Mirvac has unveiled plans for its owner-occupier targeted development, Apartments of Tullamore, incorporating 130 one, two and three-bedroom apartments located at the entrance to the former 47-hectare Eastern Golf Course site in Doncaster, set to complement Tullamore's 800 planned homes.
Mirvac controversially acquired the coveted site on Doncaster Hill four years ago, after the golf club announced its plan to relocate to Yering.
Mirvac has sold more than 350 lots at Tullamore. General Manager of Residential Development for Mirvac Victoria Elysa Anderson said Apartments of Tullamore aimed to cater for owner occupiers with a focus on downsizers.
“Apartments of Tullamore is Mirvac’s first foray into boutique apartment development in a middle ring suburb and helps to address the need for more diversity in housing product and affordability in these areas,” Ms Anderson said.
$1.36 million is the current median price for a three-bedroom home in Doncaster, with median prices for apartments sitting at $780,000. Buyer demand in the suburb is lower than Victoria's average, according to realestate.com.au.
Mirvac has worked in collaboration with Plus Architecture, one of Melbourne’s leading boutique apartment design firms, to create the vision for the building, which set within its own green oasis, orientated to connect with the broader estate. Plus Architecture Design Director Ian Briggs said Apartments of Tullamore was designed to take elegant form and make a subtle but impressive statement, integrating with the landscape and framing the views.
“The boutique building’s sleek aesthetics and quality materials marry to create a timeless design that commands its own identity in the Doncaster area,” Mr Briggs said.
Apartments are available with a signature or prestige finish and a choice of dawn or dusk colour schemes. Both comprise contemporary classic materials with distinctive finishes and offer the opportunity to customise.
The development display suite will open in April.
