AUSCO targets Mulgrave as their latest apartment project hits planning

Developer Ausco Group has taken a 6,600sqm site in Mulgrave to planning with the intent of adding 93 new dwellings to their expanding portfolio.

At 2263-2267 Dandenong Road, the Mulgrave project reinforces the developer's preference for developing sites in Melbourne's South Eastern suburbs. Now utilised as the Enjoy Church (East Campus), dual single story brick buildings over the site would make way for a Cera Stribley-designed apartment and townhouse complex.

Indeed the Dandenong Road application brings together the entities who have both enjoyed a period of sustained growth in recent times.

Submitted to the City of Monash last month, the Mulgrave application's dwelling mix consists 5 three bedroom apartments, 63 two bedroom apartments and 15 one bedroom apartments, plus 4 two bedroom townhouses and 6 three bedroom townhouses.

2263-2267 Dandenong Road is only the second residential listing in Mulgrave to appear in the Urban.com.au Project Database, and reinforces the propensity of developers to continue the push of apartments into non recognised higher-density suburbs.

Cera Stribley's design ethos for the project reads as follows:

The main architectural design concept if the proposed building is defined by a clear aesthetic reflecting an industrial vernacular employing exposed brickwork, exposed structural grid elements and the use of metal cladding, brick, and cement render.

The proposed development is broken up into two distinct areas. One set of townhouses along the northern boundary and an apartment building facing Dandenong Road. Each area addresses the different interfaces of each boundary. This allows each building to address individual concerns and stand proud as individual buildings.

The apartment building protects the rest of the site from the busy Dandenong road and has 2 communal gardens/light courts for the residents use and to allow for the optimum internal amenity for the apartments. We have kept to a neutral palette of materials to be complementary to the surrounding neighbourhood.

Whilst 2263-2267 Dandenong Road is fresh to planning, Ausco Group can concern themselves with a number of additional apartments projects in their portfolio.

Mulgrave represents the firm's seventh listing in the Urban.com.au Project Database; all in all Ausco Group now has approximately 430 apartments in development in Melbourne's South Eastern suburbs, plus townhouses and detached housing projects.

Ausco Group has also scaled up in size over their most recent projects. The Clarinade, Collins & Bates and 1234-1236 Nepean Highway all include at least 100 apartments; Collins & Bates is Ausco Group's most recent release for sale whilst the 11-storey Cheltenham project is still at planning and looms as the developer's new headquarters once it is realised.
