BancNote October 2017

Another month has flown by and the Banc site is looking more and more like a construction site each day.
We are also really looking forward to our new ‘display suite’ which will be located in Kangaroo Point as part of Place Kangaroo Point’s new offices. For us it makes sense to locate the display suite here, not only to compliment the new office space, but it gives our buyers 7 day access to view the design and finishes of the Banc apartments. Ordinarily, display suites are not operated full time which can sometimes limit access for buyers, so we see this as a positive move forward. We are hoping to be in by mid December but we will keep you posted of progress.
