The latest apartment project by the award-winning developer, Pace Development Group, is set to invigorate a prominent corner site in Blackburn in Melbourne's east.

Designed in collaboration between Ascui and Co. Architects, interior designer Adele Bates and MDG Landscape Architects, Pace of Blackburn will see four buildings of modern apartments rise from Whitehorse Road, ideally located in close proximity to both transport and surrounding greenery.

There will be street-level retail at the foot of the development, as well as extensive resident amenity.

Priced from $395,000, Urban has had a look at the development in more detail, and highlighted its key features.

1. Location

The corner site fronting Whi​tehorse Road and Railway Road puts residents in the heart of Blackburn, within walking distance to local amenity and extensive transport links connecting to the city.

Pace of Blackburn is just 25 minutes to the CBD with frequent trains and buses. The bus routes 271 and 279 run near the development, and Blackburn train station is just a 10-minute walk.

There's nearby medical services and health and fitness centres. Investors are likely to see a decent uptake from students, with the development located just five kilometres from Deakin University. There are three other universities within an 11 kilometre radius.

Pace of Blackburn does not only boast its own landscaped gardens and indoor pool but is close to one of Melbourne’s largest pockets of greenery, Blackburn Lake Sanctuary.

Local residents can cycle or walk the network of trails that wind through 30-hectares of natural bushland and enjoy the peace that comes from sharing the space with local wildlife.

2. Amenity

Residents at Pace of Blackburn will share a large resort-style pool area, with an 18 metre lap pool and a children's splash pool set in extensive landscaping.

There will be a concierge service, with cold room storage for the safe keeping of groceries.

Residents can book a meeting space, a private dining room with a full chefs kitchen. There's also a library with a fireplace.

3. Convenience

Residents will have access to multiple retail spaces on ground level.

A prominent supermarket chain will feature as the flagship tenant within the precinct, with other retailers to include cafes, restaurants, beauty boutiques and specialty stores, providing the residents and Blackburn locals with an inner-city style of living.

4. The Design

The trio of well regarded architects and designers, Ascui and Co. Architects, interior designer Adele Bates and MDG Landscape Architects, have come together to design every feature down to every detail.

The exterior architecture by Ascui & Co. complements the leafy streetscape of Blackburn, with views framed by oversized windows and an external façade that features warm earthy tones alongside lush landscaping to complete the scene.

5. The Developer

Pace is one of the most respected developers in the business, having delivered over 100 projects over the last 19 years.

The team won the Master Builders Victoria award for Excellence in Construction - Highrise Buildings 2020 for their Abbotsford development, Pace of Abbotsford.

It was Pace's second consecutive win of the award, having won it in 2019 for their Collingwood project Pace of Collingwood, their 100th project.
