Lumi is located on the western edge of the Gungahlin town centre, within walking distance of many facilities and amenities. The Marketplace, notably featuring both a Kmart and a Woolworths is only 350m away, with Bunnings also only 200m away. There is also a Family Health Centre and childcare facilities close by, as well as the Gungahlin Leasure Centre and Library. Lumi is also positioned within walking distance of the Yerrabi Pond District Park and Waterfall Precinct. This new apartment development is located about 20 minutes north of the Canberra CBD and about 25 minutes from Parliament House. The University of Canberra is just under 15-minutes drive away.
The future light rail station that will connect Gungalin with the Canberra CBD and Parliamentary Triangle is located just 600m walk away from The Lumi Collection, improving the convenience of this location even further.
The basement car park features wider-than-average parking spaces and plenty of storage space, with all apartments allocated at least one space (two and three-bedroom apartments have two, and the penthouses have three). Lumi has also taken extra security precautions to put residents’ minds at ease, with security cameras in common areas and mailboxes can be accessed from inside the building.
Dramatic windows line each apartment proving great views of the surroundings while high-performance glazing minimizes noise and filters the sunlight. This specialised glazing also helps to reduce the heating and cooling requirements by over 40% in comparison to standard double glazing, which is great news for your electricity bill. Lumi also features Bulkhead lighting and recessed Pelmets throughout the apartments. Along with natural cross-ventilation and plenty of natural light, these new Canberra apartments offer ducted air conditioning throughout. Standard apartments have 2.7m ceilings in the living areas, while the penthouses have 3m ceilings in both the bedrooms and the living areas . The buildings feature mechanical heat recovery units, which minimise the risks of condensation from the air conditioning, preventing the accumulation of allergens and mold.
The kitchens feature an externally ducted range hood, stone benchtop and Bosch appliances. Underfoot, residents at Lumi apartments will find high-quality timber flooring.
The penthouses offers 200m² of internal living space and a 63m² balcony, while the sub-penthouses have 156m² internally and a 40m² balcony.
Across the two different buildings at Lumi, there are 24 different floor plans available for buyers to select between and have all been carefully designed. Each floor plan is orientated to maximise outlook and privacy as well as functionality. All floor plans are flexible, providing living spaces that can be used for a multitude of purposes. The main bedrooms are all very generously sized, and all will be able to accommodate a king bed without feeling squishy.
The Lumi Collection is a project by Canberra-based developers KDN group, who are focused on design excellence and sustainability in both their residential and commercial projects. This development is brought to market by LJ Hooker Project Marketing Canberra.
