Located on Station Street near the corner of Whitehorse Road, the contemporary project will comprise 100 well-appointed one and two bedroom apartments designed by Plus Architecture.
Situated 14 kilometres from the CBD, the project will deliver a unique convergence of work, leisure and transport opportunities to residents.

“Reflecting the urban character of Box Hill, Belle Box Hill will provide a beautiful home for residents and we are excited to deliver a new standard of contemporary living to the area,” Mr Fox said.
Designed by renowned Melbourne based architecture practice, Plus Architecture the nine storey building features weave like detail on the façade to create movement and interest, with a clearly defined tower form set back above a podium to integrate with the existing streetscape and provide an intimate feeling at ground level.
When designing the project, Plus Architecture took cues from the areas strong multicultural history, a weave treatment was incorporated throughout the building’s design translating into a series of articulated angled walls that appear to weave in and out of each other.
An impressive entry lobby will create intrigue on street level featuring expansive double height ceilings and curved undulating walls backlit against a woven block exterior, providing a luminous and striking area that explores texture, space and light.
The ground floor will also include resident facilities to engage with their neighbours including a dining area with a full kitchen, lounge and library, private cinema room and a landscaped outdoor entertaining space with barbeque facilities.
“Creating inviting communal spaces as an extension of residences will ensure Belle Box Hill residents can engage with each other and entertain friends and family with ease,” says Fox.
