Builder ABD Group adds another 500 dwellings to its books

Three new projects will appear across Melbourne under the guidance of builder ABD Group.

Among them is the firm's tallest build to date, whilst a further two projects will bolster ABD Group's already extensive credentials in the apartment sector. Combined the three secured acquired builds will add in excess of 500 apartments and serviced apartments to the builder's portfolio, just as ABD Group approached the finish line for a number of other builds under its guidance.

LINC Essendon has been awarded to the builder after a lengthy sales campaign. Revel Development Group is behind the project at 13-21 Russell Street, which is opposite Essendon Railway Station.

Expected is a 10 level, Plus Architecture-designed building above three levels of basement car parking. Retail will front Russell Street with 96 apartments to be added above, whilst a rooftop garden will crown the pending build.

ABD Group is nearing the end of another apartment project for Revel Development Group, namely Reflections which is one of the early projects to appear within North Melbourne's Arden-Macaulay precinct.

Moray Street has also appeared as a new build on ABD Group's website. The substantial project will see another Fender Katsalidis tower realised on Southbank, after initially being submitted for approval during 2015.

Across 18-24 Moray Street, the build will see a new tower rise 38 levels above ground on a modest corner plot of 446sqm. The site was reportedly purchased by a Hong Kong-based developer for $8.8 million in 2016, at a per square metre rate of $20,000.

Initially approved with 124 apartments, ABD Group describes the project as containing 165 serviced and private apartments above a multi-level car stacker system. 18-24 Moray Street also includes a gym, terrace and option for a pool.

Finally, ABD Group signage is now across a major build in its infancy in West Melbourne. The builder has been charged with the delivery of SPEC Property's latest development dubbed Flagstaff Green at 15-31 Batman Street, West Melbourne.

Flagstaff Green is in addition to ABD Group constructing Trilby which is the developer's other current pursuit consisting of 109 apartments at 466-482 Smith Street, Collingwood.

The West Melbourne project, on the other hand, will see 3 basement levels which will underpin 20 above ground levels, for a net result of 247 new apartments, two office tenancies and one new retail space. Flagstaff Green also includes communal amenities such as a pool, spa, gym and landscaped terrace plus courtyard in a project conceived by Inhabit Design.

Works are underway on Flagstaff Green
