About Our Precinct
Spirit on The Avenue is a multi-award winning, master-planned residential and commercial development. Since its conception in 2009, the building was completed in June 2014 and opened by then Chief Minister, the hon. Adam Giles.
The building was developed by NT developers Kerry & Dean Osborne, as the second stage of their incredibly successful development Hastings Over Mindil, which is also located on Salonika Street. Hastings was one of Darwin's first resort style precincts, renowned for it's clever design and resort-style amenities that promote our unique tropical lifestyle.
Our ideal location is only 2km from the Darwin CBD and walking distance from schools, casino, Mindil beach, sailing and ski clubs and Botanical gardens. The Avenue has all the convenience of city living without the constant bustle.
The Avenue is located on the second highest point of the Darwin peninsular makes for stunning panoramic views of the City, harbour and surrounding suburbs. With views already apparent from the level two commercial balconies, residents and tenants alike are spoiled by Darwin's spectacular sunsets, dramatic Wet Season electrical storms, festive Mindil fireworks displays as well as the grandeur of passing super tankers in the harbour.
Our extensive, award-winning streetscape is a spectacular site that creates a lush and green Precinct all year round for residents, tenants and guests alike to enjoy. Our feature gardens, including our two Atlantis grow walls featured on the South Eastern side of the building and on the back of our custom-built restaurant/cafe site create a unique appearance for the building and our topiary Drover's Run by Unique Topiary have are finally established after 5 Wet Seasons. The Drover's Run theme is a nod to the sites history with Vesteys Meatworks and includes two drovers on horses (one reared and one riding), a stud bull, 4 full sized cows and calf.
With over 40 species of native plants (including indigenous medicinal gardens) and more than 80 native Allosyncarpia Ternata gumtrees having been planted to create 'The Avenue effect', our streetscape will only get more stunning and provide more shade for our street as the Development progresses.
Our Commercial Precinct boasts some of Darwin's most professional and successful Northern Territory-made and owned businesses. With award-winning practitioners in our Health Precinct, one of the largest childcare centres in the Southern hemisphere, Darwin's most visually stunning cafe/restaurant building and a plethora of high quality services from a range of business types, our residential tenants and precinct guests are well catered to.
The Avenue Commercial precinct also boasts one of the most iconic territorian event spaces, The Atrium on The Avenue. The space, available for all commercial tenants, but also for hire by the NT population, boasts two stories of NT decorated space, including a 7m gum tree installation and billabond themed fixtures and fittings.
