The Age Apartment Guide
23rd March 2013
For a company called Little Projects, it has some very large developments under its belt. For instance, a 388-apartment project called Ilk at 227 Toorak Road in South Yarra, which sold out well before its scheduled completion later this year.
Building on that success, Little Projects launched Central South Yarra late last year, a 30-storey apartment development at 3 Yarra Street, within Forrest Hill Precinct, and the company says close to 50 per cent of the apartments there are already sold.
“The Forrest Hill precinct of South Yarra is quickly transforming into Melbourne’s most enviable location with the new apartment buildings attracting the trendiest cafes, restaurants, and fashion retailers to the area.” Says Little Project’s managing director, Michael Fox.
“The precinct has really come alive in the past few months since the opening of Two Birds One Stone and Claremont Tonic on Claremont Street and Mama Baba in Daly Street. Our residents will be spoiled for choice enjoying this enviable inner city lifestyle.
“There is this great laneway culture emerging. We have watched this precinct grow and it’s exciting to see so many people flocking to the area on evenings and weekends. It really is a great place to be.”
Central South Yarra’s one-bedroom apartments start at $352,000, two bedroom apartments with one bathroom start from $590,000 and two bedroom apartments with two bathrooms start from $745,000. Floor areas range from 45 square metres to 106 square metres, and a penthouse is still available with 220 square metres of internal space for $2.75 million.
“Inside, there’s a resident’s retreat high on the rooftop of level 30,”Mr Fox says. “The kitchen has floor-to-ceiling windows; the dining room is the perfect space to host a dinner party with a 10-seater dining table; and there’s a spacious lounge where residents and guests can unwind by the fireplace.
“Residents can enjoy the best of the South Yarra area, with Yarra Lane, Claremont Street, Toorak Road and Chapel Street all just footsteps away. The city is only a short train ride away and easily accessible by foot, bike, tram or car.”
Mr Fox says Ilk residents will also be able to enjoy a large private roof garden with landscaped spaces, barbecues, a communal dining area, large indoor-outdoor cinema room, and a tranquil pool complimented by a large outdoor deck, sauna and gym.
“We tend to dedicate some of the best views and spaces like the rooftop to a communal amenity, which allows more residents to enjoy them.”
