Description

Melbourne Quarter symbolises contemporary urban living celebrating the connectedness of a city lifestyle.

The residential component of Melbourne Quarter comprises apartments within three towers. Summer Housing's ten 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom dwellings are 'peppered' throughout the first tower (East Tower), which delivers 719 meticulously designed modern apartments.

With Melbourne's first public Sky Park located within the precinct, Melbourne Quarter residents are afforded a unique viewing platform to relax and enjoy the precinct's surrounds.

Designed for people with high physical support needs, the single-level apartments feature customisable kitchen, laundry and bathroom features and a two-way communications system that enables tenants to contact concierge services in the event of an emergency or for unplanned support. Apartments are assistive technology ready, and have structural provisions for the installation of ceiling hoists.

The average apartment size (internal area) of the Melbourne Quarter apartments is 75.8 square metres.

The beautifully presented apartments have been designed to achieve Platinum level certification under Livable Housing Design Guidelines and meet High Physical Support design requirements under the NDIS.

The apartments will be enrolled with the NDIA as Specialist Disability Accommodation 1 Bedroom, 1 Resident High Physical Support Apartments.

The apartments are due to complete in mid 2020.
