MIRVAC FORGE APARTMENTS SOCIAL EXPERIMENT
MELBOURNE'S FIRST APARTMENT TRIAL
The AAA and Mirvac partnered in September last year to provide an opportunity for three sets of people to trial apartment living at Forge apartments in Docklands free of charge.
AAA hosted a pop up apartment in South Bank where 300 people registered.
THE SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS
The three successful candidates included Brad and Sharon Dart and their 18 year old daughter Amy.
Sarah, her husband Mark and parents Jeremy and Carolyn (pictured).
And finally the Baskar family.
FAMILY ENDORSES APARTMENT LIVING
When Omrita Baskar saw the opportunity to try Mirvac’s Forge apartment lifestyle for a month for free – she knew this was the opportunity she had been waiting for.
Relocating from Canberra two years prior, the family had purchased a traditional home in Wallan in order to ensure a backyard for their two toddlers, but with the 1.5 hour commute for her husband each way, Omrita recognised this was far from ideal.
But could they transition to an apartment as an alternative? And especially just a two bedroom apartment?
A month on and the family now have a totally new perspective on CBD apartment living!
