamate and customise their apartments has been fundamental to the sales success of the project.

“It is rare for an inner-city building to have such a high percentage of owner-occupiers; however this is a testament to the vision for AKIN and the relationship Tallis Property Group has with its buyers,” Cottam said.

“The ability for purchasers to customise their apartments has provided greater diversity in the building, with a selection of five and six-bedroom apartments complementing the existing mix of two, three and four-bedroom apartments and sub penthouses.

“It’s the embodiment of intuitive, future-focused home design.”

There's a number of the two-bedroom apartments remaining, starting from $696,900.
