‘It took just four hours for 90 yet-to-be-built apartments to sell in Bondi Junction as the off-the-plan unit market heats up before spring, writes Kirsten Craze.

When the display suite doors opened at 8am sharp for the Capitol launch earlier this month, a crowd of eager buyers had already gathered. By 8.20am, 38 apartments had already sold and four hours later a total of 90 had been snapped up out of 93 on offer.

“It was an amazing result, driven by the building design, apartment layouts, finishes, location, current market and pricing structure. People will be proud to live in Capitol,” Capitol Legacy Property project director Mark Maryska said.

The 20-storey Bondi Junction apartment block will be a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units designed by architects Dickson Rothschild, the designer behind the Westifield CBD revamp and interior designer BKH, the creative mind behind the Kirketon boutique Hotel and China Doll restaurant.

Capitol will be about 100m from the Junction’s Westfield Shopping Cenyre and close to the handy transport hub. Studios in Capitol were priced from $495,000 for a 40sqm unit and climbed to $1.85 million for a three-bedroom apartment. There are two penthouses still on offer from $3.75 million. Capitol is due from completion in mid-2015.’
