FAQs about The Avenue A safe & friendly precinct A place where everybody feels at home is the result of expert and experienced precinct management. The patented Signature system from Controlability, which has been so e ective at Hastings Over Mindil, will be an important part of the communications, services and security for both the residential and commercial areas of the development. When you live on The Avenue you experience a real sense of community and, while it has been consciously planned, it has its own organic growth. We believe this is directly attributable to the spirit and participation of the people who already live in Stage One of the precinct. People make communities and we specialise in creating environments that nurture this sense of belonging. Living on The Avenue has its own special synergy, where neighbours become friends and children enjoy freedom of play and friendships that will long be fondly remembered. Living and working sustainably is a major focus of The Avenues designers. It was important to create an environment where people and businesses can function super e! ciently, thanks to smart energy & cost saving design. Energy e! ciency is a key platform for the entire precinct and a 6 Star Green Rating is targeted. Major initiatives include the installation of a centralised chilled water system that benefi ts from the economies of scale and diversity of both the commercial and residential components of the building. Whilst the capital cost is higher, this strategy alone will save up to 35% of energy used on the site. Co-generation systems will be implemented, whereby heat produced by the chillers will be ingeniously used to preheat hot water. Another crucial element is the roof of the commercial section which is three times thicker than standard, providing exceptional water, sound and heat barriers. This e ectively becomes an esky lid over the building dramatically reducing air conditioning costs. Whilst many developments dont even provide shading to windows and locate air conditioners on verandahs, The Avenue gets the basics right, as well as providing a range of new and innovative solutions. Everything is green & cool on The Avenue AVE 4/DPS.12.12 ...where Darwin is at your feet. 1. WHAT IS THE AVENUE? The Avenue is the next stage of Hastings Over Mindil and is the extension of a fully master planned, mixed use precinct.

Osborne Family Holdings who created The Hastings concept and brought it to fruition as the benchmark for quality, resort style living in Darwin. Precinct management is also the responsibility of OFH and their successful hands-on formula will be extended to The Avenue. 3. IS IT AFFORDABLE TO BUY?

No, the reality of Hastings Over Mindil shows that our body corporate fees are no more than lesser developments in Darwin, where there are nowhere near the range of amenities and services.
