In the heart of Melbourne's south-eastern bayside area is ALIA by BCENTRAL, a boutique 30 apartment development setting a new benchmark for luxury multi-residential living in McKinnon.

The market is clearly signalling support for the project which is well over 60% sold including a suburb record for the near $2million full-floor penthouse sale prior to launch, in addition to several recent sub-penthouse sales well over $1million.

Chris Pulvirenti, a Director of Valuation at Savills Australia said, "the market for the right products, carefully designed by experienced operators  was  progressing most steadily as buyers reacted positively to projects that satisfied the right criteria."

A collaborative effort by Perkins Architects, Bruce Henderson Architects and interior design studio ZUNICA, ALIA is anticipated to become the suburb's tallest multi-residential building offering a stunning northerly aspect with views of the city skyline, bay and Dandenong Ranges.

According to Tal Goldman from BCentral, ALIA is perfect for anyone searching for a premium home with world-class amenity.

“This project is so special when it comes to multi-residential living - we have ensured each floor plan is expansive and light-filled, offering that perfect balance of comfort and functionality. Our mantra from day one, was to create the very best residential project McKinnon has been presented with. We focus on doing things right and the results have followed. It is extremely satisfying for the whole development team to have achieved such a lofty goal.”

ALIA residents can expect open-plan layouts offering living spaces from 75sqm to 94sqm for a two-bedroom apartment and up to 130sqm for a three-bedroom residence.

Each kitchen includes luxurious stone bench tops, the latest Asko appliances and fully integrated refrigerator and dishwasher. ALIA bedrooms feature lavish ensuites with freestanding baths. A cohesive scheme of materiality and tactility is offered within each residence. Both 'Autumn' and 'Spring' themes incorporate features such as timber flooring, wool carpet, stone, with hints of metallic throughout.

The feeling of relaxation flows to the building's exterior with sweeping north-facing terraces blurring the line between indoors and outdoors.

“These residences have been designed to accommodate the fast pace of modern life. It’s important  to have somewhere to retreat to after a long day and each of these apartments is a true sanctuary.”

Centrally located just 900 metres from Bentleigh's main shopping strip, ALIA is within walking distance to McKinnon Station, while Brighton Beach is only a 10-minute drive away.

Construction has now commenced with completion slated for December 2020.
