The penthouses would cost about $1 million each.

Construction is planned to start as soon as possible, subject to building approval.

This will provide a fantastic addition to the activity in Mawson Lakes, with 150 jobs would be created during construction and many more with the take up of the commercial space. The company’s managing director, Frank Barbaro  said “the project, known as Emperor Living, was designed to feel like a five-star hotel. You’ll have clear views of the hills and coast, cafes and restaurants to visit down stairs and access to parks and public transport.”

Salisbury Mayor Gillian Aldridge said the plans looked exciting and, if approved, would give a boost to the northern suburbs.

“It will create jobs, be classy and enhance an already great area in Mawson Lakes,” Ms Aldridge said.

“I’m pretty excited by it, the area has nothing like it at the present time.”
