Boutique developers Norup + Wilson have been making a name for themselves across Perth for a number of years, having now amassed a portfolio that spans far and wide, with over half a billion dollars on the books. 

Headed by Director’s John Norup and Dave Wilson, the group focuses on the owner-occupier,  paying particular attention to the standard and range of first-class amenities on offer within their multi-level communities. 

It’s been no different for the group’s imposing 21-storey community on the high-point of the coveted Mount Pleasant and Applecross peninsula - having attracted the interest of buyers not only for its enviable location. 

“In order for a community to function efficiently and happily, an enormous amount of careful thought and effort needs to be invested in the planning, design and built-form solutions to which they lead,” said Wilson. 

“From the outset of this ambitiously innovative residential development, my focus has been on ensuring that all the community facilities integrate seamlessly with the private living areas. In this way, resident privacy and security are maximised as elegantly as are the shared benefits of the resort-quality these facilities provide.”

“Our goal is to set an unrivalled benchmark in apartment living.”

The action begins across the ground floor, transitioning into a destination entertainment piazza featuring an eclectic assortment of cuisines and experiences, with a number of restaurants already operating on the doorstep of The Precinct, and a handful still to come.

More often than not, developments focus their private amenity offering around the pool. The Precinct has instead incorporated the facilities into distinct zones throughout, allowing residents to fully enjoy each space. 

Reminiscent of the finest resorts across the world, The Precinct is home to an indoor and outdoor gym, a running track, a swimming pool, Bocci pit, cabana daybeds, Teppanyaki barbecues, a residents lounge and library, a wine room and a kid’s play room. 

For the exclusive use of Sky Residents from levels 17 to 21, a Sky Lounge is also part of The Precinct, encompassing some of the best views on the west coast. 

“The only difference between this peaceful escape from the everyday and the kind of relaxing, five-star resort you’d find in some distant tropical paradise, is that this one is yours. Your own piece of paradise,” Wilson said. 

The Precinct stands as the most prominent landmark in the Canning Bridge Precinct, commanding views of every facet of the city, from Kings Park and the CBD, to the converging Swan and Canning Rivers and the distant escarpment to the east. 

Norup + Wilson chose the landmark site to maximise the Melville Council’s $235 million redevelopment vision for the precinct. Over the next ten years the Canning Bridge area is expected to be transformed with an expanded train station, river ferry and revitalised town centre on par with what was witnessed at Subiaco and East Perth
