Buxton Projects have secured approval for a new $22 million apartment development in Toorak.

At the start of last year, bought in a company directed by the Buxton property development patriarch Michael Buxton, paid $12.55 million for two adjoining Malvern Road homes, one a single storey brick home with swimming pool and pool house, the other a two level rendered brick home with swimming pool and tennis court

The amalgamated 2,727 sqm site at 1093-1099 Malvern Road will be home to a four-storey apartment development after Buxton recently received sign off from Stonnington Council.

There will be 22 three bedroom apartments and 46 car spaces in the Conrad Architects-designed building, set in Jack Merlo Design & Landscape gardens.

“The proposed apartments will afford a high level of internal amenity for future residents with functional dwelling layouts, appropriate outlooks and private open space, and good levels of daylight access,” the Urbis report noted.

All apartments have a generous floor plan accommodating three bedrooms, with at least one bedroom comprising a walk-in-robe and ensuite, a large open plan living, kitchen and dining area and a separate laundry/butler’s pantry. 

The six ground floor apartments will all have a large outdoor living space with their own built in barbecue. There will be seven apartments on the first level, six on level two and just three on the top level.

“The proposal has been carefully designed by Conrad Architects to produce a modest contemporary development”, the report noted.

The design has incorporated two distinct built forms, separated by a central framing element to Malvern Road to ensure there is not one singular building plane.

 To the east and west, the built form is broken up into three sections to limit the visual bulk to the adjoining properties, one of which is heritage-listed.

Merlo’s landscape plan has been designed to ensure the retention of the Pin Oak and Golden Elm canopy trees located in the south-eastern corner of the site. It will also provide an further two Pin Oaks and 12 medium sized canopy trees around the building.

Four medium sized canopy trees are proposed within the Malvern Road setback to provide a buffer to the streetscape. A significant number of small shrubs, grasses and hedges are also proposed throughout the site to limit bulk impacts to the neighbouring properties.
