Dahua Group recently completed their $300 million Hawthorn East apartment development Hawthorn Park, their biggest apartment development in Melbourne.

Designed by Rothelowman, the features a number of amenities, including Melbourne’s first suspended sky pool, theatre rooms and a stunning sky lounge. Delivering a mix of 368 one, two, three and four-bedroom townhome and apartment residences.

The tower also features over 2000 sqm of parkland curated by acclaimed landscape architect Jack Merlo that bring the Hickory-constructed building to life.

Hawthorn Park’s striking 25 metre floating lap pool with glass bottom immediately catches the eye, acting almost as a bridge between two of the four buildings.

Rothelowman said it was the feature of the development they were most looking forward to seeing.

“We were most excited about delivering the pool bridge as it is testament to our collaboration with the contractor Hickory Group and the consultant team, to realise a design which resolves many complex requirements,” Rothelowman’s Frances Hall said.

As well as the pool, Hawthorn Park features a fully-equipped gym with a yoga and meditation studio and massage suites, a sky lounge, hammock lounge, an indoor residents lounge and a garden pavilion.

Along with these amenities are plenty of bookable lounge and dining rooms with fully equipped chef’s kitchen, and the sky pool which features windows and flooring to peer out underwater.

One of Australia’s leading landscape architects Jack Merlo created the central park and a series of garden spaces through Hawthorn Park. They are complete with outdoor areas boasting fruit and vegetable gardens where residents are invited to grow their own produce.

Every apartment has been fitted out with Gaggenau appliances and features floor to ceiling windows and large garden balconies, some offering views of the communal park.

Located in one of Melbourne’s most blue chip suburbs, the Hawthorn East development is surrounded by heritage homes and buildings, cafes, boutiques and bars, as well as a well connected public transport system.

The major train and tram lines that provide services into the Melbourne CBD only six kilometres away.

Residents will be surrounded by nature by being within walking distance of Fritsch Holzer Park, and a cycle to the trail that lines the Yarra River.
