Frasers Centrepoint creates new brand to develop dual-key homes


Developer Frasers Centrepoint has created a new brand for its collection of dual-key units, on the back of strong demand.

These homes have several uses, such as allowing grandparents to live in the same dwelling as the rest of the family but with a separate key and entrance.

Called Trio by Frasers, the brand, launched on Tuesday, will focus on developing and marketing the dual-key concept. They have been on offer since 2009, when it launched Caspian at Lakeside and 8@Woodleigh.

Several recent launches, such as River Isles and executive condo (EC) 1 Canberra, also boast the units. Analysts say they can cost about 5 per cent more than ordinary units. Typically, studio apartments are attached to one, two, three, four or five-bedders.
