Display suite launched in Abbotsford

A series of 19 luxury townhouses are being developed in Melbourne's Abbotsford by developer Kalex, with the display suite launched on Saturday.

The development, called Park & Raphael, is priced from $875,000 to $1.35 million and is due to be completed by late-2014.

Located from 59 to 67 Park Street, including frontages on Raphael Street, there will be a choice of two- or three-bedrooms, spanning 150 to 220sqm on two to three levels.

Founder of Kalex, Kyp Bosci, said that it's a well-located development and has been selected specifically to get the most of the lifestyle elements.

“On the one hand it is secluded – nestled amid parkland – and on the other it’sconnected to the CBD, the inner north and the city’s entertainment precincts. That’ssomething unique in Melbourne and only Abbotsford can offer," Bosci said.

Award-winning architecture firm Jackson Clements Burrows is involved in the project, along with interiors from DesignOffice, Great Dane Furniture will be available for consultation and furniture selection and landscaping from Urban Commons is included.

Principal architect, Tim Jackson, said that surrounding terrace houses and warehouse conversions were behind the inspiration for the design.

“We were conscious of the aesthetic and heritage streetscape that exists in this patch of Abbotsford and wanted to retain the integrity of that local character, as well as offering new ideas about what contemporary townhouse living can be," said Jackson.
