The Turnbull Building was acquired by Northern Land in 1999 and converted to residential apartments for sale. The central bay of the building was taken out and a full height five- storey atrium created with lift access, stairs and bridges across the void into some of the apartments.

Thirty nine apartments around the perimeter vary from one-bedroomed studios at approximately 550 ft.sq. to two-bedroomed units at approximately 1000 ft.sq. on the first to fourth floors.

The fifth and sixth floors have eight penthouses which are duplex in plan - access into the fifth floor which contains the bedrooms and bathrooms and a staircase up to the living spaces on the sixth floor. Some of the penthouses have external terraces and two include the cavernous tower spaces.
