“We’re born and bred in this region – we love Dubbo, and we’d like to stay here in our semi-retirement. We don’t want the hassle of a big garden or the security responsibilities of having a house to look after, but we want to maintain the great lifestyle this city offers us. We want something that’s secure and safe and well positioned, without having to sacrifice our space and comfort and lifestyle – something we can simply lock up and leave when we want to travel or visit friends or go away for work.
That’s why we’re building Premiere Lane and we’ll be making sure that every apartment is one we’d be happy to live in ourselves. We’ll be overseeing all the details – so when you deal with “the developers”, you’re dealing with US and we’re locals. We’ll work with you to make sure you’re as happy as we’re sure we will be as your neighbours.
We’re going to call Premiere Lane home. Why don’t you join us?”

Architect Sam Rigoli, from renowned Sydney-based architectural practice Perumal Pedavoli, is no stranger to Dubbo, and is committed to the kind of sustainable design exhibited in Premiere Lane. He believes ecological and environmental concerns should be an integral part of the design process:
“Having worked as an architect on projects in Dubbo since 2003 – including the civic administration building and the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre (DRTCC) – I know what a vibrant CBD the city has, and that Premiere Lane adds to that vibrancy with residential apartment living.
With a business level accessed via a landscaped pedestrian laneway, Premiere Lane will be the catalyst for the stronger connection between Macquarie Street and the parkland fronting the river. This sets up a pattern for development of laneways and pedestrian streets, the backbone of many successful urban and regional centres.
The design of the apartments takes advantage of the development’s location, with all the apartments achieving northern sun and taking advantage of the views to the parklands and river. Most satisfying are the key elements of urban design and sustainability initiatives introduced in this project.”
