16 Northern Territory News, Saturday, December 12, 2009 Real Estate Liftout P U B : N T N E W S D A T E : 1 2 -D E C -2 0 0 9 P A G E : 1 1 6 C O L O R : C M Y K Hastings next stage is here! After three years of detailed planning, the next stage of The Avenue precinct is poised to become a spectacular reality. The opportunity to master plan a complete site as part of an integrated urban renewal project is rare and this combination of residential, commercial and retail has been designed to combine seamlessly. The completed fi rst stage, Hastings over Mindil, has been an unprecedented success with a resident mix of families, couples, retirees and business people all enjoying the comfort and pleasures of this superbly conceived, living environment. The Avenue presents those who missed out on a place in Hastings the opportunity to now become part of this vibrant community. The scope of The Avenue project providesthe platform for many desirable features and services that benefi t both private and commercial residents, as well as visitors to the precinct. It allows for expansive design and generous planting on the streetscape, an aspect that is almost exclusively missing from existing Darwin addresses. Key aspects of the master plan include an onsite 100 place child care centre, medical centre, pharmacy, convenience store, dedicated cafe and eateries. A multitude of undercover car parking options, plus 39 extra spaces built on the street, ensures that the massive car parking problems a ecting the CBD and other precincts is not an issue on The Avenue. There are bike paths linking the existing arterial bikeways at each end of the precinct, as well as over 200 secure bicycle storage spaces, along with shower and change facilities. Street lighting is set at a level much higher than standard. This, along with the tree lined streets and associated high grade landscaping will create a cool, shaded, green environment by day and a magical incandescent streetscape by night. The ideal location The Avenue has the ideal location on one of Darwins highest vantage points, boasting panoramic views of the City and Darwin Harbour across the Botanical Gardens, and clear water views of Fannie Bay to the west and north. These vistas are complemented by spectacular sunsets, awe inspiring electrical storms, festive fi reworks and the grandeur of passing super tankers, naval ships and super yachts. These give The Avenue a matchless array of images to sate the mind and gratify the senses. Add to this the considerable landscaping, the tree-lined avenue, the cafes and bistros and the picture is complete. The Avenue is a unique place where Darwin is at your feet and you have the benefi t of a visual feast that is underpinned by a tranquility and order that is not evident in the CBD. From this gallery you will observe the many faces of Darwin, always changing, always di erent. The true spirit and soul of the city is on display either from a majestic distance, or in the daily buzz of latte or espresso at our alfresco bistro.
