Steller dips back into Moorabbin

Steller's hefty portfolio of current residential projects continues to tick along, as the developer pursues another multi-level development in Moorabbin.

Sited at 13-15 Taylor Street, the pending project would account for a JAX Tyres outlet, and is a continuance of Steller's preference for apartment projects across Melbourne's South Eastern suburbs. Submitted for approval is a 10-storey mixed-use building created by Steller's in-house design team; a move that sees the developer's long favoured architecture firm Ewert Leaf overlooked on this particular project.

In store are 71 apartments across the 1,254 square metre site which holds a frontage of 30 metres to Taylor Street.

Steller has veered away somewhat from their stock-in-trade of large two and three bedroom apartments with 13-15 Taylor Street, electing to add 15 studio apartments into the mix. Not often detected through the Urban Melbourne Project Database, the addition of studio dwellings may well be reflective of the target buyer Steller has in mind.

Studio apartments are supplemented by 52 dual bedroom and 4 triple bedroom apartments within the proposal.

3 retail outlets amounting to 268 square metres, an office of 320 square metres and 86 car parking spaces are present across the design's lower levels.

At 32.6 metres in height, the application's east and west facades are its design highlight featuring white angular balconies contrasting against a black background.

This particular pocket of Moorabbin is beginning to receive a heightened degree of residential activity, as suitably sized sites are secured by developers.

First off the rank was PPHA and MAB Corporation's joint 7 level project fronting South Road, followed by Milbex's 10 level Elenberg Fraser-designed apartment project at 6 Station Street Moorabbin.

Most recently completed was Steller's initial high-density project in this pocket of Moorabbin dubbed 11 Central. Settled during 2016, the seven-level buildings is diagonally opposite the Taylor Street development site.

In the event that Steller's latest project gains approval, it would sit next to a Shangri-La Constructions-controlled approved development of 52 apartments at 17 Taylor Street.
