Fabric Apartments, by The Semilan Group, offers 16 different one and two bedroom apartments across 4 floors, and a rooftop entertainment area.
An open plan living area opens out onto the street facing balcony, both of which are fully tiled. The small apartments at 71 m² are not large 2 bedroom apartments, however, the design will make it seem larger. A compromise for the size is the kitchen design, which doesn’t feature the traditional bench for preparation and sitting at.
The second floorplan type is larger and features a more traditional kitchen if that is what you prefer. We would recommend inspecting the completed units to determine which style you prefer as there are definitely pluses and minuses for both approaches.
The larger 2 bedroom apartments at 86 m² internally are a good size and probably reflect good value at this price point.
The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe leading to an ensuite. There is easy access to the second bathroom via the second bedroom.
