A new place to live & a new way to rent in
First Street

Opening September 2024, we’ll launch Acer, our first residential building within Square Gardens. Welcoming a community seeking the vibrancy and convenience of city life… surrounded by extensive landscape gardens and a choice of fantastic shared spaces.

A choice of living space…

This is co-living where you’re in control. Choose an ensuite room within a shared apartment, a studio or your own apartment. It removes all the usual headaches of renting.
