City of Monash already boasts the biggest mixed-use development under construction outside of Melbourne's CBD in Clayton's M-City, and now another can be added to the list.

Oakleigh's OROS has been awarded to builder ABD Group, with site works already underway. Located across 807-811 Warrigal Road, OROS is developer Viapac Group's largest project to date and makes good on the initial development application which reached Council during 2016.

ABD Group is charged with delivering the development which has a construction value just shy of $130 million.

The 9,605 square metre site is set to accommodate three buildings with the tallest rising 14 levels. Hundreds of apartments are to be supplemented by 106 serviced apartments, split between 27 studio, 74 single bedroom and 5 double bedroom layouts.

Various dining/retail spaces and a supermarket amount to in excess of 2,000 square metres of activated space at ground level. Prior to the build emerging above ground, basement works will be undertaken in order to create hundreds of new car parking spaces.

OROS will also include a bevvy of amenities for residents and visitors. A rooftop communal space and cinema, swimming pool and yoga studio are present, as is a communal vegetable patch and a high level of external greenery.

Rothelowman designed OROS's overall form with landscape architect duties falling to Rush Wright Associates.

Viapac Group also has a number of other residential projects on the radar.

West Melbourne's Rosslyn Street will play host to Townhaus which is the work of architecture firm Genton. The 37 high end townhouses will mirror what Viapac Group have in store for South Yarra's 72 River Street, which was offered for sale as a permitted development site during 2016.

At the time the project was billed as containing "22 high quality owner-occupier styled apartments" by selling agent CBRE, although Viapac Group has chosen to chase the ultra-luxury market with a reconfigured building. Now seven apartments are expected within the building which has a 400 square metre footprint; each apartment includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
