Homeownership made easier

Scheduled for completion in June 2024, 15 Thompson Street unveils 198 impeccably designed residences. This development is distinguished not only by its aesthetic and contemporary appeal but also by its inclusive vision, which aims to make homeownership attainable for a broader segment of Australians.

Assemble’s flexible purchase pathway allows future residents the unique opportunity to move in and familiarise themselves with their homes, enabling them to decide to buy when they’re ready.

Here, rest assured that rent prices will not get away from you while you save. Rent is set for up to five years with fixed annual increases set at three per cent. If you opt to buy, you can purchase at any stage during the five-year rental period with a fixed price agreed upfront. This price will increase by three per cent per year from the project’s completion, providing you with the time, space, flexibility, and certainty you need to make your purchasing decision.
