Malaysian property developer UEM Sunrise has officially launched its $320 million Conservatory development in Melbourne, Australia.
Located on Mackenzie Street, Conservatory has already made a strong sales debut with more than 65 per cent of apartments sold through an exclusive preview campaign in selected cities around the world beginning late August 2015. The official release date coincides with the opening of the 280 sqm onsite display suite, which features a full two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment unit and a garden compound of about 1,500 sqm that could host up to 100 guests.
“We are extremely pleased to have received such a high level of interest from local and international buyers in both the owner-occupier and investor markets looking to benefit from luxury-living and first-class amenities in the World’s Most Liveable City,” said UEM Sunrise CEO and Managing Director Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib.
Designed by Professor Philip Cox AO of Cox Architecture, Conservatory will deliver contemporary garden living in the sky with 446 apartments of one, two and three-bedroom units and penthouses in a 42-storey majestic tower.
Professor Cox in revealing his inspiration for Conservatory said, “Since Victorian times, elegant glasshouse buildings have housed and nurtured tender and exotic plants. Often a favoured retreat or place of entertainment, these ornate yet functional spaces nurture and enhance a sense of wellbeing. This landmark tower will offer a sanctuary for its occupants – a place to grow, relax and share special moments. The unique design builds on an art nouveau concept – a controlled and tempered habitat propagating a new environment for living within a graceful, sculptural façade that captures views, controls light and allows fresh air. Conservatory embraces the true spirit of garden living in the city,” he said.
Mr. Anwar Syahrin added that Conservatory would have expansive communal recreation and entertaining areas layered in three levels as the tower ascends. Residents will enjoy The Victorian Terrace, The Royal Banquet and The Carlton Skydeck with breathtaking views over the Carlton Garden and city skyline as the backdrop.
Construction of Conservatory is expected to commence in the first half of 2016. One-bedroom apartments start from AUD$447,000. The Conservatory display suite will be available for viewing via appointment through Colliers International from 23 October 2015 onwards.
