Highgate apartments reach new heights of luxury living in the heart Canberra, forming a cornerstone of the capital city’s vision of growth.

Developed by Morris Property Group, an industry leader in property development, Highgate is an exemplary piece of modern architecture. The 18-level development features 1, 2 and 3 bedroom premium apartments where focus on quality and innovation is immediately apparent – from the exterior’s textured and glossy facade to the interior’s sublime finishes and design.

Natural light spills through from the balcony and full-length glazing that surrounds the apartment, illuminating and expanding the living space. This offers residents beautiful views of Canberra’s city skyline or Mt. Ainslie as a backdrop to be enjoyed from the sofa with a glass of wine or cup of cocoa.

The kitchen is a benchmark for modern design. Here, beauty and innovation work in perfect harmony to create the ideal environment for preparing, cooking and serving meals. The space is complete with premium Italian appliances by ILVE including a touch control ceramic cooktop, oven, microwave and dishwasher. These quality features integrate seamlessly with the timber cabinetry and stone benchtop and splashback. And with an innovatively layered breakfast bar, your morning coffee and croissant never tasted so good.

Convincing friends and family to come to your place will not be a challenge. Simply tell them about the swimming pool that sits on the level 10 podium along with the BBQ and dining area. And if that doesn’t get them, perhaps mention the private theatre that’s yours to use for entertaining. Athletic residents will also enjoy the on-site, commercial-grade gym, overlooking the pool and offering the very best fitness experience. 


On the ground level of Highgate, high quality shops and restaurants will be quite literally on your doorstep for everyday convenience and the odd indulgence. Beyond Highgate, just moments away, lie a range of enticing fine dining options including Mezzalira, Temporada, and Sage – and for a more laid back dinner, Jamie’s Italian and Akiba are delicious options.

“Highgate’s location is unparalleled,” commented Colliers International Director of Residential Project Marketing, Derek Whitcombe. “To be able to come down from your apartment and walk 30 metres into the Canberra Centre, walk across to the Casino or to one of the many restaurants and cafes on Bunda Street has been very appealing to buyers.”

Morris Property Group Development Manager, Barry Morgan, noted that, “Buyers are able to see that Highgate offers true-inner city living and are drawn to the prospect of living in the very heart of Canberra’s retail, theatre and entertainment district.”


When the weekend comes around, enjoy the quiet splendour of Glebe Park or take a walk around Lake Burley Griffin and soak up the natural environment. 

Due to strong demand from prospective buyers, construction of Highgate is already underway and completion is anticipated in 2018. With all 1 bedroom apartments now sold out, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments are available, starting from $539,900.
