Residents have moved in to the completed Glen Waverley apartment project Sky Garden.

The striking project was developed by Golden Age Group to a design by Rothelowman.

With buyers having moved in, Urban spoke to first home buyer Adam Feng about his property buying journey, and what he loves about Sky Garden.

MK: How did you hear about Sky Garden and were you in the market for a new property at the time?

AF: I used to work at The Glen and would often see Sky Garden salespeople at the kiosk and display suite. At the time I didn’t consider buying, but three years later after making enough money, I chose to buy at Sky Garden.

MK: What stood out to you about Sky Garden that assisted you in your decision to buy?

AF: The outdoor environment, especially the huge garden podium. I walk around it at least five times a week, if not every day. 

Also, the lift goes directly to the lower ground floor, where The Glen is, so that’s super convenient.

The soundproofing in my apartment is really effective. Even though I’m facing Springvale Road which can be quite busy, the noise is completely blocked out.

MK: What made you decide to buy off-the-plan rather than an existing dwelling?

AF: My apartment was new but already finished when I moved in. 

MK: What do you love most about living at the development?

AF: I love the sauna and pool. Not many people use it at 7am, so when my girlfriend and I work out in the morning, we have the whole place to ourselves. We use it at least five times a week. 

MK: Is this your first property purchase? How did you find the due diligence research and purchase process?

AF: Yes, it’s my first property purchase. I decided I wanted to buy at 18 and started saving, and settled at Sky Garden at the age of 20. The purchase process was good, my only recommendation would be to ensure you do enough research on your own personal financial situation before looking to buy

MK: Which colour scheme did you choose for your apartment and how did you personalise your home?

AF: I chose my apartment for its lucky number (909A) over the colour scheme (which is light) and also for its view facing the bay and south side. We can see the police academy on top of the hill which is pretty cool. 

Our one-bedroom apartment is perfect for my girlfriend and I, but we bought a sofa bed in case we have visitors. There is a large floor-to-ceiling window, which we have positioned my girlfriend’s piano beside — that’s probably the most creative thing we have done with the place.

MK: Would you recommend living at a lifestyle precinct like Sky Garden?  

AF: I would definitely recommend Sky Garden. Firstly because it’s super convenient in terms of location and having The Glen right downstairs. 

Secondly, the views are unobstructed as we’re the tallest building in the area so when I look out my window there’s nothing in the way, unlike the city.
