Construction has commenced on a $46 million build-to-rent apartment project in Melbourne’s inner north suburb of Brunswick, developed by Pelliocano.

Designed by 6-Degrees Architects, the 70-apartment project, Solarino House, will comprise one, two and three-bedroom apartments, a communal rooftop and ground floor retail.

Pellicano will offer a mix of short-term, long-term arrangements, with hotel-style services including dry cleaning, apartment cleaning and share cars.

The build-to-rent sector aims to address Australia’s affordable housing crisis by offering flexible leasing options and shared spaces.

Pellicano has also introduced a cloud-based app, Pellicano Connect, to keep its members engaged, informed and connected.

The group, which was founded in 1967 by brothers Frank and Nunzio Pellicano, has an established portfolio of build-to-rent projects including a recent development in Brisbane’s WYNNUM WEST.

The townhouse project, Arbor Park, is comprised of 67 dwellings located at 2037 Wynnum Road.

“Build-to-rent is a model we’re committed to as a business off the back of these projects. We want to keep pushing the envelope in terms of the level of service we offer our members”, said director Nando Pellicano.

The family’s wealth is now estimated to sit at $285 million by the BRW Rich List in 2014.

Solarino House will be delivered under Pellicano’s ‘Pellicano Living’ banner.
