Massive Apartment Project Could Transform Reservoir


Plans have been unveiled for a proposed new apartment development atop Reservoir's Summerhill Village in Melbourne's northern suburbs.

Project manager and development manager Ouson Group has lodged a planning application with the Darebin City Council for a 326-apartment development called Reservoir Reflection at 830 Plenty Road. A key design element would be a reflective purple band which would wrap around the building.

The proposal for Reservoir Reflection is one of the largest that has been lodged for Melbourne's outer suburbs.

Designed by Architeria Architects, the proposed development would comprise of four apartment buildings of up to 12 levels. There would be 73 one bedroom apartments, 15 one bedroom plus study apartments, 194 two bedroom apartments, 24 two bedroom plus study apartments and 20 three bedroom apartments.

The building would also include 391 basement car park spaces and 106 bicycle spaces with retail and recreational facilities on the ground level. Communal areas would include a swimming pool, barbecue and play areas.

Architeria Architects' Principal Architect Mel Gawl explained the inspiration for the building to Urban Melbourne: "Reservoir Reflection is aiming to introduce signature architecture to the rapidly growing and changing suburb of Reservoir in Melbourne.  A rhapsody of architectural elements and materials create an exciting mix of twisted cubes, glass curtain walls, metal cladding and coloured concrete."The 10,194sqm site currently has a number of low-rise buildings onsite which would be removed.
