YarraBend, a new Melbourne suburb being developed by Glenvill, will soon witness a luxury apartment project come up which has been designed by architects DKO.

Parkview Apartments in Melbourne’s Alphington will comprise 120 units in configurations of one, two and three bedrooms, starting from $455,000. 

According to the description, Parkview will be the first apartment project within YarraBend and one of the first to be designed in line with Victoria’s Better Apartments Design Standards, ensuring liveable and sustainable designs are prioritised throughout the space.

Conceived by DKO, the apartments are designed to complement their natural environment, nearby parklands and the Yarra River.

The design brief by YarraBend for the entire site is to help create an urban renewal development of international standard, equal to New York’s Meat Packing District and London’s Canary Wharf with a considered and future-proof design that appealed to a discerning taste.

DKO’s design considers the historic buildings on the site, whilst creating a contemporary space with minimalist interiors.

“The design of the apartments provide space for landscaped gardens on the ground floor and generous balconies for units above, which take advantage of spectacular views to the river, surrounding parks and the city,” said Koos de Keijzer, principal at DKO Architecture.

The 120 apartments are available in one, two and three bedrooms, starting from $455,000.

YarraBend says it has doubled its three-bedroom offering in response to market demand.

Each unit features high ceilings, large, double glazed windows and balcony with views.

There is also smart-wired lighting for select apartments and Miele appliances.

Communal amenities include a rooftop terrace with pool and heated spa, residents’ lounge with fireplace, a wine cellar and a resident gym.

A shopping centre is planned next to the development.

YarraBend’s creative director Len Warson said the project would set new benchmarks in design and urban liveability.

YarraBend will be a new Northern gateway opening up a huge parcel of riverfront land that was previously industrial and inaccessible,” Warson said.

“We are creating incredible world-class amenities such as a health and wellness centre and cutting-edge gym equipment with cloud based fitness training.”

“A YarraBend app connecting the residents to a variety of conveniences such as a tech concierge (a Glenvill innovation).” says Warson.
