In the early 2000’s, it began as a design for a commercial building on a busy Cheltenham corner. Now, The Village illustrates the changing face of Melbourne’s development and construction industry over the last 15 to 20 years. Commercial projects have morphed into residential projects as Melbourne’s popularity and population continues to grow. We’re seeing an increased amount of larger apartment complexes being built in suburban commercial hubs as attitudes towards apartment living, workplace and lifestyle have continued to evolve.

The Village combines urban design with Bayside influences into the mixture of residential and commercial spaces. After various iterations, settlement on the 170 apartments is complete. Many residents are now calling The Village their home, in conjunction with commercial tenancies being leased and currently undergoing final fit out to activate the prominent commercial corner.

With city and bay views, and elevated from the busy Nepean Highway corner, residents are provided with high level of security and privacy. Podium level communal space, located centrally and secluded from the commercial surrounds offers the residents an opportunity to get away from the hectic inner suburban precinct whilst remaining connected.

The stylish 1 or 2 bedroom apartments have been designed to maximise natural daylight, with either a private balcony or terrace fitted with high performance glazing to minimize noise and provide security to the residents. Versatile interior colour choices for the kitchen and bathroom, which are available in light and dark colour schemes provide residents with the freedom to match and tailor key features within their new home to their vision.

We are excited to include The Village in our portfolio of projects highlighting how apartments and mixed use developments can be successful. The Village showcases how a project can positively respond to the needs of increased housing demands and work opportunities in existing and developed areas in a constructive and contributing manner to the existing suburban amenity and fabric.
