Looking for downsizing baby boomers

A five-storey apartment complex at 150 Broadway in Crawley is the latest western suburbs development chasing the downsizing baby boomer market.

More than 40 percent of the one and two-bedroom apart-ments have already been sold ahead of construction by Pindan, which is due to start soon.

Subiaco designer Jimmy Thompson, from MJA Studio, knew the site intimately, with his grandparents having lived in the apartment complex that used to stand on the same land.

He said he channelled childhood memories of days spent exploring Crawley into the design of the riverside suburb’s apartment development, Aviva on Broadway.

I’ve been able to embed my memories and knowledge of the area into the design — for example, positioning generous-sized balconies on the western side to make the most of the natural environment and maintaining most of the homes as “corner” apartments with more frontage and light coming in from both sides, like the original Art Deco building had

Pindan Realty project sales manager Matthew Smith said a mix of local and international buyers were driving demand at Aviva.

The remaining Aviva apartments start from $460,000 for one bedroom and $750,000 for two bedrooms.
