Avant Townhomes, (a subsidiary of Intrapac) have completed the construction of 129 Townhomes at Intrapac’s Award winning QUAY2 development in Torquay (VIC) after commencing construction in mid 2018. The final 15 dwellings are under construction with completion due early 2023.
Designed to appeal to a more diverse set of demographics, the pioneering Avant Townhomes were created to address a growing desire for an attractive, spacious alternative to the traditional, freestanding family home.
Two and three bedroom dwellings were offered in either an apartment or townhome format each architect-designed with a contemporary coastal aesthetic. Lightweight building materials and colours were selected to suit and withstand Torquay’s sun, sea-salt, and rain whilst enclosed courtyards provide secluded outdoor rooms, protected from coastal winds whilst private roof decks captured sea views.
Striving to minimise energy consumption and environmental impact, every Avant Townhome at QUAY2 has a 6-star energy rating boasting fully double-glazed windows, recycled water, and a solar power system. The Redback inverter system was installed with simple software enabling the homeowner to manage the energy collected and used by their home. This sophisticated system also monitors weather forecasts to help decide whether power should be bought, consumed in the home, or sold back to the energy supplier.
In May 2019, the Avant Townhome display suite opened at QUAY2 with four townhomes & apartments offering floorplans variations to appeal to varying family types & lifestyles – all professionally decorated. This display proved to be instrumental in assisting the Sales team to communicate the quality of the Avant build, the ergonomic design principles employed (ensuring efficient, modern, open plan living) and the sophisticated sustainability and inclusions package.
This medium density offering supports the delivery of over 530 conventional land lots at the QUAY2 46ha site which launched in mid 2016 in Torquay (VIC) and sold out 18 months ahead of schedule by January, 2021. Today, both The Quay (Intrapac’s original project) & QUAY2 continue to achieve exceptional capital growth in property values and are regarded as the most highly sought-after projects in the region.
Avant Townhomes are currently under construction at Intrapac’s Aureus project (Skennars Head, NSW) and Kinley (Lilydale, VIC).
