The development duo behind Bondi's redevelopment of the Bondi Pacific are back again for a new project around the corner.

Rebel Property Group’s Allen Linz and Capit.el Group’s Eduard Litver have submitted plans for a $12.5m project across an amalgamated site at 34-38 Hall Street, Bondi's popular shopping strip.

The four-level building will have ground floor retail, apartments above, and two-levels of basement parking.

The proposed site forms an important part of the block along Hall St from Jacques to Consett Avenue, with the block bookended by the heritage Post Office to the east.

The proposed site forms an important part of the block along Hall St from Jacques to Consett Avenue, with the block bookended by the heritage Post Office to the east.

Embece Studio was enlisted to design the plans for the Hall St project, taking inspiration from the neighbourhood’s surrounding landscape and greenery.

Mladen Prnjatovic, Ben Green and Chi Melhem teamed up to establish Embece, with the Chippendale-based trio designing everything from bespoke private homes to city-scaled projects and precincts.

“We are proposing to draw this landscape into the architecture of our building, extending it around the corner and into Hall Street, bringing new biodiversity and life into the street,” Embece noted in their design application.

Our design is a direct response to the character of the place. It maximizes the vibrant neighbourhood character of Bondi and makes great places for people to live.”

A palette of white off form concrete and ceramic tiles make up the built form, which has been designed to extend the corner into Hall St from Consett, established through curved geometry and a series of landscaped pockets.

Ground Ink handled the landscape architecture, with significant planting to the rear gardens planned and landscaping integrated into the architecture as well as the roof terrace.

"The landscape character of Consett Avenue turns the corner into Hall street, transforming the experience of the street as well as the apartments within the building," Ground Ink noted.

The Hall Street precinct is currently undergoing significant change and development, with a string of projects recently completed in the area, including the duo’s Pacific, Bondi project, as well as TOGA’s, Bondi Boheme, and the Silvester Fuller designed, The Drift.

Linz recently lodged plans for a sprawling 6,400 sqm Woolloomooloo site, with the $161 million project set to bring 229 apartments across 10-levels, with an extensive rooftop garden landscaped by Ground Ink.
