For Michelle Dziego and David Fielding, it was this sense of sanctuary and retreat that drew them in, along with the quality of amenity and the village-style living on offer.
The couple has purchased a level 10, two-bedroom apartment, from which they will enjoy incredible views of the Adelaide Hills. However, it was the sense of their lives being completely and perfectly catered to that really cemented the idea to call Eighty Eight O’Connell home.
“We have been looking at other properties over the past few years we could invest in, but we’ve always liked the idea of being near the city but not being right in the city,” Michelle said.
“With all the cafés and restaurants along the promenade and with all the facilities in one complex, our lifestyle will be perfectly catered to, both now and in the future.”
“It’s really going to be like a retreat for us where we can sit back and relax with no pressures.”
As keen travellers, the couple are excited about the ease of being able to walk out the door at a moment’s notice – with little to organise and safe in the knowledge their apartment will be exactly as they left it on return.
Looking to the future is another benefit that has driven the couple’s decision to purchase an apartment.
“Having everything right underneath us as we get older will make life so much more convenient,” Michelle said.
“We won’t need to go anywhere else, everything that we will need will be in one central location which is reassuring. We know once we move in this will be our home for life.”
Eighty Eight O’Connell currently has the largest two bedroom apartments on offer in Adelaide, providing a sense of space which Director of Sales Georgie Taarnby said complements the sense of easy living.
“Many of our purchasers are attracted by the immediate sense of an effortless lifestyle that comes with an Eighty Eight O’Connell home,” she said.
“They are then surprised by the generously spacious apartments which underline the quality and careful thought that has gone into each and every element of the design.
Wellbeing and hospitality have been infused into every aspect of what’s on offer here and that’s what makes it such a compelling proposition – people aren’t just buying a home, they’re buying a highly desirable lifestyle.Georgie Taarnby, Eighty Eight O’Connell
That lifestyle includes an array of amenities beyond the confines of the apartments themselves, including a New York inspired skydeck, a fresh produce market from the iconic institution that is Mercato, a wine bar and artisan coffee, integrated wellness studios, sauna, swimming pools and more.
“Day-to-day living will be nothing short of incredible,” Georgie said.
“Imagine having access to a private outdoor terrace with a 10-metre heated swimming pool and poolside food and beverage service – it’s truly resort style living but for the everyday.
“When you consider that North Adelaide has long been a highly sought-after suburb and then you add the incredible amenity and lifestyle on offer at Eighty Eight O’Connell, it’s not surprising purchasers such as Michelle and David are choosing to call it home.”
Nestled within the North Adelaide skyline, Eighty Eight O’Connell is made up of three distinctive buildings which are currently taking shape. To the north is the Tynte tower; in the middle is the Centenary tower; and to the south is the Archer tower. Each of the buildings boast generously sized apartments and all of them provide access to the ultimate in amenity. Dayto- day living has never looked so good with bespoke culinary experiences, sophisticated retail, a local produce market and embedded health and wellbeing services.
Start the day with a walk through the parklands or an energising session in the state-of-the-art gym. Follow it with artisan coffee from Mercato before heading out to enjoy the day. Dinner is then easily taken care of with the choice of dinner in the restaurant or fresh local market produce and quality pre-prepared meals that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your apartment.
