A Sense of Place and Stylish Grace Elland Avenue to Alight in Box Hill

Buzzing with the energy of a mini metropolis, Box Hill, has undergone significant transformation in recent years. Not only a destination for delicious dim sum, Box Hill and is now one of Melbourneʼs most promising precincts for investment and most sought after suburbs for owner occupiers. It is here that premium Melbourne developer Chapter Group are building their latest residential project, Elland Avenue.

Channeling the work of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian, an exponent of the de Stijl movement (de Stijl translates as ʻthe styleʼ) – Elland Avenue, is indeed all about style. An interpretation David Lee from award-winning architecture and design practice K2LD, has encapsulated perfectly for the 21st century with this benchmark $60 million dollar residential development.

Elland Avenueʼs arresting grid façade is a homage to early 20th century de Stijl expressed in the ʻnon coloursʼ with vertical and horizontal lines that will ensure Elland Avenue becomes a beacon of style in Box Hill. Located at 2 Elland Avenue, the building will comprise 100 apartments over eight levels, and will offer a selection of one and two-bedroom dwellings and two expansive penthouses.

Interiors are generous, driven by a desire to create apartments that are imminently liveable and humanely decent.

David Lee, Director of K2LD, says:
“Our values are to create apartments that are functional and a pleasure to live in. All spaces have been considered, and there is a place for everything there is a place for the kitchen knife, a place for the towels and a place for the ironing board! The kitchens have good working surfaces and all rooms have natural light and good air flow. Itʼs all about light and space, giving height and depth to the interiors.”

Dean Lefkos, Director of the Chapter Group says:
“Elland Avenue apartment sizes are much larger than average and we have achieved this without compromising quality or affordability. Apartment prices start at $345,000.” Apartment interiors are beautifully crafted and Mondrian influences are reflected in the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. The black outlines of the floor-to-ceiling doors and windows frame the panoramic views and spacious courtyard or balconies, which are included with all apartments.

Pale timber floors and warm white walls provide a stylish background for residents to create their own look. Well serviced with public transport options, premium shopping, schools, education facilities, parks and leisure centres, Box Hill has strong appeal for owner occupiers and investors alike.
