In both Penang and Kuala Lumpur, guests were given insights into the Melbourne market by Nicholas Keong who heads Knight Frank Singapore’s private office, with insights of; the city’s scarcity of upcoming new apartments due to the pandemic-enforced lack of new launches and a compelling look at its present-day investment outlook. Battersby then offered a walkthrough of Flagstaff Hill (1-bedroom configurations start at AUD481,000), from its apartment layouts and many design touches, to the luxurious amenities such as a sun terrace, winter gardens and thoughtful planning which makes it easy for residents and tenants to enjoy a city lifestyle at its location by the fringe of Melbourne’s central business district.
