Construction is underway on the new Carlton apart​ment development, Encompass.

Designed by renowned architects Jackson Architecture and located on the corner of Elgin and Nicholson Streets, Encompass is a joint venture between Frasers Property Australia and Citta Property Group.

Encompass, which will be a minimum 5-star energy rated residential building, has already sold over 50 per cent of its 115 apartments.

Harris HMC has been appointed as the builder and construction of the residential tower is expected to reach completion in mid-2023.

Sarah Bloom, General Manager Development Victoria, Frasers Property Australia, says the expansive city views, location just 2.5km from Melbourne’s CBD as well as having local cafes, shops and restaurants at its doorstep, make Encompass a popular choice for purchasers wanting to experience cosmopolitan Carlton.

“There is a real ‘wow’ factor to Encompass, not only from its impressive aesthetic design, but also its many sustainability features, such as water management initiatives, natural light and ventilation to every corridor, consideration of orientation and shading maximising light and ventilation to all apartments,” Bloom says.

“With all these benefits on offer in one place, it’s no wonder that more than 50% of Encompass’s apartments have already been sold.

“We’re excited to get started and to mark this exciting milestone with our project partners and members of the community,” she says.

Alister Woods, Director, Citta Property Group says Encompass combines stunning architecture with premium amenities for residents to create a compelling lifestyle offer for buyers.

“Encompass will elevate the local community with its striking design and range of quality resident facilities," Woods says.

"The strong sales achieved to date demonstrate the value proposition Encompass represents and today’s sod-turning means we’re on the way to delivering a premium quality, sustainable, lifestyle-focused development that takes full advantage of its convenient and cosmopolitan Carlton location."

The eight-level building, offering a mix of one, two and three- bedroom apartments, is set to cater to a wide range of purchasers, from first home buyers and young families to downsizers and investors.

Each apartment will include its own private balcony or courtyard, accessed by floor-to-ceiling sliding doors. There will be 2.7 metre high ceilings to living areas, premium kitchen appliances, oak timber finish floors in living areas and 100% wool loop pile carpet in the bedrooms.

Another highlight is the residents-only rooftop lounge, complete with alfresco dining area and outdoor barbeque, fully-equipped kitchen and a formal lounge area with television and library.
