50 Hale Street, Townsville

Just imagine what life might be like in a brand new apartment designed around your specific needs. It would be completely accessible. It would include the very latest in assistive technology. It would be wonderfully private, yet provide overnight support in a separate onsite apartment.

Ability Apartments Townsville is just such a place. Scheduled to open in mid 2022, its 13 purpose built rental apartments have been designed for individuals between the ages of 18 to 64 who have high physical support needs and a desire to live more independently; the entire building is devoted to SDA or Specialist Disability Accommodation. Located in the heart of Townsville, these apartments are well positioned to take full advantage of transport, cinema, restaurants, shops and galleries; while boasting an inner city location, the site is nestled in a tree-lined valley, offering peaceful and private sanctuary from the shopping precinct.

Each apartment offers the highest level of accessibility with smart-home features; generous, open plan living spaces are framed by floor-to-ceiling glass that floods the home with natural light, while expansive terraces seamlessly extend the interiors to the outdoors. Each terrace has ample room for entertaining family and friends or just relaxing in solitude, while enjoying uninterrupted views of the ocean, cityscape or Castle Hill, depending on the position. Height adjustable benchtops and a score of other thoughtful design features make the kitchens a joy for meal prep, and each accessible bedroom includes a smartly finished ensuite with similar functionality; a state-of-the-art split cycle air conditioning system provides the apartment with year round comfort.

Another key feature of Ability Apartments Townsville is the onsite overnight support based out of a separate, dedicated apartment. The development consists of 1 x1 bedroom, 9 x 2 bedroom and 2 x 3 bedroom; each apartment offers secure parking and lift access. Purpose-built as SDA, these apartments will achieve platinum level certification under the NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation Guidelines.
