Mark Baljak, Awesome photos of Sky One thanks for sharing and for the up-date on this developement, l sincerely hope this goes ahead and gets built, it will sure change the surroundings of Box Hill let me tell you.
l love the look and design of this apartment block and it look similar to Prima Pearl on Southbank.
They are re-developing the display office which has been empty onsite for a few years now. It is getting a big 'curved' metal awning-like structure on the corner and looks like it is being expanded a bit.
Carrington Road is already backed up due to the busses, cars and deliveries. Will be interesting to see how they pull this one off.
Didn't get a photo as I went by, but the display suite is well under construction and large hoardings are up out the front.
Really impressive. Podium treatment is class.
Jeff Xu: Melbourne apartment market strong
Melbourne-based Chinese developer Golden Age insists the Melbourne apartment market is still healthy after launching its landmark Box Hill project, Sky One, over the weekend, shrugging off recent concerns about price falls.
The company is also expecting to launch a luxury apartment development in Sydney’s Rocks district later this year while chasing more projects in the country’s two biggest cities, according to founder and managing director Jeff Xu.
“We are very happy about the sales in the Sky One project in Box Hill over the weekend,” Mr Xu told The Australian. “It is a testament to what we are good at, and proves the demand for quality apartments in Melbourne is still strong.”
Sky One, located at 545 Station Street, is a 36-storey, 122.8 metre apartment tower that will be home to 438 apartments above a three-level food emporium and health, wellbeing and beauty hub. It is Golden Age’s second project in Box Hill.
Eighty-five per cent of stage one was sold on the weekend launch, totalling over $140 million, the company said, noting strong interest from the local market.
“In regards to the property market, what I want to say is the market is not crazy any more, but it is still very strong and healthy. And the huge success of Sky One is a great example,” he said.
Just some larger renders:
Sky One is now under construction, excavator and piling rig working today onsite.
A bit of progress on site
Hurrah. I first worked on this site about 7/8 years ago when the first tower proposal was coming to light (working for a referral authority)
Great to see physical work start.
Bit of work on the loading bay before it really kicks on
Just a really big hole now
Equivalent depth as to collins arch, capitol grand and 35 spring st?
I managed a few pics of the crane yesterday, but nowhere near as good as General Cranes pics
MCG Cranes pics
just about ready to head upwards
Thanks Mark - I train/tram through Box Hill all the time now so will be able to provide some regular updates once it's above ground - as noted it's a real bee hatch to get shots of the pit from ground level its boarded up so well.
