Golden Age Group set to launch Sky One

Final touches are being applied to the Sky One display suite in preparation for the project's sales launch this Saturday. Gold in colour and mimicking the tower's eventual shape, the display suite is located at 545 Station Street, Box Hill.

Extensively covered by Urban Melbourne thus far, the tower is set to become a Box Hill landmark with developer Golden Age Group poised to accept reservations for what they believe will be a project that brings a heightened degree of sophistication to the suburb which is 14 kilometres due east of Melbourne's CBD.

The fourth and arguably most attractive design iteration for the site, the DKO Architecture-designed Sky One is a 36 level tower containing 434 apartments with unimpeded views to all directions. The apartments will sit atop a three-level retail, dining and health emporium, adding street level activity to a site which has been vacant for some time.

The food emporium will see a Shanghai laneways-inspired market, with a variety of restaurants on show.

Further information has been shed on Sky One's features, with an array of amenities offered within the building. Level three is dedicated toward a residents’ Sky Lounge with landscaped gardens, pool, gym, spa, sauna, family wet area, yoga studio, formal and informal lounges, private dining, private cinema/media room and an entertainment room all present.

Penthouse and sub-penthouse residents over levels 32 to 35 and a limited number of north facing apartments will also have their own exclusive level 32 Sky Club. Meeting and function spaces are included as are relaxation areas.

55 single bedroom apartments will maintain internals of between 44 to 47 square metres, with 342 dual bedroom apartment at between 66 to 82 square metres in size. More opulent three bedroom dwellings range between 92 and 127 square metres, while external areas range from a modest 7 square metres through to 88 square metre terraces.

325 basement parking spaces are included, allowing buyers who have no requirement or interest in driving to purchase a car space-free apartment accordingly.

A choice of two apartment interior schemes are available, split between the light-toned Dawn or dark-toned Dusk finishes, with an overarching emphasis on light and reflection throughout each apartment.

What they say

We recognise this is a very important site and so we are creating a dynamic, distinctive building that will add vitality, vibrancy and quality to the local community and become a central hub for Box Hill.

Jeff Xu, Managing Director, Golden Age Group

Sky One will be seen from great distances because it is surrounded by low rise buildings and sits on the peak of Box Hill’s central hill, giving it a unique vantage point. Our design was based on Feng Shui principles which ensured we optimised light and the stunning views to the north and east as well as the panorama of the CBD to the southwest.

Golden Age understands owner occupiers are looking for top quality and amenity in their living spaces and our plans have been driven by giving residents the best light, views and living space designs.

The curving façade will be finished in bronze glass and bronze metal panels with apartment living areas glazed from floor to ceiling in high performance glass or double glazing, depending on aspect.

Jesse Linardi, Director, DKO

The marriage of old and new can be a difficult process, particularly when the existing structure has intrinsic heritage value. In previous times Fitzroy's 237 Napier Street served as the home of furniture manufacturer C.F. Rojo and Sons. Taking root during 1887, Christobel Rojo oversaw operations though over time the site would become home to furniture manufacturer Thonet.

The former site of John Batman's home, Batman's Hill is entering the final stages of its redevelopment.

Infrastructure Victoria unveiled a new round of research into its larger programme of work dealing with managing transport demand. The authority contracted Arup and KPMG to produce the Melbourne Activity Based Model (MABM) and while it is new, it is considered fit for purpose in the strategic context.
