John Street Apartments Box Hill, Melbourne

These well-designed, affordable apartments are centred on a key transport hub.

As the middle-ring suburb of Box Hill in Melbourne’s east develops into a major activity centre, the advantages of increased density around this transport hub become increasingly apparent. Located near the train station, the development comprises a four story building with a mix of student accommodation studios and one bedroom apartments. As demographics change and single-occupant households become more prevalent, apartment living near associated services, and without the need for large-scale infrastructure investment, makes more sense.

The apartments have an on-site manager’s apartment, ground floor reception and lobby, a common room for residents and provision for off-street car parking. Efficient floor plate organisation and generous glazing means these compact apartments are enjoyable and bright to live in, nestled in a leafy corner on John Street.
