Siskas is the final stage in the luxury Taskers apartment development in North Fremantle, expected to be completed in less than six months.

There are 55 apartments in Siskas, with prices starting from $595,000 a one bedroom apartment, $975,000 for a two bed and $1,225,000 for a three bedroom apartment.

The four bedroom apartments cost $3.1 million, while the last remaining penthouse is priced at $5.25 million. It is one of three whose residents will have access to the rooftop helipad which will allow residents to catch flying taxis and collect drone deliveries.

Urban has taken a look at why Siskas at Taskers should be on a buyers shortlist.

1. The Developer

Taskers has been developed by Gary Dempsey Developments, founded and led by the construction industry veteran and namesake Gary Dempsey.

Dempsey, a master builder by trade and one of Perth's most respected developers, founded GDD in 1988 in response to an unmet demand for high-end apartment living options in a handpicked selection of Perth’s most sought after water front locations.

Dempsey's portfolio includes award-winning developments in some of Perth’s most iconic locations, including three from the UDIA for Taskers.

2. The Architects

Siskas at Taskers has been created in collaboration between local architects Craig Steere Architects and Zuideveld Marchant Hur.

Craig Street Architects have created a number of some of Perth's most impressive homes, while ZMH have a more multi-residential background, having designed the mixed-use development Metropol and M Square in Perth.

3. The Amenities

Residents at Taskers will have 3,000 sqm of private manicured gardens, complet with a fruit orchard and herb garden for communal use, as well as gazebos and barbecue facilities for entertaining.

There's an outdoor 25-metre, heated resort-style swimming pool, as well as a fully-equipped gym and sauna.

4. The Location

Siskas at Taskers is located on McCabe Street in North Fremantle, located ideally between the Swan River and the West Coast.

There's the nearby amenities of Leighton Beach, Mosman Park Golf Course, and the Swan and Royal Freshwater Yacht Club's, as well as a number of educational facilities around from primary school to college.

5. The Apartments

Great care is taken in developments by GDD. Apartments at Siskas will have commercial glazed floor to ceiling windows, providing thermal qualities.

They windows will also provide soundproofing, as does the three-layered party wall system which achieves the highest acoustic rating for effect acoustic buffering.

Dempsey has been an advocate for residents who aren't told the full truth in regards to buying off the plan.

“I have been frustrated for a long time by the number of developers providing - misleading at best and false at worst - information regarding the size of apartments which I think reflects poorly on those in the industry who are not engaging in this sort of behaviour,” he said.

Mr Dempsey said buyers were often in the dark in relation to specifications when buying an apartment such as insulation.

“I think buyers should at least be aware that the apartment they are looking at purchasing for instance does not have insulation in the internal walls and ceilings (sadly a common practice across the industry) so they at least able to make an informed purchasing decision."
