A campus-style development in Clayton draws vacant neighbouring land into the heart of the project.
The previously vacant site in Gardiner Road benefits from a reserve on one side, owned by Melbourne Water, and a sporting ground on the other.
A stone's throw from Monash University, this site was waiting to be developed. Designed by Plus Architecture for the Lechte Corporation, the initial scheme was for only two-storey townhouses.
"There's a strong demand for townhouses, not only in Clayton, but in the broader Melbourne area," says architect Craig Yelland, one of seven directors of the practice. "The city of Monash was keen to include apartments, as well as townhouses, as they also saw a shortage in this area as well," he adds.
