The Box Hill development news wrap

After consecutive years of towers upon towers coming to the fore, Box Hill is in a planning lull. Although the development scene is still exceptionally strong, the dearth of major applications at planning is allowing the suburb to absorb current stock. At this stage 837 Whitehorse Road is the major project under assessment; it is looking to add apartments and a hotel component on what is now a Bridgestone dealership. In terms of major projects...

Prospect Street shapes as Box Hill's next go-to development strip

High-rise development sites number four and five have come under the microscope along Box Hill's Prospect Street, further pushing its credentials as the suburb's next major apartment strip. Running parallel to Whitehorse Road, Prospect Street is "in an area inviting substantially increased intensity of use and activities consistent with an increased urbanisation."

Another Box Hill brute emerges from the pack

Panorama Box Hill is shaping as the latest skyscraper project destined for the irrepressible eastern suburb. Registrations of interest are now being taken for the predominantly residential development which looks set for a major Whitehorse Road land holding. No address for Panorama Box Hill has been given via the project website, perhaps because it's likely 826-828 Whitehorse Road which has yet to receive formal approval from City of Whitehorse...

Epworth Eastern rises to match Box Hill's booming population's needs

Epworth Eastern is seeking to add another tower to Box Hill's burgeoning skyline. Whilst previous additions to Epworth's Box Hill location spanning back to 2003 have been sprawling low-rise builds, the health provider is in the midst of seeking approval for a 62m Silver Thomas Hanley-designed tower that would underpin its future operations onsite and cater for the immediate area's booming population.

999 Box Hill adds to the suburb's growing residential stock

Located at 999 Whitehorse Road and designed by Hayball, 999 Box Hill is a 12-storey development of 90 apartments which seeks to add to Box Hill's expanding apartment market. The development also continues the expansion of Hayball's Box Hill portfolio, and shares DNA with a number of other Hayball-designed projects in the area. The liberal use of textured concrete is very much characteristic of a minimalist aesthetic and restrained material...

Box Hill bubbles along with multiple new towers at planning

Box Hill continues to rack up significant planning applications, with the eastern hub showing no sign of slowing in its skyward progression. Three significant proposals are in the works, potentially adding hundreds of new apartments to the Box Hill market, which has well and truly blossomed over recent years. Ausgood Development Pty Ltd is proposing a 14 level tower directly opposite Box Hill Hospital, the first time that a tower of that...

Is this Box Hill's next big tower?

Taouk Architects may be preparing the latest entrant into Box Hill's flourishing apartment tower scene. The expanding architecture firm is running with detailed images of a substantial residential tower at 34-36 Prospect Street. Whether or not the images form part of a package that will head to planning remains to be seen, but their emergence further reinforces Box Hill's apartment tower credentials. Currently 34-36 Prospect Street is a...
