Traders In Purple has officially opened its Kings Quarter Sales Display at Kingston Park in Kingston. The Sales Display will be used to familiarise potential purchasers with the $300m master planned community development. Stage One of Kings Quarter, known as Birch Row, is scheduled to commence construction in 2021; with the Kings Quarter Sales Display showcasing the design, finishes, and quality that purchasers can expect in the final product.
Traders In Purple’s Development Director for Tasmania, Ms Jennifer Cooper, said that Stage One of the Kings Quarter project at Kingston Park is underway in partnership with Kingborough Council; and that it represents the beginning of the revitalisation of the Kingston Park precinct into an exciting new community for everyone.
“Birch Row at Kings Quarter comprises the construction of 80 new, free-standing homes and townhouses, adjacent to Kingborough Council’s award-winning Community Hub and new park and playground. The Kings Quarter project is designed to attract residents of all ages to live in Kingston, close to great shopping centres, local services, and the beach, while remaining within commuting distance to Hobart,” Ms Cooper said.
“Birch Row, the initial sales release at Kings Quarter, has created significant interest from local residents, with the project popular with downsizers and families alike. There has also been a strong level of enquiry from prospective interstate purchasers. Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, with purchasers impressed with the design and quality that the project offers, as demonstrated at the Kings Quarter Sales Display.
“Traders In Purple’s Kings Quarter project represents an investment of around $300m, which will stimulate the Tasmanian economy, bringing jobs, small business opportunities, and ancillary services over a 10-year period. The company has a high level of confidence in the Tasmanian economy. Based on Commsec’s July 2020 State & Territory Economic Performance Report that rates Tasmania as Australia’s best performing economy, our confidence is well-placed,” Ms Cooper said.
The Mayor of Kingborough, Cr Dean Winter, said that Traders In Purple’s investment in the Kingborough municipality and the development of Kingston Park is precisely the type of inward investment regional Tasmania needs to continue to grow and maintain Tasmania’s place as Australia’s best performing economy.
“To have such a successful and well-credentialed developer invest in our region gives us confidence for the future of central Kingston,” Mayor Winter said.
“Our investment in infrastructure and community spaces will balance the residential and commercial developments, which will transform Kingston into being a place to work, shop, and play,” he added.
Traders In Purple and the Kingborough Council both believe that the economic stimulus to Kingston and the Kingborough region cannot be overestimated. Long-term projects, such as the Kings Quarter revitalisation, will bring a high number of meaningful jobs to the region. They believe the project will also give employers confidence to offer traineeships, and provide job security to contractors, including electricians, plumbers, and associated trades; as well as acting as a catalyst for further investment in the area.
