The reveal of a new apartment project at 1-3 Otter Street, Collingwood, has left its developers claiming apartment hunters will find no higher calibre project in Melbourne.
Developed through a partnership with Icon Developments, 'Otter Street's' 19 boutique residences were created with a cutting-edge architectural design and globally-recognised interior brands.
As part of the development team, Cranecorp Founder and Managing Director John Crane said the Otter Street project was the missing link for home hunters seeking a larger than normal apartment of the highest quality, in one of Melbourne’s most dynamic locations.
“We wanted to create an edgy home that would allow residents to spread out in style," he said.
"The two-bedroom residences at Otter Street are approximately 25% larger than a standard two-bedroom apartment – the ceilings alone are up to four metres in height.
“We’ve purposely excluded one-bedroom apartments which really helps to set this project apart, and the average apartment size is almost 150 square metres.
“The residences at Otter Street have direct elevator access and does away with shared floor lobbies, which not only creates a sense of exclusivity – which is so important to our buyers – it also creates more space within the apartments,” Mr Crane said.
Icon Developments’ Managing Director Ashley Murdoch said the project was about "exclusivity and spaciousness" – something not often associated with apartment living.
“We’ve brought together the best minds in the business to create spacious, A-grade residences," Mr Murdoch said.
"Every element across the board, from the understated exterior to the quality craftsmanship in the finishes and appliances have been considered.
Mr Murdoch said Otter Street's design was inspired by its inner-urban location.
“Collingwood has a great, longstanding industrial and creative history, but is now establishing itself as a home to the finer things in life with cafes, galleries and restaurants.
“The design is unmistakably Collingwood with a distinctive twist, with the lower façade using a shimmering glazed brick to create a strikingly beautiful impact on the streetscape,” he said.
