Apartments in the Archdiocese’s Cathedral precinct under construction at Manuka will go on sale late this month.
By May next year, the first residents will begin moving into the Marian Apartments, archdiocesan financial administrator Helen Delahunty said.
She confirmed there had already been a lot of community interest in the apartments.
“The Marian Apartments will be a wonderful addition to the community,” she said.
“The 44 architect-designed apartments of various sizes are designed for ease of living and will have a high standard of finishes to suit the surroundings.”
The units will be secure with basement parking and storage.
Ms Delahunty said the Archdiocese and Hindmarsh Construction were working tirelessly to finalise a project “which will sustainably achieve our working needs for the foreseeable future. The project is currently ahead of time and within budget.”
The office building in the Cathedral precinct development will bring together archdiocesan staff from various localities and agencies to work together with the Archbishop.
“The building is set to become the home of the Archdiocese, and will sit beside the spiritual home of the Archdiocese, the Cathedral,” Ms Delahunty said.
“The building will have access from Franklin St and Canberra Ave and will allow foot traffic all around the Cathedral for the first time since it was opened in 1939.”
