Project Update

November 8, 2018

Introducing a newly completed multi-residential project… The Sandy Bay Road Apartments.

This recently completed apartment complex is perfectly located in an established garden setting on Sandy Bay Road in Battery Point.

The four level complex is built into the hillside, with a cantilevered design cleverly positioning the 20 residential apartments over the screened car park, resulting in a great example of a sympathetic infill development close to the centre of Hobart.
