Sovereign Place Apartments, East Perth
Developed across two sites on Hay Street in East Perth, less than two kilometres from the heart of the CBD, Sovereign Place is a blue-chip boutique-scale residential development comprising 48 luxury apartments and townhouses.
The development faces north across the popular Queens Gardens parkland and is a short walk from the Swan River foreshore, together with the city’s commercial and retail precincts.
The first project to be completed as part of the East Perth Redevelopment Authority’s (EPRA) Queens Riverside Precinct, Sovereign Place set a new benchmark for sustainable design in Western Australia. The development was the first apartment project in WA to feature gas-boosted solar hot water, photovoltaic cells to harness solar energy and containment of air conditioning units behind discrete louvered balcony screens.
These initiatives were market leading for an apartment project in WA, preceding the introduction of the Green Building Council ratings, and broke new ground for the industry.
Sovereign Place was a finalist in the Property Council of Australia awards for the Best Medium Density Residential Project in WA in 2010, the year the project reached completion.
